The New Year. She is upon us.
Twenty fourteen, we meet you with glasses raised, and shoulders squared. Resolved:
Eat more snacks.
You want to have 15 meals a day, but still support your weight on your own feeble ankles? Snacks! You want to consume something that has a jingle you can hum while you eat it? Snacks! You want food that can be lifted to your mouth using only your tongue? Snacks!
This year, I shall eat tiny things by the thousands using only my fingers. Fun size, 2014.
Make cool stuff.
A little while ago, this thing didn’t exist, but then you made it. So now it does. Because you are a sorcerer, and triumph is your currency.
This year, I will start dozens of things, and then I will finish them. Projects, 2014.

Man. Making out, right? Someone should tell the youth. Kissy face, 2014.
Dress real cute.
Sometimes you’re having a crap day. You wake up feeling akimbo, and you spill something, right before you break something, and over breakfast you ponder whether you are an imposter in your own life. But then! You put on a tweed skirt, and you are quite careful with your lipstick, and you lace up some charming ankle boots, tie the bows just so, and everything is a little easier.
Cute clothes make me feel cozy, and tidy, and fit for bookstore browsing. Dress for the job you want. Girl armor, 2014.
That’s how my year is shaping up. Do you have any fun resolutions? Tell.
