New Year’s Resolutions from Local Kids

cover.issue8

Let’s face it. Once you’re an adult—and especially by the time you reach middle age—some of the shine will have worn off of the New Year’s Resolution tradition.

 

Don’t get us wrong. Resolutions can be a useful tool—and when you’re embarking on a quest to change your life, an essential one—but after years of leaving broken resolutions in your wake, it can be a little harder to muster up that old enthusiasm for the annual round of long-term goals. Okay, maybe that’s just us.


But this year, we wanted to change that. So we asked some local 2nd and 3rd graders what they want out of the next year.

 

Cute? Undoubtedly. Endearing? Absolutely! Motivating? You tell us!

 

Here’s what these kids want in 2014:

 

Jade

My New Year’s Resolution is to work hard and become very smart.

 

Alexander S.

My New Year’s Resolution is to be better with my handwriting and listening.

 

Adison

My New Year’s Resolution is to be a good big sister.

 

Sasha

My New Year’s Resolution is to design and create dresses.

 

Kate

My New Year’s Resolution is to travel to different places with my family and become a faster reader.

 

Ethan

My New Year’s Resolution is to build the tallest Lego skyscraper and put it in a Lego magazine.

 

Lucas

My New Year’s Resolution is to be the best person I can be.
