Transferring from a school of 6,000 to one of 23,000 students. Moving into a house full of 70 w0men I’ve never met. Moving from Orange, CA where the coldest temperature was 60 degrees to Pullman, WA where the coldest temperature can be -30 degrees. Joining a sorority of 150 women I’ve never met. Taking classes with 500 other students when the biggest class I’ve ever taken was 85 people.
Yeah, you could say I’m a little bit scared but at least I have good reason!
Today marks the beginning of an incredibly exciting and terrifying new chapter in my life. After spending two years at a small, private university, I have made the decision to transfer to a large, public in-state university. While I am 100% confident that I made the right choice in transferring, it does not mean I’m not scared to death.
Luckily, I am not just jumping into a sea of 23,000 other students and being left to drown. I am extremely blessed that I can very easily re-affiliate with the chapter of my sorority at my new school. It’s a really easy process to transfer – you just have to fill out some simple paperwork! Since I will immediately dive into that community, I will have 150 new friends right off the bat. I am also moving into the sorority house there (my old university did not have Greek housing at all so the concept of even having a sorority house is new to me!). There are roughly 70 women who live in the “Theta Mansion” at my new university and thankfully, I have already met about 20 of them! I also had the privilege of meeting my day room roommate who is the definition of perfection.
I don’t want to bore you all too much with my whole life story, but I wanted to let you all know that I will be very busy as I adjust to this immense change in my life. I will have at least one blog post up a week but I will try to do more. Blogging is still one of my many passions and it is how I de-stress and unwind. If I had all the time in the world, I would be cranking out at least one post a day. Unfortunately, that just won’t be possible for the next month or so.
If you are interested in guest posting on my blog, that would be absolutely amazing!
I would promote your post through my social media and your post would be seen by all of my readers – providing great exposure for you. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested! Thank you so much.
To all of my blogging friends and loyal readers: thank you so much for being so supportive. I’m so sorry I won’t be able to give my undivided attention to blogging over the next few weeks. I appreciate your patience and loyalty.
Here’s to new adventures and new friends! Wish me luck!
On a separate note, can we please all just take a moment and appreciate how amazing this hat is? It was given to me by Turnip Seed – a super cute custom embroidery company. They make monogrammed hats, purses, totes, phone cases, everything! If you know my blog, you know I LOVE personalized things especially when it comes to sorority themed items! I love this hat because I can wear it so many different ways – wish a causal outfit like this, dressed up with a button-down and statement necklace, or even working out. It’s such a fun way to represent an organization near and dear to my heart while also looking stylish.
This shirt is from College Hill Custom Threads – a clothing company that specializes in creating custom order merchandise for groups or individuals. This was the shirt they released for all Washington State girls going to Watershed Music Festival (notice the Tim McGraw lyric remix on the back?). I have a feeling I’m going to live in this shirt – it’s so cute and again, I love representing my school while looking cute at the same time!
