New Year’s resolutions are some of the biggest downfalls on goal keeping. The list is made and it is forgotten. In some cases, a check mark might be placed beside “eat healthier” or “do homework before five.”
Three Dover Area School High School 10th-graders were asked whether they make New Year’s resolutions and, if they do, what is their resolution for 2012?
Emma Yinger said, “I make them when I feel it’s necessary, like when I have a big goal I want to accomplish. This year my New Year’s resolution is to place at the Keystone International Livestock Expo horse show with with my horse, Mr. Showboat.”
Lauren Elicker said, “I do usually make New Year’s resolutions, they’re like goals for the better. I usually try to fulfill them, but forget half-way through the year. I should probably write them down.” Lauren’s New Year’s resolution for this year is “probably trying to find the good that comes out in everything and focus on the positive and tying to inspire people to do the same.”
Paige Rehm is not one of the resolutionists. When asked whether she makes New Year’s resolutions, she quickly answered with, “Psh, no they never last! I quit drinking soda, but that’s the only one that stayed. I’ve made other ones, but they never last.”
