Ten Goals I Want To Accomplish by the End of This Year

1. Learn basic sign language, basic Spanish, and basic french.

Ten Goals I Want To Accomplish by the End of This Year

One day at the nursing home, a patient of mine only spoke Spanish. I don't remember Spanish and haven't spoke it since High School. I couldn't communicate with her and it was clear she needed something. As a CNA student at the time, I couldn't do anything without getting myself in some legal trouble. The nursing home is severely understaffed and I couldn't find a CNA to help me and I didn't even know what she needed. I finally got someone a CNA to help me and the patient laughed at the situation. But still, I swore it wouldn't happen again.


2. Get a job as CNA

I want a job that has something to do with my career as a nurse. If I get a job as a CNA opposed to working odd jobs or at fast food place, I can get my foot in the door, familiarize myself with the hospital, meet important people, and network myself. I have applied for quite a few jobs at the hospital but the hospital takes a while to call people back. I'm so desperate I applied for a temporary job as a pediatrics CNA and I don't even like kids.


3. Start working out

I weigh a hundred pounds and my doctor says my health is almost perfect. However, I haven't worked out since high school. I only stay skinny because I don't eat garbage. I would like to start working out. I want to get stronger because I almost always need help moving patients. I would like to be able to do more myself if I'm able.


4. Do more to not make myself stressed

This last semester I stressed myself out so badly that I made myself and the people close to me believe that I was really sick. Like I said, my health is good but this "illness" was my anxiety and stress. It's amazing how much stress can affect the body.


5. Wear clothes that make me happy

Sometimes other people would consider me overdressed for events but I don't care. I love clothes and shoes. When I start working as a CNA, I have to wear grey scrubs. I can still keep my individuality by wearing some crazy compression socks.


6. Better manage my anxiety

Ten Goals I Want To Accomplish by the End of This Year

I was diagnosed with anxiety this year and I have accepted that I have anxiety. I was really upset and hated the idea of having a mental illness. I already have a chronic neurological condition called migraines. I have anxiety but anxiety doesn't have me. At first, I hated it and refused to take medications. I still don't want medications. That is a last resort. I am going to start doing more yoga in combination with exercise and look into medical marijuana.


7. Pass my math and history class

I have a lot of difficulty with math. I really want to be a nurse so I am going to make it work. Math comes easy to other people. History comes easy to me. Which is fine that math is difficult for me. It just means I have to work twice as hard.


8. Be on good terms with my parents

Ten Goals I Want To Accomplish by the End of This Year

My mom and dad have accepted that I don't plan on having kids. That used to be a sore subject but they accepted it and even said it's a smart decision. My dad admitted that he and my mom asked too much of me when they asked me to take care of my brother. My mom defended me when my brother was disrespecting me and not appreciating what I do for him.

9. Save up as much money as possible

Ten Goals I Want To Accomplish by the End of This Year

When I get a job as a CNA, I will be working quite a lot. In my state, healthcare workers get good money and good benefits. I would like to move out and get some independence but I don't know anymore. I don't know if it will be a good idea. I might work for a whole year as a CNA and when I get in the nursing program, I will apply to be a nurse apprentice. Or maybe I won't move out until I graduate with a nursing degree. It will be hard enough trying to work and go to school. At my parents house, I don't have to worry about stuff like rent. I don't want to add more stress from stuff like trying to make rent when I'm already stressed as I get my Nursing degree.


10. Take every day one at a time

As a CNA, I am going to be dealing with death and people dying everyday. Instead of thinking, "a patient of mine just died and it's only Monday." Think, "it was a crappy Monday since a patient died but I got through it. Death is a natural part of life. At least they're not suffering anymore."

    These are really good goals! I haven't learned french technically but I deal with some French wjth my job it's very similar to English so that shouldn't be hard!
    What are you gonna do or want to do for your workout?
    Is this still revelant?
    • Definitely gain more muscle and possibly become more flexible. I've also noticed that I have a bad habit of lifting with my back and not my legs and I need to stop this habit right away.

    • Yesss!!! Most definitely need to stop that! Dont want to hurt you back and that's how you do it. Yeah also stretching may help before your shift to prevent injury.

    Are you a nurse or a CNA because those are different? The reason I ask is because you said you want a job that has to do with your career as a nurse. Then you said if you get a job as a CNA as opposed to do jobs or fast food. You also said you applied to be a pediatric CNA.
    • Right now I'm a cna but would like to be a nurse. Nursing is my career choice. I only applied to be a pediatric CNA because I need a job.
