    Never Seen Any Point To It Myself.

    What make's January 1st any different from any other day of the year ? If I want to do or change somthing, I just do it. If I dont then I just dont. If I decide I want to do somthing I need to do it now because the more I think about it the less likely I am to do it. My Best.

    I haven't for years and I didn't this year

    either. Most of the ones people make are pretty boring anyway! I mean the choices are like: Join a gym - I don't know if there is one round here actually and at least I'm honest enough to say I can't be ar$ed (which doesn't mean I'm fat or unfit - I'm neither) Give up smoking...

    I Stopped Making Them

    I have never been able to keep all those promises I made to myself on new years. So I stopped lying and became honest.
