My first month of school has been a little hectic to say the least. I am trying to juggle a part-time job, 17 credit hours, being VP of a club, community service, and my HHS ambassador responsibilities. It’s been a little crazy but, because of it I have learned to be a better manager of my time. I try to find a use for all the time that used to be wasted before( time in between classes, walking to and from class, etc.) I try to use my time as wisely as possible so that I also have some down time and time for a social life.
This is also my first semester living in an apartment. I love it! I love being able to cook my own meals and try out new recipes. I also like the girls that I am living with; we get along really well together. Overall I would say that September has been a transition month for me; trying to get used to this new semester and all the changes it has brought.
