Goals for 2015

6 January 2015

With everything that’s happened around the end of the year, I haven’t really had time to think about this whole “new year” thing — beyond just the basics of getting everything settled. Heck, I didn’t really have much time to even look back on last year. Granted, though, 2014 was what it was… lots of un/under-employment, the knee injury, and attempting to figure out what I wanted in life.

Anyway. Now that the move is done, and classes have started, I can start thinking towards goals I have for this year.

goals2015

Personal
» Read 50 books, preferably beyond what I need to read for classes.
» Get better at keeping in touch with friends. Including new/local ones. Maybe work on whatever anxiety-like issues* that have been interfering.
» Shed some endo weight. Between water weight, stress eating, bloating, and medication side effects, I’m just a little less confident with my body. I’d like to get over that.
» Look into Physical Therapy for the knee.
» Re-read the Harry Potter series. (Also trying to get my niece to read them, maybe this can be a bonding thing.)
» Visit my cousin Saramoira. Self explanatory: she’s awesome.
» Fully unpack the apartment by March 1.
» Visit 2 state parks, and 1 national park or monument

Academic
» Maintain at least a 3.0
» Get some of my gen ed credits transferred over. Given that a big part of my major for my first BA was English, I find it frustrating that none of those credits fulfilled my core requirements.
» More scholarships. Less loans.

Financial
» Get a job. Doing the school full time thing is going to make this an interesting challenge, but I need to be able to support myself.
» Stay within budget. Whatever that ends up meaning for me. I just need to cut out any frivolous spending when possible.

Optional
» Go on 1 date. Realized at NYE that it’s been about 3 years since I’ve even kissed someone romantically. While I’m good with my singleness, you know, a little admiration from an attractive somebody wouldn’t be unwelcome.
» Go to a BSU sporting event. I’m not a big college sports person at all, just figured since I get in for free, why not try it once?

Mostly it’s all survive school, don’t go broke… Despite that, I know it should be a fairly interesting year.

*I don’t officially have that. And I’m not saying I necessarily do. Just something along those lines that’s been pretty engrained in me since youth.

    Love these! Hope 2015 is all sorts of awesome for you xo

    Great goals! Best of luck with them. I definitely regret not going to sports events when I was in my undergrad and grad programs. Sports aren’t really my thing, but it would have been fun to attend with my roomies just a few times. Hope you have fun!

    • Thanks! I didn’t do too many sporting events in my first undergrad either. I definitely regret not going to more soccer games, which was a very fun community thing.
