LQP Asks: What is your New Year's resolution?
Oh, the agony of waking up on Jan. 1.
And that's not a reference to any madness that may have happened the night before.
It's a nod to what happens when a person realizes that yet another new year has arrived, with so much potential, and along with it, the pressure to resolve to accomplish new things in the next 365 days – or 366, as it happens this year.
Losing weight, quitting smoking, getting rich, being kinder and more patient, getting organized, going back to school, being more punctual ... the list could go on and on. It's enough to cow some people into not making resolutions at all.
And yet, even when they're not called "resolutions," the goals are still there, knocking around in the backs of our minds.
