Another Semester Resolution: New Semester New Me?

Maybe this semester I will actually get a 4.0... or at least not stay up until 2 a.m. watching Netflix.

Another Semester Resolution: New Semester New Me?
Glenn Carstens-Peters

To be honest my "senior year bucket list" for last semester didn't exactly get finished. So, since I watched Netflix and did absolutely nothing all break, I decided that this semester would be the semester, the semester that I will accomplish my goals. So what that I say this every semester? This will be the semester that I actually do something. I mean, "new semester, new me" is obviously why I am going to crush it my last semester in undergrad.

1. That 4.0

The ultimate college goal, because "pain is temporary and GPA is forever". Also, my mom told me I can do it and that she is disappointed that I haven't done it more.

2. Read sometimes.

As great as Netflix is, sometimes it's a good idea to expand your horizon with books.

3. Do a cool workout.

First of all, working out is a lot of work and I got lazy in the search for a workout that is unique.

4.Get a tattoo.

I just want one... I have put a lot of thought into it, so don't worry mom.

5. Go to a concert.

...or like 50.

6. Save money.

...I guess I can't live by the "treat yo self" philosophy.

7. Go camping.

Fires, s'mores, and stars? Doesn't get much better than that!

8. Blog more!

Blogging twice a year is a terrible habit... get ready for three times a year!!

9. Cook at home more.

Supposedly it's good for you... all I know is that I get to make a lot of pancakes.

10. Spend more time growing spiritually.

This is the one thing that tends to take a back seat when business comes to play. That is a habit I need to grow from and I truly need to take my faith and relationship with Christ more seriously.

So, these are the 10 things that I hope to accomplish by the time May 5th rolls around. Here is to one more go at the whole undergrad thing. And may the magic of "new semester, new me" bless ya girl!

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
