For the first time in a while I decided to make a New Year’s resolution for myself. This year, my goal is to spend less money on fast food. It’s so easy to get lazy at the end of the semester, especially during exams and buy food rather than making something at home, but I always regret it when I check my bank account later. It’s always easy at the start of the year, but the real challenge will be in April when the stress of exams and final assignments builds up again.
My New Year’s Resolution is to be able to do more pull-ups. Pull-ups are fun. I like them. They’re good for you. You should do some. I can do nine now. I want to be able to do 20. I’ll keep you posted.
My other New Year’s Resolution is to have more cats.
My resolution this year to dress better. The life of a Sport Management major, also in the sports section, is that your fashion sense and style revolves around which team is currently playing. Hopefully this year, which logo is in the middle of the Air Canada Centre floor will not be determining what I pick out of my wardrobe.
My resolution ought to be something about self care, self motivation, or eating less poutine. But it’s none of those. My goal this year isn’t going to be eating less or going to the gym more. It’s not something abstract like making more music or being my own person. I just want a Nintendo Switch. When all is said and done, what I really want for myself this year is to be Mario, throw a sombrero into the air, and then jump on that sombrero.
In all my years of making new year’s resolutions, I’ve learned one thing: I’m really bad at keeping them. I think the longest I’ve lasted is six days. So in light of my failure, I have chosen to avoid letting myself down by simply not making any formal resolutions this year. Having said that, after receiving some close to failing exam marks back, I will, at least theoretically, be putting more effort into doing some readings and starting assignments more than six hours before they are due
This year my New Year’s resolution is to always bring reusable bags to the grocery store. We have all heard how terrible plastic bags are for the environment, and how we need to stop using them, however, it is much more convenient to use a plastic bag from the store then to bring your own. However, this year I want to change this, I want to not only help the environment by bringing my own bags to the grocery store.
