Hi I'm Tim, and you might know by now that I'm from Fraternity Life. Stick with me and you are all in for a little something special. I assure you; we will entertain and amuse you. Don't take this to heart, I'm only joking...well most of the time anyway. It's all in good fun so don't hunt me down and kill me.
As you read online, I'm from Buffalo and have lived here my whole life. When I moved into the pledge house it was the first time I moved out of my parents’ basement, where I now live once again. I know, I'm 21 and should probably be like the other kids, but my mom still cooks, does my laundry, and gets me off to school. Yeah right, they want my sorry ass outta here. But for now they’re stuck with me. The other day my mom found my liquor stash and poured it down the sink. Don't worry, I made her reimburse me.
I don't have a job, besides testing out video games for Sony--that’s what I tell my mom and dad. My brothers have caught on, though. I tell them I am a reverse roll model, someone you shouldn't strive to be. They get really mad when I walk around in my boxers and yell various things when their friends are over.
I know now you are probably asking, “Did this kid wear a helmet and ride the small yellow bus to school while drooling, or did he eat paint chips as a child or butter, or even fish food or dog biscuits?” The answer is mostly no, but some yes, if that makes any sense. I did have to stop playing hockey because I got knocked out too many times. That might explain some of it. Now that I've lost most of you, I will let you in on the stuff you don't see on TV and a bit of my life and the lives of my pledge brothers. Oh, and who could forget those other girls...
Guys, note to selves: take this show as just a peak into Greek life. This is only the tip of the iceberg. Every fraternity does things differently and has different views as do people. Keep this in mind as you watch the show, and jump to various conclusions. There are lots of stereotypes out there, I know, weÕve all heard them. DonÕt judge a book by its cover. Everybody makes mistakes, and hopefully uses these mistakes as a stepping stone and tools to learn. Maybe Greek life is for you and maybe it isnÕt. There are plenty of fraternities and sororities with all sorts of interests and backgrounds, maybe you just need to explore a little bit. Or maybe it just ainÕt your cup of tea. ThatÕs my two cents for today.
