Going to hell

Do your New Year’s resolutions go in one year and out of the other? Or are they just a way of making a fresh start on old habits?


As Mark Twain once said:

New Year’s Day… now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.

Have far down the road to perdition have you come?

By the way, remember to go to PaddyK and check out our Blog Carnival! The circus is in town… and it certainly puts the Blo into Blog! I’ll be hosting the carnival next time, so if you want to jump on the bandwagon and bang your own drum, then send me some links to appropriate posts about your experiences of living in a foreign country.

    I’m from a small village with no name but it’s close to a larger village, Helgum. Hell gum. That’s something I avoid saying in England.

    I don’t bother to make new year’s resolutions. I don’t see the point. Most people who make them, don’t keep them. I know I would most certainly be one of those people. I just try to do the best I can from one year to the next.

    my resolution to stop moaning about the weather: fail. To be motivated and do stuff:fail. To read more books: pass. To read fewer blogs: fail.

    I resolved to improve things I already do so I can’t exactly fail! Not this early anyway.

    When I saw this title I thought you were going to HELL NORWAY…I’ve been there once…to Hell and back….not really that impressive actually….

    Hmmm, my resolutions are going 50/50….I’m exercising and trying to eat better but haven’t turned my tv off as much as I should….it’s just hard while it’s so dark and icy outside…and I don’t have enough books yet to read…ugh..I know, excuses!!!!

  12. I used to make resolutions (briefly) but I never would keep them so I just quit. Nothing like quitting before you started, right?
