“I love making lists and being organized and writing things out. I will make a list for everything: things I have to do throughout the day, the application process and things required for it, just random things. I have notes on my phone and I use them all the time. I make myself study guides—really nice ones. I highlight all the things that I need in my lecture notes and then I’ll make study guides for my exams. It makes me feel better. It’s less stressful in the long run because I know my information is structured and organized. For my papers too, I hand-write everything. I physically move things around on the paper. I’ll circle things in different colors and move them around on the page. Then, I type everything out. After all that, I make a Writing Center appointment. If things don’t flow the right way, I will immediately change it. In my work with my sorority, it also requires that I be really organized with all my responsibilities. Working with membership, programs, as well as social media, I need to manage each of these commitments and balance them. My advice? Plan ahead. Make sure the things that you’re doing now will impact your life in a positive way.”
