2nd Term Goals! :)

*Welcome to my blog if you're visiting from A Bowl Full of Lemons: One Project at a Time! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my post!*

Long time no post, right? Sorry about that! In my previous post, I did mention that I had midterms, so I spent most of my time studying. After that, I got a week off during which I had to go somewhere with my family & couldn't post!

Today (Oct 20) is the last day of my 1st term vacation & looking back on the previous term, I realized that there are quite a few things that I need to change for the upcoming one. So, I decided to make a list of goals!

1. Managing time wisely:
This was something that I used to be good at - managing multiple activities and always being on top of my work was something that I was proud of. However, the past term, the work took over me and that needs to be changed.

2. Exercising regularly:
"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." - This is exactly what's happening & it definitely needs to change!

3. Practicing violin regularly:
This is something that I have been doing but I need to practice even more! After all, practice makes perfect!

4. Study for the SAT:
Even though I live in India, I want to try applying for colleges in the USA which means I need to take the SAT. It's something I haven't started studying for and I need to now! If you have any tips, leave them in a comment below!

5. Writing in my planner - DAILY:
I write in my planner on a regular basis but not regularly. I keep track of tests & due dates mentally, but I think jotting them down is a lot better!

6. Re-organizing my life:
This is probably the biggest goal that I have and if I accomplish all the above (especially #1), this will be off the list too. Being organized is what gets makes me a good student! The past term, the workload has been a little too much for me to handle but I'm ready to overcome it the next one!

7. Relaxing, but not for too long:
Due to school & schoolwork, I don't have a lot of free time but when I do I've wasted most of it instead of utilizing it wisely - I need to relax of course but not for too long! 

8. Post more frequently:
Last, but not least, a blog-related goal! I love blogging & I really enjoy it! Helping even a single person organize their life a little makes me feel really happy! However, school really does eat up my time & this term, I'm not going to let it to! I can't make any promises but I will do my best to post at least once a week! If you have any requests, tell me so in a comment! I will do my best to do them!

Those are my 8 goals for the second term! I decided to share them with you, I think it'll keep me motivate me a little more to achieve them! I will most probably be doing update posts related to these goals but we'll see how things turn out! Thanks a TON for reading this post! :)
