Among the confetti, noise makers and clinking champagne glasses, there is one fact about ringing in the new year that cannot be denied: the resolutions are hard to keep. However, year after year people continue to make them, filled with hope that they can use the changing date as a way to better their lives. This year, I have chosen to monitor the resolutions of four people over the next few weeks in attempt to help them keep their goals.

Kristen Morgan- freshman

The resolution: “I’m going to try to drink one soda a week for a few months, then eventually give up drinking soda altogether.”

Estimated time it will be practiced: Two or three months.

Lara Breithaupt- sophomore

The resolution: “I want to finish at least three (practice) Calculus AP tests because I really need to.”

Estimated time it will be practiced: Until the end of January.

Olivia Schmitt-Metz- junior

The resolution: “I’m going to be basic and try to exercise and go to the gym more, but who knows if it will actually happen.”

Estimated time it will be practiced: Until the end of summer.

Malachi Britton- senior

The resolution: “I’m going to try to spend more time with my family and take more showers.”

Estimated time it will be practiced: A few weeks.

 

From everyone in the Optimist family, have a safe and happy New Year!
