The above is a song by DJ $crilla about my sorority. For anyone in the know, he mentions a lot of inside information. Definitely made me smile.
Yes, I am a Pi Phi.
And the reason I'm posting this is because I'm going to MIT tonight to do a Pi Phi thing. I haven't done anything sorority-wise in a few years, except read the quarterly magazine. Dunno if I'll get really active again as I have a life and a husband and hopefully a job soon, but I remember this as always being fun and man, it's been a while.
And -- I'm wearing a grey skirt (with a lavender sweater set -- total sorority chic). While that's unremarkable in itself, this is the skirt that was too tight in the hips a few weeks. No longer, baby!
I'll eat dinner right before I go, and will save a few calories for a yogurt when I get home. There are always hors d'ouevres at these things, and possibly also cookies, so I'll just drink water, think happy thoughts and mingle like I'm supposed to. Gonna wear my pin and everything.
It's good to be doing something different, something that's not about getting a job (although I may have some news in that area, more tomorrow) or my family member's health (test results won't come in until Monday, we think) or even about dieting and exercise. Just different.
In the meantime -- for any fellow Pi Phis who may stumble upon this post -- I even remember the words to a lot of the old songs, so ocean to ocean, ring ching, and room-de-ah-dah to you. And a special secret handshake, too .... ;)
