I was the type of person that was super involved in high school and worked part time, so unfortunately I had no free time at all. Every minute of my day was planned out, and to be completely honest, that's how I liked it. Coming here and not getting involved in anything really made things tough, and also made it easy to be lazy.
Halfway through my first semester here, I was going stir crazy. I needed something to do, that involved getting up and going somewhere. Most days I didn't even get ready, my hair was thrown up in a ponytail and I didn't wear any makeup. I ended up joining a sorority, which helped a lot, and kept me pretty busy, but not as busy as I would have liked.
Second semester rolled around, and I picked up a part time job a few days a week, and that helped a little bit more. I actually had a reason to use my planner, and I was pretty busy, however I still wasn't satisfied with my schedule.
This fall, I took a Vice President position in my sorority, and also started working more hours at work, and also got involved with a few more organizations here on campus. As it stands now, most of my days start at 8am and end around 9pm. I am constantly going, and that is exactly how I like it. I gradually got more involved each semester I have been here, and I honestly couldn't imagine having it any other way. My grades have stayed high, I am meeting more people and making more friends then I ever thought I would, and I have a lot of structure, which is something I need.
