January Goal Setting

January is often considered the month for deep reflection. We look back at the year behind us, mourning our regrets and celebrating our successes. And then, we look forward to the future year. We make well-meaning resolutions and hope for the best.
What important things happened in your personal life or school life in the last year? Getting 6s’ and 7s’.
What was good or special about it? I sucked and I have to get everything 7.
How did you grow or change? mitosis.
How did your life change? I got angry for a day.
Did you learn anything or decide anything that was really important? studying is really important.
Did you go anywhere or do anything that was really important or interesting? etc. No, only made videos and went to basketball. But also got an xbox.

  1. I like your answer of “mitosis”! I notice a contradiction between goal 1 and 2. You really shouldn’t worry about getting PERFECT grades, because then you will be too stressed out. Just try to do your best and realize that you can’t score perfectly every time, and you will probably have a much easier time. I used to get very upset when I got an A- or B+, but then I realized that it’s sometimes just chance, or a certain teacher’s decision, or other things that you can’t control which lead to a not-perfect grade. So I think you should consider changing your first goal so that you only focus on getting HIGH scores, not PERFECT scores, and that will automatically help with your second goal.
