...woopdi freakin' do.
I have never understood people fondness with a new year. People treat it like everything is going to change in the split second between one year and the next. It doesn't. The only thing that changes is the calender, one number, and the fiscal year for taxing.
I believe that the only real "new year" is when a season in your life changes. In my case it was a few months ago. That's when I sat down and wrote down a list of goals to work on between then and the end of '09. But these don't end right there. They include things like watch less television, stop drinking soda, exercise, read more classics, and submit some photos to a magazine. These aren't the type of goals that be reached and then forgotten about. It's a day to day thing. I think that is the problem with many resolutions. People resolve to lose __ pounds. Once said amount is reached they go back to all their old ways and the whole thing was pointless.
So...what am I trying to say with all this crap...not sure, so hold on. I guess my point is I think goals are way cooler then resolutions, the whole new year's thing is dumb, and when will they stop making the stupid number sunglasses??
Anyway, happy first of January...I love Dick Clark! :)
