no it wasnt directed at you -- i didnt have a strong core group of girlfriends from high school or that i grew up with because we moved when my parents got divorced. it was always hard for me in high school to make lasting friendships with very many girls because my high school was really clique-y. i have a couple friends from high school i keep in touch with, but i wouldnt say that i could depend on any of them (well maybe just one) if i really needed something. i always thought sororities were stupid and nothing id ever belong to. but i was pleasantly surprised that there was actually a sorority full of girls just like me.
and like glenda, i got really into loving everything about it. rush was one of my favorite times of year. i never thought i would be a part of a sorority, ever. i always talked shit about sorority girls and how they were so fake (and dont get me wrong, some definitely are). but what i didnt know was that not all sororities are like the ones you see on tv. i had a number of friends in college who were "independents" (as they called themselves because they didnt go greek, and my campus was heavily greek). but the friends i made in my sorority are the ones who have ended up being my closest, lifelong friends. thats all i meant by that.
