So... about the whole sorority thing...


I think I was delusional. Or something. I don't have very many girlfriends to do things with. Not that live in the state anyways. And I think I just wanted that female companionship. But I've decided now, that I wouldn't join a sorority now if they payed me!

Its funny tho. Sorority girls always think that other sorority girls are just as sweet as can be. The rest of know that most of them are bitchy skanks. Right now the ADPi pledges are wearing t-shirts with flip flops on the back and they say, "We started the sorority in 1851. So walk in our shoes, or follow in our shadows". Or something like that. I don't understand why they think they are so much better then everyone else? I mean, whats so great about being part of a group of people who are exactly like you? You all dress the same, act the same, look similar... whats so great about that? Part of what is great about my friends is that we all have some things in common, but for the most part, we're entirely different people from different backgrounds, different places, etc.

I wouldn't want all my friends to be just like me for the same reason I don't want to date anyone just like me. I mean, if you have ALL the same interests and like ALL the same things, its going to get really boring.

But whatever. Thats just me. Other then Aimee (and she's part of a Christian sorority) and Allie (who I knew before she pledged), I have NEVER met a sorority girl that I liked. And I really don't see that changing.

Although, I'm sure around Airband, I'll want to pledge, but I don't see it ever happening. I can think of better things to spend $400 + a semester on. Like purses, shoes and clothes. But most of these girls have mommy and daddy paying for everything and don't realize what its like to have to work, and have bills to pay. The lack of sorority girls was one thing I DEFINETLY didn't miss about this place.

hahaha, you sound just like me. there was a brief moment when i thought about pledging. but then i had the same revelation as you. my friends are all soooo different and that's why i love them!!! i don't need to be forced to wear the same shirt and pants as 50 other girls. i hate being fake and pretending to love a bunch of people. i prefer to choose my friends based on their personality, not their letters.

and man oh man, that $400 bucks (or more!!) could go to way more fun stuff. ;)

Yeah, my brief moment can be categorized as temp. insanity inspired by loss of female companionship. But its so funny. All the little pledges in their blue shirts and rainbows and jeans just walk around campus and see another girl in a blue shirt and hug and are all "Hey sweetie!". They probably don't even know each others names.

Morons. And the funny thing is, they think us non greek girls are jealous of them.

Hehe, I know for a fact some of them don't know each others names around here. It's absolutely great. They can keep allllll that stuff. I'm quite happy with my place in life (and $400 a semester richer ;) )

my two cents

you dont know me, but you seem to think you do.

i hope you realize that not all sorority girls are what you so unfairly believe. all of my sisters are different, from different backgrounds, have different hobbies, and have different ways of going about their lives. that's what makes it great. we simply share the bond of sisterhood, that's all! i couldn't be happier, and i've maintained my individuality through it all. what's even funnier is that they like me the way i am, i dont have to be like them or act a certain way like you so unfortunately believe. oh, and i know all of their names -- in fact, i probably know more about them than i do myself, my own mother or my best friend from home. they know me like the back of their hands. it's a family, and you shouldn't *KNOCK* it until you try it. lastly, i work hard and pay for everything myself. now that you mention bills and such, there are lots of "non-greeks" like you little girls say who DON'T work and who DON'T have the slightest idea what it's like to work. stereotyping is wrong, but i feel sorry for you because i think you *are* jealous or else you wouldn't sit at your computer ranting alllll day about something you have no idea about.

get real.

Re: my two cents

No thank you. I don't want to try it.
I'm not jealous. I could freakin' care less. The sorority girls at MY school are the ones I'm referring to. Not you.

And just so you know, one of my best friends is a sorority girl.

So unless you go to UNC-Charlotte and act like your fucking better then everyone else, get over it.

Not everyone has to be in a sorority.
Not everyone has to like sorority girls.
And everyone is entitled to their own fucking opinion.

So don't bash me, or bash what I think or believe based on one journal entry (which, btw, took me 10 minutes to write and I did it on a break between classes).

And I know more about sororitys and the girls who are in them then you could ever imagine.

You get real. And get off my back.

Re: my two cents

And also, I didn;t say none of them know each others names. But a girl who is an aquaintance of mine just pledged and she said there were so many of them, she can't remember anyones names except for her "big sisters" name.

And I'm very happy that you're so happy in a sorority.
But I am too much of an individual and I dislike girls too much to ever be a part of a sisterhood.

Re: my two cents

just something I observed, but if the girl just pledged, no wonder she didn't remember everyone's names. I pledged in the fall and that's a lot of names to remember...but after a couple of weeks of hanging out with them, you remember them. You try remembering 50+ names in a day or so and see how well you do it. One other thing, if you aren't in a sorority, then how do you know more about them and the girls in them than someone who is in one?? I really don't think that's possible. To know it all, you have to experience it...unless you just like to think you know it all. And I agree with palegreenstars7...you may say you're not jealous, and you may not be, but I find it hard to believe that people like to just sit here and talk about sorority girls if they didn't have some kind of wanting there in the back of their mind.
