Please, please, please!! Help me reach my goal for a trip to nationals!

Hey guys!

Next year at the end of January, my co-ed community service based fraternity is planning a trip to a National Convention. It will help me with workshops and community service based events. I desperately want to go. This trip will help me and my fraternity tremendously, they have community service based workshops, leadership development workshops, and numerous other workshops and events that would help me and my fraternity better our values and events that we hold for our community. I go to Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. Athens and the surrounding areas are one of the poorest regions in the country, and our fraternity helps out the region so much. We are involved in ATCO (which helps adults in the area with disabilities), Give Kids The World (a resort in Florida that is a free vacation for terminally ill children and their families), local schools, Good Earth Farms (a local farm that donates all of their produce to local food shelters) and so much more! The past two quarters I have logged 75 hours of community service alone. We are a tremendous help to our community and this convention will only help us help our community more! I really need help to make this happen, so please please send anything my way, even 1 dollar will help!!

Everyone has an amazing time!

Busy Busy Busy!!

I failed miserably at the A-Z blogging challenge! Opps!! Maybe next April I'll do better. I have been way too busy with school, APhiO, and now a job. That's right, I GOT A JOB! At Central Foods, and that means monay! I will try to blog more, but having school work, a job, and service it will definitely be a challenge. Which seems so unfair, because I along with so many other college students are being pulled in so many different directions it seems like there  is not enough time for the things we use to relax and enjoy. I cannot tell you the last time I read a book for fun, or caught up on pinterest. To get a job you need to go to college and have an impressive resume. To go to college you need money, to get money you need a job. To get an impressive resume you need to have extra activities and good grades. To have good grades you need to study and to balance this time with your job and extra activities! It's enough to make your head spin! Hopefully I will find the time!
