...has just been a bit crazy, and about to get crazier.
1. Um, so first of all we are already mid-way through September. What.
2. I've already had an essay and an examination turned in. So I guess we've reached that point where us students have to be accountable for what we are reading.
3. I just got back from Kappa Kappa Gamma Leadership Academy.
I feel so honored to have been able to represent my chapter at this annual leadership conference. It was wonderful to meet so many new sisters--some current students like myself, others who are proud mothers, grandmothers, marathon runners and business leaders. Spending an entire weekend with these ladies to discuss ways to model leadership, ways to bring a vision to life and ways to up our standards to a whole new level has been so inspiring.
I learned so much this weekend about my leadership style, how to inspire and involve others, and how to look beyond my own objectives. I've really thought about how I've been contributing to my chapter and how we can make it better and better. One of the most surprising things I learned was how awesome I feel when I am channeling my energy into one specific thing. It was kind of nice to step away from everything for a while and just focus on Kappa. I took a break from school work and my other extra-curricular projects and just dived into the sorority spirit.
But now I guess I have to re-enter the real world.
