A New Year and Old/New Goals
Welcome back and Happy New Year! With a new year comes new resolutions… but to tell you the truth, I don’t really believe in New Year’s Resolutions. I believe it’s important to constantly be setting new goals and “resolutions” for yourself, and not just once a year. However, since everyone is always talking about their New Year’s Resolutions in January, I do find it a good time to think about my current goals.
I always have current goals and long term goals in mind. Currently, my number one goal that is both current and long term is to learn how to deal with stress better. Slowly but surly I have gotten better over the years. I am good at prioritizing and getting things done on time, even under pressure, but I need to work on realizing this. I have found that having a little faith in me goes a long way and makes everything run a lot more smoothly. Having good “stress skills” is important in life because most good things do not come easily. For instance, my other current goal is to get into a combined dietetic internship and master’s degree program. This is a stressful process, as many of my peers will agree, but it is completely worth it because it is something that will ultimately make me happy. Another way I deal with my stress is through spending time with my family and friends, which is actually one of my “resolutions.” It’s easy to get caught up in life as a student at Berkeley, so this semester I think it should be all of our resolutions to spend more time with the people we love.
As for my long term goals, they mostly revolve around being happy and staying true to me. I would like to become a registered dietitian with a specialty in pediatrics, travel the world (starting with Venice and Greece), have a family, and stay healthy. I don’t think that’s too much to ask for, do you? ;) Whether you’re making New Year’s Resolutions or setting your current/long terms goals, I would love to help you sort things out during my office hours. Come by Mondays from 12-1 or Tuesdays from 11-12.
