Creative Roadblock

I think the worst thing about being an English student is that there are those days where creativity will not flow for love, money, blood, sweat, or tears. I sit at my desk knowing the story my characters want to tell, but it’s so difficult to get the right words, it’s so difficult to get the right feelings and it’s just a challenge.

Roadblocks are meant to make us see what’s beyond our limitations. It’s a test for the writer in us all, to push our characters beyond their thoughts and make them come alive. I find that when I talk about my characters like they’re real people I get new inspirations and ideas because they mean something to me.

 

Anyway, I just had a random musing about writing and wanted to get it out of my brain.

GrΣΣΣk WΣΣΣk Pride

It’s the final few days of Greek Week, aka the most hectic time of the year for sororities and fraternities at Drexel. Our theme this year for the encompassing whole was Nickelodeon.

Being the newest sorority on campus, we’ve been viewed as a lesser threat. It’s been both an advantage and a handicap because we’ve been able to slip through relatively unnoticed before we get attacked head on. So to say the least, it’s been an interesting past two weeks.

Last night at the Talent Show, our very own Sigma Sigma Sigma’s got second place, beating out, Phi Mu, Phi Sigma Sigma, Delta Phi Epsilon and Alpha Sigma Alpha, coming in behind Delta Zeta. Our team had worked long and hard to be as successful as we were and I am SO proud of all my beautiful sisters.

At the Chariot Races today, we came in 4th place with a few bumps in the road. We rocked it!! Three events left!!!

Back; Guns Blazing!

Sorry for the extended absence once again.

Life got the best of me and became quite hectic. Now that our chapter, Alpha Delta of Sigma Sigma Sigma is installed, life has gotten a little quieter, and then Greek Week was upon us like a raging bull.

As of now, the Tri Sigma powderpuff team has beated Delta Zeta Monday and we’re taking on Phi Mu tonight! Let’s go Sigma!

Being a part of the sorority has been the greatest decision I’ve ever made and it’s been a blessing for me in so many ways. It sounds SOOOO cheesy, but I’ve made bonds with these girls in such a short amount of time, and we’ve pulled together in so many ways we’re really a bonded group even if we are 100+. It’s hard to know everyone but everyone has always been so friendly and welcoming.

Sigma is a national sorority, but it’s not international (I don’t think any are) but there are tons of reasons now for me to hop on a bus and go wherever my sorority sisters reside. I am now going to be here as often as I can, hopefully once a week (at a minimum) to keep my life in check!
