Shortly after the Fall semester ended and during the holiday break, students and staff at PSU Hazleton were asked if they would make a New Year’s resolution(s).
Do you plan to make a New Year’s resolution? The quick responses:
Anthony Trezza- Read more
Heather Schlenker- Work out regularly
Shawn Perkiss- Gain 20 pounds of muscle
Shakira Laing- Stop cursing
Jamie Hock- Maintain a 3.9 GPA
Michael Slodysko- Do better during the semester
The longer comments:
Megan McGee, a junior from Milford, said she tries to make resolutions each year but none have really been successful. She hopes this year her resolution “to be successful” will work.
Jackie Jackowski, a sophomore from Jim Thorpe, said her resolution is to eat healthier and go to the gym more often. In the past, I did well for the first few months of the new year but eventually grew tired of my resolution and gave up.
Cynthia Valenzuela, a sophomore from Las Vegas, NV said she would like to have her hair down to her waist, lose weight and become a billionaire. Since all are time consuming, “I usually end up just giving up.”
Meg Grebski, a senior from Pringle, said she did not make one this year and can’t remember making any in the past. She said if she had made one it was probably to eat healthy and do better in school.
Jon Trosky, IST instructor, said becoming an expert with his new MAC, getting into the gym more often and stop eating carbs.
Ryan Aten from Student Affairs said he doesn’t make resolutions nor did he remember ever making one. But he smiled and said one of his goals which he knows he will keep in 2013 is to head to Dick’s Sporting Goods to buy stuff.
Here are some funny resolutions according to happywink.org, a site which says it is the Society for the Confluence of World Festivals and Celebrations:
·Just for today, I will not sit in my living room all day in my nightgown. Instead, I will move my computer into the bedroom.
·I will do less laundry and use more deodorant.
·I will try to figure out why I really need nine e-mail addresses.
·I will think of another password other than “password.”
·I will stop considering other people’s feelings when they so obviously don’t consider mine. (This means that if a smelly person sits next to me I will tell them they stink!)
Now for the resolutions some people would like to make and most likely keep!
·Spend more time watching TV/movies.
·Chat more over the internet/phone.
·Gain weight, like at least 30 pounds.
·Stop exercising. Waste of time.
·Drink. Then, drink some more.
·Start being superstitious.
·Spend less time at work.
·Stop bringing lunch from home. Eat out more often.
·Take up a new habit like smoking or gambling.
·Shop more, laugh a lot and cover all mirrors.
