A Promise is a Promise is a Promise is a Joke

I must say I feel terrible. No, not literally but figuratively speaking. I have neglected my poor blog. And what bothers me the most is that I have had PLENTY to blog about. So, as I sit here and sip on my delicious alcoholic beverage during lunch, provided by the good graces of my friend RaShaun's liquor cabinet (thanks!), I am going to start off by writing about New Year's Resolutions.

Personally, I think New Year's Resolutions are one of the stupidest things I hear come out of people's mouths. People always say, "I'm going to do this or that..." and the truth of the matter is; they don't. This falls under my category of words that have lost their meaning, like; "I love you" & "I would never fill in blank.." or "I promise". These are all collective words that have lost absolute meaning to me. Not because I am personally jaded or anything; I am not only experienced, but a keen witness to these words being both misused as well as abused.

Let's face it; society as a whole sucks. I mean really sucks. But that's because the majority is either ridiculously lazy or they just say shit like, "This year my New Year's resolution is to...blah blah blah" simply because they want to be part of the conversation. Come on people! You know you're not doing half the shit you said you would, this year. Very few of us do. But go fuck yourself if you don't and stop letting your stupid mouth write checks your body can't cash. Learn some dedication and perhaps you might find yourself either accomplishing goals you set or looking like a fool in front of people like me who remember the stupid shit you "swore to do" this year.

Example of a promise to be kept by me: I promise to be more cynical, more sarcastic and more apathetic than I was last year. Trust me, fuck-face; I won't let you down.
