2012 has come, and it seems the end of the world is upon us, the way it seems to be upon us every few years since '99. I'm scared. *yawn*
According to the Mayan calendar, the human race doesn't make it to the end of the year. Or to Christmas, for that matter (the last day on the calendar is December 23. Anyone of these geniuses think that maybe they ran out of space?). I guess that means you must be a hopeless optimist to make resolutions. After all, if the world ends in a shade over 11 months, what's the point in vowing to change yourself, to extend your life, or be healthier?
I couldn't answer that for you. I'm a hopeless optimist. I have a list of resolutions. My "Self-Improvement Plan," that's what I call it. And here I am, sharing it with the ether. Happy New Year to you.
