New Years Goals

Be more spontaneous: I've talked about this in the past, but I'd like to be push my comfort levels 
and be more spontaneous and fearless when it comes to trying new things in the city or college. Sometimes, I get too caught up in sticking with schedules and routines; I inevitably end up getting stuck in little ruts. I think it's time for me to be more open to the little surprises each day brings us. Nine times out of ten a spontaneous little excursion in the city or event on campus turns out to be an amazing memory. 

Drink more water: I like drinking water, but I could definitely bump up my water intake.
I think it would definitely help my skin, energy, and overall health. With fancy filtered water
fountains all over campus, there's no excuse not to drink more water. 

Travel someplace new: Living in the city has been better than I ever imagined. I am constantly inspired by the new people, places, and things I get to meet daily. I've definitely developed
major wanderlust and am constantly dreaming about new places to see (perhaps fueled a bit by
my Pinterest too). I'm also constantly in awe all of the different places all of my fellow friends and peers come from too. India, New York, Indonesia, Canada, California, Maine, Italy... the list goes on. I love hearing about the places my friends have grown up and traveled to themselves. 
I'm dying to go someplace new this year!

Keep up my grades: This semester I made the Dean's List- which I am still very shocked about. 
It certainly wasn't easy (remember that 17 I got?), but all that handwork and perseverance definitely
paid off in the end. Next semester, it would be great to make Dean's List again!

Read more for pleasure: It's no secret that I love reading. Unfortunately, I usually don't have the time to read during the school year. With a little bit of a more open schedule this semester, I'd like to set aside time committed solely to reading for pleasure, even if it's thirty minutes three times week. I'm also pretty partial to biographies and anything related to British history, but I'd like to read more classics from authors like Dickens, Orwell, and Hemingway. 

What are your goals for 2014?
