During the spring semester, I was an RA (resident assistant) at BYU. I wasn't enrolled for summer, (thank goodness because being an EFY counselor was one of the best decisions I have ever made) but I'm back at school and back to being an RA. I have been so fortunate to have the great jobs I've had that allow me to progress and grow while hopefully helping others to do the same. The theme of my floor is "Welcome to Wonderland." Using a talk from President Monson, I am focusing on the part from Alice in Wonderland when Alice asks the Cheshire Cat for directions. He asks her where she wants to go and when she replies that she isn't sure, he tells her it doesn't really matter which way she goes then. Each week I plan a meeting with the girls on my floor. I knew I wanted to focus on that encounter between Alice and the cat to point out that if we don't have goals for ourselves, we won't know where we're headed this semester.
I have always loved making goals at the beginning of a new school year, even more than making New Year's resolutions. I created this worksheet as a fun way to help the girls (and me) think of some new goals to work on this semester.
