1 Month Resolution Update

Resolution 1: Save up the money that I need to be able to pay for my Housing and Textbooks for the 16-17 School Year on my own

For this resolution I've been working on finding a second job. However, like I said in my last post, it hasn't been as easy as I though that it would be. I figured I'd only have to apply to a few places before I'd be hired! However, even after getting work experience at the current job that I have isn't enough experience for anyone to hire me to do anything. I've been waiting for the Cafeteria to start hiring for this semester, but they haven't! Hopefully they will in the upcoming weeks so that I can get another job.

Resolution 2: DRINK MORE WATER!!!

I think that I've been doing at great job with this resolution so far! I've been drinking several bottles of water every day, which I can definitely feel the effects of! I feel a lot better when I wake up, and I also feel a lot more healthy and awake during the day when I'm drinking more water. I think the main thing for me is keeping a water bottle with me at all times. If I have a water bottle on my I'm more likely to drink water. I've been testing out some water reminder apps that are meant to help you keep track of the water you've been drinking. I'll have to let you know about which one I find the most helpful.

Resolution 3: Read at least 20 books by the end of the year

I'm currently working on reading my 2nd book! I'll make a post about what I thought about it when I've finished it. I've been working on schoolwork so I haven't had as much time to sit and read it.

Resolution 4: Clean my dorm room every Saturday

This resolution has helped keep me from getting overly stressed out! I'm the kind of person who, when I get stressed, has to clean everything in order to make my room a space that I can focus on my work in. However, when I'm stressed about my work that normally means I don't have very much time to get it done. Spending part of that time cleaning isn't in my best interest even though it helps me be able to focus more on my work. Because I've been keeping my room cleaner by cleaning it up every Saturday I can come back and get straight to work on what I need to because my room is clean enough for me to be able to focus.

Resolution 5: Stop eating after 9pm

I've been doing awesome at this resolution so far! Whenever I eat after 9, it makes it harder for me to fall asleep because my stomach is actively digesting too much stuff. So, because I haven't been eating after 9 I've been getting a better/longer night's sleep, which is great! I'm a college student, I want all the sleep that I can get!

Resolution 6: Snack less, eat actual meals more

This one is still proving to be a struggle for me. I'm so used to casually snacking 24/7 that it's weird to suddenly stop. Sometimes I'll eat popcorn for an entire afternoon without realizing it just because it's what I've gotten used to. However, I've been better at realizing that I'm snacking too often, and I've been eating actual meals no matter what.
