Lesson 3: Your calendar is your best friend

In college there’s going to a million events–whether it be club activities, sports practices, social events, speaker events, classes, internship deadlines, etc; that you will want to go to, and it is important that the minute you see that facebook event you press “interested in”/”going to” or right after you receive that email about that application deadline, put it onto your calendar right away. There’s no way you’re going to be able to keep track of everything–and this is something I learned too late, because I wasn’t able to attend the events I wanted to go to simply because I would forget the time or day, or wouldn’t finish something I needed to do before I went to the event and ended up not going at all. Do not, I repeat, do not rely on your peers to be remind you of events to go to. You need to put things into your own hands.
