Hopes and Dreams Part Two
Since each year we have a New years Eve, we need to select a goal so we can fit in with the rest of the year. I want to know what I need to work on and what I already have done. My old goals were: improving my reading skills, adjusting the time I need for practicing my instrument, and finally, improving my multiplication and division skills.
I reached the first goal and the last goal. I did not complete the middle goal because: I am more interested in knowing what we have for homework than playing my instrument. I also don’t want to sit around and play my instrument while my little brother and sister are watching a movie. And I always say that when I am busy ”Playing my instrument is not important. Maybe I’ll do it some other day.“
So remember how I said those things that show why I failed my goal? So we are going to get more of those details. Lets start with the first reason and I will explain them all as we go down. Well it says here that I really am not interested in playing my instrument and here’s why: Every time I play my instrument I just picture something in my head and don’t concentrate on what I need to work on. Or maybe I would just play a made up tune instead of playing the song that Mr.Bligh assigned. I loose my interest in what I am playing because it is boring. I like playing the songs Mr.Bligh assigned, but it is more exciting playing your instrument with the whole band and orchestra than playing it by yourself. The second reason says that I don’t like it when my little brother and little sister are watching a movie and I can’t watch because I have to play my instrument. Here’s why: I get distracted when I hear them laughing and when I hear the TV I could replay the whole entire scene in my head and then I just forget what I am doing and then I just sit there and stare into space. And when I sit there just staring in space I would want someone to tell me that I should be paying attention to my instrument. The third reason was ”Playing my instrument is not important. Maybe I’ll do it some other day.“ And here is why: Remember when I told you that I think that playing my instrument is really un-interesting because it boring. And I really don’t want to waste my time playing my instrument while I hear other people laughing and having a great time. I don’t want to have anyone to tell me not to have quality time with my family. For some reason I usually do the spending-more-time-with-my-family thing before I do any work. I think that it would be better to enjoy the holidays with your family than do work and not have any time to have fun.
I’ll start by talking about the new goals I have set. I have set two goals. One is to not be shy. I picked this goal because: I always think that everyone will make fun of me if I get an answer wrong. Another is to make new friends. I want to make new friends because I don’t have enough because all of them are at lunch lessons.
If I were to pick a favorite goal it would be to learn how to shoot with a bow and arrow. I picked this goal for a specific reason, and that reason is that I don’t want to learn how to shoot a gun, or a rifle or anything that includes metal and bullets. If you have an arrow, you can test it out to see which is the best. You can’t do that with a gun. You can shoot to see how fast they go, but you can’t pick a bullet because once you’ve used it, it’s gone. But you can do that with an arrow. There are so many things that bows and arrows can do.
Now that I have perfected the things I need to work, I need to focus on achieving them. I think that this years goals were the best yet!!!
