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.

10 TV Shows That Can Replace 'The Office' On Netflix By 2021



Netflix has done it again. Created a mass panic. But this time the reason is not that "Friends" is being taken down or renewed for a giant price.

No, this time it is much worse.

Netflix has said in just TWO short years, it is likely NBC will be taking 'The Office' down. I know, it is unthinkable. What else are we suppose to rewatch a hundred times and quote endlessly? You cannot simply take Michael Scott off of Netflix. The best thing to ever happen was for Netflix to put "The Office", they made it popular again. And you @ me on that. But now they are removing it. I guess we will just have to watch other shows now.

Find other shows on Netflix to watch and to fill the void that NBC is creating for us.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
