New Year's Resolutions - Open mind

New Year's Resolutions - Open mind

January 1 – a new beginning and a chance to become a better person and get rid of habits you’re not too proud of. We asked our readers to tell us what they promise to do in 2014. Here are their answers…size=3>

1. No more 'yo'

My New Year's resolution is to stop answering the phone with "Yo". I don't think the people on the other end take me too seriously.

Crystal Leung, 16

2. Early to bed ... let's see

Throughout 2013, I was always working till midnight or even later. This year, I'm trying my best to be in bed by 11.30pm at the latest. But with exams just around the corner, I'll probably go back on my word.

3. Don't put it off

Not to procrastinate! I always want to work hard and make good use of my time, but the temptation of food, sleep and simply doing nothing is too huge. I think I'm even procrastinating right now by answering the "Top 10" instead of doing my homework!

Minnie Yip, 15

4. Courage to ride

I wanted to ride the Hair Raiser at Ocean Park, but I was frozen with fear (and the cold) and couldn't do it. I'll give myself a year to pluck up the courage to ride it.

Odessa Fung, 13

5. Junk the junk

My New Year's resolution is to stop eating junk food. But for that to happen, I'll have to eat all the junk food currently in the house so that it won't tempt me.

6. No squeezing

I resolve to stop squeezing my nose to make it longer because, obviously, it won't happen. But what will I do with my left hand when my right hand is doing homework?

7. No LOLlygagging

I am determined to speak more eloquently so I won't use internet abbreviations such as LOL and OMG. They are the cancer of the English language.

Jade Lam, 16

8. Stumbling ahead

My New Year's resolution is to stop being involved in more hobbies apart from ballet and procrastinating. I enrolled in an aerial dance class a few weeks ago, but I'll probably have to cancel my membership because falling and stumbling isn't what I had in mind.

9. Got to work out

To exercise at least half an hour a day! But my bed is so warm and my favourite TV show is on ...

Michele Chan, 14

10. Soooo tempting

I'm going to try to eat healthier foods ... and the smell of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies right now isn't helping.
