3… 2… 1… Happy New Year! A lot of changes come with changing the last number of your calendar.  But do people actually change?


Junior at Lebanon High School, Alaine Brown, does not have a New Year’s Resolution this year because she does not believe she will be able to keep up with it.  Brown had a resolution one year to not eat chocolate and found she does not like chocolate as much.


“I do not believe in New Year’s Resolutions because people cannot change that fast.  The only thing that changes is the last number on the date,” said Brown.


Jaelie Mitchell, sophomore at LHS, has a New Year’s Resolution this year to workout at least twice a week and to have more positive vibes.  Mitchell has never had a New Year’s Resolution but wanted to start working out, so she figured to start fresh this new year.


“I think if you put the work towards your New Year’s Resolution, you will be able to accomplish your resolution,” said Mitchell.


Sophomore Calista Cole believes New Year’s Resolutions need to be realistic, but it is good to have a good outlook on life.


“My New Year’s Resolution this year is to be happier, have fun in high school and to surround myself with good people,”said Cole.


Whether you have a resolution this year or not, you can still always have a positive outlook at life.
