Mile High Makeout: Fresh start
Yes, I know a lot of people like to use a new year as an opportunity to get a fresh start. It might just mean that you clean the stains out of your toilet bowl finally, or you put clean sheets on your bed, or you floss. Some people even make New Year's resolutions. Usually, these are pledges related to self-improvement - weight loss, fitness, smoking cessation, nose picking, public flatulation and angry driving are all common targets.
Though I rarely make these resolutions, I'm actually a big fan of them, and - though I have no data to support this - I suspect a lot of good has happened because of them. I have a good friend who has resolved to quit smoking (cliche, perhaps, but that doesn't make it any less worthy), and I think she'll actually do it, largely because of the New Year. I mean, as long as they're worthy and realistic, and unless you resolve to flick more people in the forehead or increase your heroin intake, what harm could they possibly do?
