Goals for the Year

Welcome back to school everyone! Okay, so I wasn’t really excited to go back to school after my incredibly wonderful break, but everything seems to go okay so far. Classes are good, meeting up with friends is good, and taking advantage of opportunities is good, too.

So resolutions. . I’ve already written down most of mine, many of them having to do with tasks I should do like reading certain books and other pretty big craft projects I have in mind. Doing well in school is always something I hope to continue to do.

But I think what I didn't quite hit on was how I was going to do better this coming year. First of all, (and I've failed a bit so far, but hey, I have a whole year, right?) I would love to keep in touch with friends who aren't at Berkeley. Being a private person, I don't quite make an effort to keep in touch with those friends. Facebook helps a lot, but even then, it still requires an effort. But I think I have a plan or idea to keep in touch besides online messaging or phone calls…

Other goals this year include taking care of my body. It's not by a year by year basis, but an everyday thing. I have to be sure to exercise (I don't do much of this, but now I'm taking a dance technique class everyday, and it's been great) and eat well. Of course this also means doing everything possible to make my immune system stronger (especially since the flu or the cold is going around this time), making sure I get enough sleep (naps are really great too), and don't let stress from school and other commitments take over because that also compromises my body's immune system.

Anyway, I have so many other resolutions, but I think those will take longer than a year to accomplish. Besides, accomplishing these resolutions may be easy, but it's hard to maintain. So my suggestion would be to reflect upon yourself each year, but not necessarily make resolutions for the year, but for things you want to do or improve on in your life. As for me, I should probably stick to crafts to make and books to read for my resolutions each year.
