I’m back from my month-ish long hiatus, and ready to talk allll about being on that g-r-i-n-d baby!
I know, I took a fat minute to get back online but honestly it was a much needed break. I took the entire month of August off from posting online because honestly I didn’t want to post anything anywhere unless it was some solid content. Being that August had so much going on, I couldn’t focus on content creation and thus – no posts!
Anywho! I’m back today to give you a BIG update on the happenings in my life at the moment! To begin, I moved into my lovely new apartment in Arizona around the second week of August. I have three amazing roommates who are also my Delta Gamma sisters! I have my own bedroom, bathroom, walk-in closet and desk nook, etc. which you will for sure see at a later date 😉 !
Now back-track a sec to April of this year; I started working at a local golf course in Arizona as a Beverage Cart Girl. I have absolutely loved my experience there and I’ve been working there all summer! (AKA, still working there!!)
Fast forward now for me – after moving into my new apartment, I began working for the amazing… Red Bull!! I am super excited to announce that I am now officially a Red Bull Wings Team member for Arizona! In my first month with this job I have made some great friends and had some awesome opportunities. I’m thinking of writing a post in “Day in the Life” style for either of these jobs… thoughts? Leave me a comment 🙂
Around my third week of August… I was offered a social media and pr internship position at Ali and Ariel! Ali and Ariel is a Greek Licensed apparel and accessories brand that allows sororities and fraternities to make custom designs for their chapters and events. I have been following and obsessing over this company since I was a freshman at ASU and I’m thrilled to be apart of the team! This first month-ish of interning has been so impactful and educational in all the right ways. My experience thus far has already been so hands-on and I’m learning a lot more about things I am passionate about!
On top of all those awesome things I am still a full time student at Arizona State University! This is where the main points of this post are located people…
Today I wanted to address the fact that HELLO college, part-time and full-time jobs, internships, social lives, clubs, etc. can be freaking busy and stressful. I am juggling a ton this semester and I know that there are people who are doing much more. I wanted to take the time – in this post to say, GO YOU. It was a difficult decision for me to take on this many opportunities knowing maybe my social life, or sorority or “me-time” would take the back seat for the semester. I’m tired, get cranky sometimes and I can feel burnt-out but ultimately it feels so amazing to say I’m doing it all. Obviously if you are going to college, academics are your number one priority but this time is also meant for networking, working hard for your career path, and getting your foot in the door(s). It is awesome that I have the chance to grow with these opportunities and learn even more than what I’m learning from class. Moral of the story is – even if it seems like A LOT, and even if you’re hesitant about having FOMO or not having the time you want to watch Netflix, or whatever it is – do it. This is freakin GRIND season baby, make the absolute most of your college years and opportunities. Don’t be afraid to take things on.
That’s all I’ve got for today – I hope this cute lil update + motivate did exactly that for ya! Thank you as always, for reading and supporting me! Don’t forget to share this post, like and comment – you know the drill 🙂
