Wow. I can't believe it has been over a week since my last post. As you can tell from the title of this post, things have been pretty stressful since school started back. Its the second full week of school and I am already completely loaded down with: homework assignments, case studies, a test, paper, and presentation.. all due within this one week, might I add. Sometimes I feel like all the professors have a meeting and plan their schedules the same.. but then I think about how silly and unrealistic that really is. Maybe just one of those weird coincidences of life.. that all of my classes have multiple things due in the same week. That was completely a rambling thought.. so anyways.. I find it funny that I can sit here and ramble on in a blog, but I can't manage to come up with the first line of my paper due on Thursday. What I've learned already from this semester is that starting major geared classes are no joke! Most of my classes this semester involve a major group oriented project. Its the second week of school and I am already learning the importance of being able to work well with others. 3 of my 4 classes involve a group project.. and 2 of these 3 count the project as over half my grade! (God, please bless me with a good, hardworking group!) Working with a group to compose a business proposal or marketing plan is somewhere (hopefully) in my near future.. so although these projects will be filled with busy work,drafts, final copies, late nights, meetings and presentations.. I'm looking forward to it!
I think working well with others is very important for life. I would like to believe that I have mastered these skills through all the hours spent on a basketball team, softball team, sorority, and the other various clubs and organizations I have to sink my claws into.. but the truth is.. Are we ever really done learning? Only as far as a proposal idea, I have already learned new things about working with others. I feel as though I could succeed more in life from the lessons I have learned about life from college, rather on the knowledge I learn from college. I truly believe that everything in life can be a lesson if you let it be. We can learn so much from everyday life. Nothing dramatic or big has to happen to learn a "life lesson".. Life lessons are around us and apart of us all day, everyday. Its what we choose to learn that day, that makes it apart of our life. As we grow older, the life lessons seem to become more clear. So many things my parents tried to teach me and tell me never made any sense until I got out on my own. I thank them will all my heart for coaching me along this crazy journey called life. And as for those life lessons, well I believe you have to live your life to learn anything!

I've spent the majority of my college years trying to figure out my life and I have realized over time that while I'm busy making plans, life quickly passes by. So I took a break from planning my life and things fell into place exactly the way I wanted. Friends and Family are most important to me and I thank God everyday for all the blessings in my life. I am lucky enough to have the best pair of parents, wonderful fun-loving friends, and the most beautiful supportive sorority sisters in the world. I have enjoyed everything life has offered me so far and I am looking forward to all that the future holds for me - and the rest is still unwritten…
