This is RobertX8Y, making a new handle for myself: RobertV2.

RobertV2 is like a New Year's Resolution. It's the new, improved Robert.

RobertV2 hasn't posted anything yet -- neither an original post nor a comment on anyone's post. This means that RobertV2 is (so far) more polite and (...checking my word count here...) writes more sparingly than the old Robert did. This could be a good thing, I suppose.

New Year's Resolutions are like the first half-day of school in a new school year when I was in grade school. In the first half day of a new school year, I was caught up in all my assignments and nothing really bad had happened yet. Plus, the classroom was very neat and clean, and the teacher seemed pleasant and well-organized.

But not the first half-day of second grade. That one started out differently. On that morning, about 5 minutes before it was time to go to school, I suddenly realized that I hadn't gotten any school supplies to take to school, like pencils, paper, glue, scissors, etc. I felt really bad, and worried, about that. My parents were raising 4 children (hence too busy to manage all the details such as school supplies every single time) and both of them were at work, so I called up one of them to tell the problem, and got one of the more memorable pieces of advice I've ever received, which was to just take a pencil and a couple of sheets of paper to school, and while there write down what school supplies I should get, and then we'd get them that evening for me to take to school the next day. The calm, complete absence of panic in the advice (so different from what I was feeling when I initiated the call), and the simplicity of it, is what I remember. The rest of the first half-day of that school year was good.

It's good to engage civil with people...

I did that when I first joined the opp...

My advice would be to reread anything you write in response to another poster and clean it up...

I've since given up on this resolution... But my failure should not discourage you..

Happy new year

You are usually pretty thoughtful in your comments unlike my own sometimes cringeworthy impulsive random responses to sheeple! I need to work on my kindness responses!!!
