My life, described in lists of seven.
*Items in lists appear in no particular order. Usually.
WHY THIS BLOG EXISTS
1. I am bored and have run out of other ways to pass the time.
2. Blogs can be fun and distracting.
3. I enjoy making lists because I am somewhat obsessive-compulsive. Lists add structure and order to my life.
4. I’m allowed to do whatever the hell I want, and this is what I want to do.
5. It’s a creative outlet?
6. It will be a challenge, and I’m up for it.
7. Seven is my lucky number.
Stop dwelling over boys, in all senses. My best friend is really a good guy underneath it all, and eventually someone special will come along who appreciates who I am.LOL WELL THIS IS HILARIOUS. My best friend and I had a bit of a falling out because “underneath it all” he was a pretty shitty person and cared way too much about himself to see the pain he was causing me. But. We’ve reconciled and now we’re okay again. And I never once stopped caring about him. But yeah, dwelling on boys is kind of my thing now. Hopefully something exciting happens in 2013, though.
Continue to do well in school, raise my GPA, and challenge myself academically.Check and check. My GPA is *thiiiis* close to hitting magna cum laude for graduation, but I’m going to have to get a 4.0 this semester to get there.
Be the best President to my Chi Omega chapter that they’ve ever had. HOOT!Pretty sure I wasn’t the best, but I definitely wasn’t the worst. That was quite a year of learning and experiencing. If I did nothing else, I helped recruit our best pledge class ever and helped make the Personnel Board approachable and useful.
Be less dramatic about things that are out of my control. If someone doesn’t care enough to keep me in their life, I have no reason to keep them in mine.See item 1 of this list. Still really dramatic about things out of my control, but I’m learning. And sometimes, just sometimes, people care about you even when you don’t think they do.
Continue to journal. And read books for pleasure. And do artistic things.I’ve gotten lazy about journaling, and I hate that. I’ve started reading books for pleasure again, now that I have the time. I should work on the artistic side.
Waste less time on the internet. (Sorry, tumblr.) I think even at my busiest, I still wasted too much time on the internet. But I hope that changes.
Remember that I’m smart and beautiful and that I can achieve anything if I am determined.Sometimes I don’t believe it, but I know it’s true. This past year was a testament to how strong I really am. I’ve survived the worst semesters of my life; I think I can handle whatever gets thrown at me now.
Get me a boyfriend. That one guy on my mind would be nice :)That didn’t happen, and the other one I had my eye on doesn’t seem to be a possibility for next semester either. But that’s okay.
Continue to do well in school - and raise my GPA so Latin Honors are a possibility. Brought up my GPA during the spring semester, but I still don’t know my grades from this fall.
Have an amazing and enriching experience abroad in France.I’d say that was a success.
Stop dwelling on the past, thinking about missed chances, and wishing things were different. Take advantage of the opportunities I have in the present. I’ve been working on this one, and I think I’ve come a long way. Much more emotionally mature, even despite a whole bunch of bullshit that happened. Or because of it?
Continue to keep a journal and this tumblr. Journal = absolutely. This tumblr = slightly less. But my other tumblr = yes.
Get closer to the people I love, and don’t forget to remind them how much they mean to me. Living abroad has definitely helped me hold on to the important relationships and let the other ones go. I know who cares about me, and that’s what I need to remember.
Remember that I’m smart and beautiful and that I can achieve anything if I am determined. Trying my best!
