New Year's Resolutions

Happy New Year, Schneckens!
2015 seems like such a hopeful year, doesn't it? At least it'll be nice to write it down - my '4' for 2014 always looked a tad rushed! Yes, folks, I decide if it'll be a good year through the way I am able to present it on a piece of paper. It's things like this that befuddle me in why I am still single. It's kinda like that Friends episode when Monica is sick and Chandler doesn't want to have sex with her because she is all groggy and stuff. I guess it's obvious I'm watching Friends right now. Come on, 'fess up, who got drunk last night and woke up with a Russian doll in their bed? Just me? In my defence, she had cookies and I was trying to sober up.

The New Year is a chance for new beginnings and as drunkish me tweeted (she was a corker this year!):
"It's the new year which means that we have a blank canvas that should be painted with something beautiful and meaningful for our new year."
Wow, that actually sounds quite inspirational and has a purpose. The new year has so much to offer and we should take it all with our hands and make something that actually means something to us. Huh, maybe this year I've come to understand the beauty of the world around me and - oh wait, the next tweet...
"Yet with the amount of alcohol I've downed tonight, it'll most likely be covered in my sick, tears and possibly a Portuguese guy."
So okay, a leopard can't change its spots, but my first tweet did actually have some depth to it, even if it was influenced by my evil BBF vodka and it did sound a tad like something Jaden Smith would say.. It doesn't matter though! This year has only just begun and we can do whatever we want with it - except murder, don't do that! Without trying to sound too much like Jaden Smith, there's a reason why it's called 'Resolution' - we always re do the same thing each year that we see will be the solution to our pitiable lives that we call the human experience (or something less dramatic.) Therefore, maybe this year we shouldn't go for the typical resolution; maybe we shouldn't promise to diet and that we should do that whenever we can. Maybe giving something up shouldn't be a promise we set for the whole year and it should be a learning experience that is actually learnt from. At the end of 2014, I decided that I wouldn't set a resolution because it's an added pressure on me that sets a striking amount of guilt and shame if I don't succeed it. This is why I decided that I would do something beneficial for me and I want to do, but not have the expectations placed upon me. I will continue my work with mental health in whichever way I can and I will take care of myself, physically and mentally. Last year, I vowed to lose the weight and that went dramatically as it became clear that I had a dangerous attitude towards weight and food. I want to take care of myself this year, so I guess that is my "resolution" - take care of myself. Something so obvious, but often forgotten in our daily, stressful lives.

Drunk me, however, had, *ahem* bigger ideas..
" "
I'm doing well this year. I did not fuck the Portuguese guy (I'm not even sure which Portuguese guy I am referring to..) I did eat the dips though. Salsa. Sexy.

Here's to the New Year!

Toodles :)
