Day Two

October 27, 2008 at 11:14 pm (Uncategorized)

Well, it isn’t all sunshine and daisies over here. No pun intended. There are actually a lot of daisies around. Some over my computer, and a billion in the Shanties Club Books. It’s just gonna be a long week.

I miss my friends. I miss dinner with everyone. It kinda feels like those first few days I was back home for the summer, when nothing quite clicked how it should. I’m on one crazy schedule for being a Full Member, others are running on a new member’s schedule, and it feels like the two paths never cross. I was praying to see someone when I went into the caf today that wasn’t in Shantih. Not because I don’t love those girls, but because I need something that isn’t club in my life. That prayer wasn’t answered, which is probably God’s way of telling me to suck it up. It’s only a week.

Don’t get me wrong; tonight was a BLAST! But it’s the afternoons that hurt. When I’m the only one without a single thing to do. It’s lonely. I wish I had a thousand papers to write so that I wouldn’t have all this time to be stuck in my head. Oh well. At least the evenings are fun.

The girls are doing really great. Tonight was a lot of fun with their little skits. Got some very creative ones to be sure! And the cheering was a lot of fun. Most people who know me are probably fairly shocked to hear me say that. But…it’s more because it’s just screaming for my club, my sisters. They did really well. Oh so very loud. I’m really pretty impressed.

So many memories. Last year was a lot of fun, running around like a crazy person, trying to decide which homework actually had to be done, meeting new people. Orange crushing (I think Kaleb broke my rib earlier tonight…) Lots of good memories. Even when I got in trouble….thinking back, I kinda did that a lot. Hm. Rough night was awesome though. I’ll have to put that story up sometime. So much fun. I miss that side of pledge week.

But, there it is. A bittersweet week. Lots of fun meeting new people, a constant heartache missing my other friends. What’s a girl to do?

Eat chocolate? Sounds good enough to me!

Club Week From the Other Side

October 26, 2008 at 9:33 pm (Uncategorized)

Well, last year was fun. It was crazy, a lot of fun, and a good deal of stress. I don’t know how I managed to do the club stuff, hang out with friends, do homework, and get to bed at a decent hour. But I did. Probably because I was a Freshie and classes were easy. It’s possible as a Sophomore or Junior, I know, but I’m glad I’ve done it. Cause I probably wouldn’t be in a club if I hadn’t joined last year. Not that it will be that bad for those who are in that boat (deep breath, calm down), I just don’t care enough to put myself through any great deal of stress. 😛 Well, it’s going to be interesting. To my lovely friends going through it all, best of luck. You’ll survive (maybe even thrive), and probably end up looking back fondly. I know I do! I’ll be praying for ya’ll. I’ll try to be understanding. And I love you. And God loves you. Hey, remember, no matter what, we’re all going to heaven. 🙂

But, it’s interesting on the other side. A lot less work, I’m sure. I mean, I can’t be sure yet, but looks that way. I’m so hyped for all club devo! Especially since I don’t have to get up in front of everyone and cheer. It’s really a lot of fun. And it ends a lot earlier than I thought. All Club at 10? Eh, whatever. There’s more than enough to keep everyone busy. 😉 There’s some really fun stuff planned. I’m not entirely excited because, just like last year, it means taking a big step away from friends and towards the club. Not that I don’t LOVE my club, but I really do have the most amazing friends of anyone on campus.

The new girls seem really awesome. They’re very diverse, and it’s going to take time to learn everyone, but it’ll be an adventure. Now, it’s their job to learn everyone’s name and get my signature. Mwaha. But, I’ll be nice. You know me. It’s going to be fun. Yeah, there’s some not-so-positives about this week, but it’s only a week. No matter what, it can only go on for so long. And, awesome Honors Halloween Party on Saturday. Can’t wait. It’s only a week. I’ve been through worse.

Pretty much, it’s going to be awesome. It’s going to have it’s bad days (there are some people I’m going to miss talking to…a lot.), but it’s going to be fun no matter what. Hehe…Tuesday’s gonna be incredible.

So, here it goes. Best of luck, friends. I’m here 24/7. And you ought to know my cell is ALWAYS on. Don’t let it overwhelm you. Though I really don’t think it will. 🙂

Much Love.
