Students Question New Year’s Resolutions


Juniors pledge to drink more water as a part of their resolutions.

If you haven’t been still writing “14” when you date your papers, you are among those who realize that is it a new year. The new year means a fresh start to set goals for yourself in some aspect whether in the creative, personal, or athletic realms. Unfortunately, as Mrs. Dougherty reported in our first 2015 Morning Meeting, most new year’s resolutions are not accomplished.

Despite the gloomy outlook on resolutions, some students still set them.

“My new year’s resolution is to drink more water,” says senior Jordan Towsley.

“My new year’s resolution to be healthy andĀ  eat healthier, get A’s in all of my classes, and be optimistic,” says sophomore Charles Hayes.

Many faculty also have resolutions.

“My new year’s resolution is to relax, let go, have fun and be in the moment,” says history teacher Mr. Sommers.

“My new year’s resolution is to get out more and have a social life,” says history teacher Mr. Bernsen.

Some students don’t believe in resolutions at all.

“I don’t believe in new year’s resolutions. I don’t like giving them a label because people don’t try,” says junior Miller Condrack.

“I don’t have one because new years shouldn’t make you want to change yourself,” says junior M’Balia Bangoura.

If you don’t want to change yourself with any resolutions, just make sure you stay fabulous.
