New Year’s resolutions are always a hot topic at the end of December.

This year, I thought I would mix it up. Instead of asking students about their goals and aspirations for 2014, I asked adults to reflect on what they would make as a resolution if they could be a teenager again!

“To apply myself better.”  — Gena Wakefield, 32

“To listen to my parents, because they know what they are talking about.”  — Mellisa Michelson, 40

“To make academics a priority, so that I could get into a good college.”  — Machelle Homer, 46

“To go streaking — you can’t get away with that when you’re older.” — Kris Anderson, 25

“Be in more pictures. I would never allow people to photograph me and I would change that.”  — Sara Jane Pohlman, 24

“I would listen to my mom more often. She didn’t want me to make the same mistakes she did.”  — Diane Rosales, 47

“I would have completed my schooling when I was young.”  — Stephanie Hiatt, 36

“Pay better attention to how my current actions would affect my future.”  — Theresa Larson, 59

“Worry less about friends and cliques because they really don’t matter after high school.”  — Dan Evans, 29

“To focus more and further my education.”  — Corinna Berger, 49

“To eat healthier because bad habits are hard to break.”  — Regina Rice, 63
