Deadline! Yes, it’s deadline week for me. I lucked out. Last week was crazy with homework, quizzes and even a test. This week, however, is just for the magazine. Homework happens to be pretty light!
As my next deadline approaches, I am learning so much on philanthropy. Granted, I knew most of it already, I just didn’t realize how much there is to know. Sure, part of being in my sorority is philanthropy. My sorority has several that it supports, especially when the spring comes and we are organizing our 5K run. And then every other sorority and fraternity supports a cause or more as well. What I didn’t really realize is how much more there is out there.
In the midst of a busy schedule, people can find so many different ways to volunteer. There is practically no limit.
It also made me think about what I do. I mean, I’m taking classes and I am working with this internship, which is great, but where does my contribution to the community lie? I’m not helping girl’s club or at church events anymore, so what am I doing?
Thank goodness I do live in a sorority. Sometimes it gets hectic. Girls screaming, constant chatter and let’s not forget the meetings, but in the end, not only do I have great friends, but through our philanthropy events, we have so many ways that we give back to the community that really suit our interests and current lifestyle.
I’m sure as I get older, my contribution will change, but amid the craziness of college, I might actually have my head on straight.
