It’s easy to neglect staying organized and planning ahead. The last thing you want to do when you’re busy is take time out of your day to make sure everything is in order. But organization truly helps your life go more smoothly, and investing a little bit of time now will make a big impact later.
Planners are Our Friends
Plan your day, plan your week, plan your life, the future you will thank you. I like the physical act of writing a to-do list and there’s something really satisfying about checking off tasks on your list.
It doesn’t have to be expensive either. You can go the traditional route and get a cheap planner. There are also tons of free printables and templates to create your own DIY planner. You could even get creative and design your planner using a blank notebook or journal, markers and colorful pens.
As a student and employee, it’s important to balance work and school. Everyone should make sure their health is a priority. Health is one of those things that we all often overlook until we’re no longer healthy enough to carry out our daily tasks. This is especially annoying when there’s a big test or work event. As basic as it sounds, taking care of yourself by eating properly and working out will ensure you are operating at an optimal level.
Of course, when trying to balance classes, work, an internship, extracurricular activities and possibly a social life, the last thing on most people’s minds is three well-balanced meals and 30 minutes of exercise a day for five days a week. However, shifting your mindset about this is the key here. It’s self-care of the most vital form. How can you expect to kill it every day when you’re being fueled …
My name is Judi Bustamante, the new admin and outreach intern at Indiana INTERNnet for spring 2020. I am very excited to be a part of such a brilliant organization. I graduated from Indiana University – Indianapolis, with a Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Journalism with a concentration in public relations and a creative writing minor.
While at IUPUI, I was a member of the Native American Student Alliance and Public Relations Student Society of America. I also helped the Latinas Welding Guild with videography, photography and anything media related in my spare time.
My family and I moved to Indianapolis when I was an infant, so I call myself an honorary Hoosier. I am a first-generation Nicaraguan-American and am fluent in Spanish. Cruising the city by bike, especially at night, is one of my favorite pastimes. I am a fan of old architecture and love what …
2020 is almost here! Can you believe it? Every time we’re approaching a new year, there’s a lot of talk of resolutions. People typically focus on health, money, and other aspects of self-care. One thing that’s typically neglected in resolutions is your professional growth, especially if you’re a college student/young professional. Here are some resolutions you should make for 2020!
Keep an active LinkedIn profile.
It’s easy to neglect using LinkedIn. But you don’t need to use LinkedIn as often as you use Twitter or Instagram. Make a resolution to keep an active LinkedIn , but be specific about it! Aim to engage with two posts on LinkedIn each week, or make one new connection a month. While you may not think LinkedIn is worth your time, it’s still the main social network for professionals. Make sure your profile is up to date, and that you take time to fill …
This is my last post here on IndianaINTERN.net and while I am so incredibly sad to leave, I am so excited for what the future holds. That is why internships are so amazing, you get a shortened amount of time to get your feet wet in a career field and see what the future could potentially hold. I know I have said this a lot but starting my internship search and experience early has been a huge impact and influence on my life. I hope all you Indiana interns out there you are stepping out of your comfort zone and applying for as many internships out there. I hope that my blogs either made you laugh or gave you some sort of insight to being an intern or college student.
