January Group Feature: Students and staff tell us their New Year’s resolutions for 2022
Sanya Gupta (’24)
"My New Year's resolution is to spend more time with my family [and] take better care of my dog. [I will take better care of my dog] by taking her on walks instead of making my brother do it. I also want to make more time for my friends."
Kai Warner, Spanish III teacher
"Normally I don't make resolutions, but I do love [setting] goals. Usually, the goal that I have every year is to read three books. I also like to try to learn something new each year and this year I'm learning about equity and grading to become a better teacher."
Sanjay Ravishankar (’25)
"My main New Year's resolution for 2022 is to walk every day because I read that walking is really beneficial to your studies. It stimulates the brain and also it is a part of exercise that's not that high intensity."
Chris Murphy, regular and AP World History teacher
"I am going to try and eat healthier because during the holidays I ate a lot of red meat. I didn't eat as many fruits and vegetables so in the new year I'm planning to eat a little healthier."
Erik Scherer, school librarian
"I only have one resolution this year, [which is] to eat in a healthier way. I am going to try to reduce the amount of snacks I eat, like cereal and potato chips but also eat more veggies, fruits, and meats."
Yumiko Florando (’22)
"My main New Year's resolution is to eat more mindfully, like tracking my sugar intake and my calorie intake. [Also] making sure that I actually want to eat food instead of just eating whenever, especially when I'm distracted like doing homework or watching TV."
