Junior year of college semester goals - 15 goals for the 15 weeks in the semester! Come read and follow along with my progress.

Fall is officially here! In some places the weather is starting to cool down, leaves are changing colors, Starbucks is serving Pumpkin Spice Lattes again, and it’s nearly time to wear scarves and eat turkey. However, where I live in Southern California it is hotter than it has been all Summer with temperatures in the 100’s all this week… oh well.

Despite what it may say outside, it is still the beginning of the fall semester of my Junior year of college. This is my 3rd year in college and my 3rd year (6th semester) sharing my semester goals tips with all of you. It’s crazy looking back at all my goals from previous semesters and seeing the progress I have made.

Before I starting doing this I was never one for making goals, or sharing my goals or progress with others. Since doing this I have discovered that sharing my goals with the world is a great way to keep myself accountable and cause change in my life.

Since my semester consists of 15 weeks of classes I like to set 15 goals and follow up on them by sharing my results after the semester is over. Ready to see what I have in store for this semester? Here are my goals for this semester:

  1. Get all A’s and B’s in my classes.
  2. Not miss any Her Campus deadlines.
  3. Spend 15 minutes each day stretching or doing yoga.
  4. Eat out no more than 3 times a week.
  5. Spend more time with my roommates and friends.
  6. Get used to wearing glasses.
  7. Learn to say “no” and stop signing up for things.
  8. Create, and stick to, a food budget.
  9. Celebrate my 1 year anniversary with my boyfriend with a nice date.
  10. Make my bed every morning.
  11. Clean my room at least once a week.
  12. Reach my steps goal on my phone 5 times a week.
  13. Use my crock pot at least 3 times.
  14. Post once a week on Dani Dearest.
  15. Save 10% of all paychecks.

    Hey Dani! These are great goals. I wish you the best of luck in achieving them. It’s very hot here in Florida, too, but I’m still enjoying a pumpkin spice latte 🙂

    Getting used to wearing glasses is the first step. The second step is getting comfortable leaning forward without the irrational fear that they’ll come flying off!

    Good luck!

    Best of luck to you on your goals! Learning to say no and not signing up for everything was my biggest struggle–there were so many things I wanted to do!!

    I had a coworker who says that geniuses don’t make their beds. I tried making mine every morning for a while, but I always ended up unmaking it before bed time anyway. That being said, I think it helps some people feel like their room is cleaner, so if it works for you that’s great. Good luck!

    Really loved this post! Congrats on the upcoming anniversary. I’m also thinking about doing more of yoga and basically going back to exercising this month. And totally with you on the whole cleaning that room thing. Never got around to it until now! #procrastination
    I adore your blog, Dani. I’d love if we can follow each other on Bloglovin maybe? Do let me know. Have a good weekend! x
