5 Goals for my Senior Year of College!

I honestly feel like college has been the fastest part of my life; it truly feels like I was just getting ready for my freshman year. Time really does fly by when you're busy and having fun! There's been so much that I've learned throughout my time in college, and it's crazy that I only have one year left. I really want to make it a great year, since it's probably going to be my last year in school for a little while (WHAT?!). I've been thinking about going to law school for the last year or so, but I want to take at least year off in order to work and save up. It'll also be nice to take a break!

To make sure I have a good year, though, I've set some goals for myself so I can stay on track and (hopefully) remain motivated for the year. I want to finish college on a strong note and, of course, get good grades to get into law school! Here they are:

I'm going to be very busy this year because I'll have two part time jobs, a full schedule of classes, and my blog and YouTube channel to keep up on. Keeping on top of my school work is going to be key for my success, and to help with that, I plan on utilizing my bullet journal a lot. I'll be sharing my school spreads with you guys so you can see how I stay organized and motivated with it! I'm a little worried about how busy I'll be, and I hope I'll be able to balance all of it. Last year was crazy enough with one part time job, and this year I have my senior project, so we'll see how it goes!

This is obvious, because of course everyone wants to get good grades, but I want it to be one of my main focuses for this year. Like I said, I want to end college on a strong note, so my grades are a huge part of that. My senior project will take place during winter quarter, and I want to make sure I get a good grade in the class that it takes place in, because it'll be something that I can put on my resume!

Because I'm not busy enough (ha ha), I want to get even more involved in the clubs I'm in. I joined a pre-law professional frat last year, so I really want meet people in there and take on some leadership roles! I also really want to have a leadership role in my senior project (it's a group project), so I can put that on my resume! I had never really had a leadership role until last year, when I was on the leadership team for a volunteer club, and I actually really liked having the responsibility! I'm also just super excited for the project, so I want to be as involved as possible.

I quickly learned in college how important self-care is that. I'm an anxious person, and when I don't get enough sleep, ignore my body when it's telling myself to slow down, and not give myself a mental break every now and then, it doesn't bode well. I end up getting a lot of panic attacks, and feeling super overwhelmed, so I want to focus on not doing that this year, especially since I'll be so busy. It'll be easy to fall into the trap of not taking care of myself, so I'm going to make it a priority early on. A huge part of that is getting enough sleep, working out, and eating right, so those are all things I'll be focusing on!

I've really been trying to do that this summer, and my passion for both of them have been renewed. It wasn't that I was getting bored with them or anything, I just got so busy and both definitely got put on the back burner. I want to continue to make them a priority, too, because I want them to be a big part of my future. I love being creative and my blog and YouTube channel are both huge outlets for that. They allow me to de-stress from school and work, so I want to make sure I give my time to focus on them!

Alright, well those are five goals I have for my senior year of college! I have more, but these are the five greatest things I want to focus on this year. I'm really hoping I'll be able to, and I'll keep you updated on how I'm doing, and how I'm achieving my goals!

What are your goals for the school year?

Thank you so much for reading, and have a wonderful day! :)
