Don't misunderstand this post. I am not in a sorority, nor will I ever be in one. I have friends who are in them from college (who doesn't? They are everywhere) but I never wanted to be in one. Especially the ones at my college back East. Each house was so stereotypical- you had the house with all the Jewish girls, the house who was the richest and who were also drug dealers, the house with the reputation for only selecting big-boned girls, etc. And rush, don't even get me started on rush. You could tell who were rushing because they all dressed alike--with the black pants and whatever name brand swag they could carry.
But here's my confession. I am in a sorority. A virtual one that is. On Facebook. The past 48 hours I've been playing "Sorority Life" on Facebook. And it's totally addicting. I'm already on level 13, working as a research assistant making $1,000 per paycheck, using all of my energy to organize social events, such as blind dates, spring break trips, and freshmen ice breakers. And did I mention all the swag I have? Oh my goodness, I have gorgeous outfits, expensive shoes, two ipods and cell phones, a ton of confidence, and the house mom has awarded me with 15 brownie points. Am I so cool or what?? Now if I could only win a few fights...but I need more "sisters" in my house first. Wanna rush my house? Look for me, I'm Olivia Hudson, dressed in the hot pink tube top, black leggings, and DKNY saddle pumps.
