A lot of us set New Year’s resolutions at the start of the year, but how many of us are still keeping to them by June? Setting mid-year goals is a brilliant way to reevaluate and reset your aims, setting you up for the rest of the year still to come.
Checking in with your goals around the middle of the year can help you take note of what you still want to accomplish. Maybe the challenges you set up for yourself in January aren’t relevant to your life anymore or maybe new priorities have come up since then - after all, quite a lot has changed in the last six months!
From the beginning of storytelling, epic adventures have had their heroes — the larger-than-life, charismatic persona who is willing to endure fantastic quests in order to right a wrong or secure their place in infamy. Though the particular quest may differ from story to story, there are similarities in these tales. Generally, there’s an obstacle that requires immense strength or extreme cleverness to conquer.
And often, the hero has a trusted companion to help him do it.
My name is Jayne Thompson and I’m a procrastinator.
To the outside world, I am the model of efficiency. I have the discipline to perform tasks in a quick and organized manner. I do things systematically and I get projects done on time.

Tragic and misunderstood, a good villain is a complex character who is created not only to pull apart a hero’s worst tendencies, but to poke holes in human nature itself. They have their own rules and beliefs, working within a system they have either created or sworn fealty to. And no matter how monstrous they can be, they always have an underlying shred of recognizable humanity.
Teaching is an attractive profession for people who prize learning, and for those who like to help others grow and advance. The best teachers have a passion for their topics and truly enjoy passing their knowledge on to eager students. They even embrace the challenge of trying to reach underachieving students, believing that all young people have innate abilities and the potential to achieve.
