New Year’s Resolution

A New Year’s Resolution is a promise that you make with yourself starting on New Year’s Day. Some people give up smoking or junk food. Some people vow to exercise twice a week. Some people decide to volunteer at a soup kitchen or to help the less fortunate. It really doesn’t matter what your New Year’s Resolution is because you’re never going to follow through on it. A New Year’s Resolution is just a promise to yourself that you haven’t broken yet. You might be good and follow the plan for a week or two, but you’ll slip into your old habits eventually. It’s yet another way to disappoint yourself. I’ve only made one resolution that has stuck and that was the year I decided to stop doing New Year’s Resolutions.

Another New Year’s Eve

Cheers to another New Year’s Eve. New Year’s Eve is the last day of the year. You celebrate it by getting drunk, drinking champagne, and trying to make out with someone at midnight. It’s one of those nights that you’ll plan ahead days, weeks, or months in advance, but you’ll always be disappointed if you have expectations. It has the potential to be amazingly epic if you just wing it and go with the flow. New Year’s Eve is also a time of reflection, a time to think of all the broken promises you’ve made to yourself over the last year. It’s also the time to pat yourself on the back for your many small victories. You’re another year older and another year wiser, and now you get to celebrate. 2013 was awesome but now it’s time to experience 2014. I hope you all stay safe and wish you all a Happy New Year!

New Year’s Day

Congratulations, you made it to another year. Hopefully you wake up with a headache and a hangover and someone lying next to you. That’s usually a good indication of a great New Year’s Eve. New Year’s Day is like hitting the reset button. A new year is a new start. Most people have a list of New Year’s Resolutions like quitting smoking or saving more money. Most people give up by February, but at least you tried to change. It’s not worth much, but it’s worth something. 2013. It’s officially the future. Can we stop doing Gangnam Style now? Please?
