It’s about time we all checked up on them!
A few months ago, I wrote an article on what my plans were for the new year, which at the time was 2012, and how I would accomplish them. After looking at each one of them, I realize just how far off I was from completing any of them thus far. To start, I had decided to go to the gym at least 2-3 times a week, which I did not accomplish. However, from February until about May 7th, I was suffering from an illness that took months of antibiotics and discomfort before I was finally able to feel healthy again. Being sick, I wasn’t exactly wanting to go to the gym too often, and so I sat around, going out just long enough to move around and eat. Another resolution I didn’t accomplish for the semester was to bring my GPA to a 3.4, like I wanted to originally. Instead, my GPA actually fell to a 2.47, 2.77 prior, because I struggled in one of my classes.
On the bright side of that, I decided to take on another major: Sports Management. I have also decided to minor in journalism, as I’ve decided a job that I could potentially excel in is as a sports analyst. At the start of this upcoming semester, I have hopes of rejoining the fencing club at the University of Florida, since I was unable to join in the Spring like I had planned. This summer, I have decided to start biking again to condition myself back up to par with the other fencers; I haven’t fenced in over a year. On the bright side, I have continued to meet new people, and I also rekindled old friendships, as well.
As for my Triond goals for 2012, I am 39 articles short of my goal for the year(50) and 4,424 views short of my goal for the year(I’ve gained only about 3,000 or so since my last update). As for continuing to get the payout each month, I have been able to do that for all but one month this year, in which I hadn’t even really logged onto Triond that month, so I didn’t worry about it too much. The last few weeks of school were extremely stressful for me, and so I wasn’t exactly worrying over writing too much. I actually have a few articles that are left unfinished in my “Drafts” folder that I had started over the past school year. At the time, I was completely ready to write each article, and yet they sit there untouched for months. Anyway, I will be trying to get back on track with my writing here on Triond as soon as possible, but no guarantees. I am taking a summer course to try and raise my GPA, and so I will need to get a job to also pay for said class. More than likely, I’ll still have quite a bit of free time anyway, so expect to see a bit more of me on here. Thank you to all of my viewers whom have stuck with me this past year, and I hope to start entertaining you all at some point soon! If you have any reflections on you resolutions thus far, or any comments, opinions, or ideas, please feel free to comment, and as always, thanks for reading.
