Happy New Year! I am both fascinated and appalled by New Year’s resolutions. I do not usually make them, because for the most part I think they are ineffective. On the other hand, I do strive to better myself every year, and am always interested in hearing how others are pursuing their goals.
Did you make a new year’s resolution this year? Vote in my resolutions poll, and post your resolution as a comment.
See ya on the Net,
