Resolutions, So Maybe 2012 Won’t be as Disorganized as Every Other Year.

Well, New Year’s is fast approaching and I honestly didn’t realize it until today. I’m terrible with dates and times and whatnot, so it’s to be expected, but still. Since i’ve been terrible at updating this thing, i’m making this post to make my blog a bit more active and maybe sort out a few thoughts. I still haven’t really figured what my New Year’s Resolutions are, so i’m going to do that right now. You know, if my brain ever starts working.

1. Get better at the ukulele and finally do a two-hour set at the coffee shop. I really want to get good at the ukulele, so I need to start practicing more. Everyday, if I can. Also, there is a coffee shop downtown that I like to perform at on Open Mic Night, but i’ve never done a two-hour set because I chicken out, even though they have asked me a few times. But I will do it this year! Really.

2. Save at least $10 a month. I’m really truly terrible at saving money. Even though I need money for a trip to Europe and college. But darn me, I can’t help it when I see a freakin pair of shoes. But this year, I will save ten dollars a month, and I am NOT allowed to spend any of it. It is for COLLEGE. Get that through your head, Savannah.

3. Get all A’s. I know that is the clichéd resolution, but I will be getting all A’s so I can get into Tech. I have to start thinking about my future unfortunately.

4. Drink only clear liquid. I know this one is completely ridiculous. But it limits me to water and sprite. Which means I will be healthier and my teeth shant get stained with coffee and coke and whatnot. I may allow myself one colored drink a month though. Because Starbucks is cruel.

5. Try writing again. I’ve pretty much given up on writing. But I want to so badly. So i’m going to try again, and maybe i’ll like my work. I’m reading this book “Letters to a Young Poet” by Rainer Maria Rilke. It’s really good, and I think it’ll help me write. Combining that with the movie “Midnight in Paris”, and I am completely ready to start writing again. I highly suggest you read/watch both of those. Both very good.

I can’t really think of anything else honestly…. clean and whatnot. Uhh…. Yeah, that’s about it. I love fresh starts, but I don’t know. I’m not so sure about 2012. I have a weird feeling about it. Not like an “I’m gonna die.” feeling. More like i’m not gonna have a good year. But we’ll see. This year will bring the start of my Senior year and my 18th birthday, so it’s gotta be good. I’m just a pessimist.

p.s.

6. Stop being a pessimist.

Why Zooey Deschanel Is Better Than Your Average Electronic Reader

I have not blogged in a while, because I was recently banned from usage of the laptop. It’s quite upsetting, because now I must use my iPod, and if I attempt to post a picture with my post, wordpress crashes. I found this out the hard way approximately two minutes ago when I lost an entire blog post when I attempted the simple task of including a picture with my words. Yet another reason why I abhor apple products. Anyways, currently I am watching Elf, which is quite magnificent considering when I was flipping channels, I was craving a Zooey Deschanel movie. If you don’t know who Zooey Deschanel is, obviously you are an extremely deprived human being. If you haven’t noticed, she is my role model/ hero/ favourite person ever. Well, more or less. I’m not a psycho fangirl or anything, but she is pretty awesome. Ugh. A nook commercial just interrupted my movie time. I really despise nooks. Sure they may be helpful or whatever, but I refuse to get one. Not everything needs to be electronic in my opinion, and nothing beats a good, paper filled, non-electronic book. I feel terrible for libraries. And if all anyone ever buys are electronic books, bookstores will start to close, and those are some of my favourite places to hang out! Zooey Deschanel is so much better than a nook. Here are some reasons why:

1. Zooey Deschanel has the voice of an indie-angel. Nooks do not.

2. Zooey Deschanel has been in some of the best movies ever made. (ex. (500) Days of Summer, Elf, Yes Man) Nooks are only in really lame commercials.

3. Zooey Deschanel has amazing hair that is always perfect. I’m attempting to make my hair that amazing, but it’s pretty difficult. Nooks don’t have hair.

4. Zooey Deschanel can play ukulele and is in a band with M. Ward, who is also on a level of awesome most people will never reach. Nooks will also never reach this level.

5. Zooey Deschanel’s wardrobe is probably the greatest collection of clothing any human being will ever own. You can dress up a nook, but they don’t have the attitude to pull off a dress like Zooey can.

Those are just a few of the many reasons Zooey Deschanel is better than your average electronic reader. My friend and I are revamping our style, and Zooey Deschanel is my inspiration. She’s going for a more “bombshell” look, which I could probably never pull off, but the Deschanel look works for me. I suppose it helps that I have a ukulele. Now if you’ll excuse me, I am going to watch Elf. I’ll make a style post later.
