My New Year’s Resolutions

By Aubrey Cisneros

Hello! For me, New Years is scary, going into a new year, you never know what’s going to happen! But in all honesty— I love it! New Year, new me! Am I right? Here are some New Year’s resolutions I have made: Pray more, get better at math, go to Taos Academy, meet new people, be the manager for volleyball, basketball, and track. Hope you like my New Year resolutions!
