Chambers, Cartwright, and Cappie – the three C words that has always been in my head for the past days and of course the 5-letter word that binds them all – GRΣΣK. I’m talking about a not so new comedy-drama TV Series [but recently introduced to me by a friend] which aired from July 2007 to March 2011 [according to Wiki]. The show’s comprised of 4 seasons.
Watching TV series is one of the things that I do with my free time, The Vampire Diaries and Gossip Girl are some of my favorites. However, it’s GRΣΣK that tops the favorite list. For the reason that it’s something that I feel that I belong, the one that I can relate to the most [I am not surrounded by vampires, werewolves and witches like Elena; not even the smallest piece of Gucci, Prada, or Louis Vuitton touches my skin unlike Blair and Serena who are very used to it]. Yes, I am a member of a sorority and I also belong to a varsitarian organization in my university and this is one factor that GRΣΣK has caught every inch of me.
My favorite GRΣΣK character is Cappie. The permanent KT [Kappa Tau] president, the one who’s totally in love with Casey [a Zeta Beta Zeta Sorority member], big brother to Rusty [a geek who wants have a remarkable college life], the one who accidentally graduates, the happy-go-lucky guy, the one who loves beers and girls, the one with an unusual perception of life, the one whom I see myself.

As I watch every episode of this show I fell in love with it more and more. Every episode triggers a memory of my experiences in college. Every character [major or minor] reminds of someone I encounter in college. There were episodes that made me cry [especially the finale], most made me laugh, and some made me say, “Exactly, I couldn’t agree more!”
GRΣΣK is something worth spending your time with. Kudos to the makers of this lovely show! To Cappie, Rusty, Casey, Evan, Ashleigh, Calvin, Rebecca, Dale, and everyone else I will surely miss seeing you on Greek row. As they say, even good things must come to an end [But I’m still wishing it did not].
