New year, new you: What Leigh students are doing for their resolutions

Skye Blank, Staff Writer

It’s the start of a new year, which means a start to new and better things, hopefully.

The time of the year where everyone tries to be better, or tries to start something new.

Forms response chart. Question title: Do you have any new years resolutions? . Number of responses: 61 responses.

The most common New Year’s resolution is starting a diet or not procrastinating on school work. But it’s 2019 now, how creative can people get with their new year’s resolutions.

Sophomore Anna Gilyanna says, “I would like to help my community more by doing more activities aimed at helping those who have disabilities in my community and by helping out the school in general. Another one of my resolutions is to have better time management skills.”

Freshman Annabelle Solmon also says, “My New Year’s resolution this year is to volunteer as much as I possibly can. Help anyone or anything that needs my help.”

Seven people that took my survey said they wanted to become more social or make new friends. Two girls, Isabel Blanchard and Elise Pham both want to start journaling.

“I resolved to keep a journal and make entries daily” says Elise Pham.

“I want to document my life so I can look back on it later, so I’m trying to write down something that happened everyday” states, Isabel Blanchard.

Forms response chart. Question title: If you don't have any resolutions then are you planning on picking up on any hobbies?. Number of responses: 30 responses.

Out of the 25 people that said they didn’t have any resolutions for the new year, only 8 of those people said they might start a new hobby, and only 3 people were for sure about starting a new hobby.

So what are some hobbies people are picking up in 2019?

Sophomore Elijah Laker says he wants to start an interest in art and music. While Freshman Eve O’Neill is going to start to bake a variety of new things. Freshman Christopher Do wants to start badminton in the spring.

Senior Fiona Le declares, “Why wait for the year to start to start doing something? Be rebellious and make a goal in May.”

So maybe this year let’s be different. Let’s not wait until next year to start that diet we all have been wanted to take a apart in.  Let’s take action and do it right when we feel the urge to do it, instead of waiting for the new year.
