Overwhelmed Beyond Belief

BLOG

“Hey how’s it going?”, “What have you been up to?”, “How have you been?” Hi, My name is Lena Daniels, I’m 20 years old, and my answer to all of those questions is “I’m overwhelmed. Always.”

As you may or may not have been able to tell by my lack of blog posts, I have been the busiest girl in the world, and I honestly love it. This semester has been kicking my booty in the best way possible, and I have no complaints— so far. The infamous “they” told me that junior year of high school was the year to fear. With SATs, college tours, and the most important GPA year, I thought I rode the struggle bus and was able to get off circa 2015. Yet junior year of college has proven to give my just as much of a challenge so far.

While this semester I am taking the least amount of credits thus far in my college career, I am focusing on my minor, mass communications, so all the coursework is completely new information. I am loving all of my classes so far, but I had to manually switch my brain off hospitality mode for a little bit in order to process all the new knowledge I’m filtering in.

Luckily for me, my new current internship came at the perfect time. I am working on the Public Relations team at a local agency, Six. I’m able to use everything I’ve learned in class so far and translate it into my job. I’ve been creating social media posts, pitching to the media, and planning events for our clients in the area. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever done before, but it combines all my interests, so it was definitely the perfect fit for me.

And of course, you know all about how Her Campus is taking over my life. Let me tell you, managing a team of 80+ girls is the most insane thing I’ve done, and it brings me so much joy. We’ve accomplished so much as a chapter in such a short period of time, and I’m so excited for the future of this organization.

Oh yeah, and a social life? She’s still going strong. I’m now a Universal Orlando annual passholder, which means my theme parks days are back in action. I never thought I’d cheat on Disney like this, but I’ve been having so much fun exploring these new parks with Josh, who finally gave in and committed to the AP life as well. I’ve also finally been able to attend the UCF football games again, which I am beyond excited about. Having to miss every game of last year’s undefeated was really disappointing, but with they way things are looking this year, we might have another amazing season (knock on wood!)

It’s been crazy, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Being bored is my least favorite thing ever, so I think I’m safe from boredom at least for a little while! Also, if you didn’t catch the exciting news, I am now the proud owner of my very own domain! Out with the old .wordpress domain, in with the fresh new website that’s 100% mine. I’m so excited to finally own my own little corner of the world wide web.

Time to got back into blog hibernation for a little while, while I continue to be the busiest person in the world. If I survive this semester without a gray hair, I’ll call it a success.

Until next time,

xoxo,
