We visited Penns cafeterias and asked food servers to take a moment to tell us about the New Years resolutions they made and if theyve been keeping them. A hard-working group barely able to squeeze in a moment to talk to us, they did manage to let us know that although some have already called it quits, and watched their resolve disappear as fast as this mornings breakfast, most are still cooking, maintaining their resolutions for a brighter new year.
I dont want to cuss any more. I used to cuss a lot but I want to completely stop. So far, Ive been successful.
Im working hard on keeping up with all of my resolutions. The only one I havent been able to keep up with is my smoking habit. I tried to quit, but it hasnt worked. I still smoke.
My goal this year is to treat everybody, everyday, as they should be treated. Being nice shouldnt be a temporary thing. Im doing well with it.
My resolutions are going pretty bad. I havent kept any of them. My main two were to try to quit smoking and lose weight. I still smoke and I havent lost any weight. Im still bad, too.
My resolutions are going fine. I want to be a better person, and I really think I am.
Im making a lot of changes. Im going back to school and learning a new language, Japanese. Things so far seem to be going really well.
Im trying to control my temper. Anger management is what Im focusing on. Everything has been going pretty well so far. My new motto is to just walk away.
I am going to pray to God and have him help me take it day by day. I have been praying to him everyday for his help and guidance.
I have to start working out again and get back into shape. I had surgery on my shoulders which caused me to stop working out. Now in the new year I plan on starting and looking good.
I want to be more kind to people. Kindness is really all that matters.
