Hopes for the year

I haven't really made one specific new year's resolution that I'm determined to keep. I think that goals should come along as you realize that changes or improvements need to be made. But during winter break I was able to evaluate fall semester and there are a few things that I have in mind to do not just for this semester, but as part of everyday.

1. Spend more time with my family.
This is hard for most college students, and especially for me since I'm back home only a few times out of the year. But when I'm not able to see my parents, at least spend the time to talk to them more over the phone and to let them know more about what's going on here in Berkeley.
2. Make it a point to spend quality time with my roommates and friends in Berkeley.
Although I see my roommates and circle of friends several times a week, there never seems to be time to really talk to them and see how they're doing. It's really important to me to stay close to those I love, and I want to make more of an effort this year to have one on one times with people and have meaningful conversations rather than the quick, "how are you?"
3. Pray more
I'm of Christian faith, and God is the priority of my life. But just like everything else, I push that aside in the busyness of school. But I really want to be able to spend more time in prayer so that I can keep God as my center and stay rooted in my faith.
