If you find this balance, can you please send me the recipe?
Jk jk, college life isn't all bad. It's not even half bad. But all I can do is tell you about my college experiences up to this point.
I big part of my college life is marching band, and even more recently my membership in TBS. In TBS I serve as active treasurer. Basically I handle all the financial happenings and interactions of the sorority and head fundraising projects. It's not overly complicated, but it can take up a good deal of my time, especially when I'm also a full-time student with a part-time job.
Balancing all these roles can get pretty overwhelming but if there's one thing I've learned it's how to use my friends, peers, and sisters as support. Having an active and balanced college life isn't something one goes at alone. I'm so lucky to be surrounded by driven, intelligent, passionate sisters and peers. They help and support me from taking on any delegated projects, to just giving a warm hug on a day that seems almost never-ending.
But as with anything in life, if you love doing it, it will never feel like work. I don't really mean that what I do everyday isn't work, but rather that the outcomes produced--a better organization, a better band, and a better self--are all things that make the hard work worth it. Plus it doesn't hurt when you're surrounded by your best friends. So, what more could I really ask for?
