I have a personal blog on blogger, and one of the blogs I follow posted about having “summer goals.” That inspired me to make my own for this summer. I really need to make goals for myself, and actually stick to them. I don’t have a job right now, even though I’ve applied for jobs at a bunch of different places many times over the last few years.
The biggest goal I want to do is to apply for a job a day until I get a job. I’ve gotten discouraged in the past by the process, but I’m not giving up yet. Sometimes I can be very determined if I want to be, and this is one of the things I’m determined about. Even though no one’s hiring me. And that I’m a really shy person, and a lot of jobs require me to go out of my comfort zones.
But, it would be good for me to get out of my comfort zones, since I’ve been in the same place for a few years now, and I need and want change. I hate being so shy, especially since I’m an adult now, and I’m in the real world.
A few other summer goals, which I really need to do (and some I really want to do) are to go for 30 minutes walks 5 days a week, read 2 to 3 books a month, knit or crochet at least 20 minutes a day, and bake at least once a week.
I volunteer every Friday for two hours, but the rest of the time, I’m bored a lot, and need more to do. So, having summer goals is good for me. Although, I will need people to help me keep these goals. I tend to be a procrastinator (a BIG procrastinator) sometimes, and I need some motivattion. So I will probably ask my brothers, dad, and friends to help me with this.
I’m really big about the jobs goal, because I want to go back to school in the spring, and I want to pay for everything, or at least most of it, myself. I don’t like depending on other people to help me out, especially with money. I just hope I can get a job soon, because I am getting kind of frustrated with the process. I don’t want to have to reapply for jobs multiple times.
But, I’m not going to give up. I know times are hard, and it’s difficult to find/get a job sometimes.
Well, that’s all for now. More to come soon.
