In a last minute rush brought on my forgetfulness caused by fear of an English 30 diploma exam coming the following Monday, I attempted to question CCH students at random about their New Year’s resolutions. I found something curious. Barely anyone put any thought into the yearly ritual. Not even actively deciding to not make resolutions, folks didn’t even thinking about the process at all. I’d say that…two out of five people I asked said something along the lines of “Oh. Right. Those. Didn’t even.”
I can’t say I’m surprised though. I haven’t made a New Year’s resolution in yeeeeeeeaaars. I think the last one I made (I’m not saying I followed through on it or not) was to clean my room more often. What do others out there in Catholic Central think? Are you surprised at the lack of resolutions? Did anyone make a real resolution this year? (Real as opposed to something like, say, building a plane.)
Leave your thoughts in the comments!
Happy New Year’s, everyone!
