I’ve don’t believe in New Years resolutions. I don’t know precisely when I stopped believing in them, but if I were to venture a guess I’d say it was around when teachers stopped asking us what our resolution would be. So it could be that I haven’t really had one since elementary school. It’s very arbitrary to choose this one day to decide to start some kind of initiative to somehow change your life for the better, because that in itself is procrastinating.

As we know, that’s the primary reason that people don’t ever follow up on their resolutions beyond the first initial day or week that they proclaim it. I might believe a person more if they made a big decision by themselves without some special day to do it. To me that would indicate they had throught it through rather than forcing themselves to come up with something on the big day.

Note: I know that not everyone checks out my comic on the weekends so if you’re suddenly surprised by the new layout, Kick in the Head 2.0 went online at the beginning of the new year, and the full explanation can be read here.
