Brookville’s New Year’s Resolutions

At the end of each year, individuals set resolutions for themselves in the upcoming year. The resolutions range from getting in shape, to doing better in school, to a change in behavior.

“My New Year’s resolution is to work harder and turn in more school work. To get into higher or more advanced colleges, you have to get good grades,” Sophomore Angela Bowels said. “In 2017, I am looking forward to a calmer year and getting back on track. I am also happy about getting my sophomore year over with,” she said.  

Last year, there were mixed emotions about whether or not 2016 was a good year. Each new year, everyone has a chance to make the upcoming year better than the last. Miss Sharman thought her 2016 was a rough year but is ready for the new year.  

“I don’t have any resolutions because I feel like you can change anytime you want. I usually think of resolutions around my birthday. 2016 was a rough year  for me, my parents split up and I had to learn how to coach basketball and teach at the same time. It was a chaotic year for me but there were some good times too. I love my friends, family and students so I am looking forward to a new year. In 2017, I would like to be overall happy  because last year was an emotional year,” she said.

2016 was a year of violence and hate, but there were good times as well.  

“My New Year’s resolutions is to cut soda and out of my diet and train for soccer. I want to improve in school as well. I think 2016 was good and bad because a lot of people died. We also had economic trouble. In 2017 I would like to have life improvements. I am looking forward to junior year and getting closer to graduating when I’m a senior,” Brooks said.

Harry Reed is ready for the world to get better this year.

“I don’t believe in making resolutions because why would you pick one day to start your year? I think personally my 2016 was a good year because both of my daughters graduated college. In 2017, I am looking forward to a lot of short term and long term goals. I also hope that the world as a whole is better,” Mr. Reed said.
