Sophomore Year Goals: Update

As promised, I am updating my goals list so I can share my progress with all of you! If you missed my last post, I presented you with a list of my top five goals to accomplish during my sophomore year of college. I am about two and a half months in now, and thought this would be a great time to check in!

Buy a DSLR and learn how to use it.

So….I said this one would be done by October 13th, or three days ago. And I’ve run into a little bit of a roadblock with this one. I have the money set aside for it, but I want to buy it used or at a discount. I am bad at ebay, so I am instead waiting until I go home on the 24th to talk over how to go about this with my parents, because they are better at shopping than I am. But rest assured, this camera will be gotten very very soon!

Flying to Texas.

Well, there’s not much of an update for this one, as if when I do this it won’t be until summer. But with the way things are going financially I don’t see any reason why I wouldn’t be able to. Which is super exciting because I have never been to Texas! If you haven’t read my to-do list, you may not know this but I plan on running a race in every state, so my biggest challenge will be finding a good race to run while I’m there!

Run or Swim everyday.

I am ashamed. I am deeply ashamed.

Finish a blanket for Chris.

Progress! This is a marathon, not a sprint. To keep myself from getting discouraged I have been sprinkling in other projects like a baby blanket for Chris’s cousin who is expecting, and boot cuffs, which I plan on selling soon!

Perfect the handstand.

While I practiced quite often, I wasn’t seeing any progress so I decided to go a different route and start taking baby steps. I can proudly say I can to a perfect headstand, and even do fancy things with my legs in the meantime. Now I am working on my forearm stand and once I have that down I will move onto the handstand!

Post once every five days.

I am actually doing pretty well on this one (ignore last week and today.) Midterms and the stress of planning a big girl adventure to Chicago definitely had me distracted, but I think I will be able to accomplish this one no problem, with a few missed gaps here and there because life happens.

Start a YouTube Channel.

As I mentioned, I am going on a big girl adventure to Chicago this weekend, and I plan on vlogging for the first time ever. Whether or not I get the courage to post it is yet to be seen, but fingers crossed! And once I get my fancy camera I really plan on buckling down and making a youtube Channel!


So, those are my updates, sorry they aren’t terribly exciting but I am making progress! Do you have any goals that you are working on?

    This may be a a little longer then you wanted to wait but I would maybe check into some Black Friday deals? I bet you could find a good deal or at least better then the full retail price you’d get now! Just a thought 🙂

    • That is actually a really really good idea! I wish it weren’t because I am so excited to finally get my hands on my dream camera, but you are really smart. Thank you!

  • These are nice goals! I love your blog posts, I came across them on Pinterest!
    Keep up the good work! I myself have just started a blog, so wish me luck!!
    I used your blogging how-to’s to guide me through it! Thanks a lot. 🙂

    • Thank you, Desiree! You’re so kind! I am glad you were able to use my guide, that’s awesome! And I am so impressed with your site, the graphics are out of this world!
