What do you think about 2018?

“2018 was one of the better years, but hard in itself. It was difficult to leave some of my friends in middle school, but I am happy to meet new people. I think everybody can [benefit] from meeting new people, and making new friends.”

What are your 2019 resolutions?

“My resolutions are a bit weird, but one of them is to take care of a plant. One of my friends gave me a skinny tree and I’m hoping to keep it alive. So far, the tree’s leaves have been drooping but I have moved it toward the sunlight to hopefully keep it alive throughout the year.”
