New Years resolutions are stupid. There is no reason for someone to make a list of things they want to do when chances are they will not do them. If a person wants to change or try something new they are not going to wait for the new year. No one says “I want to quit smoking, that’s going to be my New Years resolution” no, you start it as soon as possible or on a day that has some personal significance, you don’t wait until the middle of winter to start.
And to everyone that insists that a new year will bring them everything they ever wanted just because they make their Facebook status “2012 may not have been my year but 2013 will be”, no. Shut up. If you want it to be “your year” do something about it. Don’t wait for it to be good by chance. If you don’t try for something great it simply will not be great. If you tried to make it great and only if you tried and it didn’t work then may you make said Facebook status.
