A hectic February!
These past two weeks have been really chaotic for me. The month of February is full of events like Recruitment Week, school, work, and study abroad applications. First, my study abroad application was due so I had to contact professors, talk to IPO advisors and so on, but February 6 (when the study abroad application was due) was also the beginning of Recruitment Week for Greek life. I was part of the recruitment chairs (1 of 3), and was overloaded with decisions and planning for an awesome week. Every day we had to attend a rush event, which lasted from 5pm until approximately 9 or 10pm. And,on top of that, I had essays and group projects. Luckily things fell into place, which made it a fun week, plus Bid day! Delta, short for my sorority Delta Omicron Tau, welcomed 33 new pledges to our family which was the biggest pledge class ever! It was pretty exciting to welcome and try to remember 33 new names, but with time the names will make sense. The following week, this week, was a bit more calm, but not relaxing. Aside from a group presentation, I also had to work on my résumé and application for an internship. The internship would take place at Cedar-Sinai with a doctor who is an Oxy alumnus. We would basically be translating manuals from English to Spanish and Spanish to English as well as work with the community and patients. This internship would be a 2-unit thing so it would basically be another class because we have homework (:/). Though it's still exciting and next week we have orientation so that is something to look forward to. Speaking about things to look forward, I always look forward to work. Why? Because I have the best job on campus! I work as a student teaching assistant at the child daycare center on campus. I get to work with 2 and 3 year olds! It is a very fun job and I love it! Well I think I have overworked my audience with all this writing so I will stop here. Until next time! -Marilyn P.S. Look at this sunset!
