Homecoming come to an end

I am finally recovering from a week of almost no sleep. Freshman year, I stayed up until 2 A.M on a regular night and all-nighters required nothing more than a soda or coffee. Senior year, now, I am usually in bed by midnight on week nights and all nighters are painful and leave me exhausted for more than a day. Have I really aged so much in three years and a few months? Surely not. A least I didn’t gain the freshman 15 all freshman year, I spread it out over the whole college experience…and maybe I haven’t hit 15 yet….if I am happy with the way I look, then why count punds? After all, I was able to fit into my prom dress for the homecoming nominee activities. So the morning of the parade, I had donuts in my dress.

Catherine Cook, our Pi Phi president is homecoming queen, and she is a sweet, smart girl, so congratulations to her. I wasn’t chosen for court either, but in the end I am perfectly happy where I am. How fun to even be a part of the homecoming festivities? It really was fun.

It was cold early in the morning and I didn't want to stand in heels all day...so ugg boots. They were hidden under my dress during the parade.

My favorite part was waving to the little girls in the parade. Their little faces lit up when I waved to them, as if I was someone really special. I was just a girl in a dress, but I was told by friends standing near that one little girl looked up at her mom and asked if I was a princess. And her mother said, “yes, that’s what a princess looks like.” I would have never imagined little girls and mom’s saying that about me. If you had have told me freshman year that I would be standing on that float in that dress, a sweet heart of a fraternity, I would have laughed. Oh, the surprizes life brings.

Our homecoming float lost judges award to ATO and ZTA (who really did an amazing job…congratulations Art) and class A award to KOT (who had an elephant that shot water out it’s trunk…pretty cool), but I am still so proud of the float the other float chairs and I built. My goal was to create a float to entertain at the parade, make alumni proud, and aww the kids on Baylor’s 100th homecoming anniversary.

I was just a nominee, lost float, and we lost the game…but you know, what an amazing weekend to be involved, and what an amazing school with awesome tradtions.

I also went to the Sigma Chi alumni dinner (the only girl my age there), where I met a few Sigma Chi alumni, and a Tri Delta alumna. It was really cool to figure out who we knew in common and hear their old college stories. I wonder if someday I’ll be telling undergraduates about my days at Baylor. The day’s have been pretty good…not many left now.
