Today’s guest post is by Sarah Smith. Sarah is an event planning student at Humber College in Toronto, Canada. Her passion for travel led to exciting event planning jobs. Sarah has been busy executing events for some of the world’s most elite, in the most exotic locations. These experiences, and Sarah has many to share, has convinced her that event planning is what she wants to do.
At Master The Event, we’re excited that Sarah will be sharing her event planning student experiences along the way. A future industry leader indeed!
It’s that time of the year again, the nights are slowly getting colder and the days seem shorter. As we all know, the time ahead won’t be the same. School is starting and summer is ending. With the transition in life approaching quickly, the only thing we can do is just to sit back and enjoy the ride. We all have different ways of going through things, but as we know ‘sharing is caring’.
Sarah Smith, an Event Planning Student, Shares her Transition from Summer to School.
1) Get Excited for the Little Things. As summer is coming to an end we will no longer be able to get excited for the big trip to the cottage, an epic music festival or a best friend’s wedding. Now it’s the time to stay positive and get excited for the little things. Take pride in what you do and enjoy it. Be excited to see your new friends at school, or about the cute boy or girl in your class that keeps flashing his or her beautiful smile at you. By getting excited you will be powering up your knowledge. After all, you are on the path to where you want to be. If you are not there yet, find what it is you want and get excited knowing that you are getting closer to your goal with each step of the way.
2) Treat Yourself. Whether it’s a new purse to accessorize your outfit or new school supplies, do something that puts a smile on your face. Do something for yourself to make you feel good. When you feel good, it reflects in your personality. Positive energy helps you stay focused and accomplish your goals.
3) Challenge yourself. Who doesn’t like a good challenge? The two words, ‘challenge accepted’, brings the sweet taste of victory to your mouth instantly. Challenge yourself in a way that you are able to look back and give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done. Start off small and you will be surprised where it will take you.
It may not be the most exciting time for us event planning students but let’s make it the most of it. Challenge yourself now and you will become a better person because of it. Plus you’ll have a rewarding career in a great industry: event planning.
