Nappi: I Resolve Not to Worry About Certain Things

Full post here

When young people tell me they want to be reporters when they grow up, I ask: “Do you worry a lot?” If they answer yes, it’s a good sign. To worry is to care. And journalists must care about the communities they cover. Tomorrow, many of you will make New Year’s resolutions. Behind every resolution is a worry. This year, I’m making a list of “inverse resolutions.” In other words, a list of the things I will no longer worry about, including: Finding a job, dying from a sensationalized illness, not hanging out at MySpace or YouTube, etc./Rebecca Nappi, Spokesman Review.

Question: Becky has resolved not to worry about certain things. Did you make a New Year’s resolution?
