Why New Year's Resolutions Are Important

I'm challenging you to challenge yourself this upcoming year

Why New Year's Resolutions Are Important

At the end of the year, it is common for people to make New Year’s Resolutions. Some people often opt out of this tradition because it can be a challenge to keep these resolutions throughout the New Year, and no one wants to feel defeated.

New Year's resolutions can also feel silly at times. I believe that it is important for all of us to embark on this challenge this upcoming year.

Why are New Year’s resolutions important? Coming up with resolutions forces us to reflect on our actions during the past year. When you decide to make a resolution, you are deciding that you need to change something about yourself. This self-reflection is very important for everyone.

Once we decide that we need to change something, creating a resolution allows us to challenge ourselves to change in the upcoming year.

Every resolution is important, whether you decide to have a healthier lifestyle, spend more time with your siblings, or become more committed to your schoolwork.

This New Year, I challenge you all to challenge yourselves by reflecting on this past year and committing to a New Year’s resolution. Happy 2017!

We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
