At the start of every year, there is one topic of discussion that seems to be on everyone’s minds. While not everyone does make a New Year’s resolution there are many people who do. Even though many people do make a resolution, they do not follow through with them for that year.

Teacher Shanda Miller thinks that people run out of time and dedication to follow through with their resolution every year. Miller has previously made resolutions of getting in shape, but always seems to run out of time.

“I did not make one this year because I knew that I would not have the time to do it,” said Miller an English teacher and mother of two.

According to the article “Top Ten Commonly Broken New Year’s Resolution’s” Published by TIME, people commonly break the following: resolutions. The list, in order, includes:  Lose weight and get fit, quit smoking, learn something new, eat healthier and diet, get out of debt and save money, spend more time with family, travel to new places, be less stressed, volunteer, and to drink less.

Junior Marissa Brown has made her New Year’s resolution for this year to support her friends.

Even though Brown has never completed a resolution, she is determined to go through with this one to be a better friend.

“Everyone needs support, no matter what they are going through,” said Brown.

Teacher Amy Spunaugle said that she has never accomplished a New Year’s resolution, and she did not make a new one for this year. Spunaugle has made attempts at losing weight

“Life just gets busy, I usually stay with it until about April but then it just becomes a secondary priority,” said Spunaugle.
