Hey there, readers.
Last semester of my Freshman Year of College, I gained three habits: one not-so-surprising habit and two very surprising habits.
- Habit No. 1: Late Night Eating. An hour or so after dinner every night, I would have a bowl of cereal or a bowl of oatmeal and/or some sort of sugar-laden treat.
- Habit No. 2: Exercising: Not a Daily Requirement. In fact, exercising was not a weekly requirement. And, if you’re wondering, yes, from the combination of Habits Nos. 1 and 2, I did gain the Freshman 15 (ish).
- Habit No. 3: It Doesn’t Matter If the Room is Clean. Or the dishes. Imagine two girls who shed more than dogs and a floor that hasn’t been swept (in months), coupled with a pile of dishes that haven’t been washed (in weeks). Gross!
This semester, I am going to try, try, try to conquer my newly-formed habits by eating better, exercising on a daily basis (and updating my Workout Log), and keeping my dorm room in a respectable condition. When I eat well, exercise often, and live in a clean and organized environment, I feel good. I feel great.
This semester, I am going to let myself be the person I know I can be. A brave, smart student. A patient, selfless, fun babysitter. A willing, helpful worker. A disciplined, yet balanced, outgoing, allowing self.
More soon, I hope.
