As I may have mentioned before, New Year holidays are probably my fave. I think I like the appeal that suddenly one month, you get a chance to start completely over. The gluttonous lifestyle from recent days seems magically erased, and you can pursue projects with renewed vigor with the outlook of “this time, I’m going to make it.” As we usher in the Year of the Pig, there’s even a second chance for those resolutions that may have slipped through cracks since January 01. I’m still compiling my list of what I want this year to be, but I think I’m going to try to tackle the mother-load – trying to act like this adult that the rest of the world seems to believe I am. Of course, that’s the great thing – you can make this year into anything, and as a great artist said, “I don’t get many things right the first time” so I’ll take what I can get.

I should also add that Presidents Day is also a lovely holiday, because I get a three day weekend!
