Everyone has made one once in their life: a resolution.
A resolution is a commitment that an individual makes to a project or the reforming of a habit, often a lifestyle change that is generally interpreted as advantageous. It is basically something you want to accomplish in your life.
A New Year’s resolution is often one of these. At the beginning of a new year everyone will make a resolution to change something about his or her life and about what they do in their life. It could be anything. It could be to be kinder to people. It could be for you to relax. It could be anything you want it to be.We interviewed some people on what their New Year’s resolutions are and if they’re keeping up with them.
Aban Alsulami was our first target. “So Aban, as a well-known eighth grader, what is your New Year’s resolution?”
“Well, to be honest, my New Year’s resolution was actually to be kinder to people. To be more open to people.”
We asked if he was keeping up with his resolution. His answer: yes.
Good job, Aban!
Next, we interviewed Dima Elhorr. Dima was asked the same question: “What is your New Year’s resolution.
She answered, to make the 2012 Unis volleyball team. Well, Dima, it’s your lucky day because tryouts are today! Good luck!Statistics show that 25 percent of all people who make a New Year’s resolution drop it within the first week.
Mrs. Frank, you’re busted!
Mrs. Frank, a middle school art teacher, made a resolution. It was to pack lunches instead of buying the $3 salads from the cafeteria every day.
She failed, she admits. “I just didn’t have time, I’m so used to buying lunches.”
Well, Mrs. Frank, maybe next year or tomorrow or next month. It doesn’t matter when you do it, as long as you try. Everybody can make one and if they keep their mind to it, they can succeed!
