My plans for the future.
word count: 626

To begin with my main resolution is to excel more in college. Previously I was not fully committed to my school work. I let other things get in the way of better grades; particularly video games. Part of my plan to achieve my scholastic goal is to devote the time I use to play games for studying. Likewise I will try to sacrifice my leisure time and study then as well. I will also make sure I don't burn myself out. I'll pay more attention in class and always take notes even when I look around and see no one else is. Another school related goal I have is to eventually take on three classes as I have only ever had two classes at a time.

A second goal is to get out of my shell and socialize more. The primary venue will most likely be in school. I've been going to college for a long period and I haven't made any friends in all that time. I also want to get involved in more church events and activities. I've always been a shy person but that is no excuse. In order to accomplish this I will simply have to suck it up and come out cold turkey. The real situation with my socializing is that once I've started conversation and broken the ice, it's easy to talk. I also plan to verbally interact with my best friend more.

My third goal is to be a better steward with my money. By this I mean making wiser choices particularly with saving. I will not waste it on fast food, Starbucks and video game rentals. I also want to be a good steward by faithfully giving to good causes like church and my favorite Christian radio station KSOS. This resolution is the most pressing because the programs on it are purely listener supported and they are in a deficit. One final thing that would be good is to spend money on others. This goal will be the easiest to keep up on for me.

My next thing I want to do is to be faithful to go on WDC for at least thirty minutes to an hour every day or so when school starts up. I’ll have to keep up with my studying to do this. I also have long term WDC plans as well. I want to make sure I keep up with my Anniversary Reviews and make the minimum of fifteen a month but hopefully more. I’ll do this by simply doing one or two reviews everyday. I want to do wore writing too. Recently I've just been reviewing. This time around I plan to enter into more contests that will incur me to write. I’ll write with less or no mistakes by re-reading my material-something I haven’t done much of. Another WDC plan is to put more variety into my portfolio- namely things such as poetry, fantasy short stories, sci-fi short stories, a personal journal, comedy pieces, essays of various topics , and screenplays.

There also simple goals I’m interested in. I want to go to the gym regularly instead every so often. Along with that I’ll push myself harder while working out; especially on my cardiovascular (running/walking) exercises. To touch up on a previous point of resolution, I want to get to know some people in the gym too. I want to keep up with house work and not procrastinate which usually leads to total neglect of chores. Finally I will have a more positive outlook on life, not focus on my anxiety problem, to be a good Christian witness to my cousin who recently moved in with my family, and lastly to just enjoy all of my material and social blessings and to be thankful for them.
