Hey, Welcome back! So this time of year is really busy for me because I’m a student at BGSU Firelands http://www.bgsu.edu/, and that means it’s finals time. On top of taking college classes, being a blogger for EHOVE as well as an ambassador, I also work three jobs, help out with my younger siblings, and volunteer at my church.
I am a really busy person and I have a lot going on and a lot of times everybody asks the same question…How do you do it all? Well my first answer is I’m young. I have the ability to run around with little sleep. (Thank Goodness! :]) My next method of staying organized is a combination between my agenda (that EHOVE provides all of it’s students with) and my phone. I would be lost without my phone calender and agenda!
Sometimes it’s hard and I have to make choices because somethings overlap others, and then I have to start prioritizing. Usually it goes college classes/EHOVE classes, ambassador/blogger, BPA (my Student Organization I belong to), Church, and Work. But I often times add in the question of “How often does this opportunity come around,” because sometimes there are high school activities that only come around once.
My friends are really good about keeping me up on what events are coming up and my best friend Jessica is really good about reminding me about assignments that are due. At first it was really hard to keep everything in order and even every now and then I mix things up, but once you get in the rhythm of being so busy you not only learn to appreciate your free time more, but you do more valuable things with it and feel more prepared for your future. Now that I have been able to balance more than three things at a time I feel a lot better about what I will face when I officially enter college and eventually the work force.
