I Asked 10 People What Their New Year’s Resolution Is

New Year’s resolutions. Sounds good in theory, but never really works. At the beginning of each year, everyone makes a list of things they’re going to do differently or how they’re going to improve themselves. “New year, new me.” And how long do most people keep them up? For me, it’s usually a few months maximum. Ultimately, change is hard.

I asked 10 people what their main New Year’s resolution is and how long they think they will stick to it.

1. “I need to stop drinking so much. I want that ripped summer bod. I’m going to try to stick to it, but I am just going to set it and hope for the best.”

2. “I want to prioritize a healthier lifestyle, ya feel me? No more staying out till 4 AM every weekend and sleeping with my makeup. It’ll probably last a week. Maybe more. Like a month max. I don’t know, man. I suck at this.”

3. “Be nicer. I need to gossip less, be less judgmental, and less bitter. I hope it goes well.”

4. “Go to the gym as much as possible. I feel so good when I work out during break, so I need to do that in school too. It’ll make me feel better about all those midnight snacking I do. I hope it lasts at least a quarter.”

5. “I want to make more friends and more of a diverse group. I need to put myself out there and really approach people with a smile and hope for the best.”

6. “I need to get a summer internship. It better be successful. And spend less money.”

7. “I want to be more confident about myself. I can’t keep putting myself down and thinking that I’m not good enough for something, or someone. Confidence goes a long way and it sets a good first impression. Even if you don’t know shit, you can just be confident and pretend you know it and you’ll be good. I’m tired of being shy and expecting everything and everyone to come to me.”

8. “I want to break guys’ hearts. I need to be that hot and amazing, where I have the power to do that. But also treat the genuine guys with respect and kindness. But break the assholes’ hearts because they don’t deserve me. I better be breaking hearts all year long.”

9. “I want to lose weight. Not just to impress other people, but to be healthy and feel good about my body. It’s really hard and it seems like it’s my resolution every single year, but I need it to happen this year. I’m almost 21 and I can’t keep putting it off. So I guess I need to stop procrastinating too.”

10. “I need to ask him out. He’s graduating soon and he might even be studying abroad next quarter. Even if he says no, it’s not the worst. He’ll graduate and go back wherever and nobody will have to know. I first need to talk to him more to even see if he’s single, but by the end of the school year, the question better be popped.”

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
