The first week of classes prompted me to get organized and start working hard once again. With 18 credit hours including an internship, a couple part-time jobs, spinning classes and RA duties, I realized I will have to be an expert time manager this semester. Thankfully, over break I was able to buy myself a laptop! This is helping me organize my to-do lists, keep readable class notes and an updated calendar of assignments due. I definitely recommend keeping a planner, either electronically or old-school journal style to help you keep things under control as you start the New Year.
Don’t forget to work in some personal time as well! Taking an 15 minutes to an hour a day exercise, watch a show, paint your nails, or play a video game can allow yourself to de-stress, collect your thoughts, and remind yourself that you are human! You can only do so much in one day. Realize that hectic schedules can take a toll on your mind and body so be sure to listen to your body’s signals.

As you may or may not know, I am a community advisor in the College Commons apartments, which is very similar to a Resident Assistant (RA) in the residence halls. One of our job duties is to host programs for our residents as a way of community building and as a great way to get people involved. This past Sunday, I hosted a program at my apartment where I cooked burritos and made everything from scratch (except for the tortillas…). Cooking for people may be one of my favorite things to do, so I chose to do it for my program. Not as many of my residents showed up as I would have liked, but I’m hoping for a better turn out next time. I could probably also improve my advertising techniques, as this is difficult to do in an apartment-style living arrangement. Next month, I am planning on cooking a vegan dish that is a little more exotic than simple burritos (not to discredit burritos at all, since they are my favorite food), but my goal will be to get my residents to try some foods that they have never tried before.

Me, Justin Bieber, and Kaylee Cox as a hippie at Goodies for Goblins

Last night, the Wilmington College campus hosted “Goodies for Goblins”, a trick-or-treat event for youth of the community in which they went through the residence halls and received candy from students that reside on campus. I went to the event and it was a lot of fun! I was dressed as a piece of pizza with a parrot hat (because these two articles obviously go together in costume form). There were even a few children that I recognized from the summer; I worked with Grow Food Grow Hope on campus and we hosted a garden camp. There are plenty of events on campus that the community can get involved with!
In athletic training news, the month is coming to and end and that means juniors and sophomores in the program will switch to a new rotation. Last month, I was with a chiropractor and at Dayton Sports Medicine Institute. Next month, I will be finishing up with men’s soccer and moving to indoor track when soccer is finished. I enjoyed my last month of rotations, but it will be nice to be back on campus and working out of our own training room. This will take me up until the start of winter break; this semester is flying by!
