Celebrate everyday moments.


As the weeks start to get busier and busier, and my professors keep assigning more and more papers/ projects/ tests, it’s important to celebrate everyday moments.

I keep telling myself that I’ll be able to relax once Spring break rolls around, but after really thinking about it today, that’s no way to live. Today I tweeted “that I’ll be able to breath once spring break starts”. After I pressed the send button, I started to think about what I had just said. Although it’s totally okay to look forward to something, it’s important not to live for one event. Because news flash: the event will come and go! I seem to have a bad habit of doing this. I live for the times I’m not stressed (aka never), times like summer and spring break. I start countdowns on my phone and have sticky notes on my desk listing things that stand between me and breaks.

School gets me worked up and stressed like nothing else, but you only go to college once (YOGTCO)! So, instead of worshipping the breaks, I need to find a way to appreciate the fun and manage the schoolwork.

This weekend is the perfect example! On Friday night we had our first Tri Delta function! It was game themed and it was the opening night of the Olympics, so 10 of us thought it was the perfect opportunity to dress up as the Olympic rings! How perfect were our outfits? 


Saturday was a day of balance.  I was ecstatic because it was Big/Little reveal day and I had been waiting for this day all week! It could not have worked out more perfectly. Seriously, I’m in love. I finished the day with some reading and some emails (see perfect balance!). I spent the majority of Sunday doing homework but I had so much Friday and Saturday that I didn’t even care!

LOVE my big!

College is a time of balance. You have to take the fun with schoolwork and learn how to accomplish both. With second semester flying by already, I’m going to work on cherishing the fun events while I’m here, instead of living for another. Today we have a snow day so I think I might put this plan into action. Snow fight in the morning, homework all afternoon!

Remember,


xoxo
