Fall 2016 Semester Goals

Ever since I started this blog back in June of 2015, I’ve written out my goals for each semester. There’s just something about solidifying my goals in a blog post that makes me more likely to complete them. This semester is no different, and the outcomes of my goals have definitely changed since last year. I’m focusing more on improving myself both mentally and physically instead of the social aspects of my life.


I was so focused on school and doing well last year, that I let my mental health fall. Instead of letting myself fall back into that place, I’ve set goals to keep me motivated, happy, and involved. After all, if I’m not happy with myself, how can I be truly happy around other people? Not only am I working on improving myself, I also have a ton of fun things lined up this semester! I can’t wait to see how everything turns out.

Spring Semester Goals

Well, Christmas break is now over and school has started. I’m currently eating my second salad of the week and writing this post in our student union, both of which are part of my New Year’s resolutions and goals! Last semester I really didn’t write a semester goals post. Instead I wrote a freshman year goals post. While I thought that was a good idea then, I’ve now realized that taking college semester by semester is the way to go. So lets see if I can tackle these second semester goals!


First semester was a HUGE change for me. New city, new state, new school and no friends. I think I grew a lot as a person and made some realizations about myself and other people along the way.  This semester I’m really going to try and focus on bettering myself and, hopefully, finding my place in college.

College Goals: Freshman Year

College. No parents, few rules, and a huge responsibility. I’ve been waiting to go to college for years now, craving independence and freedom. I think with any new experience, I always have goals in mind. What am I looking to get out of this experience? Well, my friends, today I have my college goals for you! Some of these may be completely unreasonable, but sometimes you have to dream big, right? KEEP READING “College Goals: Freshman Year”
