Wow! it’s finally 2015 and as I'm bringing in the New Year with my family, I can't help but feel like time is flying away from me. I’m overwhelmed with feelings of anxiousness due to the anticipation of entering the next chapter of my life. I want to arrive with an open mind and leave with many accomplishments. I like to track my goals and record my success because it’s enjoyable to watch my progress. Here are a few of the many goals I will complete before the end of 2015.
1. read more books
I've always admired those who can dive into a book on a park bench or read for fun while bored on a road trip. So this year I'm going to find books that grab my attention and read them.
2. stop worrying so much about what other people think
I will do more things that make me happy and not worry about the way others will look at me for it.
3. volunteer more
I didn't have as much time to volunteer as I usually do and I want to start back up again. Volunteering is something that I love to do because it truly makes me happy so this goal won't be difficult at all.
4. do some type of exercising at least 4 times a week
I am a health guru and fitness is very important to me. However, a pattern that I continue to fall into every year is a decline in exercising during the spring semester (because cheerleading season is over). So this year I am going to exercise all year round even if it's as little as 4 times a week.
5. attend more on/off campus events
It's always good to be involved and get the most out of my college experience.
6. go skydiving for my birthday
Something I've always wanted to do! I also want to do something big for my 21st birthday. I am so excited!
7. accomplish some things on my bucket list (run a 5k race, visit the wax museum, etc.)
This is a given, this just needs to happen.
8. take dance classes
It's never to late to start. I want to try contemporary dance classes because that style of dancing is so beautiful to watch. I will be able to express my personality through dance which is very exciting.
