Long time no post

Sorry I haven’t been posting. I’ve been developing an apathy toward Tumblr recently, and I don’t know why. Of course I’m busier than I was in the summer, so that’s probably it. It’s break right now, so I have a few free moments. Also, I’m intensely avoiding my problem sets. I feel like I should update some of you I don’t know in real life about my life the past 3 months.
I just finished pledging my second fraternity. This one is professional. Pledging this one was an infinitely better time than last semester; no hazing at all. Pledging this one has been such a nice experience, and I’ve gotten just as close, if not closer, to my pledge brothers for this one, that it makes me wonder whether being hazed was absolutely necessary last semester. According to the older brothers it was to “bring us closer.” How did it do that? I got just as close to my pledge brothers this time around through sleepovers and games than I did last time, while we were all undergoing physical and psychological strain. This has made me a lot softer as a person with being on the other side of pledging. I haven’t hazed any of our new pledges so far, and I have absolutely no intention of doing so. It just doesn’t seem right, and I don’t feel right doing it.
I’ve been feeling a lot happier. The summer was a bad time for me. I had just started my medication and was working on balancing the adverse psychological effects. Work was mundane and unsatisfying. I missed all the friends I made in the previous school year. Family life was…wishy washy at best. I’m not going to to into detail about any of this, but needless to say I was a lot happier 2 weeks into school. With the exception of today, of course. It happens from time to time, can’t focus on it.
That’s all I feel like saying right now. Thanks for reading - see you all after finals.3 notes
