I never really think the new year starts when January first comes around.
In fact I’m not really into New Years Resolutions in the typical sense.
I like to start them on my birthday because I feel that is the best time when I can set my goals and just see where I am the next year.
And then New Year’s is much less pressure… And it is just for wearing weird eyeglasses and drinking…. just like the Lord intended!
So let’s recap some of the things.
Things that I learned at 27:
♥ That people from high school forget most things about you in 10 years and have created stories that are practically legends. Someone told me they remember me being banned from several Los Angeles hot spots and also having VIP parties at school. Which is totally untrue because I don’t believe in exclusivity– the parties were never exclusive.
♥Being really cheerful can get people to be really excited to see you. This weekend I went to a store I visit quite often and the workers sang me happy birthday.
♥Friends are really amazing. Thank your friends for being amazing if you read this. My friends were so sweet this weekend, but they are wonderful all the time so *hair flip* nothing is new about that.
♥For fabulous traveling hair wear a wig! I haven’t done it but it’s a great idea (thanks Cakes!):
♥Make sure the parking lot you park your car in is not locked at a certain time at night… and if so pray that the person you are with is a welder.
♥If something seems to good to be true… it probably is.
♥Only you can
prevent forest fires make yourself happy. If you are depending on other people for this… you are going to have a bad time.
♥Ben Affleck may be an okay Batman, we should give him a chance.
♥Never write people notes on their car when you have drank too much.
♥Don’t waste your time with people who make you unhappy… instead spend time with the people who make you smile.
♥Always do your best even if you aren’t going to be noticed for it.
♥“Fenestration” means having windows… but it’s a horrid sounding word.
♥Bellydancing is probably the most fun I think I have had in a really long time, and it’s the best way to get rid of the stress of having to learn words like “fenestration.”
♥Also my coworkers think bellydancing is stripping… it is actually super not.
Things I will do next year:
♥I’m going to buy that ukulele in Hawaii this year, and by this time next year I will be serenading people with it!
♥ I am going to take my Licensing tests… I already have a date set. This time it’s happening
♥I’m going to learn how to do my hair… I mean having messy bed hair is in now, but eventually I’m not always going to be able to get away with my charming hippy look. And some events need more than 1940s hot roller hair.
♥I will just keep on keeping on being comfortable with myself. It’s really just an amazing thing to be comfy and not so serious to think you can’t make fun of yourself.
♥I will lessen my gossiping. I heard some people gossiping a few weeks ago like serious, and all I could think is “I’m too old for this.”
♥I’m also going to travel more next year… I haven’t been anywhere in so long I feel actual wanderlust. BTW that means you Washington State ;)
Cheers to 28 and the next 365 days!
And thanks to everyone who comes here to see the doodles, and read my weird words… You are truly:

Lauren, I adore you! Happy Birthday New Year of You Celebration!
Thanks Miss Tuesday!
I adore you too, you are as fabulous as that sassy llama in my post.
Have a great November to November too!
“I will just keep on keeping on being comfortable with myself.” You should! I’d hate for you to be the only person who didn’t know how badass you are.
Oh Jen, you are the best.
I need to find more Jen’s out there in the world and start a fun girl union!
