Welcome to the 9th of January, when you’re crap at life again

You woke up on January 1st (at mid day because getting in at 4am is rough) with all the ambition and motivation in the world. You jump up (with a pounding headache and the intense urge to vomit) and try to pretend you aren't as hungover as you actually are. Don't be concerned you are [...]
