I’ve never understood the infamous New Year’s resolution. What’s so important about a single day (i.e., January 1) that warrants a different human behavior from what existed a day earlier (i.e., December 31)? People—myself included—should make resolutions all the time when they want to change, even if they make the resolution on June 19. I know, it sounds “soap-boxish,” but you can get away with that when it’s your own blog. :)

Happy New Year to both you and your computer!
