5 Goals For 2020

It's that time again! As we wrap up another semester and wrap up another year this is when people get burnt out or motivated to change! I want to change for the better through what I've gone through this semester, both good and bad. But I am going to go into the next year being optimistic and ready for change and improvement.

1. Write my book.

If you have known me for a long time, you have known I love to write. Writing stories is more of my style than writing blogs and news-like articles, so I want to write a book. I've talked about it but I have never gotten around to doing it. But after some long self-reflection, I need to write my book. Overall, I want to accomplish something and/or create something.

2. Get strong.

I have never been much of a fitness and sports-oriented person until recently. Although I do not go as often as I should, I really do enjoy working out. But what I want to see is results. I know there is a lot of work in having a body transformation but I think it is attainable. I know it will take a lot of work but I really want to know how people work out to get toned and muscle definition.

3. Make a YouTube channel.

This is my most personal goal, you always hear about people making YouTube channels to get money or become famous. But that doesn't mean anything to me. I want to have it to look back on all the memories and see my growth.

4. Lose weight.

There's not really a set number and this is all for health reasons. You are beautiful at any size. My weight has fluctuated a lot the past two years and I have noticed when I am thinner, I sleep better, I'm happier, and most importantly, I have more energy.

5. Be positive.

This I think everyone can work on. Too often we focus on what is going wrong in our lives but not what is going great. We do not give ourselves enough credit. You are doing great!

Those are five goals I have for myself going into 2020!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
