GED! GED! GED for me! Yup, that’s it for this year. My resolution. Yours, too, right? I bet.
Thing is, wasn’t the GED my resolution last year? Wait. Did I finish that? Uh…. maybe not… But, y’know, I’ve been in these kewl GED classes, right? And now I’m writing this GED blog… is there hope for me and my GED?
But guess what! There’s a GED science spin to this GED resolution thing. A scientist is making a study all about new years resolutions. He started in 2007 by getting a bunch of people to come to his webpage and tell about their resolutions, and then following up with them all year. How do you think they did? He’s supposed to announce the results on January 8. So, I’ll sure follow up about that cuz I want to know how to keep my resolution to get my GED.
So, this professor is called Prof. Richard Wiseman. Funny, huh? Like he’s a real wise man… ha, ha, ha… And he teaches at a big college in England called University of Hertfordshire. So, he’s trying to figure out what makes people stick to their resolutions, and I hope it works so I can know how to get my GED! You can actually be part of the science study by going to this web site: http://www.psy.herts.ac.uk/wiseman/resolutions/opening.html
So, do you think that signing up for this study, say, with getting the GED as your resolution, makes you more likely to get your GED? Does actually being in the study help you do your resolution? That’s what I wonder. Couldn’t hurt, though, huh?!?! Maybe we should all sign up.
Next time I’ll figure out some science GED practice question about this new year’s resolution study thing.
