Started From The Bottom: My Summer 2013 Goals

Since I have returned home for summer break, I have really been struggling internally. I haven't had a clear focus on what I want to do with myself this summer and not having a clear plan bothers me. I thought I would be able to go with the flow and let things happen as they may, but something tells me that won't reap the results that I want. So, I'm starting from scratch, from the bare bottom. I'm going back to using the most simple method that I was taught as a child from my mom, which is making a goals list. Typically I would just jot this down in my phone or on a stickies note on my Mac, but I thought I would share this with you. Hopefully my foggy start will help us both get a clear direction for the rest of the summer.

  • Quit working at Bath and Body Works
  • Find a higher paying position
  • Spend quality time with my friends
  • Visit my boyfriend in Philadelphia
  • Go to Puerto Rico!
  • Move in with my dad in DC
  • Apply for more scholarships!
  • Visit NYC, for real this time
  • Go to Kings Dominion
  • Start a Youtube channel, perhaps
  • Convince my mom to let me move off campus*

This list is totally spontaneous. I feel it's better to write goal lists this way because it typically results in more honest, candid answers. So that's it for now! If I think of any other goals I want to complete I will add them and as I accomplish these goals I will cross them off. Feel free to start your own list. I'm sure you'll be surprised how much more you will achieve!

*This one scares me.


  1. Your blog is so cute, Jordan, I'm your newest follower! My parents also won't let me live off campus; I'm trying to convince them before senior year though!!
