“True leaders will let you fail, but they would never let you be a failure” – Former Army General Stanley McChrystal

Something I learned in the military– from taking caring of staff to learning in classes, this quote follows me everywhere. In addition to being a supervisor, I learned how to balance my social, work, and academic life. Three circles which consume me as a student and I will present to you my life below:

Sunday: Suprise birthday party for one of my friends. We can never take a picture where we all look at the same camera.

Monday-Thursday: Managing meetings and supporting staff events


Thursday: Krome Radio

Everyday: Attend Lectures and Study

Anyway, one of the greatest skills i learned before entering college is time management. I discovered that using a calendar and planning my schedule helps a lot in overseeing the 3 circles of academic, social, and work life.
