Brown Poll - New Year’s resolutions

The Brown poll this month: Do you make New Year’s resolutions?

The results show that the Browns are quite unanimous group of people… vast majority of us never make New Year’s resolutions!

  • I make several resolutions and also keep them 0% [0]
  • I make one resolution every year and keep it 5% [1]
  • I make several resolutions but I never manage to keep them 5% [1]
  • I make one resolution every year but never manage to keep it 5% [1]
  • I never make any resolutions on New Year 84% [16]

So, what do we say about the subject? First some examples of Browns who DON’T make resolutions:

Naomi: “I don't make resolutions on the New Year because I feel it would just be a way for me to feel more guilty the next year.”

Shara: “I don't see the point of making a resolution just to break it. Besides I'm happy with my life and don't have enough bad habits to try and break them.”

Stasia: “I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I figure everything else that needs resolving can occur at other times of the year.”

Miriya: “I never bother with them anymore. I tried as a kid, but I found it never worked anyway, so I tried enjoying New Year's without spending time thinking up something clever”

Serenla: “Nah, I never make them.”

Keara: “It's kind of like Lent (without the religious connotations of course). I always give the idea of making resolutions a little thought and then never commit to anything.”

Laithean: “I personally try to better myself all year round, not just one day a year. So I see no reason for a New Years Resolution.”

A few of us make resolutions on New Year:

Ismene: “I didn't see an option for "I make several resolutions and sometimes I keep them" [Editor’s note: Oops, my bad! Sorry!]. I'd say I keep about half of my resolutions. Usually. Um. Probably my most successful resolution I made several years ago which is to go to one culturally enriching event per month. And I still keep up with it!”

Cassie: “I make various resolutions, sometimes I keep them, often I don't. I rarely make the standard "lose weight, get fit, save money" resolutions, they are usually along the lines of "read more books than you buy."”

Official Brown-out of the month

By Maddie Vitalia:

My husband and I went to put gas in the car. We have a tannish colored Chevy Lumina. We park the car at the pump and I notice that a nearby car is similar in color. I go in and pay for the gas. When I walk out again, I start walking towards what I *think* is my car... I was halfway there before my husband honked the horn and I realized I was walking towards the other tannish car.

I get in and he says "How in the heck could you mistake a Buick for a Chevy?!"
