Why I Don't Have New Year Resolutions 1/8

Why I Don't Have New Year Resolutions 1/8

I don't even plan going to the gym until probably the end of the year, honestly.

It's the new year and I'm sure most of us have already started working on our New Year's Resolution—or maybe you just don't have any. But if you are one of those people that woke up early on January 1st to go to the gym, then congratulations, buddy!

I hope the diet goes well, I say, as I eat another slice of pepperoni pizza.

However, if you started the year and don't have any clue of what you want to accomplish this 2018, then just know you're not alone. I, personally, don't have one. I'm not good at setting goals for myself. It's hard for me to get around them since I push myself most of the time.

So, as of January 8th, my resolution list is still empty. However, I don't think it is that big of a deal. For years I've kidded myself saying I would go to the gym. And how many times did I go to the gym in 2017? Two times.

I even said I was going to go on a diet. Did it happen? No. Storytime: one time, I started a diet with my mom. I only lasted 3 hours... Yeah, let that sink in.

Also, another resolution people like is to not let anybody come in their lives and ruin it. Haha, well I'm a sucker for those. I let people run me over with monster trucks.

For some reason, people want to be nicer at the beginning of every year? Like, how can people be nice? I don't get it. The other day, I was trying to apologize to my friend's boyfriend over some dumb thing I did. At the end of the conversation, I told him I was getting sick of being nice. I'm just not a nice person at all.

Also, people have traveling as one of their resolutions... How? I can't even afford the bus that takes me back home from campus sometimes.

I still get surprised as to how some people actually accomplish the goals they established at the beginning of the year. I've never been able to accomplish them myself. I'm the person memes talk about. You know, those sad memes? They're about me.

But then, I guess resolutions just weren't meant for me. But if you have been doing pretty well on your resolutions for 2018, I hope you achieve all of them. As for me? New year, new disappointments.

13 Taylor Swift Lyrics About Love

“We could get married. Have 10 kids and teach em how to dream."


Taylor Swift is the only reason I've gotten through every love, and every break-up. Here's a list of 13 lyrics/quotes about love from Taylor Swift's albums.

“Losing him was blue like I’ve never known. Missing him was dark grey all alone. Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met. Loving him was red.”

"Red" from the album "Red." This song perfectly describes every feeling that radiates through your entire being when you love and then lose someone.

“I wish we could go back, and remember what we were fighting for. I wish you knew that, I miss you too much to be mad anymore. I wish you were right here, right now, it’s all good. I wish you would.”

"I Wish You Would" from 1989. Sometimes I wish it was acceptable to just blast Taylor Swift during an argument because I totally would.

“You learn my secrets and you figure out why I’m guarded. You say we’ll never make my parents mistake.”

"Mine" from Speak Now. Let's surpass everyone's expectations.

“My baby’s fly like a jet stream, high above the whole scene, loves me like I’m brand new.” 

"Call It What You Want To" from the Reputation album. Once in a lifetime, there's someone who looks at your scars and calls you strong and brave, instead of damaged.

“My mother accused me of losing my mind, but I swore I was fine.” 

"Dear John" from Speak now. Love makes you do crazy things.

“One night he wakes, strange look on his face. Pauses then says ‘you’re my best friend’. And you knew what it was. He is in love.” 

"You Are In Love" from the 1989 album. Swift gives me chills with this song. Every time you think you're in love, you realize that the last time wasn't even close. True love, happens once or twice, and not for everyone.

“You pull my chair out, and help me in. And you don’t know how nice that is, but I do. And you throw your head back laughing like a little kid. I think it’s strange that you think I’m funny cause, he never did. I’ve been spending the last eight months, thinking all love ever does is break, and burn, and end. But on a Wednesday, in a cafe, I watched it begin again.”

"Begin Again" from the Red album. One of my top five favorite songs. Real love shows you how you should've been treated all along.

“Why would you wanna make the very first scar? Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart?”

"A Perfectly Good Heart" from the first Taylor Swift album. Some people are only here to take. Never to give or share.

“The rain came pouring down, when I was drowning that’s when I cold finally breathe. And by morning, gone was any trace of you, I think I am finally clean.”

'Clean' from 1989. It can take years, even lifetimes, to finally feel free from love.

“There I was again tonight, forcing laughter, faking smiles, same old tired lonely place. Walls of insincerity, shifting eyes and vacancy, vanished when I saw your face. All I can say is it was, enchanting to meet you.”

'Enchanted' from Speak Now album. Love at first sight?

“Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone, I’ll be waiting all that’s left to do is run. You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess, it’s a love story, baby just say yes.”

'Love Story' from Fearless album. This song makes me want to take a chance and escape with a stranger.

“I once was poison ivy, but now I’m your daisy.”

"Don't Blame Me" from Reputation. I'm only better when I'm with you.

“We could get married. Have 10 kids and teach em how to dream.”

"Starlight" from the Red album. Only certain people are worth growing with.
