Carrie's Countdown: Week Six

I turned 22 on July 4th and I have the lovely honor of sharing my birthday with Lauren another intern. I have mentioned Workitout100 before and they did a get to know you goal setting post so you take how old you are and that is how many goals you create so for instance if you are 23 you come up with 23 goals to accomplish in the year you are 23. And although I am about halfway through my half journey I want to get to know y’all and for me to get to know you I want you to get to know me. So in honor of turning 22 here are some goals I have made for myself. So here is some information about me. I am 22 years old, I am a runner although I still think its weird to call myself that, I love to organize, make lists and set goals, I am an only child, I have lived in Ohio and Virginia, I am finishing up my bachelors in psychology with a minor in communication studies and a certificate in Leadership, I love music, I have an obsession with coffee, and I am loving getting back in shape and working out. So that is more than enough information about me so here are some of my goals I can’t wait to hear yours!
