2019 is fast approaching. Soon, 2018 will be left behind in a burning, rotting wreck where it belongs and the New Year will herald the arrival of new challenges, new opportunities, and most importantly, new resolutions. Will you be able to keep them? If you're like 99.8% of the country, probably not, but...maybe this year's the year!


Reddit user, u/oknatethegreat, wanted to know what are you hoping to improve for the coming year when they asked:

Can't Seduce You If It's Not There

Eat better. I've got the exercising thing down. I just struggle with excessive snacking.

laurustinus

Don't buy the candy. If it's in the cupboard it's free. It's easier to ignore it once then twice a day.

Fruit lots of fruit. I don't know if 10 apples a day is healthy but I stopped buying candy and less sugar = less pain and it became self reinforcing the same way a coffee makes you enjoy the bitter.

Aiming For The Stars

Get a real career, be more productive, try.

GladMax

I believe in you

Love or money?

An age old question.

Ideally, you wouldn't have to decide between the two.

In a perfect world, you would be able to find the true love of your life and be incredibly wealthy all at once.

But, as the saying goes, you can't have everything.

Though if faced with having to choose between the two, people might have a different idea of what the obvious answer would be.

Redditor lulinghayaw was curious how people would decide when faced with this decision, leading them to ask:

"Genuine, true love or 5 million dollars? Why?"

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"
