In a previous article, I declared this summer as my summer.

One of the ways I am making the most of the summer of 2021 is by setting and accomplishing goals that I created at the beginning of the summer. While I've had New Year resolutions this whole year, I have a shorter time to accomplish my summer goals. Summer goals encourage me to have more drive than New Year's goals. It also makes accomplishing New Years' Eve resolutions easier to accomplish because I get used to following through with accomplishing goals.

Whenever you set goals, it's important that you actually try to accomplish the goal instead of just wishing that it will happen.

The best things in life don't just happen without effort and time. That's the thing about self-care and wanting to do things in life. Life isn't a movie. You don't randomly get a promotion or overcome your depression. Those things take work, and even then, you might not get what you want. It is important to remember that it's okay to set a goal or expectation of yourself and fall short. At least you tried your best to make it happen.

As Brian Tracy once said, "A goal without a plan is only a dream."

In order to hold myself accountable and to help others accomplish their goals, I'm sharing mine. Here are my six summer goals for 2021.

1. Learn time management.

One of the things that I struggle with during the school year is time management. Lack of time management only leads me to get stressed out and feel overwhelmed with everything. This is why I feel like summer is the best way to get used to balancing things on a smaller scale with the summer classes I'm taking. This goal will help me to adjust and get used to the process.

2.  Wake up before 9 AM.

I'm the type of person that doesn't believe in waking up early, but I have discovered that the more adult things you're involved in, the more you'll have to wake up early. Waking up early also connects with time management because waking up earlier gives me more time.

3. Finish tasks on my to-do list.

I have all my tasks on the reminder list on my iPhone, but I struggle with checking things off and actually accomplishing them. This is why I want to work on at least completing a task or two a day.

4. Organize my room and car.

Another thing that is stressful in my life is that my room and car are not organized in the most efficient way they can be. I feel that organizing them might help me feel less stressed out because I will have a more peaceful environment.

5. Go outdoors more. 

I'm lucky to live in Florida, but I don't ever utilize what makes it so amazing - the beautiful beaches, nature trails, and unique outdoor restaurants. I also feel that with COVID, I became more of a hermit which is why I want to explore the great outdoors and see what it has to offer.

6. Find a workout that works for me.

I love working out, but one thing that I struggle with is actually starting the process of actually working out. I feel that one of the roadblocks has been not finding a workout that is best suited for me. This is why I want this summer to try all the different workouts that I can, from yoga to Crossfit.

I hope to accomplish my summer goals, but writing them down is the first step!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
