Here are my new year's resolutions

In response to Lili's newsletter, a reader shares her new year's resolutions: 

1. I will try very hard to be more selfish. Yes, that’s right, more selfish. Because, as the song goes, “It seems the more I give, the less I get”, and I am tired of all the one way traffic coming my way.

2. I will try to expect less from my family, because, as the song goes... "and I am tired of being let down."

3. I will try to expect less from my job and the brass, because, as the song goes... "and I am tired of expecting equity and fairness and being disappointed."

4. I will try to stop procrastinating so much – but I may only start on that next week!

5. Above all, I WILL have more fun!
