New Year's Resolutions

Most of us do it every year; we make resolutions for the new year. But how many people actually keep their resolutions for the whole year? I bet more people get struck by lightning than keep their resolutions, but that is just a guess. So this year I was tempted to make a resolution that I could actually keep. I thought of being nice to people, but that sounded exhausting and I didn't think that resolution would last 1 day. Therefore, I came up with a list of new year's resolution that I would be tempted to keep.

  • Spend more time watching TV/movies.
  • Chat more over phone/internet.
  • Leisure read more.
  • Procrastinate more.
  • Start being superstitious.
  • Avoid children more often.
  • Hibernate more.
  • I will grow my hair.
  • Just for today, I will not sit in my living room all day in my PJs, instead I will move my computer into my bedroom.
But in all seriousness my new year's resolution is to avoid fast-food restaurants, and so far I have kept it. Below are some new year's resolution for kids and adults and some statistics on resolutions. Happy New Years Everyone!
