Happy New Year!
Can you believe it’s 2017? Where are the hovercars and the robot nannies, that’s what I want to know.
Do you have any New Year’s Resolutions? Such a cliché (which is my way of saying, I’m too lazy to even make a NY resolution, much less keep one). But, I did have a friend of mine tell me the other day that a bunch of her other friends were picking a word that would embody what they wanted out of the next year. That idea stuck, and I’ve been thinking about it since. On New Years Day, I found a word and so far, I still like it. My word?
I’m reclaiming my power! (Hear that, assholes?)
Remember what it was like to be a teenager and know that life had every possibility – I miss that feeling. There’s no reason why I can’t recapture that, right? The power of youth, that’s what I’m reclaiming.
I’m going to have some fucking willpower. What will you do when your best friend is a best-selling author who weighs 90 pounds? (You will force feed me some chocolate cake, while we travel the world in style and luxury, that’s what.)
Physically powerful – what I’m going to become so I can kick some ass, literally.
Also, I’m definitely going to swear more this year.
So, there you go.
Tip for 2017. DO NOT listen to A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness in your cubicle at work at 2:30 in the afternoon, because there are a lot of people that will look at you funny as they walk by and see you sobbing while mascara streams down your face.
Here’s to the death of 2016!
I’m looking forward to 2017. What a nice change!
P.S. I had no idea that it had been a month since you posted. I’m a terrible friend. My new year’s resolution is…
P.P.S. I created a mug for you on Zazzle. They took my money and then decided that it was full of copyright material, and cancelled my order. The minute I figure a way around it, I’ll send it to you!!!!!!
