A Little Seersucker Sass

Posts Tagged ‘recruitment

Well it has been a very long week, but I will give you all some highlights.

1. I am no longer without a housing assignment!  Woo Hoo!  I will be living with my sorority sisters and couldn’t be happier about that.  I want to enjoy every last minute with them before I enter the dreaded big girl world.  Yikes!  It is hard to imagine what I’m going to do when I’m in law school and know no one, since I’m used to seeing at least 10 sisters a day during the school year.

2. 14 days to bid day!  It seems like the longest 14 days of my life.  Having my little or grandlittle look my direction and not be able to speak to them breaks my heart. 

3. Which leads me to point 3.  Part of my role as a Recruitment Counselor is to work move-in day.  I am not a morning person by any means, so when I found out that I had to be at my university at 5:45 a.m., I was pretty sure this was a sick joke.  But it wasn’t, so I got my self up, and even made it 3 minutes early.  One thing I have really become aware of about myself is the way that I act when I’m in a bad mood.  You could offer me a free trip to anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, and I would still find something to complain about.  This is something I don’t like about myself, so I have been working on it a lot.  To my surpirse, I managed to stay in a positive mood.  When others around me whined, I put a positive spin on things and went about my way.  I made sure all of the girls knew how much they were appreciated, and tried to let them leave and get breakfast diplomatically.  I was pleased with how the day went, but definitely ready to crash afterwards.

4. I had a meeting with my Journey Reunion Group this week and it was just what I needed.  Its nice to spend time with other women who went on a journey to find a deep relationship with Christ.  One of the girls is planning a wedding for next August!  Its just amazing to bond with people who have hearts like mine.

5. One of my best friends is expecting twins! Today she found the most beautiful wedding dress.  Since I couldn’t be there, she sent me pictures.  I am in love with her dress and couldn’t be happier for her.  I am just hoping that she will be able to find the financial means to cover the rest of the $700 dress.

6. I was able to catch up with one of my best friends this week and get sushi!  Since I lived almost an hour away from all of my friends and generally had to close at work on half-price sushi day, this was a treat for me!  Its nice to be able to take a break from such a crazy schedule

7. There was a devastating loss in my hometown this week.  Please keep them in your prayers.  It is devastating when any life is lost, especially someone that is so successful and such an example.

That is basically it.  What have y’all been into this week?  Hope everyone has a great start back to school!

Its that time of the year again… Back to school!  I don’t know about you, but this is my absolute favorite time of the year.  I can’t even explain how much I love it – the weather, fall fashions, warm Starbucks orders, Recruitment – you name it! 

While packing up to move, I realized I was in a slight conundrum… I have no way of carrying my books!  Every year I use my sorority’s bid day bag as a book bag, but this year since I am a recruitment counselor, I won’t be receiving that until September 9 (trust me, I am counting down the days.) 

Here are my picks for a new bookbag!

1. Lilly Pulitzer Tote

My cousin bought me a bag similar to this for my 21st birthday!  It is so convenient for carrying books and binders.  A lot of bags make me super nervous because I’m afraid that I’ll ruin them, but this one has been so sturdy.

P.S. – They have matching wallets, phone cases, cell covers, tumblers, etc.  If you’re matchy-matchy like I am, this is perfection!

2. Longchamp Le Pliage

I picked one of these up while in Vegas last September.  I LOVE it, to say the least.  I am so messy and always running late, so I have a bad habit of carrying food with me and leaving it in my bag.  You can easily wipe off whatever mess you might get on the bag.  I accidentally got some crumbs in there and used the suction tool on my vacuum to clean it out.

P.S. – Check out the Longchamp key chains!  I have one that is to die for.

3. L.L. Bean Monogrammed Backpack

The classic – an L.L. Bean Monogrammed backpack.  For when you want something a little more functional and a little less cutesy. 

P.S. – They last forever.  I still have my hot pink one from middle school and you better believe I still carry it!

What are your favorite back to school bags?

I’m sure by this point we’ve all heard the story of Chicken Little.  A sweet little chicken with a bad case of anxiety who always thinks the sky is falling.  I will never forget when I was having a crisis and venting to my friend Jon, who told me “Slow down, Chicken Little!  The sky isn’t falling yet”  I try to remind myself this in every situation.

I’ve been taking a summer class and I am not a strong math student.  At all.  Like I have no idea how I’ve gotten this far and have gotten through my math classes with A’s and B’s.  I am scheduled to graduate in December, however, if I don’t pass this summer class I will be taking a “victory lap” and graduating in May.  To be completely honest, my brain is exhausted and the only thing getting me through has been the fact that I’ll have a 7 month break before law school.

Well, it turns out I have a C- in the class.  I don’t make C’s, but I just needed a C to pass.  And I was going to take that and be happy with it.  But realizing I hadn’t passed the class put me into some major depression and it seemed like everything kept going downhill.  My housing situation depended on my graduation status (I still don’t know where I’m living.)  I have a chronic illness that decided to act up.  I forgot my best friend’s birthday.  My piece of junk computer crashed.  I was behind on my dues.  I realized that being a Recruitment Counselor meant I wouldn’t be seeing my sisters until September.  I got mad at God because I couldn’t understand why his plan and my plan didn’t match up and I didn’t know why he would want me to be in such distress.

Finally, I came to terms with the fact that I wasn’t graduating on time.  I decided I would take more legal studies classes to fill the extra spaces and try to pick up an internship.  I bonded with my fellow Recruitment Counselors.  I emailed our treasurer and explained the situation.  She was beyond understanding and I even managed to make a payment.  I decided I would get involved with Relay again in the spring, as it is something that is so near and dear to my heart. And I prayed and prayed and prayed.

Today I got an email from my professor allowing me to re-take a take home exam.  Basically, if I can boost my score a little, I will get my C (at least) and graduate on time!  And now that I actually understand how to do the work, I have faith that I can.  I still have no idea where I’m living in the fall, but that will work itself out.  If worse comes to worse I’ll sleep in our chapter room until everything works itself out.

I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their week!  And remember, just because its gloomy out, it doesn’t mean the sky is falling!

After lots of tweets about it, I finally started a blog!  I’m excited to have a way to share things without a 140 count limit.  I’m still trying to figure things out, so bear with me because I know the site looks rough right now.  Haha.  I promise that it will get better : )
What are some things that you would like to see me post about in the future?  I plan on doing fashion, beauty, recruitment tips, crafts, and things of that nature.  I would also LOVE to have some guest bloggers, so if anyone is interested, let me know!!  I’m hoping the site will eventually have some giveaways by the time Christmas rolls around.
Y’all are the best followers ever & I love y’all so much!  Have a happy weekend : )
