I can say I remember thinking, 'oh, this is going to be the first thing I do in 2009' and then doing something. Don't ask me what was the first thing I did in 2009, or the first thing I told someone when they turned 15 or 18.... (this is totally true, I DO this kind of things, and I DO forget them)
So, one of this year's resolutions for me, will be stop doing that.
It doesn't really bother me, and I don't consider it a significant waste of time, but I just realize is a complete stupidity...
Goodbye 'first-think-i-did-in-[fill in the blank]' tradition!
