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:
- 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.
- 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...
- 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.
- Try stuff around town I've wanted to do but never done. Rock climbing? YES PLEASE.
- Dress pretty. Seriously. It makes me feel awesome. I'm aiming for dressing super-cute at LEAST 3 days a week. Because I can.
