DeMay 007: Happy 109th Birthday Chi Omega 😀
VTJerseyGirl03: you are a nerd 😛
DeMay 007: yes i am

Chi Omega was founded on this day in 1895 at the University of Arkansas by Jean Vincenheller, Ina Mae Bowles, Jobelle Holcombe, Alice Simonds, and Dr. Charles Richardson.  Over that past 109 years, Chi Omega has grown into the largest women’s fraternal organization in the world with over 170 collegiate chapters and over 240,000 initiated sisters.

Chi Omega Symphony

To live constantly above snobbery of word or deed; to put scholarship before social obligations and character before appearances; to be, in the best sense, democratic rather than ‘exclusive,’ and lovable rather than ‘popular;’ to work earnestly, to speak kindly, to act sincerely, to choose thoughtfully that course which occasion and conscience demand; to be womanly always; to be discouraged never; in a word, to be loyal under any and all circumstances to my Fraternity and her highest teachings and to have her welfare ever at heart that she may be a symphony of high purpose and helpfulness in which there is no discordant note.  ~ Ethel Switzer Howard, Xi.  1909

There’s a game called GROW.  (Don’t mind all the Japanese stuff – just click cancel and close the box at the top of the screen.) There are no directions and you have to figure out the rules on your own.  Can you score 20,000 points?  Good luck!

(Thanks to Chris DeMay for providing me with some entertainment for the evening.)

What is my problem?

Not only have I been somewhat of a slacker over the past few months, I have also found myself wanting to do the craziest things I never would have wanted to do before. For example: be able to run several miles, live in all kinds of places I’ve never been, ride the free-fall on top of the Stratosphere Tower, fly an airplane, go parasailing, go scuba diving, spend six months living on a boat, go on a helicopter ride over either the Grand Canyon or a volcano in Hawaii, sing in front of people. I’ve even contemplated whether or not it would really be that bad of an idea to go on that ride at amusement parks where they strap you and a friend together with a rope and release you from the top and let you swing back and forth for awhile. And then, today, I was wondering if perhaps I should try skydiving at some point before I die.

I think this must have all started last February when I decided I liked tomatoes. I mean, who decides they like tomatoes after hating them for 21 years?
