Busy and Fun, A Rare Occurrence

I’ve been so busy lately that the last thing I want to do in a post is reflect on how busy the last two months of my life have been.

But, whatever, because it’s been a good busy.

Like I said in an earlier post at the beginning of the semester I decided to join a sorority here. Since the end of January I have been spending a lot of time getting to know the girls in our class. It’s been so busy. And normally when I get this busy I fall under immense stress and turmoil and my whole life feels like it might be over.

Not this month, though. Part of this is about time management, and the other part is about how much fun I’m having. I’m doing more than I ever thought I could handle but that can’t beat the people I’m meeting and spending time with. It’s truly shaping up to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, though I think that I will be able to say that with even more gusto once I’m a senior.

For example, last Friday night we watched movie with our brother fraternity and then went to the Science Center afterwards to play sardines. It was so fun! I’m so happy to be surrounded by such a lovely, supportive group of people.

On Saturday, we went on a donut run together for one of the girl’s birthdays! It was great to be able to celebrate with her while munching on one of Hope’s delicacies.

There are so many ways to meet people on Hope’s campus, and this is just the way that I have chosen to branch out after feeling like other opportunities weren’t working as well for me. I’m so glad that I did! When my time frees up next week… I don’t know what I’m going to do. Yeah, it’s been busy, but I kind of like it.

Plus, Big keeps sending me gifts. [Big stands for Big Sister. This is an older girl in the sorority who gets paired up with you to help support you and be there for you! Since Big Sisters also have Big Sisters, this creates a family line. It’s really cool to see how far back your family line goes!]

Hey there, my name's Brooke and I'm a sophomore at Hope right now from the southeast side of the state! I'm majoring in secondary English education with a psychology minor, so that I can spread the love of literature everywhere and maybe even become a counselor to help kiddos out with their current and future school life. So far at Hope I've helped with Time to Serve, joined a bible study, am 1-8 song girl, and a member of Greek Life! The only TV show I watch is New Girl, and I love reading young adult lit!
