New Years is the time of the year where people all around the nation try to make this upcoming year the best year yet, by making resolutions, like working out, starting a new diet, journaling, growing a relationship with someone, or overcoming a trial. When asked, the students and faculty at Wesleyan School what their New Year’s Resolutions were and how they planned to make their 2019 the best year yet.
With 2017 already in full swing, there is much to remember from previous years. In 2016, there were many memorable moments, songs, movies and events we will never forget. The start of a new year is a great time to look back on old memories that led people to where they are today. Looking back just 10 years, there are many movies, songs, and events that created memories we still think about.
With the coming of the New Year and the calendar refreshing, people are given the opportunity of a fresh start and a clean slate. With this new beginning comes a time of evaluating your last year’s self, creating goals and making changes to make the New Year the best yet.
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.”
