1 Down, 6 to Go...

02.29.2012Whew! I finished my first week as a pledge! I have to say, it was not easy. Having to interview at least 7 members as well as dressing up on Wednesdays, and remembering to wear your pin every day of the week and turn your binder in every Friday is not easy, especially when you add to it all of the things you have to do for your classes. Exhausting. But, this week, I was able to get ahead a little bit by getting 8 interviews. Even though it’s only one extra I’m sure I will be glad that I did it. Even though it is sometimes difficult to book interviews and find time to do everything, I am really enjoying the process. I like interviewing the members because I get to know a little bit more about them as well as how great EDU is. So far, every member has told me that pledging tends to get a little overwhelming, but that it is completely worth it in the end and sometimes they wish they could go back to pledging all over again. So, as stressful as it may sometimes be, I am going to try my best to enjoy the next 6 weeks of this process, be myself, and meet the people that I will soon be calling my brothers!
