A New Year’s resolution is when a person vows to change something about their lifestyle or achieve a goal during the new year. Some people may vow to change their health for example or vow to get the job they’ve been wanting. New Year’s resolutions can be different and unique for every person. However some people completely disagree and think New Year’s resolutions are a complete waste of time.
Senior Jasmine Ortega says her New Year’s resolution is to, “get a boyfriend and lose weight.” She believes that resolutions are good for people to have and helps them set a goal and achieve it.
Sophomore Grace Wilbur says, “You shouldn’t have to wait till the new year to make and work on achieving a goal. It should be a year around thing.”
The struggle with making a New Year’s resolution goal is that in the beginning you are all excited and willing to work as hard as possible to achieve your goal. For example the gym is always packed on January 2nd because people have vowed to change their fitness and lifestyle but what you will notice is that as months go by the number of people that attend the gym will decrease.
Some people however believe New Year’s resolutions can be a great starting point for someone to change their life. They can be beneficial as long as you want to make a change.
Senior Megan Muller says, “My New Year’s resolution is to stop procrastinating.” She believes that resolutions can be very helpful and can help people get to where they want to be.
However Senior Kennedy Oliver has a different opinion on them. She believes, “They are false promises to yourself that you won’t end up keeping.
New Year’s resolutions are different for every person and everyone has a different opinion on whether or not they are worth it.
