It’s crazy to think that it’s already been over a month since the semester started. Honestly, I feel like I just came back to school, but in reality I’m almost a 1/3 of the way done! It blows my mind all the time, how quickly time is passing. Before this semester comes and passes, I have a couple of goals that I want to accomplish.
Be On Time
This is something that I struggle with so much. I’d like to blame my parents for this since it seemed like we were always late going places growing up, but there’s no one I can blame when I’m in complete control of my schedule now. I hate being late and I have no good reason to be late. I just always find myself doing everything last-minute, so one of my main goals is to make sure I give myself enough time to do simple things like the 15 minute walk to class and not rush and try to make it under 10 minutes!
Go To Bed Earlier
This one’s pretty self-explanatory. For a while, I was going to bed at a pretty reasonable time, about 10:30 or earlier and I loved it! Now I’ve trickled into going to bed around 12:30-1 am every night. Granted most nights I’m still getting about 8 hours of sleep, but I know that going to bed this late is going to catch up on me pretty soon!
Participate in Class
I’d like to think that I’m a pretty good student. However, I’m the type of student that listens, takes notes, studies, but never really raises my hand in class. This year, I decided to really put in an effort and participate in class. Not only will it boost my grade with participation points, but I can get my ideas or answers verified or clarified when participating in class. I’ve been telling myself that nothing bad can come out of it and it’s been working!
Make This Year Count
Being my senior year in college, I’m in a little bit of shock. I’m honestly not ready to graduate. Of course the idea of not having papers, assignments, and hundreds of pages to read in textbooks sounds amazing, but these four years went way too fast and I know I’m going to miss it. My main goal of this semester and senior year in general is to make it count. For me this means joining societies and clubs that I’ve always wanted to, but never had the motivation to. I want to actually get involved in these societies too, apply for positions, attend meetings etc. Not only can I learn a lot, but it’ll also boost my resume showing my involvement on campus. I also want to keep up with work out classes at my school gym, it’ll probably will be the last time I can take spinning or yoga for free! I want to go out with my friends and do spontaneous, crazy things with them. It’s our last year together and who knows where life will take us all after graduation.
It being my senior year is really quite scary. I’m hoping that having these goals in mind for the semester and year will make this year be the best year so far!
