all... I just came to catch up before I leave to go home!
Contrary to whatever Sue may have observed (
) I too am of the shy variety
I think I originally opened up on the Internet because I didn't have be afraid of meeting anyone..... and then I started meeting people....
so... yeah. Hahaha. When I meet people I blurt out the most random things that I really shouldn't. My freshman year I was thinking of rushing a sororiety so I went to an informal tea type thing one of the girls invited me to, before rush starts so people who are semi interested can get an idea. Well, since I knew a girl in the house, everyone was gathering around me and somehow it came up in conversation that I had a crush on Prince Harry. It's totally like, NOT the thing you tell complete strangers. "Hi, I'm Jess, and Prince Harry is hot."
But apparently they all thought I was cute or something instead... so that time it worked out because I was so horribly nervous in a social situation that somehow it worked in my favor. Generally however, my social anxiety does NOT work in my favor and I never talk to anyone
I didn't end up rushing the sororiety though... the whole rush thing was not really my scene. I mainly went along as company for the girl I was with who did want to rush. That's an interesting story. The sororiety I happened to fit in with is the one known on campus as like "The fat girl and reject" sororiety, and as we were leaving my friend was like "Wow Jess! You really fit in there!" and she didn't MEAN to say it meanly, but I was like "Um, gosh, thanks." And she was like "Oh, I would NEVER be in that sororiety, I'd rather be in none at all." So she rushed thinking she would get into Tri-Delt since her mom was a legacy at Syracuse even... and well she didn't make it into Tri-Delt's last round so she dropped out of rush altogether. Well, she rushed again the following year... and where did she end up? The sororiety of "losers" she said she would NEVER be in.
That said, all the girls I knew in there were perfectly nice girls aka not sluts, which is why their reputation is as it is, I suppose.
