The CC Weekly Weigh In: Our New Year’s Resolutions

newyears.jpgHello, 2009!

We didn’t start the year off in the best way (laying on the couch, chugging water and eating breakfast sandwiches while watching USC dominate on the field), but now we’re ready! And not hungover! And we couldn’t be more excited to get 2009 going. We have huge plans and goals and lists of things to do.

In the spirit of the new year, we decided to sit down and list our resolutions for 2009. We probably won’t keep ’em, but it’s the thought that counts, right?

John – UConn: I think the only New Year’s resolution I know I can keep is to diligently turn 21. Pounds can leave, come back and leave again, and friends are the same way, but drinking age is forever.

Leah – Ryerson University: Stop dating, getting involved with, and/or having sex with douchebags. 2009 will be a douchebag free year!

Elise – UCLA: No Diet Coke!!!!

Elizabeth – UC Berkeley: To keep running for fitness health, and wellbeing – not weight loss.

Carly – Grinnell: To get at least one step closer (whatever that might be) to becoming a pastry chef.

Elizabeth – UA Hunstville: To find the easiest, most slacker way possible to make tons of money.

Lauren – University of Michigan: Get out and flirt with boys more. What? I like to make resolutions I can keep.

Kelly – UMass: I’m quitting smoking. For real this time.

Sara C – Fordham: It sounds crazy, but I want to run the New York City Marathon. At the very least, I’ll be running the half-marathon in April, because I already signed up. Oh boy!

Alex – Lakehead University: To be more grateful. I’m starting by writing down 5 things I’m grateful for everyday.

Noa – CU Boulder: Read more non-school books.

Erica – Kent State: I really want to spend 2009 doing more & thinking less!

Beata: I never make New Year’s resolutions because I always forget them two days later. If I did make one, mine would be to make time for all those things I would do if only I had more time…

Suzanne – Tulane: I want to save some money. And I have to, considering I probably won’t be able to get a job next year.
