Let’s talk about me here for a minute. I’m probably the laziest person I know, and somehow I still manage to get good grades. To be honest, I really don’t even know how that works. It’s always frustrated my friends and family.
I guess slacking just works for me. In the coming year, I plan to change that. I don’t want to be the smart slacker procrastinating kid. I’m gonna get my stuff together, and for me it works the best when I’m busy. So that’s what I plan to do.
How to achieve a New Year’s Resolution (that lasts the whole year):
1. Set a reasonable goal. Not something ridiculous, like being able to lift a seafaring vessel in a week and a half.
2. Take your time. Change doesn’t happen over night, even though everyone wishes it would. You wanna lose 20 pounds? Work on it, you can’t lose too quickly anyway. Instead of losing weight, make your goal to eat right or work out more. Don’t go the easy way if you really want to change yourself for the better.
3. Change is good! Sometimes, it’s even necessary. Do what makes you happy. Not what makes everyone else happy. Because you don’t need them anyway if you’re not happy.
If you really want to stick to your resolutions, you will. But it’s not easy and requires plenty of hard work. Sometimes sweat, and even occasionally tears. I believe that anyone can accomplish anything they put their mind to. So, go out and conquer.
Personally, my goals are to do homework the night before it’s due, rather than in the class period before; get a job; and take studying for tests more seriously. Oh, and publish blog posts throughout the week instead of Sunday; that’s kind of an annoying habit to me.
On a lighter note, since break has now officially started, I’ve got more time to work on things due when we get back. (And find a job.)
For your time and listening to me ramble, like always, here’s a Calvin and Hobbes comic. I felt it related to the topic of school because this is really how school feels to most students out there that take the time to memorize the random facts.
Have a great holiday season. Don’t fall on the ice. Trust me, that hurts.
