    Competition Christmas

    [rez-uh-loo-shuhn]

    So for the past week I’ve been trying to determine my New Year’s Resolution(s). Normally I am not one for making big huge resolutions, especially while ending one year and bringing in the New. I quit making New Year’s resolutions when I was a kid. I learned at a young age how easily I can disappoint myself. But now that I’ve gotten older and time is running out, well, I think I have changed my mind about this whole resolution-making business.
