Goals and a Vision

As a full-time student and full-time employee, I am finding it very hard to balance my time. I'm sure many women my age are in this situation: juggling school and work. I have been thinking of ways I can make time for the activities I love such as dancing and fitness, knitting, and writing, but I lack the organization.

Here are some goals I am setting for myself.

1. Become more organized. How? Making sure I carry my calendar with me everywhere and mark down spots in my calendar (early in the day) for homework and such.
2. Work out three times per week. How? Set aside time in my calendar to work out, and stick with it! Find a jogging buddy, or start using my Kinect more often.
3. Finish all homework that's due two-to-three days in advance. How? Being more organized will help, and once I get a computer that will help as well. However, I can do this by carrying my backpack with me and keeping it in my car; therefore, if I have any extra time, I will spend it reading through my assigned reading or writing in a notebook.

In addition to these goals, I have made a checklist of homework I have to accomplish. I'm in my last semester of school, and I love school, so I cannot afford to put that love on the back burner. I know these goals will keep me motivated! I have four weeks before my "hardcore" half-marathon training begins, and I want to be ready. I need a clear mind and a vision of where I am headed.
