Stop Making New Year's Resolutions, You Idiot
Have you ever had a New Year's resolution? They are pretty silly, aren't they? You tell yourself, on the stroke of midnight that you will: lose weight / gain weight / study harder / study less / spend more time with your loved ones / give yourself more time / develop a skill / buy all the video games but by March you find yourself on a dusty highway holding a live chicken with a man wearing a lungi telling you that the pickup truck is out of petrol because his son drank it all and now you can't make it to the ferry on time to attend your significant other's cousin's birthday party – also you have a significant other, bet you didn't see that coming. No, it's not the person you thought of just now.
I hope you have an interesting year.
