Happy New Years! 22 Goals for 2022

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! So 2021 didn’t exactly go as planned, but 2022 is here now.

I think the pandemic has shown us that humans really are adaptable.

Yesterday, I looked back at my 2021 New Years post. Many of the things that I was looking forward to did come to fruition. For example, I got back to school, hit PRs in the gym and I’m now the secretary of the Econ research club. I also managed to learn R, got creative in the kitchen and little bro’s doing well at UChicago. Other things just weren’t in the cards: my study hasn’t gone well and there was another class conflict, Little Moochi collapsed. Finally, there are things that change. I’m going to do more maths and maybe even a CS grad class (no, I do not know how to code yet).

Now, reflection over. Time to look forward to 2022. Here are 22 goals I have for 2022. Let’s see how many of these I can achieve.

  1. Get all my applications turned in- I thought I’d start with something easy. I’m applying for the NSF GRF and grad schools. The success of said applications will be on my 2023 list
  2. Go off campus at least 3 times a semester- trips to Aldis don’t count 😉
  3. Learn Python- my plan of avoiding CS isn’t going to work
  4. Get a paper published
  5. Get an A in probability theory, without my friend (that one)- I’ve started studying. Wish me luck!
  6. Pull 3x bodyweight- I’ve been chasing this goal since 2019, each time blocked by unforseen events (surgery, COVID). This time I’m finally in a position to get there
  7. Learn about taxes
  8. Make a Swiss roll
  9. Finish a piece of writing- I have two pieces in progress. Just need to get the words on the page
  10. On the topic of writing, write at least 30 posts
  11. Read 5 non- Economics books
  12. Try a new cuisine- There are a couple of kebab houses near campus. I need an excuse to go 🙂
  13. Read a book in Spanish
  14. Go through Rudin (real analysis)
  15. Score in 90th percentile in both sections of the GRE- Standardized testing is stupid…
  16. Get a job- I was a grader last semester. Hopefully they want me back
  17. Thoroughly research 3 companies- I need to stop making excuses on this investment thing
  18. Cook for friends at least 2 times a semester.
  19. Read and document 50 papers
  20. Present at a lab meeting- It’s been 4 semesters since I’ve been able to attend. FInally!
  21. Finish writing a model- I’m working on one explaining the decision to confess compromising information online.
  22. Complete 20 unbroken pullups.

That’s my list for this year.

What do you hope to accomplish in 2022?

Let me know and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

  1. Practical and achieveable! Good plan, except a little reserve thoughts on the body lift, haha, from a mom’s perspective.
