    Well, one of the things that I did was take my books with me everywhere, even to pow-wows. I would be sitting there reading legal textbooks while my hair was getting braided, etc. And although I still havent quit mastered the art of sticking to strict time management, if you put in a good 8-10 hours during the weekdays, you will have more free time on the weekends. Treat your college work like a full-time job and try not to slack during the weekdays. I know, totally easier said than done, but that's how some of my friends managed their busy lives! Good luck with your studies.


    And to tell you the truth, my pow wow life suffered while I was in school. But hey, it will always be there once you are done with your college life. I got to enjoy my first real pow-wow season since the beginning of college life for me 7 yrs ago, and it was great, and even better knowing I had earned my right to be there. Do what you have to do first and you can enjoy the benefits later.....

      I try to do my work after class...and I also have work study 10 hours a week.

      But most of my classes are computer classes and aren't that hard. So I try my best to get things done, go to work, and be able to bead and pow-wow!

        Well today I offically got down pretty close to my weight and body fat percentage and called my recruiter. I've set up a time to do the ASVAB in a few weeks, and then paperwork, and on to MEPS from there. So I've still got a lot of time to get well under my weight/body fat percentage.

        I got laid off today, which really sucks, but at the same time it's kind of a mixed blessing. I have been wanting to work part-time and spend more time with my daughter. And this way I'll have more time to work on the house (we're remodeling) and start a garden in the spring and maybe make time for...
