    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.

    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.
