New Year’s New Promises
By Alissa Allison
Each New Year it is a tradition to get rid of the old and bring in the new. Many people choose to make a New Year’s resolution to them. A New Year’s resolution is a commitment to yourself and or others to better yourself as a person or improve in an aspect of your life. The first day of the year people will make the decision to stop doing something bad or start doing something good. For example students might choose to be more organized, be a better friend, make a sports team, lose weight. Bad things to stop doing for a New Year’s resolution could be eating less fast food, quit procrastinating, or stop wasting money. A New Year’s resolution is a great tradition to carry on. Senior, Abbey Felix said, “My New Year’s resolution is stop spending money on stupid things. Now that I’m going to college it will be important to save my money. I’m going to try my best to keep this resolution all year.” It is a new start to a New Year. At this time everybody is making a promise to be better. Even though it is a commitment for the whole year many people will keep the promise for a few months and then it will fade away. It is a great idea, but this year challenge yourself to really make an important resolution and hold true to it for the entire year, and on.
