A No-Pressure Way to Make New Year’s Resolutions

Are you making any New Year’s resolutions? I used to write mine down on a post-it note that I’d carry around with me in my wallet. But as I’ve gotten older, I realized: who am I kidding? New Year’s resolutions never last for long. So instead of writing it down somewhere semi-permanent, why not write it where it’ll last for exactly as long as I resolve to stick to it? Like on a cookie! Cookies don’t set unrealistic expectations, and they don’t make you feel bad when you forget about your resolution by the second week of January. Plus, they’re delicious.

My resolution this year is to sleep more (and eat more fiber—but that wouldn’t fit on a cookie) (also, are these really my resolutions?! I hope 80-year old me isn’t terribly disappointed I didn’t have bigger plans when she looks back on this post)).

In more exciting news, my sister Sophie’s resolution is to make it rain! (aka getting a sweet job after graduation this spring—woohoo!)

Whatever you’re resolving, I hope you have a happy and safe holiday! See you back here in 2015. 🙂
