Students should make achievable new years resolutions

December 20, 2022

Every new year, social media fills with people showing their new year resolutions and how they are going to better themselves in the incoming year. All these resolutions have the same general theme: get in shape, eat better, read more, etc. But it seems people usually give up on these goals to better themselves about two months into the year, saying it was too difficult to make a change.

The CDC says that those 13-18 should be getting...

Indulging in buttered rolls, mashed potatoes and turkey is a tradition for my family on Thanksgiving. Every year, my relatives gather around the table, give thanks for our blessings and dive into the delicious food.
