Go Greek or No Greek

Here’s a fact about me that may be surprising: In college, I was in a sorority . Most people who know me now, as an adult, are quite shocked to find that out. I am decidedly “unsorority girl-like” (whatever that means). When I decided to rush, it was not a decision I took lightly.

Money quotes, movie quotes

I’m not feeling so hot today. I think it’s the fact that it’s been raining for 3 straight days. Something I like to do when I’m not feeling well and I’m stuck in the house is watch movies. I love movies. I love to quote movies. In fact, I suffer from what some call Movie Tourette’s. I will randomly spout movie lines, and I can usually find one for every situation (I find this […] Continue Reading…
