New School Year!

A new semester is upon us. I'm a Tuesday into my second week back at school (and my third week back in the country after a kickass summer in Europe) and I can hardly believe it.

[Although, considering I am sitting in a lecture about Google right now typing this should say something as to my state of mind.]

But anyway! I've set a few goals for myself this semester that I think are doable. I didn't want to be TOO ambitious because, you know, I'm busy, but here they are:

  1. Wear sunscreen every day. Seriously, guys. The liberal media has been telling me this for years. But I am totally going to do it now. I've been wearing SPF45 on my pale, pale face since I started college (three years ago!), but it is time to make a bigger commitment. Neck, chest and arms every day. I even bought the non-smelly, nice SPF70 Neutrogena kind. [Pricey, but I consider it an investment in my future.] You may balk at my pastiness, but I will be laughing at YOU when I have lovely skin at the age of 80. It's science, look it up.
  2. Schedule my priorities. I took a class over the summer that did a mini-unit on the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, and I have already forgotten six of them. BUT. One thing I do remember is this: "Schedule your priorities, don't prioritize your schedule." No more letting stuff pass by because I'm "busy" with something else. Newsflash: I am not a high-ranking official or a doctor or anything. My work can be rearranged to make way for real priorities. Which leads me to...
  3. Spend more time just doing stuff that I like. Life is short, y'allz. Last semester I had the crappiest courseload, and the misery was compounded by the fact that I never got to see my friends and just hang out. Now, I'm making time.
  4. Try stuff around town I've wanted to do but never done. Rock climbing? YES PLEASE.
  5. Dress pretty. Seriously. It makes me feel awesome. I'm aiming for dressing super-cute at LEAST 3 days a week. Because I can.
P.S. Is it cheating to say I am trying to blog again? This is exhausting.
