String Project Week 13 Goal
Week 12 goal (5/26 - 6/01)
SUPER CHALLENGE SUCCEEDED! -Finish my schoolwork before 10:30PM (orange string) -Get my daily night routine done by 8:30PM (green string) -Try to sleep at 11:45PM (brown string) - Plan a “to-do” list everyday (black string)
Last week’s SUPER CHALLENGE definitely kept me productive! I’ve turned in all of my extra financial aid documents and have finally talked to my academic advisor. Most people have told me that it’s quite difficult to change your major when you’re in college, but since I’ve met all of my requirements, my advisor had signed the form. Now, all I have to do is turn it in and I’ll no longer be a Psych major. I’d be pursuing business. The only question is - is this what I really want to do?
My psych professor sent me an email last week, praising me for my excellence in his class - scoring a 100% final and an A+ grade. Pysch 1A was my first psych class ever, and it was indeed fun and eye-opening. I didn’t feel like I was studying but rather feeding my own curiosity about human minds and behaviors.
It was also last week that I met with my university’s nutritionist. Since this service was pre-charged in my tuition, I thought I’d put it to good use. I didn’t have any problems that I wanted to address or get help on. I just wanted to meet with a nutritionist to gain some free knowledge about adapting a healthier lifestyle. After talking to her for a good hour, she suggested me to consider being a Health major since I seemed so high-energy and interested in it. Truth is, I have. For the past few months, after getting more into fitness, I have thought about how awesome it would be to be a dietician/nutritionist and help people make better choices about their eating habits.
And there’s Business - what my parents have urged me to do since applying for colleges. At first, I couldn’t see myself in this field at all because I thought I’d have to be clever and calculative. However, after talking to my sister about her experiences with being an HR, I thought to myself, “Hey, I could see myself having the same career and doing a pretty darn good job at it!”
Long story short. I love to help people and get involved with social work, but I don’t know if that’s what I want to do for a living. I don’t know if I’ll be dedicated enough to pursue a Master’s degree, knowing the job outlook might not be favorable. I’m also interested in health and wellness, but that’s totally new to me and I don’t have much information on it. On the other hand, I could see myself utilizing many of my skills in the business world, and that could allow me to have a stable occupation. Though, I question whether that would fulfill my life’s purpose.
I’m just all over the place lol. I want to do too many things, and I just can’t find what to focus on.
One of my definite goal is to graduate college in 4-5 years, get a decent job, and move out on my own by the time I’m 24. I
want to am going to make this happen, one way or another. I do see myself pursuing a higher education afterward, but that’s a plan in the far future; right now, I’m not interested.
HMMM, I understand that being confused is part of the college experience. I’m lost, but I’m not worried. I know my future will be bright if I’m willing to work hard! I’m going to the library today to do more research. I’m going to plan my schedule for next semester, and I’m going to make sure that I like the majority of the courses. I’m taking baby steps, but I’ll get there!
Last week was all about me reviewing my life - my past, my present, and my future. I wasn’t quite physically productive, but I was certainly mentally so!
For week 13 goal (6/02 - 6/08), represented by mustard colored string, I will:
-Eat my meals in 3-4 hours intervals
A new month, a new goal focus. &This time, it’s back to fitness and health, YAY! :D I’ve been eating constantly throughout the day. I’d get up for my breakfast; then, after an hour or so, join my family for our breakfast. Afterward, I’d snack until I eat my lunch; then, join my family to eat our lunch. You get the concept. Basically, I’m just eating because I feel like it’s “time” to eat or because there’s food & company. I want to break that habit this week. I only want to eat when I’m HUNGRY. So I’m going by my own time; I’ll eat breakfast whenever I wake up. Then, for 3-4 hour, I’m going to keep myself busy until I feel hungry again. I want to listen to my body, not my crazy cravings and usual snacking after every 15 minutes! :3
