It’s a new year in January, and many people create targets for themselves to accomplish. This year, I would like to reach some goals to make myself a better person.
My first aim is to read more books. During the test season, I didn’t have much time to read. Novels help increase vocabulary, knowledge, and interests. Those are really important in life, so I think reading will boost my strength in Language Arts. My goal for this year’s reading is to finish five to ten books each month and read when I have time!
The second target I have on my list is to work on my gymnastics harder than before. After the pandemic, it’s hard to find time and concentrate on this exercise. Gymnastics helps retain my physical strength and flexibility. I exercise the basics in my house for one hour, and challenge my dad to do pull-ups, pushups, and handstands.
Lastly, I’d like to fix my emotions and talk more kindly. Sometimes, I get so angry that I want to scream so badly, and it’s hard to restrain myself from doing it. And other times, I feel cranky and talk to my family in a not-so-nice way. Controlling my emotions is a big part of my life, and I need to fix that. Next time I feel like I’m going to burst lava out of my mouth, I’ll go into my room and cool off. This way, my feelings will go back to normal again!
A new year helps me improve myself in different years, and build different targets. This way, I’ll enhance myself with different goals and work hard to accomplish them. It’s one of the best holidays to celebrate Lunar New Year, and brand new year to fix the crooked parts in myself!
