Another year is about end. The time has come for us to say goodbye to all the bad memories and happenings that we encountered this year 2012. And as 2013 gets nearer, people are looking forward to a new life and new hope. At this point, people are now preparing for their New Year's resolution.

After 5 years of not entering in college because of eye problem, finally, Melvin Sta Ana will be back to school wherein his New Year’s resolution is to do his best to finish his studies.

“Simula 2013 ay mag-aaral na ulit ako sa college at isa sa New Year's resolution ko ay sisikapin kong makatapos ng pag-aaral,” stated Melvin, 23 years old.

To become a responsible person, to save money and to improve one’s lifestyle are some vows that a person wants to have and to change which are include in the checklist of their New Year’s resolution.

“Be responsible. New Year’s resolution ko iwasan na ang pagliban at pagkahuli sa klase, magiging responsible na 'ko ngayon kasi kadalasan late na 'ko nagigising tapos mabagal pa kumilos,” shared Joemari Ferrer, 19, Computer Technology student at Bulacan State University.

“Save Money. Gusto kong Makaipon ng pera para sa next years mag-bi-business na lang ako,” Said Jason Maclang, 22, Factory worker.

“Diet and Exercise for a nice body figure. Because I ate too much this Christmas season, I will watch my diet and exercise to retain my shape,” shared Icy Lopez, 26, a Dress shop owner.

People are not only craving for a change in their own lives, they also strive to help others. 

“As Sangguniang Kabataaan Chairwoman in our barangay (Look 1st), I will try my best to help others especially the Youth with the best that I can - more programs for this coming year,” said Tonilynn Dela cruz, 17. 

Different goals, objectives and desires- yet, they all come together for one reason and intention- for a better life and a brighter future.
