This sign has pretty much been the theme today so far. This morning was absolutely hectic, but I don't mean to complain about that, because it's my responsibility and part of it is my own fault. But my message to you readers out there is this: Remain calm in all situations. And also, a sugar free cinnamon dolce latte can help a lot, especially when it's freezing cold outside and May decides to enter 2013 with a big snow fall...even though April had quite it's share.
The message of "keeping calm" is going to pop up a lot for me this month, because May is always crazy for students, am I right? With summer coming, final exams approaching, keeping up the GPA for final quarter, and just surviving whatever grade you're in? It's insane. But I know God has a plan, and helps me through all situations. Just like flowers will come through the snow, good things will come through the bad.
So, without further ado, here are my May resolutions:
I have to get my Primary class reading done by May 10th! Yikes! I'd like to get an 80 or an 85 on this percentage at the very least.
If at all possible, I'd like to do some diary writing at least five times this month.
Finish the Book of Isaiah
A friend and I have been reading the Book of Isaiah together, and I've fallen a bit behind. I'd like to finish it by the end of this month.
Read either Judges or Proverbs
I decided to take smaller steps on this one, since it's been hard to get this done.
Practice at least half an hour per week.
Get through Extracurricular Events
Drama Club, Symphony Concert, Jazz Band performances....it's a big list.
Give Mom an Awesome Mother's Day
I think everyone should take part in this resolution. Moms do a ton for us that we don't always realize sometimes, and they deserve a really awesome day.
Conquer Final Exams
My midterms could have been better, and if I come up with a good game plan, I think I can have a good finals week overall.
Finish Tenth Grade
I can't believe it, but after this month, I'll be halfway through high school! I want to finish this year strong so that I can go into summer knowing that I did my best, looking forward to the second half of high school.
Whew! That's a bunch. Sure, some of them are recurring goals, but a lot of them are new to the party as well. Here's to a challenging but promising month ahead!
Question for the Reader: What are your goals this month?
