You have to wonder; did we forget to pay our season renewal because it’s taking time to download spring? The cold season has overstayed its welcome.

And just like that 2017 is over, and as 2018 is about to commence, we find ourselves haunted by the ghosts of broken promises and abused excuses of the previous year that we hope to purge by jotting down a ridiculous list of promises to be broken eventually. Who are we fooling? [...]
