Today was my last first day of school as a student..Summer is over, and I was oh-so-not ready to go back to classes..paperwork..stress..
One of my goals for this year is to cut out avoidable, self-induced stress. Really, it’s ridiculous how bad at staying on top of things I am sometimes.
I also want to get healthy. Eat my fruits and veggies, work out, get lots of sleep..
Staying connected with friends I don’t see everyday was something I failed at after living off-campus last year. Gotta work on that.
I don’t want to look back on my college experience years from now and have any regrets. Sometimes I put too much pressure on myself to be perfect. Sometimes I am just not a nice person. There are a couple of people in my life, I just can’t look at them without thinking an “uncharitable” thought, as Anne of Green Gables would say. I really want to keep everything in perspective. I need to pray. A lot. About all of this.
I am just in this very reflective mood tonight, which is good because goodness knows I have a lot of reflecting and self-evaluating coming up in the next few months..We’ll check back in at Christmas and see how my goals panned out.
Did I say that I want to make straight A’s? Because I do. Did I mention the whole perfectionist thing?
I think the next few posts will be recaps of the moderately interesting things I did over the summer. There will not be many, as my summer was not very exciting, but I’ll see what I can come up with..
