“New Year, New Me”

Katie Priest and Maggie Doheny

With 2016 coming to a close, it’s almost over which means it is time to start thinking about New Year’s resolutions. It is a great opportunity to make self-improvements in the new year. These changes could range from trying new activities to making a new fitness routine everyday. Students at Sacred Heart are excited to see what 2017 brings.

Creating personal goals is common, but maintaining those goals can become a struggle. However, some Valkyries are willing to give it a try with these resolutions:

  • Junior Alex Haliburton said, “I want to get in shape for my New Year’s resolution.”
  • “I should eat healthier,” said freshman Annie Thompson.
  • Sophomore Kate Harty said, “To eat less candy and more real food when I’m hungry.”

SHA students are always trying to be successful in their schoolwork. See that through these students’ resolutions:

  • Freshman Allie Cornett said, “I need to get better grades.”
  • Senior Kaelin Gentile said, “To not slack on my senior year.”
  • Senior Lizzy Pass said, “Decide on a college.”

Other SHA students have different resolutions than the typical fitness or school-related goals. Here are some resolutions that you don’t hear everyday:

  • Sophomore Ava Medley said, “I should floss my teeth.”
  • “My resolution is to brush my hair, because I don’t do that,” said senior Christian Davis.
  • Junior Maddie Hall said, “mine is to wear more jewelry.”

The faculty of Sacred Heart is looking forward to a chance to make improvements in their lives as well. Here are some New Year’s resolutions from the faculty:

  • “I want to read a book every month.” said Ms. Ferch.
  • “Make my bed every morning,” said Mrs. Swiergosz.
  • After some thought, Sr. Lorna said “Maybe I should try to smile more at lunchtime.”

No matter what you want to achieve, establishing a New Year’s resolution and sticking to it is a task worth trying. Share your New Year’s resolutions with The Rune on Twitter @SHANews_Lou.
