Next Year's Resolution

Dear Old Self,

What gives you the right, presumptuous resolution maker, to bind me with your oaths? Is it possible that you have not yet learned that a promise poisons everything? Well! Permit me to spread the poison evenly! I will make a promise to you as recompense for your hubris and conceit in thinking yourself qualified to command me, your self-evident superior: I will foil all your best laid plans and break in pieces all your pretty pictures! 'Your' New Year belongs to me. Do not forget it!

Sincerely,
Your Ghost of Ego Future

Your future self has things figured out. Still, he seems like a real asshole.

But I can't blame you; his behavior isn't yours to control.

Yeah, he's kind of a jerk, but it's all good. I've put some plans in motion that are really going to kick his ass.
