Day 31: Your Summer Goals

I have a lot of goals this summer, many of which I’m already working on as part of my list. So, I decided I’d share some of them:

  • Eating healthier (which means all the fruits and veggies!)
  • Start exercising more
  • Drink more water
  • Read some books for pleasure
  • Explore Antigonish and go to the Highland Games
  • Reorganize my blog
  • Learn some more German
  • Pick my top Masters programs
  • Plan some events for the history society this year
  • Make a trip to the beach
  • Make a trip to Halifax (hopefully?)

What are some of your goals for this summer? Let me know in the comments!

Day 6: Something You’re Proud Of

There are so many things I’ve been proud of recently, but I’m only going to list a few of them here today.

First, I’m proud that I managed to survive my first year writing for the newspaper and on the executive of the history society at my university. There were quite a few late nights and a few frustrating moments, but it was all worth it. I made some friends, wrote great articles, and got kudos from multiple faculty members, which makes me believe that doing both jobs was a good choice.

I’m also proud of the fact that I pushed myself to pursue all the job interview offers that I was given in the last two months. I even made a trip to Halifax just for a three-hour interview, which still seems slightly surreal. I did end up with a summer job that will be beneficial to my future career, but I’m still glad I made myself do all the other interviews, since they taught me a lot.

I’m proud that I’ve finished my third year of university as well. This past year has really shown me what I like studying and what I really want to do as a career, since I’ve been taking mainly¬†history and political science courses. And, now there’s only one year between me and my degree, which is a fantastic feeling.

Lastly, I’m proud of how much I’ve grown as an adult the last while. All the signing of sublets, cooking, and answering emails that I’ve done the last few months have made me realize that I’m actually capable of making my own life. I know I still have tons to learn, but it’s nice to know that I’ve come leaps and bounds from when I first moved out to Banff.

What’s something that you guys have done lately that has made you feel proud of yourselves? Drop me a comment down below so I can give you a virtual high five!

Something You’re Proud Of

I actually struggled to write this post for a while, but after thinking a while I have a few things I’m proud of.

First, I’m proud of the fact I’m taking the time to be more involved on campus this year. Even just showing up to the political science mixer and an extra philosophy debate is more than what I ever did last year. I’m proud that I’m pushing my comfort zone a little bit more, and the people I’m meeting have also been fantastic.

Second, I’m proud that I’m working hard this semester to stay on top of things. I already have plans for three out of four of my essays that aren’t due until the end of November, which is way different than last year. Maybe I’m just more interested in what I’m studying, but I’m proud of the hours I’ve put into my school.

And lastly, I’m proud of myself for making it this far. Some days last year and this year have been rough, but I’m still going strong. That’s an important thing, that you pick yourself back up after a failure, and turn it into a lesson that will motivate you to keep going.

What are you guys proud of this semester, or year? Leave a comment below!
