A continuously updated post where I complete my goals for this school year.
Alright, so school’s over, and I think I managed to do pretty okay! I didn’t manage to complete all of my goals, but I completed all of the ones I initially put on here, so I think I did pretty decent! I kinda forgot about all this after April, but now I remember, and I will be doing this again next school year, for Grade 9!
School is starting tomorrow, and there are a lot of things I would like to fix about myself regarding my bad habits in school. I would also like to become a nicer person this year, and ‘seek first to understand, then to be understood’. I also have to stop procrastinating.
So I decided to make a list of small missions for me to accomplish at school on this blog, and I will continuously update this post to check off the tasks I have completed. Of course, there is no need for me to put this on the blog, but this way I feel more compelled to actually complete these tasks knowing that there might be someone monitoring my progress (there probably isn’t though, this blog was literally started three days ago).
I’m going to start off with some tasks that are low in quantity first because I don’t know how well I’ll do. If I find these are too easy I’ll make them harder. Once I get a feel for the kind of homework I get I’ll adjust these tasks to fit. As for the tasks unrelated to schoolwork, I won’t edit them.

Now… what am I going to do over the March break?
As the title of this post explains, I just uninstalled all of my favourite multiplayer games. Which means I still have some single-player games on my computer, but the difference between single-player and multiplayer games is that I only get addicted to and binge multiplayer games, while single-player games I only tend to play for a bit (30 min or so) at a time.
You see, I decided to make a change in my life. I believe I mentioned this in another post, but recently I received admission by this really cool school. There are so many talented people there, and I have to work hard in order to make sure I get the most out of my time. Which means I can’t spend as much time as I have on video games. So in preparation for this, I’m NOT going to reinstall any of those games I have just uninstalled, and I will NOT be addicted to video games. I really need to use my time more efficiently.
This kinda sucks.
Well…wish me good luck!
Though I doubt anyone’s actually reading this lol.
Yes, sorry, this is really late. I’m posting this 10 days later than I should’ve. But I was kinda busy (not really) doing other stuff. Also these goals won’t be about school. By the end of the year I want to be a better person.
- Respect my mom. I’ve been listening to my mom less and less over the past few years, and I should listen to her more often. It’s just the two of us in our family, so I should also talk to her more often and be kinder to her.
- Respect my teachers. Frequently I don’t pay attention in class, specifically in French and Math. For math, it’s because the school curriculum is too easy for me, and usually my teacher doesn’t mind too much if I zone out a bit during math. But in French, the teacher doesn’t really teach us much, so I end up doing something else that the teacher doesn’t like me doing, like talking or browsing the internet without permission. And then when she reprimands me for doing these things, I kind of just glare at her or make smart-ass comments. So that’s something I really need to control.
- Respect the opinions of other people. I’ve mentioned this before on this blog, but I’m sort of dogmatic in my opinions, and I can often get into heated arguments with friends because of it. An example is yesterday when we were talking about Star Wars and I claimed that the prequels were the best. Nobody agreed with me. And we yelled at each other for a few minutes. I’m especially dogmatic when it comes to things that I believe I am experienced in. Basically, I am sometimes an elitist. And that isn’t good.
- Work hard and don’t be lazy. I often procrastinate on my homework so I have to be more proactive and work on it over the course of the time given instead of only the last few days.
So I think that’s it. Let’s hope I fulfill these throughout and by the end of the year.
