As students we have packed Outlook calendars and frantic schedules. Immediate access to the world and perhaps more importantly, the constant ability to plan schedules has made us all merely our own personal assistants.
Draining is the first word that comes to my mind right now. This third mini term has truly been tiring. Unlike past semesters at the University of Miami, this one has a few unique aspects to it.
Yes, I was one of the few naïve ones who thought that as I transitioned from consulting to student life, I was going to have a lot of time on my hands. Oh how wrong I was!
Things are busy! But in a good way. During undergrad, the majority of my time was probably taken up by classes and I certainly spent a ton of time in the computer lab – as a computer science major, the computer lab was, sadly, my second home.
It’s crunch time once again here in Miami.
The end of the second term is approaching fast. A little too fast.

Time management at business school is something many students struggle with. There is only enough time to pursue a fraction of the worthwhile opportunities available. Students constantly grumble about this as if it were out of their control, including me.
