Realities

“She was cheating on me, ripped a hole in me through which you could see tiny angels weeping.”

– Weeds

I like that quote, last year on this day I had an eerie feeling, a not-quite suspicion that something like that was looming. I was right.

Sometimes being right isn’t much fun, but my life has improved immeasurably since that day.

In other news my twenty-twelve marathon-training shoe decision has been made:

My Nike tweet-pledge:

I will: Run more. Run harder. Run longer. Run stronger. Run as if my life depends on it. Because it does. #MAKEITCOUNT http://nike.com/makeitcount

Calendrical

Why exactly do we celebrate the first day of a new year? I get the idea of a clean slate, new beginning, fresh start…etc. It’s just another year. Not much really changes, but it’s a national holiday and election day isn’t. Personally I think that election day should be a national holiday and that every eligible voter should be excused from work for at least the time it takes to go participate in democracy.

That’s just me though.

As for the flood of resolutions; I don’t make new year’s resolutions. If I find something that I feel I need to change I don’t save it up for the first. I just make the changes I need, then and there.

Don’t get me wrong, I like the idea that people can make positive changes in their lives, it’s just that something about the whole resolution system that smacks of commercialism and manipulation to me.

Maybe I’m a bit more cynical than I need to be. There’s something I can work on.

Happy 2012.
