Weekends are supposed to be a time to relax right…? HA, WRONG! In my crazy life, weekends are just extensions of the week except I don’t have class. This weekend was no different. I went home Thursday after classes, yes a two hour drive after six hours of class, to help my mom get ready for her wedding. Friday was spent running around like a crazy person to get all of the last minute details finished before the wedding on Saturday. Saturday was wedding day and trust me, it started bright and early. Our hair appointment was at 8 a.m. and we didn’t stop until we got in bed at 11 p.m. It was a long day, but it was a good day as well.. This morning was no different, woke up at 6 a.m. to drive to Monroe to spend my fall break with my boyfriend. Luckily, it is fall break and I intend to use it as such, A BREAK. Everyone remember to take a breathe and just remember that it’s a good life even if it’s a crazy one. We are blessed to live this crazy life!
Having support makes all the difference in my life. I feel like everyone has a different support system in their lives and that’s great! In my mind, whatever works for you does just that, it works. I was always the person to try and go at everything alone, only recently have I learned to trust people, delegate and rely on people for things. It really has completely changed my life. My biggest support system is my boyfriend. I don’t really know how I was surviving my crazy life before I met him. He listens to me rant, rave and cry on a daily basis and he’s always there to listen. I don’t know how he does it, but I’m so thankful that he does. Whether your support system is your family, boyfriend/girlfriend, a professor or a good friend it doesn’t really matter. All that matter is that someone is there to pick you up when you feel like life is falling apart.
Okay, so college students everywhere should know what I’m taking about. It’s that week when all of your professors just so happen to put tests on the same week. Next thing you know you have a test Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. You’re just sitting there wondering when will you sleep…? How will you eat…? I promise you will survive. Sleep is for the weak…just kidding, please sleep. Try your best to set aside normal meal times, take breaks and sleep. I’ve been through a few weeks like this and I’m currently about to tackle another one. Good luck everyone, may the curve be ever in your favor! See you on the other side!
Well, it’s that time of the year again! It’s Homecoming time at college campuses across the country. For “normal students,” Homecoming is a week of events you may or may not go, topped off with a big tailgate and football game. For students like me, it’s a week of trying not to pull your hair out, running on two hours of sleep, and somehow trying to figure out how to balance school and running five events in four days. Oh, not to mention working all day on Saturday for the game. Trust me, I’m not complaining. I love my life and I wouldn’t have my college experience any other way. My school is my entire life and the pride I have for my University is what keeps me going. Just remember that there are people like me out there who are trying their absolute best to ensure that everyone else has a fantastic Homecoming Week! Take the time to go to the events your campus offers, tell the person in charge they’re doing a good job and try to not be so critical. It’s a hard job, but somebody has to do it!
