Some Goals...

If you're wondering why I didn't do this more towards the beginning of January, I guess it'd be because I'm a procrastinator. I'm excellent at saying "Oh, I'll do that when... well, maybe after that..." So I've pretty much talked myself into waiting until basketball season ends to follow through on these goals. (And while I'm on that topic, I'm going to say that the ending of the season is bittersweet. I love basketball and I'm just recently starting to enjoy it even more. I don't want it to end but I also miss having a life and time to sleep/do homework/see friends. I'm just going to throw myself into it until then.) But, back to the goals... Once I have time again, these are a few things I hope to accomplish:
  • On Sunday, I was at the gym, taking yoga and running a bit with a friend when we got on the topic of running. Both of us agreed that we hate running since it's boring, but we also agreed that it would be good for us. I saw a blog post about the app 'Couch25K' on First Time Wife... And so, Nicole and I decided to train for a 5k together once our winter sports end... Hopefully, doing this with each other will give us some motivation and accountability (I could not think of that word to save my life and just had to google "word for someone to answer to"...). Hopefully the blog is going to give me some accountability, too. If it hits March and I haven't mentioned it again, I'm counting on my followers to remind me :p
  • And, since we're going to be running, I hope we can keep up with yoga too... I feel like I'm losing all my flexibility with basketball and I don't like it...
  This is going to be me, hopefully on the beach (:
  • And again, on the topic of exercise, I'm going to try and get back to cycling class, which I LOVE LOVE LOVE as much as someone can love exercise, when I'm not running or doing yoga... I know, this sounds really optimistic, but I think I can do it. I'm always in fantastic shape during basketball season, but by summer it turns into just okay shape. This year, I'm hoping that I'll still be in basketball season shape during summer so that I'll look amazing in that bikini (:
  • I just signed up for my junior year classes, and it's stressing me out a bit. Junior year means I'm one year closer to college; it means I'm going to be devoting a year to SAT's and hopefully early decision college apps... unfortunately, I really have no idea where I want to go or what I want to do with my life. Everyone keeps telling me that I'm smart and I'll have no problem getting into college, but that's not the problem. The problem is deciding what to do in college. Nothing really jumps out at me, and the money thing is stressful too. I'm hoping that this year I can finally decide what I want to do with my life.
 Columbia University; as of now it's my top college choice. I mean, why wouldn't it be? It's gorgeous and on Manhattan Island... Unfortunately, it's Ivy, and expensive. I know my parents will help out, but is it really worth it if I just want a Bachelor's degree in engineering? I'm trying to tell myself I should wait for grad school. But then, I have to decide where to  get my bachelor's and what to get it in. Oh, and I have to decide what to get a master's in... decisions decisions. I hate them...
  • I'm taking my first AP class this year; World History. Can't say it's too fun or interesting, but I think I'll be continuing with AP's.... the AP test is in a few months now and I'm starting to get stressed. I'm afraid that I don't remember anything from the first half of the year; so, I'm going to try and start studying next week. Yay, yay, yay, exciting right? HA.
  • Back to the college thing, I'm kind of worried about the SAT's. I know it's not until the end of next year, but I feel like my entire life depends on it. I know I shouldn't be worried since I did really well on the PSAT's but I can't help it. I'm really tempted to start studying, is it too early?


  1. can we please do cycling together?! I loved it the other day!

  2. Yeah definitely! Once basketball ends I'm all for it!
