Resolutions Revistited

Goals are supposed to be SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and on a timetable).... so I found my New Years Resolutions posted on my blog, and I think it's about time for a check-up with 3 months left in the year...

So here were the goals... and the check-up...
  1. To not worry as much (I'm working on it, there are a lot of things that don't worry me as much but I still have a ways to go to not be such a worry wart, but it's all in the little steps)
  2. To have a schedule for going to the gym (Yeah that one fell through for Winter Semester, but I have some awesome roommates this Fall that will go with me to the gym so no more excuse... to the gym we go)
  3. To focus- on who I'm with and what I'm doing instead of planning a million things in my head (Kinda like the worrying one I'm making progress and that's what counts)
  4. To get good grades (I can happily say that heck yes that happened Winter Semester let's just see if I can keep my act together for Fall)
  5. To look for more opportunities to serve others (I'm getting better at this, and I'm finding joy in it which was the ultimate goal)
  6. To smile and laugh more often (It's coming)
  7. To climb a mountain (To be scheduled... it's going to happen)
  8. To stay organized (I'm actually getting really good at this)
  9. To be more thrifty (Thanks to one of my cousin's wife I am learning to be thrifty... it's a work in progress but hey every penny saved counts)
  10. To get a job (Done!!!!)
