How do you juggle work, school, and your social life? I feel like I don't have time to have fun anymore!
All Work & No Play
Dear All Work & No Play,
I completely understand, LIM life is certainly busy! But busy girls need time to have fun too. This is where time management comes into play; if you aren't familiar, now is an ideal time to hone this skill. Keep an organized planner and be sure to have a clear understanding of your priorities, deadlines, and responsibilities. This will help you figure out where you can spare that dinner date or much needed shopping session. There may be crazy weeks where there simply isn't time to take away from work or school; just remember to breathe, and maybe even see about having more free time from work--supervisors can be quite understanding with employees who are in school full-time. It's all about a balance so you're not burned out at the end of the semester. You don’t want to wind up not caring about your responsibilities altogether because you’re exhausted.

You'll get the hang of it!
