New Year’s Day rings in a fresh calendar, hellish hangovers and often unattainable resolutions. While the calendar and hangovers still exist, I’ve found the number of this year’s resolutions dwindles. Is the New Year’s resolution a dying futile tradition?
“People make fun of them. They have become so cliché.” – Zach Bartsch, freshman (Left)
“The gyms are crowded for the first month and then they die down.” – Jesse Saxberg, freshman (Right)
“I haven’t really thought about it yet. Last year I wanted to eat healthy but it only lasted two weeks. It gets to be too expensive.” – Brooke Feltman, junior (Left)
“Everyone tries to work out. But after a month or so, school starts to become more of a priority to me.” – Naomi Meier, junior (Right)
“People don’t do them anymore. For me, New Year’s is not an excuse. I need a bigger reason to change.” – Riley Banick, junior
