First of all, if you catch me Phrynne Fisher-ing myself into crime scenes, I don’t want anybody to be surprised, because in the next decade or so I’ll probably do some even more stupid things.
I’m kidding-though everybody in that show’s an icon.
That’s beside the point; though, because it’s Twenty-Twenty, and your girl has some resolutions.
Now, if you read my last post, you’ll know that this is my year of healing. Which is dramatic, but again, if you want to get some context for this years goals-you can check it out.
I recently worked on my list, and I’ve finally concluded that it’s actually a mighty fine resolution look, considering I’ve broken it down into bite sizes. Confused? So was I going into it, and then I came up with this.
So, I broke my resolutions into the following:
Events (I’m aware those two are redundant, but let’s just roll with it)
Spiritual Growth (not shown)
Now for Main Skills, I put Drawing, and Voice Acting. Voice acting is still something I find fascinating, and if nothing else, I’d love to develop a more confident voice that can hook someone into a conversation-because as it stands I’d do a great job at being a Nap Time Professor.
Drawing is something I’ve always enjoyed, and after Inktober, and getting to talk more about art with a good friend of mine, I find myself wanting to develop this skill I have (If this was the Sims I’d be level one).
So, for each of these, I put how I’m going to achieve these goals-such as drawing at least once and week, and applying for VA rolls to get my voice more…I don’t know words right now, but you know, that word that I’m thinking.
So when it came to school, I’m in my Senior Year-The crunch time is real, my dudes.
So is the lack of sleep. There’s no reason for that, though, I just don’t like sleeping.
I’m rambling. Ultimately, my goals are to complete two local community college classes (It’d be more but this is a self-funded endeavor, and making just a few dollars over minimum wage doesn’t necessarily cover the classes).
I also intend to graduate (being Homeschooled you have to really work for it and apply yourself-I’m the first Homeschooler to graduate in my family, so I’m really treading the way for my younger brother. My point is nobody has any idea on what we’re doing).
Getting into college, as well as passing the SATs are two major things. I even put my ideal scores for the SATs. I’d like to get higher, and ultimately, I’m aiming for hire, but that’s my minimum score. Essentially the entire point with SATs is, I need extra effort for math, and recently I’ve finally relented on the idea that I maybe sorta definitely need help because something is wrong if no matter how hard I study, I don’t understand math. That being said, Third times a charm, and I’m very prepared this time around. (I’d say more on the college front, but dude, that’s self-explanatory, college is my ultimate goal).
I’m combining the two because I was redundant and didn’t realize it until after I finished my list, and was like “Well sugar cookie it, I know what I mean”.
I can assure you in five months’ time, I probably won’t remember why I was so redundant and will think too hard on absolutely nothing.
The events though
Going to a Concert…specifically NeedtoBreathe.
My poor friends had to read my breakdown about not being able to see the band IRL last night in our group chat. I don’t know how they can stand me sometimes.
Go on a missions trip-I’m already signed up for one in June, it’s not out of states, but you know what, I’m a firm believer that missions start at home.
Going on a hike-where I’m aiming to go to college, they are surrounded by mountains, and when I was younger, I loved hiking. I still love it to this day, and it’s honestly something I’d love to do, even just in the mountains near us.
Have a graduation dinner-I don’t want to walk across a stage or do a big party (those are actually options even if I am homeschooled), I just want a small dinner with those I’m close with to celebrate the fact that I finally stinking made it.
Go to Comicon-I don’t know, I just want the experience.
Apply for Jobs near college-I’m broke, I don’t know how to explain why I need to get a job.
Save 2,000 (Total) Whether I burn it on classes or not, that’s the goal
Find the Best Credit card- I know essentially credit cards are bad, but I’ve been doing research and talking with other people, and I’ve found it might help to raise my credit if I can keep up with it. I know that student credit cards have great benefits, and I know I can manage one, I just want to make sure I find the best one for me, for when I turn eighteen.
Learn about Investing- I may be slightly money-hungry, but I really want to learn about investing. If I can invest properly, I might be able to help build my income and work on self-sustainability.
Find a Side Hustle-I have my blog, but it doesn’t do too much; though I know there’s something out there that I can do that can make a little bit of cash on the side of my job.
Finish Writing First book (Let’s not talk about the fact this has been my goal for five years)
Edit First Book-Yes, this has also been on my resolution list for five years.
I know, it hurts me too.
I want to know
What are y’all’s resolutions, and I’m serious, I’d love to know! I always find this time of the year to be so exciting-new beginnings excites me, and I think this year is going to be a great year for a lot of people.
I’ve decided to make a separate post of Spiritual resolutions, because this one is pretty long, and I know I’ll probably get pretty raw about some of my recent struggles, SO
I can’t wait to see you then, and again, let me know-what’re your resolutions? Are you looking forward to this year? Do you have any big events? My brother’s biggest event is he’s getting his learners permit in another month (they grow up so fast).
