Answer: “I always say that I am going to do it, and then I don’t do it. It just doesn’t really feel that stable.”

Question: “Do you have anything to say to people setting goals for the new years?”

Answer: “I would say, just don’t feel too pressured to really keep your resolution. If you do that’s great, but if you don’t it’s not a big deal.”

Can Torumtay, 12:

Question: “What are some of your new year’s resolutions?”

Answer: “I don’t have any new years resolutions. I don’t believe in them and I think that they are a distraction”

Question: “Why do you think that they are a distraction?”

Answer: “I think it’s just to make people feel better about themselves, and most of the time they don’t stick to them. I think if you want to make a change, you can make it anytime, it doesn’t and shouldn’t have to be new years.”

Jacob Lindsey, 11:

Question: “What are some of your new year’s resolutions?”

Answer: “To get better grades, was mainly my only resolution”

“Do you have any tips for people trying to plan or stick to resolutions”

Answer: “I guess if it’s something physical, because I play soccer, I think it’s helpful to make a schedule. Also you can try to get someone else to help you stick to your goal like a family member.”

Question: “What are some of your new year’s resolutions?”

Answer: “So one of my new year’s resolutions is to get more sleep, I stay up way too late usually”

Question: “Do you have any tips for people trying to make resolutions or keep them?”

Answer: “I’d say that the new year only happens once a year so, if your gonna have a new year’s resolution, you should keep it and stick to it.”

Lily Erickson, 10:

Question: “What are some of your new year’s resolutions?”

Answer: “I don’t have any new year’s resolutions, I don’t believe in them.”

Question: “Why is it that you don’t believe in them?”

Answer: “You can make a resolution whenever, you want, it doesn’t need to be the new years to set goals and keep them. That’s why I don’t really believe in new years resolutions or have any.”
