    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Oh Yeah? F**k Your New Year's Resolution


    To all those people who had, cocked and loaded, a New Year's resolution to go to the gym on January first: the fact that you're unwilling to pull the trigger until an arbitrary date makes a much more poignant statement than any resolution.

    Here's a crazy idea: how about doing it right fucking now? I mean now, not when you finish reading this, enn oh double-you now. What? You're still reading this? Ok, then I'll just assume you're telling me you're in ridiculous shape; you've got cardio like Arm Lancestrong and can deadlift a water buffalo. Good for you, then.

    If that didn't describe you, you must have just gotten back from a crazy, balls-to-the wall workout where you came close to or actually puked once or twice all over your stupid-looking shoes. Great. Now wait a few hours (24 or so) and then do it again, rinse, repeat.

    See how that **** works? It's almost like magic; getting off your ass grants you the magical powers of accomplishing things. And making it a habit means you don't need any stupid fucking resolution.

    Happy New Year; who gives a ****? The only date that matters is now.

    New Year's Resolutions are BS anyways. Just another excuse for me to get drunk, like St. Patty's. I'm not even Irish (I'm Asian).

    Oh well, didn't get up early to start jogging like I planned. I guess I'll wait until next year to change!

    Yes, well put. My take on this, from the Herald:

    We know the year's ending, but what does this mean? It's not like the next year will be magically different, some new world of achievement and glee. And if it is, it won't be because the calendar has clicked over - it'll be because we've changed, or our circumstances have done so.

    In short, the end of the year is a handy time to take stock, but it's meaningless as far as actual change goes. If this year was horrible, next year is unlikely to be different unless we make it so.

    This is partly why New Year's events are often not really celebrations - they're obliterations. We get blind to annihilate the shame, disappointment or frustration of the last 52 weeks, not to welcome the next ones.

    This is a perfect way to start the next year badly: on a note of amnesia or nausea, and the flight from fact.
