9 goals in my life that i am determined to accomplish

Everyone should have a bucket list full of goals and ideas that they want to accomplish. Here's mine.

9 goals in my life that i am determined to accomplish
Mac Veh

Having goals is good. What people don't normally do is follow through with the goals they set for themselves. Some goals are easy, but when you approach the more difficult goals on your bucket list, you often think, "Can I even do this?" You question whether or not you have the time to do it or even the capability. Achieving goals you set for yourself may not be easy, but it's so worth it in the long run. While I've set many goals for myself throughout my life, there are nine things I want to do with my life.

1. Graduate college

This is the one thing that I am currently the closest to, and it still seems so far away. I'm going into my second year of college and I still feel like I'm so young. I will (hopefully) be graduating on time while studying two majors and a potential minor. Finishing college has always been a goal of mine and I'm so happy that I'm doing it at one of my favorite schools! Go Green!

2. Attend law school

I've wanted to attend law school since my senior year of high school. Going to law school is my current plan and goal after finishing my undergrad. I will hopefully attend one of my top choices, but honestly, I have no idea what's going to happen.

3. Make an impact

It doesn't have to be a major thing, but I want to impact someone's life so much that I'm remembered for doing just that. Maybe it will be someone I help as a lawyer, or as a humanitarian or something I don't even know yet. All I know is that I want to do something that makes someone else's life better, and then it will make mine better as well.

4. Finish a journal

Journalling is so good for mental health and just for every type of person. It's a way to convey your feelings away from judgment and you get to decide who you show your feelings and emotions to. Maybe it will just be for yourself. Maybe your writing will be shared with your best friend. The point is, your journal is yours and that's why the idea makes me want to do it and see where it goes.

5. Get married

Having a family is seriously one of my ultimate life goals. Ideally, I want to meet my future wife while in law school, but if life has taught me anything, it's that you can't control every aspect of your life. I guess it's just one of those moments that something like fate or destiny takes control of for you. Only time will tell!

6. Move to the East Coast

I have wanted to live by the water my entire life. It took me a while to decide what type of water it would be, whether it's the west or east coast, or even the Great Lakes. I finally chose the East Coast because it's truly one of the coolest places in the country. I hope (keyword, hope) to find myself living somewhere like Boston or Providence, but like I said before, there's no way of telling where I'll end up.

7. Become a politician

After establishing a (hopefully) successful career as a lawyer, I want to enter the political field. I love politics and have always loved discussing all issues pertaining to politics, both civil and controversial. Being in the political realm would be an endgame goal because it's something I've always thought would be the end of my career.

8. Travel the world

I love international affairs and photography, so working in international politics could open the world up for me. There are places I've always wanted to travel to, like the Middle East, Oceania and a large portion of Africa. I'd love to be able to take a year or more to travel the world and learn so much about so many different cultures.

9. Be happy with my life

No matter what happens in my life, I just want to be happy. I'm someone who believes that everything happens for a reason, so if I don't get into my dream law school or I end up living somewhere else, I just want to be happy with whatever I have. I hope other people feel the same way too.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
