Revisiting My 2018 Goals

At the end of 2017, I made a post about what my goals were for 2018. During the entirety of 2018, I never went back and read them until now. To be quite honest I had forgotten what most of them actually were, which made revisiting them kind of fun.

My first goal was to keep my grades up, or more specifically, maintain my GPA in the spring semester of 2018. Now I’m not sure whether to say I met this goal or not. On one hand, I actually ended up having to drop out of spring semester due to illness, so I didn’t receive any credits for the work I did at all. However, I did maintain my GPA for the fall semester when I went back to college. Technically I did keep my grades up, just not in the spring semester. I’m gonna call it a win, even though it is on a technicality. 🙂

My second goal was to transfer to a university and I did that! I didn’t end up at the school I thought I would go to in that post, but I did in fact transfer to a new school.

The third goal I had was to get my pharmacy technician license. I did not do this, and it is also no longer a goal of mine. I changed my major and getting a pharmacy tech license isn’t as relevant to my future as it once was.

My fourth goal was to be more involved in my community.  This year I did a few new things to be more involved like participating in the March for our Lives, and voting in my first election. My community also changed some, as I moved forty-five minutes away to go to university. I joined a few clubs/organizations at my university, one of which is a volunteer organization where we do blood pressure screenings for people dealing with homelessness and poverty.

The last goal I made was to continue blogging, and I think this post is proof that I did in fact do that. I would like to blog more in 2019. This year was so crazy for me that my blogging slowed down towards the end of the year, but I would like to post more often in the future.

What goals did you have for 2018? Were you able to accomplish them? Let me know in the comments! I’d also love to hear that your goals are for 2019. Look for a post of my 2019 goals coming soon!

Goals for 2018

Last year I made some goals for 2017, and I thought I would do it again this year! I have gone back to that post many times though out this year, and it has motivated me to continue to keep on track with my goals. Here are five goals I have for 2018:

  1. Keep My Grades Up

This past semester was my first semester in college, and I’ve been working incredibly hard. Luckily, that hard work has payed off and I finished the semester strong. My goal for the spring semester is to maintain my GPA. Being able to do well in school, after having so much trouble with school due to my health for the past five-ish years feels amazing. I’m definitely an overachiever and so getting good grades feels incredibly rewarding!

2. Transfer Colleges

I’m currently living at home and going to community college, but I’m hoping to transfer to a University in the Fall 2018 semester. This goal kinda ties in with goal #1. I need to get good grades and work on my application in order to get into my dream school. I have good back-up options, since the University I want to go to is pretty hard to get into (my older sister was rejected), but I’m hoping my grades will be good enough for me to get accepted!

3. Get my Pharmacy Tech License

Currently I’m planning on going into the medical field, and I want to obtain a Pharmacy Tech license in order to get some experience in the field. I also think this will look good on my college applications. I’ve never had a job (due to my age and health), so I think it’d be super rewarding if I was able to get my license while working. I’m hoping to do on the job training at a local pharmacy that lets you work while you train.

4. Be more involved in my community

I think activism and volunteering are so so important, especially right now. I’m applying to volunteer for a political  campaign, and to volunteer at my local hospital. Between both of these things, and opportunities at church, I’m hoping to be more involved in my community.

5. Continue Blogging!

I’ve been blogging for a year now, and I can’t wait to blog more. It’s been difficult to keep up the blogging with school, but I’ve still been able to post some. I’m going to try and make time to read more of the blogs I follow on a regular basis, and post more.

 

What are your goals for 2018? What do you hope happens for you in 2018? I hope everyone is enjoying celebrating the Holidays, and reflecting on the past year!

Lots of Love,
