Last January 1, I have posted an entry on this blog with the title My Goals for 2010. I simply enumerated in that post, well, the things I want to accomplish for this year. Now, let me give you, my dear readers, an update or updates on how I’m doing so far with regards to accomplishing my goals this year.
Goal #1 – Finish my associate’s degree and graduate by May 8, 2010.
Goal #1 Status: ACCOMPLISHED (with flying colors). I graduated from the UP Open University last May 8, 2010 with an Associate in Arts Degree. The ceremony was held at the UP Open University Headquarters at Los Baños, Laguna. To know more about this momentous event in my life, read “I’m now an AA Graduate” at the Distance Education in the Philippines blog.
Goal #2 – Pursue a Bachelor’s Degree.
Since I was able to accomplish Goal #1 with flying colors, I’m currently pursuing a Bachelor of Secondary Education at the UP College of Education. I was admitted during the first semester of Academic Year 2009-2010 and now in my second semester. I’m hoping to graduate two years from now or even earlier.
Goal #3 – Save!
I’m not really sure if I have accomplished this goal. I still have some money left in my bank account that I’m reserving for my graduate studies; but I’ve been buying not-so-cheap stuff for my podcasting network. Nevertheless, I’m glad to report that, so far, my credit card didn’t do me any harm. My spending habits are quite the same as compared to my pre-credit card days. Plus, so far, I haven’t purchased anything that I cannot really afford. I only use my credit card to puy for stuff that I buy online (e.g. web hosting, domains, etc.).
Goal #4 – Support Charities and NGOs
I have been a World Vision sponsor for more than a year now. However, this December, I have decided to finally stop being a World Vision sponsor. I think that it’s better if I get to support different causes every month or every so often. Nevertheless, I’ll still be supporting charities and NGOs in the future. For now, I shall continue to fund my family’s apostolate, Awit at Papuri.
Goal #5 – Remove CHORVA from my vocabulary
You be the judge if I have accomplished this goal or not! 🙂
Goal #6 – Stay Fit!
You do know that I love walking, right? I walk a lot especially when I’m in school! I rarely ride the IKOT jeep when in campus! I just walk to go from one building to another. Seriously. I’m not really sure about the “Stay Fit!” part because I haven’t even stepped on a weighing scale for quite some time now!
So far so good, yes? Now, I shall think about the year to come—2011.
