This is not only a cute idea for your dorm, but also a way to set goals.
Idea 1: As you set a goal (get at least a B on your exams, get a bid for a sorority, start your english paper more than a day before it’s due, etc.) write it on a piece of paper and stick it in the jar. At the end of the semester or year, take them out and read them. This way, you can feel good about the goals you have accomplished. The ones you did NOT accomplish can be a lesson. If you didn’t write your paper before the last minute, you’ll know that procrastination is something to work on for the next semester.
Idea 2: Write a bunch of goals you would like to get done (lose 10 pounds, update your wardrobe, make more friends) and every month draw one randomly from the jar. Keep that goal taped to your mirror so you can see it every day and keep it there until you fulfill it. When you’ve completed that goal, draw another.
What you’ll need:
-Colorful paper (try to match it to your dorm or school colors)
-A clear container (jar, vase, fishbowl, etc)
