Jaclyn Humphry, visiting her Arlington boyfriend from Portland, Oregon: "Well, I know what mine is. Should I say this? Stop smoking the JUUL. Mint is definitely the best. It became like a social thing, but it's as addictive as nicotine. I want to focus on my overall health — my mind, body and spirit. I want to be more positive about everything, being happier."
Sierra Myrick, warming up with stretching exercises before running with her best friend, Jaclyn: "I don't have a resolution but I'll think for a minute. I know. My resolution is going to be to start my career as a massage therapist. I just graduated in October. I'd like to start my own practice someday. And we both like to exercise. We're always at the gym."
Tom Stoker, climbing into his carpentry work truck: "Focus on my carpentry, which is what I love. I have lived in Arlington all my life and I have a business, Stoker Professional Carpentry, out of my home. I have been building custom-made cabinets for 15 years and I'd like to do it faster and better. It's good for me because the flexible hours gave me time to spend with our daughter, who just started at Dickinson College this year. And exercise more."
Sarah Aguirre, home visiting her family in Arlington from NYU: "Sure, I have several resolutions. So, I want to start meditating daily. I have a nice, sunny room in my New York apartment. I want to exercise daily. I did crew in high school at Washington-Lee. And I want to start making protein-rich smoothies every day."
Maya Aguirre, with her sister during vacation from National Cathedral School: "I want to start making more friends. I have a lot of people I can rely on, but I would like to expand my friendships. This is my first year at National Cathedral. I am involved in a lot of activities with cross country, crew, and I play the piano, so I've started to meet a lot of new people from different areas."
