A typical day in my life at Longwood University is crazy. Here’s a look at a day in the life.
I wake up around 8:30 every morning and get ready to go to class. Then, since I live off campus, I ride the Farmville Area Bus (FAB), which is a shuttle for students to and from the apartment communities to main campus. Once I get to campus I start my day of classes. After classes are done for the day, or when I have a break between them, I usually grab a bite to eat and then go to the library to get some work done. Every day I try to spend every minute of the day being as productive as I can.
After classes are done, I go to work. I am a desk aide in one of our close-to-campus apartment communities, and so I work a two hour shift every time I go to work. After work the rest of my evening is filled with meetings and homework. Depending on the day, I have to go to a bunch of various meetings such as newspaper, Lancer Productions, Ambassadors, W.M.L.U, and many more. I also have a Thursday night radio show that I host so that changes up my schedule every Thursday.
Being an avid Longwood sports fan and Lancer Lunatic, whenever there is a game, I am there. Right now we are in basketball season, so at least twice a week you can find me in Willett Gym cheering on the men’s and women’s basketball teams. You can also find me running errands and going to my friends events as well. I like to support as many people and organizations as possible, so if someone is having an event, I always try to attend.
At the end of the day, I typically find myself back at the library to finish up work and get ahead. Like I said, I love to be productive, so once I get one thing done, I jump to the next! After I am done with all the things I want to get done for that day including meetings, homework, writing articles, blogging, and other hobbies, I ride the FAB back home to where I live. Once I get there, I clean and organize my room, take a shower, and usually (since i am so tired from the day!) jump into bed and do it all again the next day.
It might sound like a busy, busy day to some people, but for me it is really productive and fun! I get to spend time with my friends, learn new things, make memories, and gain experiences, from being involved and busy. I encourage people to get involved, but also know their limits. I also want to stress the importance of taking time to do the things you like to do, whether that is be involved, blog, play music, cook, etc. That way, if you do those things, a busy day, will always be a PRODUCTIVE and HAPPY day!
