School is starting next week, and you have some decisions to make — namely, what your 2019 is going to look like. You can either watch it all begin again, or you can call it how you want.

    1. Taylor Swift — you’re probably a freshman. You just finished your first semester of college, and your 2019 resolutions solely revolve around the clubs you’re going to join, the workout regimen you’re going to follow and that Google internship you’re going to get for the summer. Wide-eyed freshman, we at the Clog admire your ambitions. You have a perfectly good heart. Stay beautiful.
    2. Red — you’re feeling super nostalgic. 2019 is going to be your year, and you know this fact all too well. Your resolutions revolve around learning from your 2018 mistakes and living your best life. You’re a wholesome big baller, casually cruising around in fancy cars, but you’re also basic AF, sipping on your daily Strada latte while on your way to studying in the North Reading Room.
    3. 1989 — things are going to get a little crazy. Your New Year’s resolutions include caring less about what others say and do while caring more about your own new beginnings. You’ve also really gotten into dancing lately, so your friends can catch you doing cardio dance at the RSF or finally going to a silent dance party on Sproul. No one can stop you, not even in your wildest dreams.
    4. Reputation — 2019 is the year of revenge. You resolve to be strong and confident, albeit a little more sassy than in previous years. Your friends can catch you studying in the Haas library or grabbing a cup of tea from Cafe Think, served piping hot, of course. Things can get stressful and sometimes quite delicate, but the Clog knows you’re ready for it.
