Every year I make the same new years resolution. That’s to be charming and admirable. I always make good on that promise. Unless I don’t and somebody hates me for some obscene reason.
I was going to do some sort of a year in review type thing. But that stuff isn’t relevant today. The new year is a time to toss the old one in the trash. It’s a time to start fresh. It’s a new year and a new era.
Of course forgetting the past in general is kind of infeasible, especially when girls in high school keep reminding you of it. Thanks, girls.
It’s not that we should necessarily ignore the past and deprive it of any attention. The past is too finicky for that. Sure, usually we celebrate the past and then proceed to make the same exact mistakes we did the decade before. The most important reason we do this is so we have something to celebrate. Even if you’re not as shocked that the calender successfully transitioned as the guys on TV, take a minute to relax and reflect or just have a cup of coffee if you will (I don’t know what you do). Here’s to hoping whatever might have occurred between us in the past, we can just let bygones be bygones. Even you, Mister Burns. And now… onward!
