Well, it’s 2014, and I’m sitting on the floor in cat jammies contemplating this whole resolution business. I’ve come to the conclusion that I think it’s pretty lame. Simply because most people forget all about it after a month, if they even act on it at all.
BUT HEY. I’ve settled with a way to be just as festive as any other media-driven American without having to deal with the realization that I have no motivation to promise myself anything, and especially keep that promise for a year. I’m just gonna make a backwards resolution. A fail-proof system, like when a parent buys a dirty santa gift specifically for their kid and has them pick the package they brought from under the tree so the kid will be happy with his gift. This ruins the authenticity of the game for everyone else.
1. I don’t want a sunburn in 2014. I know the sun is obviously going to burn my skin; therefore, I must protect it.
(See, this is a backwards way to say I want to wear more sunscreen. As you can see by my feet, I’m the color of alabaster)
2. I don’t want to go a single day of 2014 without drinking lots of water.
(Obviously, I want to stay hydrated. Sneaky, sneaky)
Sure, it’s cheating; but, I feel fulfilled and revived, like I’m ready to turn over a new fabulous leaf.
Okay, I lied. I feel like I’ve been trampled by a herd of antelope. Happy New Year, y’all.
