Though 2016 provided the ideal plot for a riveting disaster movie, many, including myself, are hoping 2017 will be gentler to the wounded souls. Personally, I’ve set up a few goals I hope to achieve even if only for a month or two.
- Having a love for dancing and an increased fascination with choreographers and dancers such as Ian Eastwood and Josh Killacky, my mom proposed I learn at least one choreography a month to keep myself busy and to engage in some sort of exercise. Given my obsession with the energy and playful choreography in the video, I hope to learn Missy Elliott – WTF (Where They From) | Tricia Miranda Choreography by the end of the month.
- This resolution made the top of my list for 2016 and it’s at the top of my list again: I want to read more books for pleasure as opposed to reading because my teacher asked the class to cram an entire novel into a two month span of notes, analysis and loathed testing. A few books on my list include Nerve by Jeanne Ryan, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, and the original Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie.
- Seemingly small but quite important to me, I am working towards passing all of my upcoming AICE exams, including the AICE Math exam, which is proving to be my worst subject at the moment.
- Building from the previous goal, I am working towards earning at least a B in the AICE Math class itself. It’s one of the first classes to challenge me so much and I intend to overcome the challenge.
Four resolutions that mean a lot to me is all I have to offer. Each of them include one of my hobbies or interests–reading, dance, education. I hope and intend to achieve the goals I have set up for myself.
