Goals for this semester

  • Read something in Indonesian that isn’t directly related to class at least once a week.
  • Keep a notebook handy to write down new words and then actually make flash cards. Vocabulary is one of the things you really need to work on.
  • Dance at least once a week.
  • Try to cook new things sometimes.
  • Translate more things.
  • Really plan ahead for deadlines and keep the thesis in mind when you’re doing this.
  • Practice kendhang occasionally.
  • Get better at Twitter but don’t be distracted by it.
  • Keep an eye on Frankfurt Book Fair news.
  • Write fiction sometimes.
  • Read journal articles related to the thesis and take notes on them. Every week. Even when you don’t want to.
  • Make good use of the career center.

  1. I should make out a list of goals, too. Mine lists tend to be to-do lists. I think a goal will be to research, at least somewhat, the music I’m about to hear at a concert BEFORE the concert. I love classical music, but know very little about it or the composer. Thanks for the incentive!
