We all do it to ourselves , almost without fail, every year – you set the bar way to high and before you know it, you’ve failed to make proper plans for Valentine’s Day, and you’ve already fucked up half of the things you’ve set out for yourself to achieve or accomplish. Welcome to month two of every year of your adult life – the month where people’s dreams go to die…

But hey, if you don’t at least try, you will never know just how hard you fail or how close you came to succeeding. I don’t want to be all negative, so here is a list of the most common new year’s resolutions people tend to break, along with some kak advise from myself on how to fail a little bit more gently. There are actually eleven resolutions, but you know that because you’re reading this on the watt bike at the Virgin Active…

  1. Eat Healthier and Diet or eat better
    This is supposed to be an easy one. Humans have to eat sleep, poop and be awake. Those are the bare basics, china. If you eat better, you will poop better. If you poop better, you will sleep better and if you sleep better, the times when you are awake will be a lot less poopy. So why do we keep fucking this up? Less, sugar, less bread, less fat and less meat? It should probably be as easy as that, but for some reason we fail at it. I would start by dopping less hard tack. Or at least drinking brandy with water in stead of Coke. It looks fancier, for starters. The rest should follow.
  2. Spend More Time with Family
    For various reasons this is near impossible for a lot of people. They might live in another country or you don’t get along. Some people don’t even have family. If things are totally desperate, I would suggest trying to make at least one new good friend this year. Sometimes friends are considered family.
  3. Be Less Stressed
    Again, easier said than done as different things stress different people. A way to approach this, is to tick off at least one of the items on this list. Number 1 (eating healthier and cutting down on booze) would totes bring stress levels down, fokken guaranteed!
  4. Finding a significant other, bumping more uglies in the dark or or getting married.
    *opens Chappies bubblegum and reads the inside*
    “Did you know? It is actually 100% fokken OK not to have a significant other.”
    Oprah Winfrey, Sheryl Crow, Coco Chanel, Al Pacino and Ludwig van Beethoven never go married and they’re totally fine and sleeping on piles of money. Except for Ludwig van Beethoven. He is fucking dead of course. But he made tit music.
    Focus on yourself. If sex and a relationship is really that important to you, it should follow naturally if you look after yourself. Otherwise, focus on fixing the little things first and then follow your hormones and wet bits around in the dark or on Tinder.
  5. Get Out of Debt and Save Money
    This is virtually impossible. Most of us are forever paying off credit cards, car loans and home loans. If you’re one of those idiots who have clothing accounts… *poesklap* snap out of it! Also remember that you don’t have to get out of debt THIS year, but you can get closer. Start settling the debts with the highest interest first. Another good tip is to have a 1 year goal, a 5 year goal and a 10 year goal. Maybe settle your small debts within the one year goal, pay off the bigger debts within the 5 year goal and work towards a plan to settle your house in 10 years in stead of the remaining 14 years, for example. Also, you don’t need to be in perpetual debt with a car payment forever. Once paid off, sit on your fucking hands. Maybe drive it for another 2 years and pretend that you’re still paying it off but shove that payment into your bond?
  6. Travel to New Places
    This doesn’t mean you have to go overseas. Go see Soweto if you haven’t yet, take a drive to your nearest nature reserve or go see some cheap touristy place that you’ve never been to. South Africa is massive and our country guaranteed has loads of awesome places you haven’t been to. It doesn’t have to be a massively big move or expensive exercise, but at least it is an easy thing to tick off your list. It might inspire you to klap the other stuff on your list as well.
  7. Learn Something New
    The Mona Lisa has no eyebrows. There. You’ve learned something new.
    Not?
    Ok, then get a cheap guitar and learn some chords. Here are the most basic 6 chords. Your fingers go where the black dots go. You’ll be able to play thousands of songs:

  8. Volunteer
    Please don’t. You see a lot of people volunteering at dog and cat shelters or feeding the homeless soup. Unless you’re committed, please don’t do this and please don’t post photos on Facebook about it, because if you stop doing it at the same time you stop going to gym, I’m going to call out our ass on it. Virtue signalling should be criminalized.
  9. Quit Smoking
    This was one of the hardest things I ever managed to succeed at. After smoking more than 40 Lucky Strike cigarettes a day, I haven’t touched one in 3 years and 2 months. Here is an entire article I wrote 3 years ago on how to try and kick the habit.
  10. Be good, be kind, be better…
    …be the best you that you can be, or be whatever the fuck vague assessment concept that you’re trying to fool yourself with. Whatever you do, try and do it without telling people that you’re doing it. This #newyearnewme kak will just set you up for failure. Do you know how you’ll know that you’re succeeding at this?
    People will say stuff like: “You know, Karen, there is something different about you. You seem like less of a poes…”
Head over to
