Coming home for spring break is exactly what I needed this year. The first two and half months of this semester have been a huge learning experience for me. I have had to figure out how to time manage more than I ever had to before and I haven't been doing that good of a job. It's really hard to live in a sorority house because there is always something else you would rather be doing. There is always someone around willing to procastinate with you. My living situation has been both good and bad for me because it has forced me to be more outgoing and get to know the people that I live with but it has also made me think that being social is the only important aspect of life and it is having negative effects on my performance in school.
I am also taking some of the hardest classes that I have ever been in this semester. No one can really talk until they actually start to get into their major classes. Learning what you are actually going to be practicing in the real world is a whole nother ball game than just memorizing facts for a required lower level class. I don't want to be the Accounting major without a life though. I refuse to only focus on my studies because in the end that is not going to make me a better person. I need to learn how to interact with people as well as how to give back to my community because both of those things can only add to my career later in life. I want to succeed but I also want to make sure that I enjoy the ride.
I needed to come home for Spring Break to rejuvenate my life. I need to get caught up on school work so that I can go back feeling confident about the rest of the semester. I also just need to rest and reconnect with people I haven't talked to in a while. Taking a break is what everyone needs once in a while.
Today was my first day of spring break and it was a day of perfect balance. I got to catch up on sleep, catch up on some of my tv shows and started the process of catching up on school work. I am so looking forward to this week! I know that might make me a nerd but I don't care. Taking care of yourself is the most important aspect of your life and this week of balance is just what the doctor ordered!
The name of the game is taking care of yourself, because you're going to live long enough to wish you had.” - Grace Mirabella
