The New Year offers a fresh start with a new beginning, new resolutions, and 365 days to fill with unforgettable memories. A tradition around this time of year is having a New Year’s Resolution– an intention to better oneself when entering into the New Year.

“An empty promise,” Emily Shy, Senior, says are the first words to come to mind when hearing the words “New Year’s Resolution.” Senior Shivani Patel defines a New Year’s Resolution as “something that you would like to change about yourself in the upcoming year.”

The task of accomplishing a New Year’s Resolution is often inconsistent and short term.“I accomplished my resolution from last year, which was to spend more time with more people. This year I want to make smarter choices with my life pertaining to people and school,” Patel said.

Opinions on New Year’s Resolutions heavily fluctuate from person to person depending on character. “I don’t really like New Year’s Resolutions because it makes you sound like you need a holiday to make yourself a better person,” Darby Meadows, senior, said. “It’s a little promise I make to myself in hopes of trying to be a little better than the year before, even though I normally break it January 2,” Haley Watts, senior, said.

For seniors, 2017 is a transition. Graduation is near which means college is quickly approaching. For juniors, 2017 is the beginning of the end. The first year of MSMS comes to an end while the second and last year begins. The New Year is an important reminder that one chapter has closed and now there are blank pages to fill.
