And this rounds it off. Before you ask, yes, I'm a little drunk, but I'm being sober in these blogs.

So sooner or later someone in One Piece is going to die for reals again. Might be someone like Cobra who we don't really care about any more, might be someone like Jinbe. Might even be Shanks. We don't know yet.

Don't tell anyone but I'm leaning towards the Shanks dying theory.

But here's the thing - it's a fine line between worrying about something that might happen in the distant future, and not caring at all about the future.

I've been in some dark places in my past. And just going along with life's shit as it happened didn't help me get out of them. So the third and final thing I'm going to ask you to do is the hardest one, but still just as important.

Plan something. It might be just going over to a friend's house to chill and play games, it might be a weekend away. But plan something that you want to do and make sure you remember to do it. That's not so hard, is it? I'm not asking you to make sweeping ridiculous New Year's Resolutions like get back in shape because that's hard work. You don't do hard work like that, one big great glaring obstacle. You do one little thing at a time.

And for God's sake don't be too serious about life.

Merry Christmas.
