9 New Years Resolutions Everyone Should Have

9 New Years Resolutions Everyone Should Have

Let's hope we can keep them.

Christmas has passed and we only have roughly a week until the new year; and as we reflect on all the things we did or accomplished this year, we are also thinking about what we want to do in the new year. New Year’s resolutions, whether big or small, are things almost everyone participates in. Unfortunately, we don’t keep all of our resolutions, but even keeping to one makes us feel some form of accomplishment. Here are some resolutions to make this year.

1. Save more money.

After bills and rent, send half of your spending money to your savings account. It’s a good trick to saving your cash.

2. Try something new.

Try foods you’ve never had before, try watching a show you wouldn’t normally watch, do something you wouldn’t normally do. You could try something small, big, or gradually work your way up.

3. Learn to do something new.

You could learn how to knit, learn to draw, or you could take classes to earn certifications in your work field. There are all sorts of possibilities.

4. Write more.

Writing is a good way to relieve stress and to let out your frustrations. So if you choose to do creative writings or just write about your day, make it a goal to write more.

5. Buy a car.

Be able to afford to by your own car and not one someone gave you.

6. Complete the 2018 reading challenge.

Who wouldn’t want to read that many books? This sounds more like a dream come true.

7. Don’t stay up as late.

Try to not to stay up until 3:00 - 4:00 a.m. anymore.

8. Get up earlier.

This should be easier if you don’t stay up as late.

9. Don’t procrastinate.

This is the ultimate goal for the year, and the resolution we probably won’t keep.

Everyone enjoys a prank

I've never been very good at pranking people, so with April Fools coming soon, I've started doing my research on what pranks I can pull on my friends. Pranking your friends can be a lot of fun for everyone involved. I think I've found a few pretty good pranks to get my friends this year. I hope you'll take advantage of this April Fools and also get your friends.

1.) Change your friends autocorrect

2.) Wrap their bed in saran wrap

3.) Give them a caramel onion

4.) Paint their soap with clear nail polish

5.) Cover their room with post-it notes

6.) Fill their rooms with red solo cups

7.) Put fake bugs all around their house for them to discover

8.) Change their alarms so they wake up in the middle of the night

9.) Give them donuts filled with mayonnaise


10.) Oreos filled with Toothpaste

11.) Tape a fish to their back

Be like the French and tape fishes to peoples back. An oldie but a goodie and you'll look cultured

Remember that April Fools is all about fun. No one should get hurt because of a prank. Go out there and spread some joy!
