Reflect {2013}

Sunday, December 29, 2013


Last year I wrote 13 goals for 2013. I must admit some of them were just plain weird and unattainable, but some of them were cool. Here's a recap of how I did (See this post for original goals A New Year):
My list of 13-

1. Act in a play outside of school (Anna Carlson, you catching my vibe?)
Did not happen
2. Figure out the city bus system, so I'm not dependent on a car (actually, van).
Did not happen in MPLS. However, I am a pro at the NYC public transportation system. 
3. Win a College scholarship, any college scholarship-- I need some scholarships.
I won one scholarship for $1000. After I finish my gap year I will earn $5,500 from Americorps. Boom!
4. Read a book each month (yeah, I don't have much time on my hands.)
Check.
5. Grow as writer, too bad I don't know what that will look like other than practice, practice, practice.
I continue to write for Student paths and I continue to blog. This goal is a little hard to measure, but I would say I have grown.
6. Become a softball star! SO EXCITED for softball to start again
I was captain of the Hope softball team. Saying I was a softball star is a stretch though. A big stretch.
7. Go somewhere scary with Auryanna via roadtrip.
No. Boo. However, we did a lot of other strange things this year. 
8. Go sugar-free for 6 weeks (I'm on day 2)
I did it. I think I'll do this one again for 2014 and this time I'll reflect more on it.
9. Watch Alandra, Lindsay, Carissa, and Anna K become Basketball stars in college! (Especially Alandra)
Umm. Kind of? Not really though.
10. Don't cut my hair. Trims are okay.
Check. 
I added bangs to my look
11. Graduate. Simple enough, then go to college.
I graduated. Taking a year of service has been one of the best decisions I have made.
12. Go to the Dominican Republic for a mission trip. Would you like to support this? Find out more information? Click here
Check! I raised more than enough money for this trip as well. Check out these pictures from the DR.
13. I want to volunteer with this ministry more
I haven't been able to volunteer with Tapestry due to living in a different state and a busy senior year, but I continue to support them financially and by word of mouth. 


Okay, those goals were a bit weird. Here's to better goals for 2014! :)

  1. Nice. I think I completed about half of my goals.
