You’ve heard the age-old clichés: Live every day like it’s your last. There’s no time like the present. Don’t sweat the small stuff. And everyone’s favorite - live, laugh, love.
Like water off a duck’s back, they’re all sayings that no longer resonate, because people have heard them far too much throughout their lives.
While many believe that cliches don’t apply to reality because they’re overly used and too simple to be practical, there’s residents in Watford City that would argue otherwise. Recollecting the course of events that happened in each of their lives in 2022, community members could probably agree that it was hardship that inadvertently brought them to a place where they can live, laugh, love their lives in 2023.
So now that 2022 is in the rearview, what do local residents hope to reap and sow in the year to come, anyway?
