A new year means a brand new start. It’s totally common to make a New Year’s resolution and to promise to make the most of the opportunity for a new chapter, but oftentimes, we tend to forget about those goals and promises for the upcoming year.
Let’s leave those weight loss or finding love resolutions with squiggly eyebrows and all of the other weird things to come out of 2017. These seven resolutions are not only realistic and attainable for teens, they’re also going to help you make 2018 your year.
1. Get your driver’s license.
It’s a new year and there are so many new adventures to take on. Make 2018 your best year yet by starting the process of getting your driver’s license. It may take some work and some time, but with the help of Aceable, you’ll be able to make this life-changing resolution come true.
2. Earn better grades.
Not exactly the most exciting or thrilling resolution, but it’s one you’ll thank yourself for. With some hard work, dedication, and belief in yourself, you can definitely help reach your goals. This might mean prepping for the ACT or killing your finals, but either way, you’re going to pat yourself on the back for the improvement in your work ethic. New year, new you, new GPA.
You might be tired of the same old sights and scenery, so this new year could involve taking on some new destinations, especially if you’re officially licensed. It doesn’t matter where you are, there are tons of road trips and scenic routes to explore, from the fall foliage of the north to the different suburbs and cities of Ohio. You can always plan the trip of a lifetime.
Who doesn’t love having a little extra cash? 2017 may have been your year to spend, but make 2018 the year of treating yourself with some dedicated saving. Your purchases will feel that much more precious. If you don’t know where to start (we’re talking to you, shopaholics!), you can always try Aceable Plus or the Aceable referral program.
This year wasn’t an easy one, for many reasons. We saw so many wins and triumphs, but we also witnessed a few tragedies. Disasters like Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey left us wondering how to help and hoping to get involved. Just as so many people made a difference after the aforementioned events, so can you. This year, figure out ways to give back, whether it’s on a global scale or in your own backyard.
Some people might be taking vows of social media silence, but not everyone wants to abandon the internet and live “in the moment” 24/7. Instead, be mindful of your social media presence, meaning that you’re maintaining an air of professionalism, keeping your Twitter in check, and of course, always thinking of THE most fire IG caption possible.
No matter what, it’s always nice to take a step back and remember that not everything has to be so serious. Yes, homework, school, family, and friends are all priorities, but make sure you also remember to enjoy yourself while you’re young. It could be a winter break dance party or it could be heading to a haunted house and screaming bloody murder with friends. Whatever you want to do, make this new year your year and live it up.
