15 Things Only Student Leaders Understand

If you’re a student leader, then the word “busy” is completely redefined. And because no one understands you like another student leader would, here are 15 situations that are all too ~real~ for the busy collegiette that you are!

1. Your inbox fills up faster than you can check it

2. You’re part of multiple group messages or Facebook pages within your one organization

3. In one week you’ll have multiple meetings for a singular organization, which you can break down by whole-group, exec, committees, etc.

4. You know how to work every projector on campus

5. You pack your lunch and dinner every day

If you forget, you’ll just go hungry for the day. 

6. You sometimes forget to do normal human things like eat or go to the bathroom

7. You’ve gotten really good at remembering names

8. School is, like, number four on your list of priorities

9. Your to-do lists look more like novels

10. School is more like a full-time job ~with~ overtime

11. Walking around campus is a constant wave session

12. Most of your texts are you delegating

13. Boring classes are the perfect time to reply to emails and get other work done

14. Your computer and phone die almost twice a day on average

15. You use your email as much as your friends use Snapchat

Happy leading, collegiettes!
