We'll Be Jolly Friends, Forevermore

I feel like this is where I should type up a long and detailed list of all these fabulous things I'm going to do for New Years. Like losing weight or making new friends or traveling to the ends of the earth or trying to be a better person. You know, all the typical cliche ramblings of the past few generations.



Instead I'm going to make a promise to myself, here and now, to just... be me. It's so easy to find yourself snipping away at the little parts of ourselves that others say are unattractive or different, but it's those imperfect edges that make this giant puzzle of a world so much more interesting.

So, here's to be myself and enjoying the coming year. To laughing until I cry and spending every moment possible with those who inspire, push, and encourage me. To loving so much it hurts. To riding around town with the windows down and singing at the top of my lungs. To changing my hairstyle as many times as I want. To enjoying my own sense of style.



I challenge everyone to be themselves in the coming year. No matter who people tell you to be, remember that life isn't about fitting in-- it's about standing out.
