Looking toward 2012

Maybe you're heading off to college next year or starting an apprenticeship.Β  Maybe you're looking forward to the benefits of being an upperclassman, or maybe you'll be eligible to drive for the first time or to vote next November.

Whatever your hopes for 2012 are, we'd love to hear about them. Leave us a comment below on what you're looking forward to in the new year.

    Hoipefully in 2012, the world can turn the economies around. please notice how i made it plural, as it is just not the U.S, Greece, and Italy that are in tight spots. Maybe that should be the countries' New Year's Resolution... πŸ™‚

  42. ~Jyssica~

    What I am looking forward in the new year of 2012 is to graduate high school with my loving classmates. The election will be interesting in November of 2012 but I will be old enough to vote so I will be involved what adults vote, it will be the first time I vote. I will also be looking forward to college in the fall of 2012 I won’t go very far from my family but I’m just going to a community college so I could be close to my family so I can see them on the weekends. I think the year 2012 will be interesting in everybody’s lives about the economy and election year but it will be interesting to see how it will turn out.

  44. Gabe

    For me I am excited to graduate from high school and move on to my next level of learning in college. From what my brothers and sister tell me college is fun and I need to pick the right one that fits me. College I have a feeling will be quite the adventure. The only part that I don’t look forward to is being a freshman again. I plan on trying out for the basketball team. I am sure I will make a lot of new friends and enjoy seeing old friends who came to the same college campus as me.

  87. Savannah

    In 2012, the one big thing I’m looking forward to most is graduation! Where I come from a high school of only 100 and some kids, I’m ready to leave and start the next chapter of my life, meet new people. Now that I am 18 years old I’m also looking forward to voting in the next presidential election. It’s another big step in the New Year, and big step in my life. High school graduation and voting both show that my childhood is coming to a close and my young adulthood is fast approaching, and I’m excited for that.

    The only thing I’m really looking forward to in the year off 2012, is graduation. I’m excited to finally be able to graduate although I’m just going into more schooling. I’m happy I get to walk down the aisle with Laramey and Jacee.  I feel graduation is a big accomplishment and no one else in my family out of the grand kids has graduated. I’m also looking forward to turning 18, seems how I do on the day of graduation. I believe that 2012 will be a great year and full of excitement. I’m defiantly hoping it’s better than the past year has been.

    December 1, 2011 at 9:24 am |
  90. Laramey:)

    There are things that I am looking forward too and there are things that I’m dreading. I am excited to graduate and have reached such a great milestone in my life, but I am also at the same time nervous to leave home and be out on my own in college. I am excited for college, I will get to meet new people every day and also I will get to play basketball, which will be a blast and a great experience for me! I have voted once in a county election for a bond, but I am excited because I will get to vote for the President coming up in November. Though I will miss my school, my friends, and my family I will be excited to start a new chapter of my life and begin college.

    I'm super stoked for the new year being because I will be a high school student. 2012 will be a year filled with new friends, new adventures, and hopefully a new healthier environment. The economy today is horrible and hopefully the new year will mean a better economy. Leaving my friends for high school will be tough but I will be able to reunite with my old friends.

    I am looking forward to my softball season because I love softball and it is my favorite sport of all time! I am also looking forward to my birthday because I'll finally have a phone and I love chocolate. I think that the most exciting thing that will happen next year is 4-h camp. It is sooo much fun because the themes are always different and you get to make friends.

    The only thing I’m really looking forward to in the year off 2012, is graduation. I’m excited to finally be able to graduate although I’m just going into more schooling. I’m happy I get to walk down the aisle with Laramey and Jacee. I feel graduation is a big accomplishment and no one else in my family out of the grand kids has graduated. I’m also looking forward to turning 18, seems how I do on the day of graduation. I believe that 2012 will be a great year and full of excitement. I’m defiantly hoping it’s better than the past year has been.

    What i am most excited about for 2012 is that it is a new year. Time to do new things and hopefully stick to them. I know that the world is not going to end because the Mayans are gone. Why is it such a big deal that this is when their calender ends. I also hope that the US can start resolving many problems, such as our heavy debt.

    I hope that the president can do something about jobs and the economy. If Americans didn't have jobs that would be bad, and very horrible. The economy is a different story if they can make the economy go down or up whichever is the good one the would proudly get more money for the country.

    What I am looking for in (2012) is a better economy. I hope that Greece and all the other countries around the world that are in debt that they don't have the same issue. And the last thing is I hope that all of the places that are having fights, that they figure all of it out and then there's no more.

    December 4, 2011 at 3:55 pm |
  173. Jessica

    Commenting live from somewhere in the world is me, Jessica. To me, next year is not about the world ending, it's not about the troops coming home or all the wars ending or world peace. Because there will always be another war, the same sad war that were always fighting and the same troops will go out again. The rumor that the world is ending will never cease because eventually the world will end. In 2012, I am not even looking forward to a fresh start, a new year. What I'm looking forward to is the same every year. It's that we humans understand our mistakes and correct them. That everyone who is determined to do something bad stops and thinks about what they do before they do it. Because sometimes we're too caught up in our life to worry about others. So in 2012, I hope tbat light really sparks in the world and everyone is mature enough to understand their mistakes and fix them. The world isn't perfect, but we can take it one step closer if we try.

It scares me a little bit, but I think it will be exciting. I have been looking forward to this for the past year. I will be closer to my sister and will get to see her more. Also, 2012 will be my first time to vote in any elections. I am excited to be able to choose the president and other officials now. I think that 2012 will be an exciting year for me.

  213. joey

  227. Maya

    I hope that people will start looking to the environment. Forests are getting chopped down and global warming is a problem and we are too dependent on oil. I hope the U.S government will maybe employ people to put up solar panels. That will decrease the unemployment rate.
    Nobody should worry about the end of the world in 2012. This year some day was supposed to be the end of the world. I didn't even know until I went to practice, and the world didn't end. So that's that.

    December 5, 2011 at 5:45 pm |
  228. mary

    2012 is a way to start out fresh. i will be having a more positive attitude toward others and be living a healthier lifestyle. everyone should think of a New Year's resolution goal, whether it be weight loss, or trying out for a new sport, you can do it! keep it up, carl azuz

    I want to see who the new president will be. I like to see who wins the elections, even though polotics aren't really my thing. I think it is still interesting to see who the new head hocho will be.

    December 6, 2011 at 10:48 am |
  249. Jaya

    I am looking forward to 2012 mostly because of presidential elections. It isn't that I hate Obama, it's just that I don't think he is right for this country. Our economy is failing and we need someone to fix it. We need a leader who has a bit more common sense.

    December 6, 2011 at 10:49 am |
  250. Benjamin

    Iran has been the site of fighting for generations

    December 6, 2011 at 10:49 am |

  257. Yasmine

    In 2012, I look forward to the New Year because I can go to the people who think 2012 is the end and say that they are wrong. I also look forward to 2012 because I will be in the 8th grade. I can go overseas in 2012.

    December 6, 2011 at 10:55 am |

    December 6, 2011 at 10:55 am |
  259. Ryder

    I am looking forward to the new year because it's the year that we get to vote elect a new president. Presidet Barrack Obama has done an OK job, but I think we should elect someone who who could be a new Teddy Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, or George Washington. My point is that President Obama has done what he can, and its time for someone new.

    December 6, 2011 at 10:56 am |
  260. Aubriana

    I'm looking forward to a new president even though I haven't had any major problems with Obama. A new president should be a nice change. Maybe this year we can have a Female President elected. I hope 2012 can be a new start, and open new doors for everyone.

    December 6, 2011 at 10:56 am |
  261. Seth

    I have a few things:

    I hope that all the stray dogs and cats will find a new home.
    I hope that all the crimanals will turn good.
    I hope that I'll get a millian dollars. πŸ™‚
    Ok, the last one will never happen, but the first 2, I hope, will some time happen.

  262. Anonymous

    I look forward to having a new president. It's time we had a fresh start with a fresh president. I hadn't even heard there were wars going on until he came to office. I can understand that women want a female president, but you'd think that it's almost tradition to have a male president.

    December 6, 2011 at 10:58 am |
  263. Ryan2

    I know the world isn't going to end in 2012. It will end when it feels like it.

    In 2012, i hope that the US economy will be fixed by the new president. I also hope that I can bring up my grades. I hope that I can get a new bike in 2012 too.

  265. Jaylon

  266. Hanna

    I am looking forward to the 2012 president election. Maybe we will get another chance at a female president. I am also looking forward to making it through 2012. That way i can prove to people that the world is not going to end in that year.

    December 6, 2011 at 9:19 pm |
  297. Mags

    I do not see any reason why the year 2012 should be expected to be particularly special compared to any other year–aside from the American presidential election, I mean, which should get quite heated. 2012 certainly has potential to be special–we won't know until it's over. Personally, I am looking forward to the DNC being held in my state (North Carolina).

    December 6, 2011 at 9:36 pm |
  298. elizzabeth

    For the 2012 year, I hope to continue to use my dreams of becoming a journalist and/or published author as a driving force to succeed in my academics. Being a junior in high school, this is my chance to be a participating role in deciding my future. I hope that in the years following I seize every opportunity that comes my way and achieve any future goals that I put into play.

    I will be able to get my license in 2012. I can't wait, because then I don't have to ride the bus. Also, I am really interested in our next president. With the pay roll break, I agree with the Democrats but my parents and I are more Republican. Also, I want to see if the world is going to end. As a Christian, I refuse to believe that the Mayans were right about the world ending. We have had several others so why is this one any different?

    2012 was said to be the year the world would end, but I think we'll keep moving toward the future for a little longer, before that day ever comes. There isn't a huge event I can think of that is planned for this year. What I mean is being in a different school this year, I am looking forward to new experiences. There are things that might happen this year, but nothing is written in stone. One thing I do know is that I'll be watching more CNN Student News!

    I'm hoping the new year will be a chance to start things off better than last year, however that's not exactly difficult considering the last new year sucked. I'm thinking that it'll just be another year to kid myself into thinking things will be better. Most people do that on the New Year and forget about it a week later.
    The only good thing will probably be that I'll (in theory) no longer be grounded. Whoopee.

But I wish that Heraman Cain was still in because I thought he would have been a great President. But it is too bad that he dropped out but I am sure that one of the canidates will do a much better job than Obama because he was a horrrible Presdent. It is kinda sad he is so bad that even me a little kid knows about how much he messed up. thank you for reading.

    Most people should enjoy 2012. They get a new look on things. You can always improve yourself. Show some random acts of kindness. You also get a new start on school to get better grades( I hope I do ).Also Try some sports,or in some way get more interactive.

    Commenting live from somewhere in the world is me, Selena. To me, next year is not about the world ending, it's not about the troops coming home or all the wars ending or world peace. Because there will always be another war, the same sad war that were always fighting and the same troops will go out again. The rumor that the world is ending will never cease because eventually the world will end. In 2012, I am not even looking forward to a fresh start, a new year. What I'm looking forward to is the same every year. It's that we humans understand our mistakes and correct them. That everyone who is determined to do something bad stops and thinks about what they do before they do it. Because sometimes we're too caught up in our life to worry about others. So in 2012, I hope that light really sparks in the world and everyone is mature enough to understand their mistakes and fix them. The world isn't perfect, but we can take it one step closer if we try.

    In 2012, I hope that the economy improves through creating jobs (with so many countries in debt crisis, the housing market bubble popped, etc). When the economy improves, the companies needs to hire more workers (to create more products), creating jobs. Later, the workers will spend the money, helping the economy. This process starts all over again.
