My New Year’s Resolutions

This year, I’m making a whole list of resolutions for the
new year. I did that last year, too, but I wasn’t too great at keeping them!
This year’s going to be different, though. That’s because I’m not making any
promises I can’t keep (or at least try to keep, anyway!).

Here’s my list of resolutions:

1. Make time to listen to my friends and help them with
their problems

2. Work harder on my schoolwork

3. Clean Sam and Cody’s mouse cage more often

4. Spend more time helping out with community service

5. Ignore the annoying things the Pops do.

That last one is going to be the
toughest one of all to keep. For some reason, the stuff Addie and her friends
say and do really gets to me. Of course, that’s why they do it. Maybe they’d
stop being such jerks if I didn’t let them upset me. It’s worth a try, anyway.

Okay, those are my resolutions. Are you guys making any this year? What are they? And
how successful do you think you’ll be at keeping them?

Happy Holidays!

    Whoo hoo first to comment!! My resolutions are to make more friends and get a better algebra grade! I have a B in algebra rite now, so I HAVE to get it up by end of year. Yeah, I think I’ll keep these. I’m pretty outgoing so I’ll make new friends almost for sure. And yes if I study hard before tests I’ll have an A in algebra again!!!! Good luck with your goals, Jenny.

  19. jkessiah

    I haven’t really thought about my New Year’s Resolutions, but now that i think about it, the most important New Year’s resolution for me is
    ~stop procrastinating!!
    I procrastinate all the time, whether it’s school work or checking my email or cleaning the litter box. So my most important New Year’s resolution is to stop procrastinating! I’m sure there r some others, but i can’t think of them right now. But maybe I should just stick w/ the one and see if i can even accomplish THAT one!! :)

  20. loveksm90

    1.get better grades in science to my friends more
    3.dont gt mad so fast everyone so much
    5.4 meant for me to love everybody in god name.

  21. Skylar

    I’m going to try to keep my room cleaner, which is pretty hard considering I have a younger sister I share a room with.
    I’m also going to try to write more letters to my friend in Florida. I know I will definatly keep that one.
    I’m going to e-mail my BFF more often too!

  22. Kristen

    so far i havent made any yet, but i think one of them will be to take the initiative to be more outgoing. another one i might say would be to be more dedicated in terms of practicing my trumpet, and going to Tae Kwon Do more often.

  23. Andy

    good for you! I think your doing the right thing. my new year’s resolution is to be nicer to my little brother. he deserves some slack….

  24. lol4life

  33. Bippy2u

    My new year resolutions are:
    1. To actualy study before a test
    2. Try to reach out more(I’m wayy to shy)
    3. Do all my chores without my parents reminding me
    That it!:D

  34. Can't tell

    YES IM THE First to write something!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Yeah I have a very long list of resulutions.
    1.Read More
    2.Be more calm
    3.Turn in all my homework
    Sorry I had 83, so I only put 3.
    I have to read who’s got spirit?

  35. Fumie

    I think your new year’s resolutions are great! But it might be better if you work out a time schedule for it- or wear something that you can see at all time to remember it. A ring for exsample if you want to wear it in school and remind yourself about the pops resolution. It should help. Don’t think negative, always positive- there is always one for everything!

  36. jillian

    I wish I had freinds

  37. sarah

    cool i wish i had a pet mouse i think your books rock and the way i found out about them is my menter gave me books 1-4 and know im on the 4th book and i think addie needs to listen to this song that is by one of my fav singers and shes like telling some kid how you might think you are all that but really this kid has no friends and shes like “so were are friends now baby arent they the ones who are there for you” so i now need to buy the other 8 book s and i cant wait

  38. Saranyaa

    Happy Holidays Jenny! I think your resolutions are absolutely awesome and simple. I haven’t thought much about my resolutions but here we go:

  42. Bronwyn

    Hi Jenny!
    I think I’m the first one to post on your blog. About the new years resolutions: I actually don’t make any. I go by month so that I remember them and since there is 12 months in a year I usually have accomplished a lot by the end of the year. Sometimes it is hard though to keep them when you have so much on your schedule. I hope you have a good winter break and lets hope to see some snow soon!

  43. Yazmyn

    Those are some cool resolutions.
    I have some too:
    1. Focus on school
    2. Practice dances

    n hmmm…i have quite a few resolutions.
    1st:- to exercise more. im turning into a blob. of chocolate. D:
    2nd:- to eat healthier. have i mentioned that im a blob?
    3rd:- to not let the pops bother me as much. yeah, so im not as skinny as a stick, and i dont have a wardrobe filled with Hollister and Abercrombie clothes. And so what, im not completely ‘developed’ yet, and im not so ‘popular’? And who cares that i dont have a boyfriend, or i didnt have my first kiss yet? Big whoop. Im only 12, for pete’s sake. But i dont know..sometimes the pops can really make me feel…bad. REALLY bad. Help pl0x!
    -ur friend, even if i dont know u, ur awesome anyways. -kari

  47. marilyn

    hey jenny. im going through a really hard time right now. my parents are splitting up. i wanna get into the christmas spirit and cheer, but i just cant. how can i stop feeling so sad all the time?
    thanks. love, mari

  48. amanda

    hey guys. i really need help.
    i have dark brown hair and dark brown eyes. everything about me is so…blah. regular clothes. nothing special. a typical outfit for me is jean shorts and a pink-and-white striped shirt. i have medium-dark skin. asian. have small, almond-like eyes. have a HUGE nose. have shoulder length frizzy, wavy, (boring) hair with some bangs.
    now the pops.
    they are all white or 1/2 white 1/2 asian. i TOTALLY wish i could be that nationality. their hair is long, straight, silky, smooth, shiny, GORGEOUS, and either blond, light brown, or black. THEY are allowed to wear makeup, and they always look cute. super cute. they wear these tight clothes from popular stores that are too expensive for me and besides, my mom says i cant wear that. its ‘too old’ for me. :( . and ALL the guys pay attention to the pops. me? no ways. THEIR funny and girly and cute and friendly and popular. IM shy and quiet and a wanna-be pop. i REALLY wanna be a blond haired, blue eyed, Juicy Couture buying, girly, cute, makeup wearing pop. i keep telling myself, ‘no, u cant. no, its not possible. just forget it.’ but i cant.

  49. Chrisya

    I want to be a kind and a humble girl everywhere. I also have POP in school. But they are very kind to me. Cause I am POP too.

  50. munchkin

    im really mean to my sisters…oops:)!and also to be more open to my crush cuz…we’re getting there:)…lol

  51. nerdgrl!!! :)

    good luck w/ the crush!!

  52. Hannah

    1.Work hard for school
    2.start working on my audition event though it’s not until the following year lead my soccer team to victory
    4.try to find out who i’m going to be and work on it
    i think 3 might be hard because my school is horrible at sports, but they are good are good at academic competitions. one good goalie (my friend)and one good mid-fielder (me) won’t be very helpful

  53. shaela

  54. Ginger

    i dont really do the resolution things. Some advice about the Pops….act like u dont care…..there is a boy in my class who annoys me soooo much but then i tell him it doesnt bother me and he stops what ever he is doing! ta-da! lol….so try that with the pops…i just got finished reading ur first book! i already rad the ” caught in the web” one and i loved them both! im reading the second one now! and this time with the pops no food fights! lol
    hey g2g..good luck with the pops! bye! xoxo

  55. kelly

    well jenny, try not to let the pops get to you. i am shy. it would be hard for me. my resolution is to get over my shyness. (hopefully i can keep it!) well, keep your spirits up and wish you a great Christmas while i spent mine in boredom, and a happy New Year, i’ll be bored then too! LOL :) )
    Love you Jen,

  56. Catherine

  58. Sananda

  59. Lara

    My only new years revalution is to stop biting my nails.Good luck.

  60. Devon

    OK, so im new 2 this. is Jenny an actual person? srry, couldnt help but ask. :)
    but i have 1 resolution:
    To be myself (if I can find who that is…), & not try 2 act different 2 fit in.

  61. Devon

    & i do have Pops & my school, but only 1 of them is mean. though theres only 1, shes as bad as 10 mean Pops. worst thing is that she acts like shes my friend, & invites me 2 her parties & stuff, but always talks about me behind my back & sometimes comes up 2 me & says/does something mean out of nowhere.

  62. Jodie, popular but nice :)

    Luv ur resolutions and I have some too but I wouldn’t show mine on my blog, my blog is about Club Penguin. I’m sure not afraid to admitt that I like Club Penguin even though most ppl don’t!

  63. tayswiftfan123456

    Hey jen!I totally know how yiouy feel about Addie,i have some mean girls at my school too.Anyways,here are some of my new year’s resoulutions: nicer to people 2.keep my room more clean 3.get better grades

  64. chrissy

    Het Jenny i thought your resolutions were great so hear are mine
    Play with my pets more
    try at math more (im like super duper bad)
    Clean my room more often

  65. Adiladia

    To: Addiefan1
    I don’t think it is all about being popular. Their are people who are starving dying and being abused in many countries. I think you should give back and not be conceited. My name is Addie and i totally know i am not an Addie in any way.
    Good Luck and try to enjoy the holidays!
    Who agrees with me?
    But for my resolutions i would like to help my parents more, volunteer more, and ask for an allowance or convince my parents to let me have a job(babysitting,picking weeds, or watching)

  66. Adiladia

    To: Hudda
    Just ignore the pops the treat you mean because they are jealous of you!

  67. Adaladia

    TO: Sara ask him what he is doing this week but do it casual. If he says nothing tell him your really want to see ____________(movie playing) at a local theater asking him if he would like to go.
    If he is unsure say a few friends are going even if you know they aren’t and he will feel it more like hanging out instead of a date but i think u want a date.

  108. Jenni

    @ my school, we don’t really have Pops but there are some pretty mean girls who think they know it all, but aren’t really that popular. At my school, we know that the NICE people are the popular ones, so the mean ones are always so angry and whispering and doing really nasty stuff. :| Oh well.

  126. Addie


  127. Addie

    I love your books. It’s just that, your books should have another mean Pop, like me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  128. Addie

    Your friend Chloe is a spacecadet.

  130. Marzy

    I don’t belive in resolutions. but I try to make it a better year! I’ll play soccer in 7th grade (6th graders arent allowed to play sports) I’ll ignore my one friend thats ‘pioson’ and be the best friend I can be to my other awsome friends, I try to make them laugh thier faces purple! :-) people sometimes get to me to! but once I stood up to my one friend. you should try standing up to them! in front of a lot of people is good too. good luck with it!

  131. alexandra

    even i am toatly healthy iwould love to lose aruond 5-10 lbs. i would also like to start to eat healther.

  132. Koolkat7857

    Awesome jenny! Well you know what, I have Pops at my school, but the leader is actually my BBFL! Technically, Im a pop too , but we are NICE pops. Not like Addie and Dana.

  133. Katie

    Well, I’m going off topic a lttle, but Jenny brought it up. i’m a pop (5th most pop in my school :D ) and we aren’t all rude they way Jenny describes them as. me and my friends are regular people, need to have good grades, like to just hang and have secrect chrush’s. Just because we like to dress cute and good (we have the money to) doen’t make us bad people, and a lot of people like us, or want to be us because we dress nice and wear makeup and tons of jewlery and do our hair nice, and prob cause boys like us. I know, I was a “wanna be” once, in my old school. it got soo bad I only wore sweats and hoodies!BTW, Now i wear mini skitrs, cute girly t-shirts and skinny jeans and cute uggs. AGGGG I still can’t beleive I dressed like tht. but all I’m sayong is not all pops are rude, adn u should give them a chance!

  134. Josie

    Hey! Those are good reolutions. I started this thing called the Current State of the Union. Heres todays CSOTU(current state of the union):
    In Out
    Teachers Subsututies
    Clipped Bangs Loose bangs

  135. Ashley

  136. Christina

  139. Lexie101

    Hi Jenny.
    I’m in seventh grade, and i love your stories.
    In my school, we have POPS, but they aren’t as mean as Dana, Sabrina, Maya, Claire, or Addie. But they still think that they’re, well, all that…
    I’m pretty popular, and my frendz aren’t like the pops at my school, and my frendz are sorta like your frendz.
    I am sorry if the following is my personal info. It just felt good to get it off my chest…
    Also, my bff has a boy friend in eighth grade, and she told me that they kissed a lot of times.I am SOOOOOOO jealous of her.I mean, when is my BF not gonna just hang around and start telling me he likes me as much as I like him???

  140. white-and-nerdy

    Omigosh!!!!!!!!!! My new years resolution was to stop talking so much!!!!! But I haven’t been able to keep doing it!!!! :-) So how have you been doing keeping your new year’s resolution??? I bet it’s tuff!!!!!

  141. Kelsey

  142. CD

    Hi my new years resolution was to stop my bad habbit and i m doing a pretty good job at it! Hope yours is going well!

  143. Chanel

    Hey gal! U shld ignore the pops. I noe a girl who’s really mean, just like Addie and Dana. My mum told me to ignore her and I gave it a try. U noe wat? It worked! Now, she doesn’t disturb me anymore and does these stupid things to get me to be her friend again. (BTW, I used to b BFs with her, like you and Addie.) Gd luck wif the pops. And just to let you noe, I think that you and ur gang are cool and awesome!

  144. Victoria

    Hey Jenny,
    I guess I have some resolutions for this year, too. Here they are:
    1. Feed my dog every morning and night without being asked to do.
    2. Give it all I got in dance.
    3. Get first honors in school.
    4. Help out my brother more.
    5. To not forget to take my dog a bath every Saturday.
    6. Listen to my friends and give the best advice (that one I mostly do already!).
    7. Be a great daughter, sister, and BFFL!
    Well that’s all I can think of right now folks. Talk to you soon Jenny.

  145. Ana

    i have made one to ignore the pops in my school and try to talk less often in my classes. my teachers all seem ti give me a b in conduct and my mom starts to freak out. i also made one to bathe my dog myself more often. ignoring what the pops do at my school is really hard because my friend’s boyfriend is a pop and the guy who i like who likes me back but has a girlfriend which is my ex friend are pops. i have school so the dog thing not so much but i could stop taliking if i wanted too.

  146. Madeline

    I think you should be a pop your stylish and fun.

  151. Suzanna

    Dont let pops bug u! they r only dumb peepo who thinks fashion and coolness is the ONLY things in the WORLD!

  152. Brianna

  153. Monica

    Here they are:
    1)To try to stop fighting with my brother (or do A little less!)

  158. Sarah

    Hey Jenny,
    I had a question. Or two.
    1. What would you do if the Pops invited u and all your friends to join them?
    I am your biggest fan! Please answer my questions!
    Your biggest fan,

  159. jamie

    I am like you I made a resolution and I am having truble keeping it!!! :)

  160. Geneva

    My New Years Resolution iz 2 make more friendz and get grades listen 2 my parentz more often.

  161. laura

    Wow! I like the last one!

  162. Abby

    DO NOT ignore the pops! Show them you have more power than they think. Try to set them off gaurd with a comeback like this, “If I actually cared about what you thought of me, I would be upset right now. Perfect for Chloe!

  163. Sarah

    mine is to stop fighting with my sibilings!:):)

  164. aubrey

    advice for the pops go up to Addie and say to bad you don’t have a zit it might help your face and it’s make up problems

  165. rose

    My resolution is to ask my best guy friend (also my crush), who has a girlfriend, to dance at the 6 grade dance.

  166. meme

    im suggesting a comment for your resolutions .the one i wanna i want to suggest is to keep on rocking on and be the cool ,popular(your popular to me!) self you are and i want a pet mouse to.

  167. sami

    jen our school has a group of queen bee’s.but do ignore them. or tell an adoult!!!! it helps.
    p.s you rock jen

  168. Megan

    My resolution is 1 goal:Don’t have any goals!

  169. Shirley

    I have a resoultution
    plant more trees!
    i have pops at my school and they tease me about my friends don’t worry they will get bored of it because you dont say anything!

  170. Brittany

    It’s alright Jenny! Pops pick on people because they’re jealous of you. Pops always like drama, so if you get sad or mad about what they say or do to you; the more they’ll bug you. I wish you good luck! Anyways, here’s my New Year’s goals!
    1. Be at least in one play (I love acting!)
    2. Make more friends
    3. Decorate my room (Trust me, it’s a total bore!)
    4. Hang out with friends or family more often

  171. --brandi

    I am the person that hangs out with the pops, so i guess you could call me a pop too!!! YaY me!!! But im NOT the mean type!!! c-ya l8r!!

  172. Claire

    My resolution is to be nice to my brother. It sounds silly, but he is just so annoying sometimes! Thanks, Claire

  173. alice

    LOL!!!!!:) i like your ideas and for me the las one would be hardest too. but your right if you don’t let them bother you maybe they will stop good luck!!!!!:)

  174. Jenna O'dell

    I have mice too! Cool. And a good idea for cleaning the cage is to vacume up the dirty wood chips, or whatever floor you have, once every 2 weeks. I find it alot better than dumping the chips into the trash bags. So I really hope I see your books in Chapters this year. My best friend, Julia, and I love reading your storys. Happy New Year!

  175. izzy

    i am trying to stop talking in class!!!!!
    AT LEAST FOR ME IT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  176. chloe

    my new years resolution was to exercise a lot.and dont let the pops words get to you theyre just jealous because youre awesome

  177. Sasha

    yo peace i suck at them but one of mine is to get B or higher and to go on a date. plus i used to have one that was to get the lead role in a play and i did :) :):) it is Wood stock and my crush is snoopy!!!!!! i perform oday wish me luck! ahhhhhhh neverous

  178. Yasmin

    Hudda, do I know you? And Hey, Sara, I can just tell by your lingo that your a clique reader, and a Massie fan.
    FYI- If you didn’t already know, LBR stands for loser beyond repair
    and Alpha just is basically the same thing as a pop. I reacommend to you The Clique series.
    I Heart You.
