    A new year is like a blank book,

    and the pen is in your hands. It is your chance to write a beautiful story for yourself. Happy New Year.

    Let me tell you, 2015 sucked badly.

    But now it is 2016 and I don't have to worry about that. HAPPY NEW YEARS! My resolution is that this is a great year for not only me but my family and everyone else that had a pretty bad year last year.
