The year 2018 is new, but there are signs it will be a great year. A poll carried out by a news service asked whether people were optimistic or pessimistic about the year ahead. Everyone responded positively. They all thought 2018 would be a wonderful year for themselves and the world. Everyone believed that 2018 would be much better than 2017. A spokesman said the responses made him happy. He wished everyone good luck.
The survey asked people about their life and about the Earth. Most people were confident of carrying out their New Year resolutions. In particular, to get in shape, to stop putting things off, save money, and improve their English. Others will use their smartphones less, eat less fast food, and tidy their homes. Most people were positive about the world. They thought there would be fewer wars, more love and peace, less pollution, and more kindness for the poor.
