Howdy, everybody! The countdown is getting close as we await Gig’Em Week and the amazing world that is Texas A&M. For those of you who have already started school, however, I will pray for your souls.

18. What are your goals for the new school year?

This is a topic that is very near and very dear to my heart for numerous reasons.Number one, because after a whole summer of loneliness and boredom (which I talked about here), I’m ready to start new things and really feel involved with the school. I couldn’t do that with being a part of Blinn TEAM, but now that I’m going to be a full-time student, this means so much more to me. Number two, I would like to have something to pace myself with so that I can say that junior year will not only be the year of exploration for me but also the year of productivity (what? college? productive?).


1. Join a sorority

Before you go down the path of thinking about party girls slugging down beer like it’s water, let me remind you that there’s two sides to the average American sorority: the reality side, and the Hollywood side. Thankfully, sororities are nothing like what we see on the big screen or the silver screen, and I want to join because I want to be meet other young women who want to live life to the fullest, learn all they can, and find happiness.


2. Bring up my GPA

When I was in high school, I was in the top 25% of my class. Unfortunately, since I started college, I kind of lost sight of my determination and I’ve slacked. Considering that I’ll be taking 17 hours this semester, the chance to build up my GPA would be very nice indeed.


3. Join more clubs

I’ve kind of touched on this with the sorority thing already, but A&M has almost a thousand organizations (if not more than) and I haven’t given myself the chance to open up. Maybe do karate, or archery, or pretty much anything else. What makes this goal different from the sorority goal, however, is that I can get easy membership into the other clubs. I would like to join a sorority first, and then work the other clubs/academics around that.


4. Study Abroad

Whether that’s going to a different country or being a part of the Disney College Program, I would love to travel somewhere else and be able to learn, not being tied down by the University. Why? Because as much as I love A&M, traveling is my first love. (#sorrynotsorry)
