Getting Back to Your Goals

Goals are only good when you get back to them. It’s easy to write them once on a whim and look back a few years later thinking, “Ah, remember when?” Well you’ve got to remember now if your goals are going to get you anywhere. So as I finally have a moment to sit back without a mandatory to-do list, I looked back on the goals that I set for the fall. To see the full list, you can click here. There are some goals that I met and others just didn’t fit in the cards. So I thought I’d do a little progress report. And because I’m itching with four full weeks ahead of me with nothing but my own personal to-do list, I’ll post that up tomorrow. Winter Break is too good not to write something up.

I invite you to check back up on your goals today once you have a minute. Remember, “goals are only good when you get back to them.”

1. Goal #1 was an important one—to make a new friend and stay in touch with the old. I met two amazing girls this quarter, my two lovely Littles and I couldn’t be happier to have met them through Chi Omega. These are friendships that I’ll cherish much longer than my time at UCLA.

2. Goal #3 was my internship at E! News. I had a wonderful experience there and as I finish my last week, I am so thankful for the opportunity to work with so many talented people. I loved going in to work and I especially loved getting to help out on the red carpet. I’m still indecisive about whether or not I want to pursue a career in journalism, particular in entertainment, but after this experience, I am certainly not closing the door to any potential opportunities in that realm.

3. Goal #6—to get straight A’s. I don’t want to jump the gun but I think I did it! This is especially exciting after a tough quarter last spring in Psychological Research Lab Methods. Not my cup of tea…but abnormal psychology was (A+ baby!)

4. Goal #9—take a two day vacation. It hasn’t happened yet but my gal pals and are a planning a mountain trip! I really hope it works out this winter. What’s better than a day of skiing and hot cocoa with your best friends?

5. Goal #17—to get a literary agent. I came close but not close enough. The woman I was working with was the agent for some bestselling books like Skinny Bitch and Lisa Bloom’s book, Think. I knew it would be a big shot and while I didn’t make it, I think it will be for the best. I’m keeping the faith.

Are you keeping the faith this winter? What’s on your wish list for your life this new year?

Keep shining,
