Students New Year’s resolutions for 2018

Tikloh Bruno Basaing, Sports Editor


My New Year’s resolution is to be more present in my family, regarding spending more time with my mom and my brothers. This means for me to spend less time alone in my room and to spend more time in the family areas in my house. I’m just going to try to do my normal everyday stuff that I might do in my room, but be surrounded by my family. I just hope I can get intimate with the people I am closest to and I think it will make me happier.



My new year’s resolution is to become gluten free for a while. This is because I’m lactose intolerant already and I get really severe stomach aches throughout the whole day just randomly, so I think if I go gluten-free I think it will help that problem. I doubt that I am going to last the whole year. I will probably last like three months but we’ll see how it goes. I don’t think it’s a very realistic goal at all, but I’m going to give it my go.



One of my new year’s resolutions is to take 15 percent of every paycheck that I get and put it into my savings account. I would like to start making wiser decisions with the money that I make, and I still think that doing this small act will benefit me a lot in the long run. I have heard that goals are easier to achieve when they are easier to quantify. That’s why I have decided upon a specific, set amount of 15 percent of every paycheck. I think this will make it much easier for me to follow this resolution.



This year I want to start making a lot more art. I feel like drawing and making art in different ways is really fun and relaxing for me, so I think it would be kind of healthy to get it into my daily routine. Also, unlike writing or other tasks I have to do in school, I feel like I can express myself a lot better and freely through just making art or drawing. Urbans always been a pretty safe space for people to express themselves, which is cool, but by just by putting pencil to paper it’s much easier, and feels like there is a lot less pressure. I’ve already started to do it and it feels better than wasting my free time being unproductive because I’m actually producing stuff.
