Head For

Idiom: Head for

Example 1:

Vicki: I can’t believe it's almost time for Summer Break. I’m so excited.

Bjorn: Me, too!

Vicki: Do you have any plans?

Bjorn: I’m heading for Yellowstone Park. I’m going to spend the week camping and hiking!

Vicki: Hmmm…that’s good if you like camping and the outdoors. I’m more of a city girl.

Bjorn: Really?

Vicki: Yes. After school is out, I’ll get ready to head for the outlet malls. I can’t think of anything better than shopping for a week!

Example 2:

Janine:  Pete, you really should start studying more every day for classes. You are getting more behind every day.

Pete: Oh, Janine. You worry too much. I’ll have plenty of time later.

Janine: No, you won’t. You are headed for trouble if you don’t study. You could actually get kicked out of school!

Pete: Do you really think so?

Janine: Yes! It happened to me when I first started school here. I know what I am talking about.

Pete: Well, maybe you are right. I guess I am headed for failure if I don’t start studying more.

Janine: Of course I’m right! I’ll even help you.

Janine: Thanks, Janine!

Meaning: To travel or go toward some destination; to set something or someone on a course toward some situation or condition (used passively).
