So my life is crazy. There's never enough time or money or energy to get all the things I need/have/want to do.

Of course, I'm doing school - 18 hours of 4000 level classes... and I want a 4.0. We will see. Also, I am on IFC, and we meet fairly regularly. I am doing a lot of stuff with Greek Life apart from IFC and SAE, so that's another commitment. Then I'm obviously in SAE, where I am Pledge Educator, so I write and deliver all the history and stuff for new members, plus, I'm starting from scratch on that program because I want it to be revolutionary and win an award. I'm also the Correspondent and Chronicler, so there's more stuff. Then this past Thursday I became the President of the newly established Tyler Student Chapter of SHRM at UTT, and we're planning on winning a national award. Then of course, I work in Career Services, so that is a good chunk of time as well.

I'm just trying to keep my head above water, honestly. I'm not sure what all this is going to do for me someday, but hopefully it helps me get into an amazing MBA program. I've looked at a ton of them: everything from UTD to Yale. I'm sure that once I get there (where ever "there" is) that the fun won't stop. I can't help but be over-involved. Here's the clincher to this post: I do say no to people. All the time actually. I'm constantly being asked if I can do things, and I just say no and offer no explanation which makes me sound like an ass, but whatever.

I'm ready for my Narnia collection to come in the mail. I need a new book to read.

Finally, a new post

Alright, so this semester has been good thus far. Even with 18 hours of 4000-level classes, I've kept ahead on my homework. I still have plenty of free-time to read (I read at least one book a week) and hang out with friends. Fraternity stuff is very time consuming, especially this week, which is Rush, but it's all been enjoyable thus far. I feel like I've earned a lot of people's respect recently because of all the work that I've done.

I keep busy enough that I don't have time to feel sorry for myself about living in East Texas. With all the things mentioned above plus my Career Services Internship, I pretty much keep aloof. I don't drink very much at all, which is weird considering my behavior last semester and this summer. I had a drinking phase, then a party phase, then a bar phase, and now I just kinda hangout. It's been good, and it's much less expensive! I didn't realize how much money I spent on alcohol until I came back from my summer with not a dime to my name.

I swear I'm gonna start working out soon. Maybe Monday. I honestly need someone to go at the same time as me, so I feel more obligated to go. I can go anytime on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday during the day but would prefer the morning because there's way less people in there then. It's just hard to get motivated to go by myself, ya know? Monday might be difficult to start because of....

PRIDE! This weekend in Dallas with MD! So excited. I've never been before, so we'll see how it goes, but I'm pretty pumped about it, not gonna lie. I'm sure I'll be exhausted when I return, however, and that makes me think that I probably won't want to get up on Monday at 7 to workout... We'll see.

Time to get some homework done. Later.
