Last week I blogged about the things that have changed about me over the last few years, and I had too much to fit into one blog. Imagine that. So here is Part II.
Handling stress/being busy
It’s not that I didn’t know how to handle being busy all the time when I first came to school, but I just didn’t know what being busy really meant quite yet. Each semester I have become more and more busy, and I have slept less and less. But somehow, it got easier with each semester, probably because I learned how to actually apply myself and how to use my time wisely. Each semester I had to work harder in my classes, and I had more things to do for clubs and stuff on campus. Because of this, I was able to slowly get used to the entire process…which was really pretty nice. The best part of all is that this semester, my final semester, I think that I am the least busy of my entire college career. It’s a beautiful thing….but now I don’t know how to handle having free time. It’s strange how things work like that…isn’t it?
Just like everything else, friendships change over the years. I’m still friends with my best friends from freshman year, but during the last few years I have met different people and formed new friendships that I absolutely love. Most of these have been through living with new people in Alpha Phi, people that I either didn’t know before or just didn’t know well. Second semester sophomore year, I lived with Meghan, Liz, and Lauren…and over the course of the semester we became best friends. In the next few months, Meghan and Liz are getting married, and we are all in each of their weddings (so precious..I know). So, we are basically the stereotype sorority girls…since we met in Alpha Phi and now we are going to be in each of their weddings. Last semester, I moved in with Katie, Lauren, and Brooke…and we just fit together. We weren’t sure how it was going to work out, because we are all such different people, but now I couldn’t imagine living with anyone else and I think we only get along so well because we are outrageously different. I’m so glad that I stepped out of my comfort zone to live with people I didn’t know well…because then I wouldn’t be close with any of these 5 beautiful ladies. Love you all!
