Something that I learned just in the past week is that hard work really does pay off! My week was packed with one good piece of news after another — I got very positive news regarding a bunch of summer internships I’m interested in, I connected with many wonderful Union alumni and had some awesome conversations (Union alumni are the BEST — for real!), I got into a class that had previously been full for next term, and I found out that my theme house will be reinstated next year (after some serious adversity)!! The best part about all of the positive news was that none of it was the result of mere “good luck” — I worked my little booty off for every single thing! Fall 2012 has been my most rewarding term yet at Union!
