Well Prettyladie, this is from someone who tried to be active within her sorority and raise two children all the while going to nursing school. If you are willing to have no sleep at all and half way fulfill your obligations to your priorities, then I say go for it! As for myself, God, my children, school, then social activities were tackled in that order. It may seem as if nursing school is forever, but it too shall pass then you can enjoy any social activities your heart desires. I'm not saying to devote your life to just children and school, because all work and no play will definitely stress Jane out. But I am saying that if you can make a calander that will include spare time that will not impede on your time with God, your children, and your studies then go for it. Because in the end, a sorority or any organization really doesn't want a member who half way does anything and it certainly doesn't want an under achiever.
