I've been doing a lot of thinking lately and I came to a simple conclusion:
I'm doing fairly good at life, but I could be doing MUCH better.
So I'm going to do just that.
I am going to try to become the best that I can be.
And you are going to watch me on my journey.
Every week (on Sunday or Monday) I will post 2 or so goals on here (I will also post them in my "Life" section).
Then, the next week, I will share how I did. Some goals I may feel good about and replace them with a new one. Others, I will keep around for longer to solidify. And, sadly, I know that I will undoubtedly fail at some. Those will stay on until I can put a pretty little star next to them on my imaginary Kindergarten-esque chart. Or maybe I will actually make one of those. I like star stickers. What can I say? I'm a kid sometimes.
Here are this weeks goals:
1) Don't get on the internet until after 6:00 at night (I can check my e-mail once in the morning and get online for my online courses, obviously. But no blogger, facebook, youtube, surfing, etc.). This will be a hard one for me. I just feel that I'm wasting too much time during the day on the web. I'll be working on a homework assignment, get bored, and allow myself to read 2 blogs or spend 5 minutes on facebook. These may be short breaks, but they add up. And I've gotten to the point where I use the "break" excuse a lot. Too much. So no more of that. It's over. If I absolutely need a break, I can stretch or do some small exercise to get myself rejuvenated. Much better use of my time.
2) Pray ON MY KNEES in both personal and couple prayer. I've gotten way too lax about this. This is something I've never been the greatest at, but I have had times where I've been good about it. But now...not so much. And I wanna change that.
Well, those are this week's goals. Wish me luck!
P.S. -- My camera broke. Yes...you heard, er, read that right. My brand new camera from Christmas broke. And it wasn't my fault. I don't even know HOW it happened. I had it out and it was fine. I put it in its case and set it down on the desk. When I took it out, it had a crack in it. Now when I turn it on, the whole screen is weird and doesn't show anything it's pointed at. What the? Pray that they will fix it for me! I need my camera. Poor little baby...
