2. Quit smoking 

It gives us bad breath, it's not attractive and it's bad for our health. But they taste so good...

This is the year that we're going to fit into that little summer dress for Angie's wedding right? We'll write out diet plans and use a calorie counter app. Perfect. We'll start tomorrow. Now, where's the chocolate... 

4. Join the gym

Doing exercise releases happy endorphins that will leave us feeling GREAT! Or so they say... We'll go tomorrow.

6. Find true love

No more flakey people from Tinder, we looking for a real, solid relationship with no drama. But then again, that requires effort...

7. Start a hobby 

Or we could just chill out, relax and take each day as it comes. 

We're bored of having nothing to talk about at parties. Maybe we'll take up horse riding, or starting salsa, or knitting...

8. Who cares?

Happy New Year!
