12 Things I Hope To Accomplish in 2017

2016 has been my greatest year so far, but I have goals and dreams for 2017 to be even better.

12 Things I Hope To Accomplish in 2017

We all have New Year's Resolutions that we never actually follow through with. I want to change that this year, by making myself push through and accomplish every single thing on this list.

1. Grow a stronger bond with God.

Here recently, I have become closer with God, but because of my busy schedule, I don't lend him enough of my time. I hope to find more time for him in 2017.

2. Exercise frequently and drop a few pounds.

I took advantage of the caf's dessert bar and ice cream machine way too much this year.

3. Become more outgoing.

I'll talk your head off if you're one of my close friends, but it's hard for me to approach someone new. I want to change that and learn how to make more friends this year.

4. Make someone smile.

This is a personal goal that I have every day. I want to accomplish this goal every single day in 2017. I know it's small, but some times a smile is all someone needs to brighten their day.

5. Keep my relationship going at the same rate that it's going.

I love exactly where I'm at in my relationship. I don't want it to backslide in 2017 or pick up too fast. I think that we're in a very good spot for both of us right now.

6. Catch up with old friends.

These past couple of years after high school have been super busy and crazy. I want to meet up and catch up with all of my old friends at some point this year and let them know that I still think about them.

7. Learn to cook.

I know how to cook the basic stuff, but I'm almost 20 years old and have never cooked a whole lot. I want to start cooking more instead of going out to eat this year.

8. Learn that I can't sign up to do everything.

In high school, I liked to be involved in just about everything on campus. I try to transfer that over to college, but I need to realize that college is a different ball game and I don't have the same time and energy as I did in high school to sign up for every club, activity, and event going on.

9. Grow in my career.

This past semester, I had the most growth I've ever had towards my teaching career. I took a lot of classes that involved visiting schools and even tutored some children. I hope that in 2017, I can get even more experience in my career to better prepare myself.

10. Spend more time with my parents.

I know that they think I'm too old to hang out with them, but I don't feel that way. I want to do more things with them this year, than I did last year. I want to let them know that I still love and care about them.

11. Travel

I love traveling. It is one of my favorite things to do in itself, as well as with my parents, and with my boyfriend. We travel to some amazing places almost every year, and this year my goal is to travel to some super exciting place. (Although, I don't know if we'll be able to top our last two trips. I want to try, though.)

12. Become a better me.

Lastly, I just want to become the best version of me that I can in 2017.
