    A major goal I have right now is to not even think about procrastinating. I think if I keep that mindset going on I will have good grades. Another goal is to try my absolute best. If I give it my all this ties back into what I said, I will have good grades. Seeing that I have good grades is mentally pleasing.

    A main goal of mine is to successfully execute at least 1-2 performances with Studio K K-Pop. It’s reaching around 2 years since K-Pop has performed at school. Now being the President, I have to make sure that I will uphold the quality of performances that our team has had since the beginning.
