New School Year Resolutions
I have never really done new year resolutions. They usually end up forgotten by February for me. While I didn't make any new year resolutions I am making new school year resolutions. My first day of class was today (last first day of undergrad-happy or sad?) and I have set some school related goals for myself to help keep me focused!
How many times have you looked at your syllabus or planner just to see that you had a huge paper due tomorrow? Same. It's stressful and causes you to miss out on fun things like dinner with the girls in order to throw together a paper on a topic you know nothing about. My mom gave me the prettiest leather planner for Christmas and I am using it for nothing but school assignments. No clutter, No excuses!
Go to Sleep Earlier
Self explanatory. It's hard to focus in class when I was up until three am binge watching House of Cards.
Say No When I Want To
I feel like I have to do everything- every meeting, every party, every dinner, every study date. It takes a serious toll on me and causes way too many all nighters to catch up on that work I blew off. Beyonce won't show up to that party I skip (hopefully).
Say Yes When I'm Scared To
On the other hand, I want to stop being so afraid to branch out of my comfort zone. I'm resolving to join a new club or organization or try something on campus I've always wanted to do but haven't. It's good to expand your horizons!
Keep My Room and Desk Clean
I just get more done. It's a fact.
Dress Nicer for Class
So guilty of the leggings and tee shirt everyday. It's just easy. While I still have time to dress this way I know law school is different- you have to take yourself seriously! I think it will be beneficial to at least try to get used to it now. Plus, when you look good you feel good, right?
These resolutions sound pretty easy but I know they are going to be tough when I want to go to everything or stay up all night watching netflix. They will definitely be a work in progress, but I'm excited to get to it!
Do you have any new school year resolutions? I'd love to hear about them!
