All the New Year's Resolutions You Can Handle

In Friday's class, I asked all of my freshmen to write 3 New Year's Resolutions. Also, I explained (perhaps ineffectively) what a New Year's Resolution was--something that you did not do this year that you promise to do next year. I gave a few examples--I will lose 20 Kilos, I will learn how to swim, etc.--and set them off.

I decided to write them all down here. They are quite touching. First I will do my afternoon section, which has stronger English speakers. Next post I will do my morning session, where the English is not as strong, but the sentiment is just as nice.

Enjoy. Here's the Afternoon session, with stronger English:


1) I will entrance Faculty of Veterinarian Medicine that make my parent to feel proud.
2) I will be a good person.
3) I will buy something which I want.



Next year...
1)I will sleep early mid-night
2) I will save my money.
3) I will do all household for my parent.



1) I will lose 5 kilos
2) I will read a lot of book
3) I will sleep early

[Ed. note--"Read a book" is Thai-English for "study"]



1) I will lose my weight 2 kilograms.
2) I will be more industrious
3) I will sleep earlier



-I will intend to study for best grade.
-I will lose my leg
-I will buy everything for me.

[Ed. Note: Number 2 was so strange that I had to ask Bua what she meant. She wants to lose weight in her thighs. She does not have a prosthetic leg that she is actively trying to lose.]



-I will study hard more than present
-I will complete Academy Fantasia
-I will study about cooking from mother

[Ed. Note: I need to ask her about Academy Fantasia. I'm not sure what it is--this is what a Google Search turned up.
