Uni has started. This week I'm attending 'taster sessions' for various societies. Last night I got pretty stressed since I was thinking about joining about 7 societies, since so many of them sound good, but this morning I realize that I must be strict with myself and only join a select few. I have my final year of Uni to prioritise, which includes a Project. Furthermore, a housemate made the point "better to have fewer societies and develop deeper friendships and spread yourself thin", which is an accurate point. I'd like associate myself with attractive people who can help further me and bring me closer toward long-term goals. It is for these reasons I have cut out potential societies such as, for example, the City Pubs Society. I am thinking, society-wise: Dance, Expedition, Music & Jamming, Rock. Potentially swapping out Expedition for both Climbing and also Mountaineering, but I'll make that decision this weekend. Other than societies, there's not a whole lot I'll do to expand my social circle. I'll socialize at the gym every now-and-again when I see someone I haven't spoken to, but I've found that 'the gym is the gym, not a playground'. I aim to use this Goal as a means to keep track of developing relationships with various people. For the goal? A personal goal would be to have something like 3 people by the end of the academic year (next May/June) whom I deem lifetime-worthy friends. A goal for January could be to: Find one person that inspires me (and could therefore essentially be an accidental mentor), have a group of 3 guys who I feel comfortable being vulnerable with (basically can have honest conversations over a pint), and perhaps have one social group of at least 5 people whereby we meet up weekly/fortnightly to go clubbing/pubbing/some other group activity.
