New Year’s Resolutions?

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!

  1. For a long time now, I’ve not been a supporter of New Year’s resolutions. It doesn’t make sense to wait until the first of the year to start improving oneself. I’m a big believer in continuous improvement and have written about it in my blog here. Continuous improvement is a journey, one small step at a time and can and should be started whenever required. Would love to hear what our high school students think about continuous improvement!

  2. I’m not surprised by the answers you got, Vic. Not really.

    I, personally, always make this REALLY LONG LIST… None of which I’ll share, this time round, except for my aspiration to finish my series before the half-way mark of 2014 is up. Yeah. The rest, are, well. Numerous?
