Today was great. Although it was very long, it was a really good day.
The executive board members had to be at school at ten so we could go over all of the stuff that we had to cover at meeting. And then we went straight into practice. There are so many lines for initiation that it is almost impossible to be able to remember all of them. It looks really good, however, when you dont have to have a sheet of paper in front of you when you are doing it.
After the practice, I had to go in and explain to the new girls what was going to be happening during the ceremony. They were all so excited; nervous, but really excited. They were all so cute sitting in my room waiting to go into the ceremony.
After everybody was really excited to get started. We called all of the new girls out of my room and we did a candle pass. It wasnt just a normal candle pass though. What we did, was we all stood in a circle and we all said one word that explained what Delta Zeta meant to us. It was great to hear all of the girls say what Delta Zeta meant to them.
When we were done with the candle pass, I took the girls back into the room and then we did the first round of initiation. It went really well. Then we did the second round. After the two rounds, it was time for the Big sisters to give the Little sisters their badges. It was great to see all of the girls finally come together.
After initiation we had our meeting, which took forever because we had to vote on our bi-laws. That went pretty fast. Then we listened to some speaker that was at Dallas with Kelly. It was really interesting because it was about a guy who had everything he could have ever wanted yet he found himself sitting in his bathroom contemplating suicide. Although it was sad, it was good to know that there are people out there that have some of the same problems that other normal people do.
After the meeting, a bunch of us went out to dinner. It was so much fun. We all had a really good time, and I can not wait to see what comes out of our class caucuses.
