On the one hand, I feel like I should continue this week's theme of blogging about the previous year and post my resolutions for the coming year.

Some special people are the magical straight piece, slipping in where the other pieces have created the perfect hole for it, doing no work but getting all the credit.
In real life, I believe these people would be classified as lucky bastards.
