Yes… I know what you’re thinking. It’s been a half a year since my last blog. I know, I know. But I’m looking back at my resolutions, and I’m thinking about what I have done. So, yeah. Here are my Resolutions, and my thoughts about them 7 months later.
Cook more meals at home. I started the year off wonderfully, actually. But as the school semester went on, I started having to deal more with crap based around school and stuff.
Spend less time online and more time studying. I actually did this. I’m happy about how I did with my school semester. I’m actually more than just happy.
Spend more time with my family. I feel like I’m still working on this. I’m not happy on how little time I do spend with them.
Enjoy life. Definitely. I made several really good friends at school. I’m still in touch with them, and I’ve been going out with my cousins. I’m super super happy!
Get at least a B- in all my classes. Remember those unreasonable expectations? Yeah… I started out the semester really really well. As the semester wore on and I still had A’s… Those expectations started to seem more reasonable! I ended my semester with A’s in ALL of my classes. So I’m extremely proud of myself, and so happy that I did THIS well my first semester back.
Blog about food. Um… yeah… This has not happened at all. I promised pork roast and lasagna… never happened. I am sorry about that.
I still have 5 months left. I start school again next month, and I feel more focused, looking towards what I want to do with my life. I cannot believe that it took four years of doing nothing to realize that it’s time to get my butt in gear and do something with my life.
Still looking forward to the rest of the year ^ ^.
Tonight, sometime around 6:30, I will have completed my first week of classes in 4 years.
While it no longer terrifies me to come here, it does terrify me that I won’t be able to keep up with the work (not a problem so far). Tuesday, because of me not watching the clock, I was late to my two morning classes.
This morning, I stretched out my snooze button until my phone quit letting me press it. (I programmed it that way, but it still sucks). I’m dealing.
In about 15 minutes, I start speech class. I mean start it. I have to give a 2-3 minute presentation on Abraham Lincoln and why he is immortalized.
I do have to say one good thing though. Well, two. All my teachers know their shit and want to see me succeed. And second, this learning community I’m in for English Writing and Speech rocks. The same 13 people in my Writing class are in my Speech class. It makes for some very interesting conversations that start in Writing, and continue until speech. And because I said I wanted snow, they’re blaming me for the cold that comes with the snow. I never said anything about the cold.
Usually I wait until the second of the year to even think of resolutions. This year, I’m trying it different. This year, I’m going to make resolutions before the new year.
My resolutions are:
Cook more meals at home. This resolution comes about mainly because of my roommate/best friend. She got tired of fast food, and the one day we were both in the kitchen trying to think of what we wanted for dinner. Today marks the second meal we’re cooking together.
Spend less time online and more time studying. This one is because the second week of the year, I start school. Again. It’s half really really exciting and half terrifying. I’ve been out of school since the spring of 2008. It’s going to be 2012. That’s 4 years.
Spend more time with my family. I’m hoping by working on Resolution 1, I’ll get this one done, too. But I’m going to make an honest try to spend more time upstairs and with my mom and sister.
Enjoy life. I finally feel like I have more confidence, more ambition to actually do things. I want to get out with friends, spend more time laughing, and feel good about myself.
Get at least a B- in all my classes. Considering its my first semester back, I’m not going to put unreasonable expectations (A) on myself.
Blog about food. I’ve been reading more blogs this year, and I want to continue that with, except I want to make my own. When I cook for Resolution 1, I plan on blogging about it, the process, the photos, and the completed product. Of course, if I ended up ruining it beyond recognition (kale chips), I will not be posting it.
Well, that’s my list of resolutions. If you want to, leave a message and tell me what yours are.
