A New Year

As I've grown older and more cynical- January 1st has become a day like any other. So it marks the first day of a new year- who cares? It's just another holiday where we indulge in food, drink and over commercialization, right? To top things off, we set a bunch of lofty goals about our lives and waistlines, only to forget about them by the end of January. 

Some of us jump into the New Year and all of its shiny newness with a sense of hope, while us pragmatists scoff at the entire idea and just drag our sorry butts from one year into the next.

I'd like this year to be different. There are so many things I would like to accomplish; so many ideas I would like to see into fruition. This year I see a need for some serious change to take place, and while I don't believe that the New Year will magically usher in that change; I have decided to use it as a symbolic motivator.

Here's to a truly New Year. Cheers!
