Second Quarter Goals

I can’t believe I’m halfway done with my first term of my final year of my undergraduate degree! I’ve tried to make these goals more specific so I can measure them better. My goals for the second eight weeks of school are:

  • Stay on top of my reading assignments
  • Work 10 hours a week (on average)
  • Get academic help as soon as it’s needed
  • Don’t watch Netflix before 8PM
  • Meet up with friends
  • Make time for myself
  • Get into a routine (particularly regarding sleep)
  • Stay on top of this blog with at least one post a week
  • Be productive between classes on campus
  • Read for half an hour every other day
  • Listen to new music (two albums a week)
  • Watch movies (particularly “classics” I’ve never seen) (one every other week)
  • Hit the gym 2-3 times a week
  • Watch documentaries
  • Try one new recipe a month
  • Get into meditation, mindfulness and yoga (to help relieve anxiety)
  • Start studying for final exams about a week ahead of time
  • Apply for internships and other professional experience opportunities for next term
  • Apply for jobs in the United Kingdom (one a week)
  • Apply for graduate school programs in the United Kingdom once I get my revised transcript (one a week)
  • Only spend $20 a month on food (dining out)

Some of these are from the first quarter that I would like to stick to or try to do better. I will post and update with my successes in mid-December.
