It's another Launch Week on the Buzz Girls' Blog -- this time out we're celebrating Marley's Puffin debut writing as Kate Harmon. (See below for a great story on how Marley found writing!)
The launch of Marley's sorority sisters series got the Bees talking about sororities and campus groups in general, so this week we'll answer the question:
Which HS or college group were you in?
This one is a toughie for me, because I was one of those rare hybrids... I wanted so badly to get a scholarship that I did many different activities to make myself "well-rounded." This put me in all kinds of social circles, including, but not limited to:
Art Peeps (actually got an art scholarship for partial college tuition)
Drama Kids (big part Syme, the dictionary writer, in Orwell's 1984)
Swimming & Diving Team (jr. year -- and I lettered in diving!)
Student Government (sr. class senator)
Knowledge Bowl (token hot girl/Shakespeare expert on team of boy chess club members.)
Honor Society (was VP, which worked to advantage when my chemistry grade nearly put my gpa in jeopardy... the chem teacher was our adviser!)
And I think there were more things, but you'd have to dig out my yearbook... which my sister does when she has dinner parties so everyone can see my awesome HS hair. Anyway, I did a ton of stuff, which meant I knew a lot of different types of people.
When I went away to college, I majored in film, so I spent a lot of time in the Comm building editing documetaries and crying over cruel, tortured artist boys. Also, I worked off campus three years out of four to pay expenses at school. My college didn't have the Greek system or football or anything -- but we did have an Ultimate Frisbee team. :)
Anyway, I can't wait to hear about everyone else and where they fit in to the HS and college picture. Do any of you have a favorite memory from your sorority?
