Part One: My future reading goals are to try and continue to read books and actually continue to finish them. I think this year was actually the first year in a long time that I finished every book that I started. For other English classes in the past I have skimmed some chapters just to get through them, but I didn't do that this semester and I found to actually enjoy the books more this way, so I would like to continue to do that. As for my writing goals, I would really just like to improve my writing skills when it comes to language and vocabulary. I think the one thing that I need to continue to work on to continue to improve my education is time management. I think I have improved on this a bit more this semester, but I still have a long way to go. I need to try to set aside specific time to do school work versus work work. Two books that I am interested in reading is one, The Grapes of Wrath, because I have heard how great it is and I have never even attempted to sit down and read it. Another book that I would like to read is, 1984 by George Orwell. The reason I want to try to read this book is because I have already read two of his books in the past and have enjoyed them both, so I think he is an author that I would like to stick with.
Part Two: I am a pretty practical person, so I don't think that I have ever thought about a wild dream for myself until now. If I had to choose something, I would probably say my wildest dream is to just pack my bags as soon as I graduate and move somewhere down south without anything pre-planned and to just try and start a life from scratch. I feel like it would give me a different perspective on life and take me outside of my comfort zone.
