Senior Pictures

I don’t know about you, but Senior Pictures in high school were a HUGE deal.
And we got to do whatever we wanted
[I believe I wore a matching American Eagle set of scarf, hat and mittens]
We didn’t do that whole black velvet top thing
[although, I did that in college, for my sorority]
So, when Senior year of college was ending, I called on my sorority sister, Izzy to help me out.
Girl is talented! Check out her Facebook!
So, here are a couple of my favorites!
Had to throw up the “O”
Love this!
And of course, I had to represent the sorority!
Dress is J.Crew (similar)

The Final Countdown

Spring Term was my FAVORITE term out of any term in college. 
My senior sisters and I bonded like crazy, which was amazing. 
We celebrated my Mom’s birthday at a winery the weekend before I went back up to school
Caroline and I matched… on a regular basis
We had a date dash!

Jamie and I dressed as the end of prohibition
We cheered on our sisters at a philanthropy!
We helped at the March for Babies
 Alum Weekend came… 
 my Big came back!
PC 40 seniors and alum
We had a hometown mixer… Southern Oregon girls
Our chapter travelled to Corvallis to support our sisters at Oregon State

Mama came to visit for Mom’s weekend

I saw His Holiness the Dalai Lama…
…and Macklemore
Spring House Dance happened
And then SAW and Graduation, which you saw yesterday. 

SAW and Graduation

I’m doing this a tad out of order, but that’s ok. 
Tomorrow you’ll get to see the rest of my senior year,
but today I’m going to be talking about SAW (Senior Appreciation Week) and Graduation.
SAW is a week dedicated to the Seniors of my sorority, as a week to celebrate the last four years. 
We have a senior surprise, activities with the freshman and sophomores and then one with the juniors.
We also do wills, where we give a bunch of stuff away, and then senior ceremony where we read letters to our fellow seniors and the chapter (read: lots of tears).
Our last chapter was 4th of July themed
The pres and I were matching

And onto Graduation
So my major’s graduation was on Sunday, while the main ceremony was on Monday. 
So my family came on Sunday and we went to dinner and all that, while I got to spend time with my friends on Monday. Which was nice!
Officially a graduate!

My family!

Fall Term, I’ve been a horrible blogger

I just finished up my last Fall Term at the UO. It’s so weird to think that I’m a senior, and in 6 months, I will be done with college.

This term was VERY busy. Which is why I never blogged. Ever. I’m horrible, I know. But I’m going to try and start blogging more.

So recap,

1. I was on recruitment staff again, which was fun as we all got along really well!

Revealing our Letters before it’s time! 
2. Bid Day was amazing! It was so wonderful being with my sisters after nearly 10 months!
 All of the KD Rho Gamms [and staff!]
 One of my best friend’s littles and I!

3. I got a new little this year! Which has been great! I love my little wittle!

4. Then there was Greek Week. We won the previous 2 years, but came in second this year.
The theme this year was We Run This Town. We were Los Angeles
 Sitting on the Trailer for the parade so it wouldn’t fall over before it was attached to the truck
 Hollywood Sign
Why not…

And then the dance…
We danced to songs like Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Mercy by Kanye and Beverly Hills by Weezer. 
SO FUN!
Little, Twin and I. [Little and I were in the dance]
5. Animal House Bid Day Function. 
We had a 4 way Bid Day Function, which was so much fun! The UO loves Animal House themed events as the movie was filmed on our campus!
 Leah and I!
Little and I [she wasn’t my little yet though]
6. FOOTBALL. 
The Oregon Ducks football team is great, and the last four years we’ve been ranked which has been amazing. I only got tickets to the non-conference games before school started, but I loved going to the bars and watching the games with my friends. Make sure to watch the Fiesta Bowl on January 3rd as the Ducks take on Kansas State!

7. Initiation
Little got initiated. And we became more similar…
 Like Big Like Little
 Twin and Little!
 We apparently can’t keep our eye open…
Seniors! 
Well, since this is the longest post ever, I’m going to stop now. That’s mostly it for this term. Obviously, I was a little busy, considering a term is only 10 weeks. I’m going to be a better blogger, and actually blog. Imagine that.
