I am so stressed. Every time I run my fingers through my hair more and more continues to fall out. I guess it is okay since I have hair as thick as the Earth’s mantle. I have around a month left of school with so many major assignments due. I think I am going to cry.
Two speeches and two exams, two astronomy exams, two major papers in writing, two tests and a ten-minute presentation for Introduction to mass communication all in a month. Lately, I have been procrastinating and now I get overwhelmed with just the thought of my upcoming assignments. I told myself at the beginning of the year I would never procrastinate, but that is what college does to you. It knocks you down to your knees and now I just have to get right back up and do what I have to do.
I keep telling myself, “just one more month.” I have been through the majority of the school year being a first generation college student, and I have done really well. My planner is still my life and the only thing keeping me sane.
*Takes deep breathe* Just one more month.
On the other hand, I have some really exciting things coming up. For the Hawk Leadership Institute, I have a presentation coming up that will reflect all the aspects of leadership I have learned. I can present it in any form I like, and I am glad I have the chance to tell my peers everything I have learned and what I am going to do next. I will also be attending the Annual Student Leadership Banquet to receive an award for my achievements in HLI. How exciting! My mother Yolanda Gonzalez and my better half, Ibrahim Bouras will be by my side while I receive it and that is the most exciting part for me. They get to see how hard I have worked, and I know how proud both of them are of me. I want to let them know that my accomplishments are not just for me, but for them and my family as well.
At this rate, I will definitely be inducted into the National Society of Leadership and Success. I heard the majority of the officers will be graduating this semester so I will certainly apply for an officer position. I was very involved this school year, but I am going to go above and beyond next year. The majority of the school will either know me or know of me. I am going to grab the bull by the horns. I am going to make a difference here on campus, I promise.
This week, I will begin my first Orientation Leader workshop and I am so excited to learn things I did not know. I will let you all know how that goes.
So, I was fostering a puppy from the League City Animal Shelter, and I am so eager to announce that I found Leana a home. The best part? My friend Melody Ayala adopted her, so I still get to visit. She goes by the name of Sandy now and even has another dog to play with. I feel great knowing I was able to find her a new home with a loving owner. She was such a sweet dog, and I actually kind of miss her. I was so close to adopting her myself, but once my friend Melody told me she was interested and she had another dog I was over the moon. It was like a win-win for everyone. I hope Melody and Sandy are enjoying each other’s company. 🙂
