My goals and plans

For this blog entry, I have chosen to write about my short term goals and plans. Specifically, I will blog about my academic goals and plans for the next six months or so. Here is my list of short term goals and plans.

  • “graduate” the ESL program, specifically, get high grades (preferably A's) in both ESL 914 and 924
  • get enough grants and scholarships to go to school full-time
  • continue English (400)
  • start business math or bookkeeping class
  • start nutrition-related class

These short term goals and plans lead directly to my longer term goals of; speaking and writing English fluently, understanding business management, getting a certification in nutrition and, eventually, running my own food business. I plan on achieving on these goals by studying hard, receiving tutoring when needed and finding the grants and scholarships to do this full time. I don’t know all of the resources available to me to accomplish these goals but, right now, the most important resources I have are my teachers and my counselors.The two biggest obstacles I face are financial and intellectual. I think the financial obstacle is obvious. When I say “intellectual,” I mean that I am not used to being a student anymore. I am pretty sure that I will get use to being student again. 


  1. Gina, I am not sure about your knowledge of food and nutrition, but I can assure you that you are "on the way" to accomplishing your academic goals in English. You put forth a lot of effort, and this brings you closer to your goals, every day! Keep up the superb work, Jeanne

  2. Thank you Professor Jeanne for your wonderful comments! I'll try my best to keep up.

  3. Gina - You can and will do it!! I know so.
