Level Up

"In a middle school full of bullies, insane teachers, and gross school lunches, Ned Bigby—that's me—and my three best friends try to do the impossible: create a guide that will help you survive school."

                                                                     - Ned Bigby

Just for a second, I think we all wish we could go back to the good ol' days with Ned Bigby playing in the background. Our only worry was about the new movie premiering on Nick later that night. Sigh.....I loved those days. However, I'm starting to learn how to love the present state. I think focusing on the present is something that seems to be a challenge for most. Why is that? For me, I often get ahead of myself when it comes to the future. Especially things that make me stressed out, like paying back student loans. All the joys of a future college graduate. With the thoughts of the future taking over, I begin to forget about my present state. I don't want to do that anymore, and I want to encourage others to do the same. What better time to pick up positive habits then a new school year?

Going back to school always hits a range of emotions for me. A mixture of excitement, stress, joy, anxiety...honestly a lot. However, this year I'm more excited. I am in a different environment, around different people. I feel more positive energy alluring, so I know great things will come from this. My main goal this year is to level up in any way I can! What are your goals for the school year? If you don't have any..set some. Whether they are short-term, or long-term, you should always set goals for yourself. Setting goals, and accomplishing them is such a fulfilling feeling for one. It allows you the room to reflect, and grow.

Mentioned above, I told you guys that my main goal was to level up in any way. Below, I will list a few of my goals that will help me Level Up. Who knows, maybe we share similar goals. Maybe my goals will help you establish yours.

My Goals:

  • Get a 3.7- 4.0 GPA this semester.

  • Be able to reach more people with RBLT

  • Be able to help people on a continuous basis

  • Learn new recipes

  • Staying healthy mentally, physically, and emotionally.

Now, these are just a few, but they are definitely my top priorities. Some will be harder to do than others, but I am willing to put in the work. Therefore, set goals for yourself my friends. When you accomplish them, set more and don't stop. Build yourself up continuously. Build a life for yourself that you will always be proud of. Never be afraid to progress. Never be afraid to fail. We leveling up all year around loves, so get with it or get lost.
