This morning, I typed your names on strips of paper and drew a winner. The winner is ... Tabitha!
Tabitha gave this piece of advice:
Advice is always hard when you don't know the person. My mom told me that at work you get to know the secretary/receptionist and the custodian...these people have a huge impact on your environment. I have found this to be true. I don't know where you are staying at college (9 hours away from home!) but you probably have a custodian of sorts at the very least and a house monitor or roommates so it applies... As a parent I liked the comment to call your parents regularly.Tabitha, I'll be sending an email your way. Please respond within 48 hours.
Thanks again to all who entered!
