“I don’t have a New Year’s resolution yet. Last year it was to be more healthy.”
(Did you stick to it?) “No. I’ll re-up this year.” – Gabrielle Trimblett, 15, Bayonne
“Same, it didn’t work” [of being more healthy]. “My resolution is also to be more healthy.” – Christyn Trimblett, 15, Bayonne
“No, I don’t have anything. I don’t think about it. I just want my daughter to finish college.
I mean she’s going to finish college. Ohio State. She’ll be done in May no matter what, but that’s my wish. I hope everything goes well. I don’t want a picture, but you can take one of my dog.” – Eva Staromiejska, Bayonne, 54
“Same thing as everyone else. Lose weight.” – Gerald Timoldi, Bayonne, 20
“To work harder in school.” – Aaron Romo, 15, West New York
“Mine is to just be a better friend. Talk more, truly understand my friends.” – Rebekka Stripling, 23, North Bergen
“My New Year’s resolution is to get my driver’s license. I have had my permit for a year and I have just been slacking and haven’t done it yet. I lived in cities before where a never needed one and now I’ve got a newborn baby and she will need me to be able to take her places like the doctor’s office. I just have to go do it.” – Luques Curtis, Weehawken
“This is hard. I haven’t thought about it yet really. Maybe be more present in the moment? I am a super planner. I think if I’m more present it will help me relax more and not rush my youth away. I sometimes feel like that.” –Jordyn Burns, Hoboken
“My resolution is to be more patient and kind to my fellow people and animals” – Patty Mulligan from Bayonne, shopping in Jersey City
“My New Year’s resolution is to go basic and try and get up 30 minutes or 45 minutes earlier everyday just so I don’t have to rush in the mornings. I find I do that a lot. People come up with these big resolutions but sometimes you just need to do the small stuff.” – Adam Persak, Hoboken (and his dog Sammy)
The New Year is an opportunity to rethink your habits, so residents of our town (and their dogs) stopped to chat with us last week about their goals for 2017.
