New Years Resolutions

2019 is creeping up on us fairly quickly. With just under a month left of 2018, people are scrambling to get their resolutions out of the way so they can strive for new ones in the upcoming year.

I asked a few people what their resolutions for 2018 were, if they have completed them, if they have any new ones for 2019, and why it is important for them to have resolutions.

What were you resolutions for 2018?                                                                                             I had a couple of serious ones. I wanted to lose 30 pounds because I was gaining to much weight at a fast rate. I also wanted to do something that I was always afraid to do. Going on a roller coaster. 

Did you follow through with any of those resolutions? 

I actually did both. I lost 45 pounds and I went on a roller coaster. It turns out that I love them and I went a few times this year. I’m actually really proud of myself.

What are your resolutions for 2019?

..Well I haven’t really thought about it you know. I guess it would be to eat healthier and start going to the gym a little bit more. I also want to smoothly transfer  into SF State and just have a good time in my last years in college.

Why is it important for you to have resolutions?

It honestly gives me something to do for the whole year. And when I actually follow through with them it makes me feel really good about myself as a person and accomplished.

What were your resolutions for 2018?

I wanted to graduate high school with good grades and have a good first semester at SFSU. They’re very simple but those were the things that I wanted for myself.

Did you accomplish them?

Yes I did and it was pretty easy. I graduated with honors and my semester went by quickly and was great.

What are your resolutions for 2019?

I want to really learn how to manage my time wisely and I want to learn sign language.

Is it important for you to have resolutions?

In a way yeah because it helps remind me to look after myself and to do something good for me.

New Years resolutions are important for many people and are what keep them grounded. For most, give them something to do throughout the year and makes them feel accomplished.
