6:49 PM

5:56 PM

The prospect of a new year is exciting, invigorating. With a new year comes new opportunities. So in late December, you make resolutions. You ponder what your life could be, and this fantasy towers in comparison to how it feels right now. You make a promise, either privately or publicly, to be better in the new year. This is what I’m gonna do, you tell yourself, to make the new year great. These are my resolutions. 

Well, it’s a week into 2019. How are those resolutions holding up?
