Parkland’s New Year Resolutions

Jen Hernandez, Editor of Entertainment and Features

As the new year settles in, many Americans take part in the tradition of beginning a new positive practice, changing a negative trait, accomplishing a personal goal, or simply improving their lives. A new year’s resolution is most common in the Western and parts of the Eastern Hemisphere; it is a decision to do or not do something to reach a goal or break a habit. Parkland’s very own students and staff made their resolutions and here they are:

 

Nate Carrasco: “To graduate and get out of Pennsylvania.”

 

Jeanne Boateng: “To not have to take finals.”

 

Tyler Bartman: “To be nicer to my friends.”

 

Aidan Kingdom: “To learn how to hula hoop.”

 

Ashlyn Cope: “Learn to love my life and the people in it.”

 

Rush Jimenez: “To choose a career path.”

 

Jonathan Guth: “To do my homework.”

 

Megumi Takahashi: “To de-stress.”

 

Mrs. Fastenberg: “To get more sleep.”

 

Mrs. Abdelaal: “To live in the moment.” 

 

Ultimately, making a New Year’s resolution is a wonderful idea, as it means taking time to evaluate life over the past year and figure out what one would like to see change during the upcoming year.
