Back to School Goals - August 11th 2014, 01:32 AM

Hey everyone so today was my last day of summer break, as I start junior year tomorrow. Not only will it be junior year, but it's going to be the most challenging (as I've heard) since I am entering the IB program at my school. To get into the back-to-school spirit, I decided to come up with some goals, tore them off into separate slips (a goal on each slip) and put them all into one of my many many piggy banks on my dresser (this one is shaped like a cat ). Anyways, all the goals involve school, whether it's academics or sports. For example, some of my goals are:

- Get all A's each semester (with the exception of a B in Math).

** As a side not I'm an A average student, but get one B each semester, usually in math.

Another goal was:

- Get all A's at least one semester.

- I also had sport-related goals too:

- Score 5+ goals during soccer season.

- Win 5+ matches during wrestling season.

- Win 1st place at 1+ swim meet.

** I'm joining swim for the first time but I've taken many many swim lessons before, so I know what I'm doing :P

I also have club related goals:

- Finish all mandatory NHS volunteer hours by January.

- Join Jew Crew.

- Join Best Buddies.

- Join Friends of Islam.

- Be in Link Crew for the 2nd time.

So I've wanted to come up with an incentive to uphold and follow through with many (hopefully all) these goals. So my idea is that once every two weeks, I take the extra change out of my wallet, and store it in one of my many other piggy banks. Then at the end of the year, if I went through with a majority of the goals (I think I have around 15, so I'm thinking 11 or 12 would be the majority) I can keep all that extra change (though I doubt it'll add up to much ). And if I don't, I'll just donate it or give it to someone else.

I'd talk to my friends about this and ask for their support, but they'd kinda just shoot me down, or say I'm trying too hard, aha...I originally wasn't going to try out for swim and instead do volleyball, but one of them told me "Oh don't do that, you'd never make the team."


So yeah, aha...comments and suggestions would be awesome
