In what must be a radical departure from my New Year traditions, I have decided to celebrate the new year only after exams end next week. So what if it's more than a little out of sync with, oh, the rest of the world. I think the new year shud begin on a happy note (hence, the new year wish, of course). And happy notes are certainly the exact antithesis of cruel never-ending, overstaying-their-welcome-by-a-month exams.
Now that routine exam frustration is out of the way, my second radical departure is that I make no new year resolutions this year. Since the go-for-a-morning-walk resolution lasted for all of ten days in 2010, not to mention the dozen resolutions in years past that didn't really thrive beyond January, I've decided to forgo them altogether.
Of course, this piece of good ole Calvin wisdom certainly helped.
And for all you regular folks starting your new year today, I wish you all a happy new year. :)
