Jan. 1, 2013, marks a new year and in keeping with that, some of the Teens & Twenties writers jotted down what they hope to accomplish in 2013:
   One of my New Year’s resolutions is to get a job and save money so I can take a spring break trip during my senior year. — Tawny Metcalf, junior at Western Alamance High School
   This year, my New Year’s resolution is to become a stronger person and to strengthen my faith as a Christian. — Jessica Page, an intern in the Accent department
   My New Year’s resolution is to relax more read more pray more. — Lenzie Purcell, junior at UNC-Chapel Hill
   My New Year’s resolution is to try and stress less. It seems that it’s very easy to get too much on my plate and I’m sure many others can relate. I am going to try to not spread myself so thin, but still stay involved. I would also like to make a specific time for myself so I can relax during the week and not worry so much. I believe if I can make time for myself, I would be a lot happier and this next year will be better. — Kaitlin Gillespie, junior at Western Alamance High School
   I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions, I try to make resolutions every day. — Jason Mitchell, 25, and a freshman at Alamance Community College
