New Year’s resolutions usually maintain a bad reputation. Typically by Jan. 7 these resolutions are long gone and everyone is back to being their normal mediocre selves, the same they were last year. “I have never fulfilled a New Year’s Resolution I have made in the past,” Faculty Fellow, Claire Coward said, “One year I resolved to never look in the mirror, but I missed myself too much after two hours.”
