Greenbelters Speak Up on New Year's Resolutions

How long into the new year will your resolutions last?

Many Greenbelters have made it through day one of the New Year with resolutions in tow. But some folks still haven't come up with one — and may hang it up altogether.

Before giving up on a resolution, see if you can get inspiration from what some of your friends and neighbors have decided. From a City Council member to a Greenbelt Homes, Inc. board member to Patch freelancers and folks across Greenbelt, including yours truly — here's what some Greenbelt folk have decided to take on:

Lore Rosenthal: To start going back to Curves more regularly!

Laura Moore: No more animals. Three cats and one dog in a GHI home is plenty!

Greg Varda: My New Year's resolution is to eat a healthier diet and exercise more. It's as simple as that.

Don Comis: 1) Write five hours a day for at least five days a week. 2) Write one letter a week to my mother. (Don had 15 resolutions in all.)

Sheila Maffay-Tuthill: 1) I'm going to do a lot more outdoor activities, like biking and camping, with my boys in the new year. 2) Stop forgetting to bring my hemp bags to the coop.

Anna Socrates: I'm going to set my inner magpie free and clean and organize the scary closet in my second bedroom where I keep my crafting supplies. (She explained magpies are birds that collect and hoard shiny things.)

Konrad Herling: I will continue no caffeine for the new year.

Molly Lester: 1) To get to know the stories of more Greenbelters. 2) To introduce the Greenbelt Community to two of my favorite community-based performing arts centers, Joe's Movement Emporium in Mt. Rainier, Md. and the Atlas Theater located on the revitalized H Street corridor in northeast Washington, D.C.

Bailey Henneberg: Finish writing one of the fiction novels that I started years ago. Just have to decide whether to finish the Sci-fi, the spy story or the empath detective novel.
