F@#k Your Resolution

And what I mean by that is, fuck letting your resolutions be something you torture yourself about in the year to come. New beginnings should be about growth and goal-setting, not holding yourself to ultimatums.

Pretend I am wearing red glasses and gut-sucking pantyhose and according to a TV network I am some sort of expert about everything.
