Starting September Off Right

Whenever a new season comes around I’m always inspired to create a new set of goals. I’m motivated to organize my life and get my gears back in full swing. I think you always have to start a season right, and for me, that’s laying out some key plans for the upcoming quarter. This summer has been an extraordinary learning experience with my first job but now it’s time to get back in the mindset of school. (Suddenly school feels like work and work seems like fun!) Yet just because I feel a little sluggish going back to school, it doesn’t mean that I’m not going to make the most of the fall season (pumpkin ice cream, yes please). Here is a list of 20 goals for the upcoming quarter—Sunny Set in action!

2. Hike to a waterfall and have a picnic at Griffith Park.

3. Make the most of every day at my E! News internship.
