standard 10 Ways NOT to Start the New Year

Tips for the New Year


Believe it or not, the new year is almost here!  Whether 2011 was good to you or bad to you, there are a few things we all need to remember as we get ready to ring in the new year.

Let’s start by saying that if you can’t handle your alcohol, don’t drink. It’s really quite simple. Alcohol is never an excuse for being stupid or irresponsible, and it is the culprit behind these first few ways you don’t want to start 2012.

Many of these are common sense, but I know a lot of people who do them anyway, so these are 10 ways that you do NOT want to start your new year.


1.  In the morgue.

I don’t know this from experience (thank God) and I hope not to find out any time soon, but I’m pretty sure the morgue isn’t a fun place to end up. Although those toe tags are quite fashionable, they will be just as fashionable when you’re 112 years old.

Since you’re in no hurry, do yourself and everyone around you a favor and do not drink and drive. Just as important, do not allow anyone else who’s been drinking to get behind the wheel. If they insist, don’t go with them.

2.  Behind bars for drinking and driving.

DUI’s are very expensive, and they can wreck your life and your career. Unless you don’t mind spending time in a cage, have thousands of dollars to fight a DUI, and don’t mind losing your license, do not drink and drive. And obviously if you kill someone, you’ll be staying there for a very long time. A couple hours of partying isn’t worth all that.



3.  Behind bars for fighting.

If you’re a mean drunk and you like to fight, limit your alcohol intake. Chances are that girl you’re going to end up fighting over is nothing but a two-bit ho that’s also screwing your best friend…..and half the other people at the party.


4.  Waking up naked next to a stranger (or two).

Alcohol is also not an excuse for being irresponsible and hooking up with random strangers, groups of people, etc. If you get super “friendly” when you’re drunk, walk away from the liquor. Otherwise, your friends will never let you live it down when you sleep with the creepy guy that no one will even talk to when they’re sober.


5.  Pregnant….or responsible for getting someone pregnant.

Babies are great. They are not so great if you don’t want one and can’t afford it. They are for life, they are expensive, and they kinda put a damper on future partying. If you’re going to have sex, wrap it up…..every single time.


6.  With an STD.

Ahh yes, the gifts that keep on giving!  Probably not the kind of gift you’d hoped you’d receive for the holidays. These are even nastier than getting a baby. Sure some of them are treatable, but HIV, HPV, and herpes never go away. A few minutes of fun isn’t worth a lifetime of suffering and/or dying over. They also really throws a wrench in the works of any future sexing you were hoping to do.

Let’s move past the alcohol offenses and on to additional ways you don’t want to start the new year.


7.  Going to see the new “Alvin and the Chipmunks” movie…. alone…and you’re 47.

If this is your plan for New Year’s day, you need to get a life. You’re pathetic. That is all.  LOL


8.  With a New Year’s resolution.

Don’t make one. They’re stupid. NO ONE keeps them. If you do make one, you’re pretty much guaranteeing that you will fail at whatever you resolved to do by about Jan. 10th.

It’s great to want to improve your life, but it’s easier to go the distance by making small changes.  If you jump in head first when the ball drops, you will soon realize that you’re burned out and you tried to do too much too soon.


9. In a bad relationship just because you don’t want to be alone.

Quit selling yourself short. Sometimes we need to take some time alone to find ourselves. Yes, I understand that when you’ve been single for 7 years, everyone starts to look like marriage material.

That’s not a good reason to settle for whoever comes along or to take back that ex that used to treat you like garbage. No one wants to be lonely, but that’s a whole lot better than being with someone that’s going to neglect or mistreat you.


10.  As one of the sheeple.

Do not blindly believe what the media and the government tell you.  If you do your own research, you’ll likely find that Ron Paul is the only logical choice for President in 2012.

The exception to that is if you’re too lazy to think for yourself or aren’t smart enough to make your own decisions in life. Some people feel they need the government to think for them and tell them how to live.  Hopefully, you know you’re capable of handling those things for yourself.

Wishing you all a happy new year and a safe, healthy, and blessed 2012!!
