Ok, so I know its been FOREVER since I've wrote on here, but my life has definitely been more hectic that I thought it would be. Obviously all the traveling and crazy hours was expected, but I soon found out that any downtime I have is used to RELAX; no computer, TV, sometimes the phone to catch up with friends and family, but other than that mostly silence and my bed.
After all this time I'm sure everyone thinks I've been traveling the country, but really I haven't left the state of Georgia! I did have training for two weeks in Indianapolis and that was AMAZING. I formed some amazing friendships with the other TLCs, got to see Pat, met some amazing ZTA leaders including past National Presidents! It really was everything I thought it would be and more.
My first visit was Eta Iota at Valdosta State University in Valdosta, GA. The campus was beautiful! It had a beachy feel and lots of palm trees. I was there for about two weeks so I really got to know the girls well. They were great and I got to help them with a successful recruitment! Here are the sisters and new members on Bid Day:
Even though I wasn't there for my birthday, the girls were so great and took me out to an early dinner then gave me a birthday present!
It made me feel better since this was my first birthday away from friends and family. I was definitely homesick that week.. but it's been getting better since then. I'm really enjoying my time traveling and seeing all these places and meeting people I would never get to meet if I didn't have this job! I'm going to try and update this more often... not making any promises though!
