My first semester of college was fantastic, but I know this semester will be even better! I find that listing your goals on a public forum kind of makes you more accountable for them, so here are my goals for a healthier, happier semester.
- Keep up my 4.0 GPA.
Last semester was tough, but I scraped through and reached my goal of a 4.0! I was so proud of myself. I know this semester will be even more difficult, as I’m taking *CALCULUS* for the first time (I am not a math person…), but I’m challenging myself to reach this goal again!
- Do the No Junk Food Challenge.
I’m a very disciplined person, but anyone who knows me well knows that this doesn’t apply to my eating habits. Sadly, I am a pretty unhealthy person, but I’m trying to change my ways! I saw this on FB and got my roommate to try it along with me, as soon as the new semester starts. We’re trying for 21 days at the least, but shooting for more!
- Go to the gym 3 times a month. Some of you are reading this and going, “Only 3 times?!” But considering how many times I went to the gym last semester (3 times… total), this is good. Baby steps! My roommate is a total health nut, so hopefully she will encourage me to go through with this goal.
- Join more clubs. Last semester, I only joined two clubs on campus. 1) Filipino Student Assocation and 2) IMPACT Service Breaks [Spring Break Trip Organization]. I regret not getting more involved, but I wanted to see if I could balance my classes, work, making new friends, etc. Now I know I can, so I want to join at least 2 more clubs this semester.
- Get more sleep. Getting enough sleep is SO important in order to succeed in college. Last semester, I was learning how to balance taking 14 credit hours and working 15 hours a week. It was definitely a hard transition, and I was NOT getting enough sleep. So I began setting school as one of my top priorities. That meant no procrastinating with homework, no staying late binge-watching The Office, and no going out late on school nights. I hope to continue this habit this semester!
