It’s this time of the year again: holiday season. We are buying crap for other people that they don’t need, we are gorging on food that will make us sick and we will all pretend to be one happy familiy, just this one time of the year. Aren’t I the cheerful type… But inevitably, as New Year’s Eve comes around, we will get to the point where we have seriously had enough of it. All this mindless consumerism leaves a shallow aftertaste. You can only stand your crazy relatives for so long and if you eat one more heap of Swedish meatballs you will probably throw up at Aunt’s Molly’s feet. Serves her right, you never liked her Pecan pie.
No, enough is enough. Now is the time for change: Loose weight! Stop smoking! Start reading! Find a boyfriend! A change-embracing, resolute mob will storm the fitness studios of this world, buy the latest eSmoking gadget, order a bunch of self help books from Amazon and create a profile on match.com. We’ve got this, I can feel it! This year is going to be different!
