  1. OMG, NEW MEMBERS! I don’t know who they are yet, but I’m so pumped for bid day!
  2. Is wearing a tulle bow in my hair too extreme? No, no it’s not.
  3. Is there such a thing as too much glitter? Again, no, no there’s not.
  4. Am I crazy for writing my letters on my arm in metallic colors? See the answers to 2 and 3.
  5. I can’t wait to get my Bid Day Buddy! I hope they like laser tag, we’re totally going to dominate against the other new members.
  6. I hope my rush crush made it! Even if she didn’t, I still technically have 3 more.
  7. Food! Please tell me that Bid Day includes cupcakes, I’ve been living off of sandwiches and salad for two weeks now.
  8. Waiting for new members to run through Greek Town is like waiting for the ball to drop on New Years Eve.
  9. Seriously, where are they? The heat/anticipation are killing me!
  10. There they are! Omg, I’m going to pass out. Where’s my girl?!?
  11. Found her! She’s perfect. I can’t believe we’re going to be sisters soon!
  12. Okay, time to get into the air conditioning, now.
  13. Seriously, why is Bid Day 110 degrees?
  14. She looks excited, just wait until she sees the house!
  15. She loves it! she’s so excited to get her first shirt with her new letters on it.
  16. Time to take a thousand photos!
  17. I need to teach her the hand symbol.
  18. Repeat step 16. There’s no such thing as too many photos. Especially on Bid Day!
  19. Yay, Bid Day activities! Wow, my Bid Day buddy really IS good at laser tag!
  20. It’s over? But it just started…
  21. Time to go home. It’s going to take me weeks to wash off this glitter! Oh well, it was totally worth it.
