New people, experiences and year

December 17, 2018

As the holiday season draws to a close, most people have recovered from their “food comas” from Thanksgiving and have disposed of all the wrapping paper from Christmas. At that point, everyone is looking ahead to New Year’s celebrations and the New Year’s resolutions that few are able to keep.

I know I sound cliche when I say this, but I truly feel 2019 could be the best year yet.

Being a senior in high school and moving on to the next chapter in my life is something many seniors, including myself, look forward to. New people, new friends and new experiences are something I can’t wait for, and I am hopeful they will all make my 2019 the best year yet.

As far as New Year’s resolutions go, I usually don’t make many, or any at all. I haven’t ever stuck to any that I have made in the past, and I’m sure a lot of people can relate to this.

Props to anyone who can stick to their New Year’s resolutions because many people don’t make it further than the end of the month.

That being said, I do believe that setting resolutions is a good practice. The start of a new year is a good time for people to reflect on themselves and their lives and set goals for what they want to achieve and who they want to be. If only someone could find a way to keep these resolutions throughout the whole year ...

I hope everyone has enjoyed the holiday season and continues to find time to spend with family and friends. Enjoy your 2019 and let it be your best year yet.
