To Auld Lang Syne and Full Speed Ahead

And we’ll take a right gude-willie waught, for auld lang syne.

Am I carrying the Scots thing too far? Auld lang syne means times long past. Ever since I got the google, things make a lot more sense.

Let’s talk New Year’s resolutions. After a good sixty seconds thought I jotted down mine. Since I really wanted to share my wicked cool dancing photo, I’m going to share my resolutions to go with it. I’ll be looking just like that btw, as I dance in the new year.

The List (Do you like to make lists? I love to make lists!)
  1. Write.
  2. In the event of an emergency I will be putting the oxygen mask on myself first.
  3. Play. (It’s what the world needs more of, don’t you think?)
  4. Learn a new skill. Like aerial yoga with silks, or breathing fire, or a no hands cartwheel.
  5. Do something that scares me. Funny how any of the above would kind of knock this resolution off the list too, huh?

On New Year’s Eve I like to look back, count my blessings, and move on. Every year is a fresh slate with no mistakes on it (bastardized Anne Shirley quote BAM).

What are you doing for New Years? Are you going out or staying in? Are you all partied and feasted out? Judging by the joggers I see out every morning I think a lot of people are feasted out. And judging by the clothes in my closet I am too. Hello, Spinach Smoothies.

Pretty sure that spinach smoothies will help me hit every one of my resolutions, most especially the breathing fire one, right? 


  1. I'm staying in and not making resolutions. Goodbye 2014!

  2. I'm with Kelsey.

    But if we're talking about being held at gunpoint and being forced to make New Years Resolutions (which seems likely) then I would say that the oxygen mask one is my first choice.

    Second only to forgetting the almond flour brownie recipe that changed my life.
