It’s the same every year isn’t it? New Year Resolutions. New Starts. Sweeping statements about what the new year will bring, how it will compare to the last. It’s worse with decades of course. Then the whole ten years in generalized in a few words.
Still, I’m not going to do that. I’m not going to summarize 2007 or try to guess what will happen in 2008.Â It’s really more of the same. It’s election year in the US, so plenty of bullshit coming from that direction, as each candidate tries to convince the voters that they’re the saving grace for the nation.
Personally, I shall strive to remain healthy first and foremost. Without that, everything else fades into insignificance almost. Money? Well it’s the way the world goes around, so I shall attempt to make more, but again, it’s an ongoing thing, and not something I start each January.
January is also the month when I get another year older too, although I’ve long given up worrying about birthday celebrations.
Meanwhile, I shall drink another glass ofÂ cool fresh 2008 tap water. Will this year be a good vintage?
