First off, it's Wednesday!! Here's your weekly reminder to get those posts ready for Thirsty Thursday!! All you have to do is write a quick post about a beet, wine, or cocktail that you like!!
Alpha Delta Pi was founded in 1851 at Wesleyan College in Macon, GA. It was the first sorority. BOOM!
I was a late joiner. When I was 19 my father passed away. Despite me trying to stay, my mom forced me to head back to college for my junior year just three weeks later. I lived with one of my best friends at college and we had our own apartment that year. As soon as I got there I knew it was going to be a hard year without my family. Friends can do a lot but sometimes you just need the support of someone you can hug and cry on.
A few weeks into that semester my friend started encouraging me to join her sorority. I had attended a party with them the year before but was never really interested in being in a sorority. One night I finally gave in to her because I knew I needed more people in my life to help support me. I went to another party to meet some more of the girls. Although they were lots of fun I just wasn't up for the process of recruitment week.
My friend was quite disappointed but respected my decision. After all I had just lost my dad.
Little did I know magic was working it's way into my life. It must have been written into my future because someone knew I needed more people in my life. On Bid Day, I was offered an open bid to be an Alpha Delta Pi.
Sorority life was completely different than what I expected. I had a blast!! I loved getting to know my sisters and meeting new people. It was exactly what I needed in order to get myself back on track.
Although I have to admit I'm not that close with a lot of my sisters, it's mostly my fault. I feel if I had joined earlier and had more time with them things would be a lot different. I still keep in touch with many of them and we are all comment and like each other's images on Facebook and what not.
I would love to hear from you if you are ADPi. I get excited to find out people I know have something else in common with me. At my graduation, when I wore the ADPi cords, my aunt heard for the first time that I had joined a sorority. Little did I know, that she was an ADPi, too.
"Boom Boom, I wanna go ADPi. Boom Boom, and baby that ain't no lie. Boom Boom, I wanna go ADPi don't you?!?!"
P.S. Sorry for the horrible pics. I graduated college like 8 years ago. So....that was back when I didn't have any sense of fashion. Oh wait...I still don't. haha.
