Why do we make New Year resolutions? Perhaps it’s for the sense of competition among friends or the thrill of drama within us to achieve pride. Whatever the reason may be, it is still a tradition that has affected billions over the years, and it shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. Rather accomplished or failed, these resolutions can sure make for a good story.

Amber Rolland says that her big resolution for 2010 is to stop eating sweets. This means no cake, cookies, chocolate, candy, etc. “Not too confident on this one, especially because my house is filled with fudge rounds, oatmeal crème pies, chocolate chip cookies, and everything else I’m not supposed to eat,” said Rolland.

Katherine Clowers is aiming to lose 35 pounds by May 13.

Cesar Marroquin has the simple goal to lose weight and to be healthy.

Morgan Barnes set the goal to be nicer to people and not so quick-tempered.

Calvin Wallace is going to try to make all A’s.

Adrienne Penix is going to try to talk to more people. “I usually stick with a close group of friends and I’m really gonna try to make more friends before my senior year is up,” says Penix.

New Year’s is a time of celebrating and of making resolutions. Some consider it the best time of the year since it is a fresh start.
