Do you have any New Years’ resolutions planned? Are you wondering how that promise will follow through with COVID-19? No worries, we can talk about it! When it comes to looking for a New Years’ resolution, you typically fall back on how your year turned out. What you liked, what you didn’t like, what you want to change, and how to want to change it. For example, this semester online was extremely hard, even when you are a word harking student, you never know what to expect in such a new environment. I worked as hard as I could this semester and got the grades that I wanted going into finals. Many people do not understand how hard it was to stay motivated this semester and for that we need to just be proud of the people around us. My personal New Years’ resolution is that the transition from Spring semester to Summer semester is not only enjoyable, but a good end to Freshman year. We always need to hope for the best or look forward to the New Year, especially when times are tough like 2020. Wand we feel trapped.
What’s your take on everything happening this year? Do you still have hope? Are you just trying to get through it? I bet I can name everyone’s New Years’ resolutions right now, and they would be for COVID to end, for their family to be safe, to be able to go out, for a new president taking some action, and trying to think of some positive connotations that can come with the newfound, testing product vaccine. Maybe 2021 is not at all what we’re imagining it like, being as terrible as 2020, nothing progressing, just feeling sick of the new normal. We just have to learn how to persevere and hope for the best even when you don’t feel like there is not any hope to find. Here is a SOAR student’s take on it:
Christian Hernandez, Freshman
“Hey everyone, my name is Christian Hernandez, I am 14 turning 15 years old, I go to Soar High School, and my New Years’ resolution is to get to 1,000 subscribers before 2021 ends, I think 2021 is going to be worse than 2020. Not with COVID but just in general, I think mid 2021 the vaccine is going to be in full affect. I think it is going well because we have multiple vaccines that are being tested and have over a 90% success rate.”
