Out with the old, in with the new…

…as long as the ‘new’ isn’t cartridge razors – they work for some, but not for me.

It is the time of year when most people gets a little introspective, wondering how they measured up to their own standards the last year and how they can improve their performance in the year ahead… the time when one is most likely to reexamine ones goals in life, and make resolutions that will be broken within a few weeks.

Unsurprisingly, it is much easier to say one is going to do something than to actually do it.

It is also – at least up here in Norway – the darkest time of the year.. the sun is coming back, but it will be weeks or even months before the sun comes back.. but as it was pointed out to me a few weeks back when I was even further north; you don’t really learn to enjoy the sun and summer until you lived through a dark winter.

So.. here I stand. The old year behind me, the new ahead of me. Looking forward to brighter times, and without any resolutions other than to keep on shaving, keep on enjoying it, and keep on telling you all about it.

Happy New Year everybody – take care of yourself and your loved ones.
