I Hereby Resolve

Q: Why did the past year seem to go by in a blur?
A: Your resolution must have been too low!

Explanation: Happy New Year!  I wish you the very best in 2022!!

Do you make new year’s resolutions?  A new year’s resolution is a decision to do something (or stop doing something) so that your life will be better in the new year.  Many people make a resolution to exercise more or read more; many people do not keep their new year’s resolutions.

Another meaning of resolution has to do with how focused something is, that is, how sharp the picture looks. When images go to fast they may seem blurry, that is, you cannot see them clearly because the resolution is low.  Digital images and pictures may also seem blurry if they taken from far away or with a camera with few pixels.  If your camera has a higher resolution, your picture will be more clear.

This joke is funny because it plays with the meanings of the word resolution: a decision, or the sharpness of an image.  If you make a resolution, be sure to tell people who will help you keep your resolution for the new year.  We all need to help make this world better.

Here is something else that is resolute: The Resolute Desk–
