My Forced New Year’s Resolution

A lot of folks view the New Year as a time for resolutions, because clearly last year’s version of themselves sucked, and THIS year is an opportunity to better fit American advertising’s vision of what they should be. For this reason, I have always hated resolutions because it’s taken me a number of years to be happy with who I am, and I don’t see the need to hate on the last 12 months of myself.
