Like any typical college student, procrastination is a big part of my life. During finals week, I had a very lengthy “to-do” list. Yet, somehow I always found something else other than studying to do. Thankfully, I was able to discipline myself enough to get all my studying done, even though it may have been last minute. (Don’t worry… I did just fine on my finals!) When I arrived at Malone three years ago, I was the nerdy freshman who spent all of her time doing schoolwork. While studying is a very important aspect of college, it is also important to enjoy your time as well. You have to find a balance between play and work. While I have not mastered this balance completely, it is definitely something I have been working on during this past year. Looking back, I see so many ways my time at Malone has molded me into a better individual.
One night during finals week, after spending a substantial amount of time studying, I decided I was going to head to bed. That was until I received a tweet from a friend in which she informed me that she, along with two other girls, were sitting in the elevator watching YouTube videos. Bed could wait; clearly, I had to join. We then spend the next few hours going up and down while watching videos. While this may seem completely random and absurd, moments like this make college life so great! I heard a quote recently, which said, “It’s not the nights we got enough sleep that we will remember.” This definitely reflects my junior year at Malone!
