I’m excited for this semester…not so much for the homework, tests, etc., but more so for the fact of it’s yet another semester of new things. I’m not one to repeat something over and over again unless I really take to it, and thanks to college, I don’t really have to. If you put your best effort in now, once that one class that you can’t stand or just don’t seem to understand is over, you’re done with it most likely for good.
I don’t typically like to make resolutions in the New Year, knowing that I’ll probably never keep them anyways, but this year I wanted to make small ones specifically for college:
1. Actually do the readings I get assigned to do in class.
2. Stop procrastinating (because we all know we do at one point or another).
3. Strive for better, and if I fail, at least I know I failed trying.
That last one may seem cheesy, but it’s true. You don’t have to have super extravagant resolutions to succeed this year. You don’t have to aim for the absolute best of the best, but now is the time to try. 2015 brings a new year with new possibilities, dreams, and definitely responsibilities. If you set small goals for yourself, though, and work to achieve them, you’ll be happy with where you end up. This year/semester, I challenge all of you to try new things, and set new goals. Good luck to all of my fellow CCBC students this semester, make it a good one!
