While Fall is by far my favorite time of the year, it also happens to be one the busiest times! I am fortunate enough to be highly involved in every organization that I am passionate about, but this means that sometimes I get overwhelmed.

First, some advice for college is getting used to using a planner.  I have to have my planner with me at all times; if I don’t then I have no idea what needs to be done for that day and what commitments I have.  So BUY A PLANNER NOW so you get used to keeping up with one.

Now, like I said I love this time of year, but I am now experiencing the feeling of the end of the semester.  When you come to college you will understand this feeling, trust me.  This feeling makes me want to shut down and not do anything but watch the Harry Potter marathon on ABC Family, but I can’t do that.  Today, there is a football game, but I am skipping the last football game to catch up on life 🙁 . This past Friday I got to attend some very cool workshops facilitated by JC Penny Leadership Program–this is a program through Price College of Business.  Basically, it acts as the liaison between classes and the corporate world. At any rate, I got to go to a workshop on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Franklin Covey, a Wall Street 101 presentation, and a Time Warner Media Presentation.  While these did take up my entire day, they were interesting and helped me to grow as a leader.  So my Friday was a workshop day; therefore, I get to spend my Saturday working on homework, Boomer Blogs, and preparing for some big interviews on Sunday.

Sunday is going to be a big day for me–I have an interview for Campus Activities Council Homecoming Chair and Center for Creation of Economic Wealth or CCEW.  I know that if I get both, one, or none, it is meant to be, but I can’t help but worry about how it will all turn out.  Also, Sunday is Gamma Phi Beta’s Founders Day, so we will have alumni coming to the house to help us celebrate.  And Finally, Sunday is a big day for Gamma Phi elections!

Next week is also going to be crazy!! I have two tests in the same class, it is Initiation Week for all the baby G Phis, the Harry Potter Premiere, a Date Party, and the Brad Paisley Concert!  Let’s just say I have to get everything done this weekend, because this upcoming week is going to go quite fast.

So needless to say, I would die without my planner.
