Okay, yes my Ducks are #1 in the country at the moment, yes, they whooped up on the Washington Huskies today, and yes, I'm proud as punch, but that's only half of the point.
I had such a wonderful college experience. I went away to school, but only 1 1/2 hours away. I joined a sorority (Delta Delta Delta) and stereotypes and Saturday Night Live jokes aside, I got to be sisters with a wonderful group of girls who have turned out to be amazing, strong, successful women (thanks for the reconnection, Facebook). Most are wives and mothers, some are also executives, some have lived all over the world, some have their own businesses, some give generously of their time and money for charities and volunteering ...like I said they're all amazing.
When I watched the game on tv today I remembered walking across campus for the game (rain or shine), I remembered laughing a lot, I remembered hoping to see that cute guy (whoever it was) in the library or student union, I remembered studying hard but having a great time. Siiigh. Good times. Here's a few pics of the glory days, stolen from my sorority sisters' posts on Facebook.
