Back To School Resolutions

Oh right...I blog. Sorryyyyy for my absence but life has been crazy busy. There is just something about the first week of class that demands you to have no free time and as many coffee dates and meetings as humanly possible. Seriously, my little and I were texting about getting lunch and she went to one place four times since classes have started...craziness!
Anyways, this hectic schedule got me thinking. Being involved is great and I totally encourage everyone to do it. I actually am working on a new outlook this year. Obviously my transition to UVA was tough and I didn't throw myself into the experience as much as I wished I had and now I am aiming to make up for lost time. 
Get involved, meet people, develop relationships, take classes you are interested in and love college. I realize that sentence sounds simple, but until you don't work on it, you really have no appreciation for how crucial those steps are.
First day of my 3rd Year!!!
yeah, roomie and I match...casual

I am planning to be busier, more active, and happier this year. I believe in New Year's Resolutions, but I also believe that resolutions are a personal thing that can come around at any time. This year I am making a couple for myself based on the academic calendar and I encourage everyone to do the same:
Sugar Snap Pearls' Resolutions:
Raise $1000 for Relay for Life
Run 2 half-marathons (messed up feet are a no-go for the full thing)
Give back to the community through service
Learn conversational Spanish
Become more fiscally responsible
Blog 4x a week...yay
Get my class reading done ahead of time
Make a firm academic/future plan
Finish decorating the apartment!!!

What are your school year resolutions?

  1. I think it's a great idea to set goals like this! I'm striving to make straight A's all year, (Much easier to do in high school than college, I'm sure;) be more outgoing, and be in the top 7 for my school's cross country team. Good luck with those half marathons!
