A Magical Week
This week has been hectic. Like tearing-my-hair-out, why-won't this-stop kind of hectic. But I've been having such a blast that even though my nails have been chewed down to the quick and my sleep schedule has flown out the window, I'm barely noticing a thing. Barely.
Elections for my sorority are coming up, and since I'm running for an executive position, I spent the week scoping out the territory and getting an idea for what that position would be like. I attended the joint meeting of the Inter Fraternity and Panhellenic councils, where everything from increasing membership to the new layout for the Kelvin Smith Library was discussed. I also attended an Exec meeting for my chapter, to see what goes on and what each member's responsibility is. It's now Sunday, a couple hours before chapter and elections start, and I'm frantically trying to pull together a speech that doesn't sound like word vomit and actually makes me sound competent. Wish me luck.
Thursday night I went with some friends (and what seems like 2/3 of Case students) to see the midnight release of the seventh Harry Potter movie. Even though it was crazy and packed, the atmosphere was awesome. The crowd cheered, laughed, and gasped at all the right moments, and the people who came in costume definitely brightened my night. Also, the movie was amazing. I definitely recommend it.
Friday was the culmination of a semester's worth of work, as my sorority put on our philanthropy event, Mr CWRU. We had a great time; the turnout was great (standing room only by the end!), the contestants were all perfect gentlemen, and we raised somewhere around $3,000 for the East Cleveland Neighborhood Center. Since all the alumnae were in town for Mr CWRU, we had a multicultural active-alumnae mixer last night, which was two hours worth of delicious food, music, and old friends. In other words, I got no work done.
Tonight is elections, tomorrow I have a paper and exam, and Tuesday I leave Cleveland for a sunny Thanksgiving in Florida. Although it seems right now like the stress will never end, I'm dreaming of Wednesday and the calm before the storm that will be Finals.
Oh well. I'm loving every minute of it.
