I feel that it is very important to set direct goals for yourself every once in a while. Whether it is short term or long term, it’s always extremely rewarding to achieve something that you have been working for. Here are my goals for the upcoming semester:
-I have recently become the Campus Correspondent for a Her Campus Chapter at my college; SUNY Oneonta. I am extremely excited for this opportunity and truly can’t wait to begin producing posts and managing my team. Becoming the leader of this chapter is something I am so proud of myself for, some of my hard work is finally paying off! I am very excited to start this amazing journey and see how far it takes my teammates and I.
Finding A Balance:
-I would like to really work on balancing time spent with my friends/boyfriend/myself and of course schoolwork this semester. My GPA went up .7 points between my first and second semesters in college (God bless my soul for switching my major from Biology to English). I would like to see my GPA increase even more throughout the next semester.
-Something I really want to make sure I keep up with this semester is staying healthy. I despise the dining hall food, so it’s easy for me to skip out on dinner and eat a pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream instead. I want to make sure I keep healthy snacks in my room, consume healthy meals as well as making going to the gym part of my daily routine.
-Juggling a blog, a Her Campus team, as well as everything that comes along with college can get pretty stressful at times. I am looking forward to being extremely organized this semester! Something I like to continuously do to stay organized is going through old files on my computer and getting rid of what I no longer need. I also like to do this on my phone with my old pictures and applications. I have also recently purchased the Kate Spade agenda and am in LOVE, I can’t wait to use this bad boy and stay on track!
-Last semester I went to a study abroad fair at my school and was completely hooked. I want to study abroad so bad but sadly, am not sure I can because of the minor I am trying to fulfill. I definitely want to talk to a few more professors as well as the head of the studying abroad department this semester to see if there is any way that I can possibly study abroad.
-Updating my blog is probably one of my biggest goals this semester. I know that I’ll be able to keep up with it because it’s something I really enjoy, but I want to make sure that I continue to pump out quality posts three times a week.This is something I am going to have to work hard to achieve, but I know I can definitely do it.
Do you have any goals for the upcoming semester? What goals did you achieve in your previous semesters? I would love to hear all about them 🙂
