Fall Semester Goals

If you've been into a Target recently you've noticed that the Back to School Section has taken over the whole store - I'm not kidding, they have dorm stuff what seems like outlining each aisle. My new roommate moved in yesterday, my school email is blowing up again, and quite frankly my planner gets boring when there's not much to put in it.

I've always heard that one of the habits of highly productive people is setting out their goals ahead of time. Its crazy to think that this year I will be entering my Junior year of college - the past two years have absolutely flown by! School starts in about a week and I figured now was as good a time as any to set out those goals.

  1. Make above an 80 in all my classes // Sounds totally reasonable right? I have this nasty habit of hitting exactly what I need to pass the class or the .2 points away (I'm retaking statistics over 2 points this semester). If I can keep above an 80 I will be a happy camper.
  2. Stand out at work // A great job to have during college is working retail, and I just love my store. I started working there back in May and this fall I really hope to stand out as an associate. No job is undignified and you never know where the opportunities will take you!
  3. Start networking // Before you know it, I will be graduating which is the scariest thought in the world right now. This semester I want to figure out just what it is that I want to do and meet professionals in my field - fingers crossed for an internship next summer.
  4. Grow PYB // I have lots of plans in store for the blog - stay tuned!
  5. Put away $400 // I told myself I would do this over the summer, and it didn't really happen. This semester I think that is totally doable. Putting it away now will make Christmas shopping so much easier come holiday time.

But you know, this has a totally valid point.

Do you have any goals for the school year? Let me know!

Always, kTm

  1. Good luck on your goals! I was just in Target yesterday, and the college stuff really has taken over! Even though I already graduated, I still love looking at all the fun stuff!
