Running Out of Time

How did I lose my time management skills?

Running Out of Time

I never could have imagined how different college life would be than high school. Sure, I thought the classes would be more difficult and that I would have to wash my own clothes, but I never anticipated how much I would struggle with time management. Throughout high school, I was an honor student taking a full load of courses, varsity high school athlete every season and I played club lacrosse year round. I was always able to keep my life in order and complete all of my assignments and never miss a game or meet. I figured I would have so much extra time, since I am not a collegiate athlete and I only attend classes so many hours a day. I forgot to take into account everything that was done for me on a normal basis. For instance, washing my clothes, preparing my food, etc. and basically having my whole day already pre planned for me. Here I am, over a month into school and I am still digging myself out of a whole with my classes and struggling with all of the online learning. I have found it takes a great deal longer to complete the assignments when you have to figure out the work yourself. I am used to easy access to my teachers, but Covid-19 has made that more difficult. I also thought there would be access to tutors for extra help, but they are obviously in short supply. I have obtained planning calendars from the Academic Success Center and tried to map out my class meetings, assignments, quizzes, projects, and tests. I have even added club activities to this schedule, because life cannot be all work. Hopefully this will put me on the path to success. I am sure there are other people in this same boat. The struggle of running out of time is real. I am just hoping that I can dig myself out of this hole!

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
