Today, I begin summer classes. Five for spring term. Five for summer term. But that does not mean I can't spend a little time for myself and get some summer goals checked off my list...
-- Finish Anna Karenina AS WELL AS finish the next book on my 100 Books list.
-- Read the entire book of Mormon before the first day of Fall semester.
-- Of course I want to go on dates and hang with boys, but I resolve to spend a little more time getting to know the girls in my ward. Last summer, I was in the Relief Society Presidency, so I couldn't help but learn about the girls. During this summer season, the female count is a lot lower than Fall/Winter. I have no excuse not to at least learn all the girls' names and have a few conversations with them once in a while.
-- Magnify my calling. I am the Humanitarian Service / Spiritual and Temporal Welfare council chair. There's quite a lot on my plate, and I sometimes feel a little overwhelmed, but really, the goal of my council is to help people. I hope to find service opportunities both within my ward and out in the "real world."
-- Write some more songs. I have three swimming in my head and they need to come out soon or else they never will.
-- CLEAN ALL THE THINGS. And keep things clean.
-- Play more sports. Maybe some Ultimate, volleyball, basketball. Maybe I should learn something new...
-- See Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers. Also watch three other movies that I haven't seen yet, but should see.
-- Spend some time with my old friends that live in the area but I don't see very often. There are a few friends I know from home in Minnesota, as well as some friends from Freshman year that I just don't see as often as I should.
-- Write in my journal more frequently. That way I don't get overwhelmed when I have to go back and remember things that happened like four weeks ago.
I may add things, but these are the important ones.
