New Years Resolution? How About What We DON’T WANT TO DO/REPEAT in the New Year? Post yours!

Lose weight. Get the courage to ask for a higher wage from your boss. Get a new job. Write more. Spend more time with family. Learn to cook. Take an art class.


How about we say, fuck that! And focus, instead, on what we don’t want to see ourselves doing in the New Year.


Here is the beginning of my Anti-Typical New Years Resolutions.

  1. I don’t want to be perpetually sad.
  2. I don’t want to be held back by my mother who hates tattoos… gonna get some of those inspirational ones.
  3. I don’t want to find myself in another abusive relationship.
  4. I don’t want to keep relying on modern medicine. Fuck narcotics.
  5. I don’t want to be realistic. GO BIG OR GO HOME. DREAM OR DIE.
  6. I don’t want to be so influenced by my past that I contemplate or perform self-harm as a coping mechanism over and over again.
  7. I don’t want to keep thinking about the men who have hurt me and thinking I deserved it.
  8. I don’t want to be locked by my past which prevents me from moving forward.
  9. I don’t want my illness and my pain to continuously define me, even though they are so part of my identity.
  10. I don’t want to feel guilty about saying NO to a man I’m not attracted to, either emotionally, physically, spiritually, or sexually, due to desperation and thinking that I’m not worth more than what he has to offer.
  11. I don’t want to say, “I love you,” out of guilt or pressure.

  1. I don’t want to he held back by my parents.

    I don’t want to stop stopping my self.

    You can accomplish all you wish to set out to. I believe in you.



  2. Those are fine anti New Year resolutions, Drem. I tried to think of some for me and drew a complete blank which is a cop out as far as I’m concerned. I know I have a good imagination, so what gives? Ah, my old friend Reluctance. You wily old devil you!

    1. Well I’m going to sit here and wait for at least 1 good one. I’m not giving up.

      I also realized that saying to a potential boyfriend “why don’t you check out my blog?” is probably a deal breaker because it appears I’m chronically depressed. Which, even if the case may be that I am, is a sign to them to keep on walking.

    1. Why hello “JR”. I am Drem. Though that is not my real name. Shh. It’s a pen name. I have to admit something. I looked at your twitter. I don’t know how to twitter. But I clicked it birdie. You look so young!
      And I mean, I don’t know. I don’t even know what abs looks like. I mean, real ones. I should go use Google Images right now. One moment.


      1. Hey! Call me James, haha. Ignore that photo, it’s from 2009 when I was 17/18. I look quite different now – at 24. I still look young, so I’m told. I look similar though, just have longer hair and sometimes lots of stubble, sometimes not. Come on, reveal your first name, meet me halfway?

        Twitter is so so. I use it as a sharing platform for my posts.
