Words of the Week – swamped

To be swamped means to be incredibly busy. At the start of October, most MBA students are swamped with classes, the job search, extracurricular and social activities. You might hear an MBA student say, “Thank you for asking me to lead this committee. Unfortunately, I can’t take on any additional commitments right now. I’m absolutely swamped with everything I have going on already.”  

I love the Roger Smith image above because it reminds me to appreciate the beauty of my surroundings even when I’m feeling swamped.
