First Time: Being Employed

This week I had my first experience working. I can honestly say that my work is not work because of how much I enjoy being a camp counselor. I am counselor of the baby campers, also known as the cute ones (they line up in choo-choo train form). Every morning I welcome the parents with their babies who smile as soon as they walk in. That is he smile I work to keep! And as much as I know I have taught them, they have reminded me of how simple it is to have fun when you let things be.Below is a…See More

First Time: Seeing the Sunrise

I am currently writing to you from the undergraduate (also happens to be UNDERground) quiet study room at Van Pelt Library. VP has been my home since last wednesday when readings days began. I won't talk about the stress, sleepless nights (although I did see the sunrise for the first time)  and stacked coffee cups because anyone who has ever studied for a final already knows the drill but, I do want to share with you three things I have learned from finals week.  1. It is okay to reward…See More

First Time: Hosting an Event

I recently came across a thought provoking question, When was the last time you did something for the first time? . I instantly thought this would be a great topic for a blog series! So I have challenged myself to post at least once a month on a "First Time" experience. To kick off my first "First Time" blog I will share a bit about my experience being a host at the first Festival Latino event. Festival Latino is a week-long celebration of the richness of Latino culture on Penn's Campus. The…See More

"Something that works for is setting goals. For example,if I finish reading a certain amount of pages I let myself use my phone, get a snack or listen to a song on youtube etc.. Hope this helps! Good Luck :)"

Spirit Boosters

Posted on March 20, 2013 at 5:00pm 2 Comments

The reason why I was so excited for Spring Break, two weeks ago, was because I needed to see my family. I needed that last push and extra motivation to finish off a stellar Freshman year! Luckily, my trip was a success. Not only did I come back with a tan but, I came back ready to take on my next round of midterms (I took 2 today, just 1 more left on Friday).

Now, I will be honest and tell you that during the first few days back it was not that easy...which is why I have compiled a…
