Trying to Write the Correct Date

 

I will spend the next three weeks trying not to write 2018 on any of my dated papers. The first week will go well: It’s the New Year! Happy New Year! Welcome to 2019, a time to become the new you, to exercise, give up chocolate, drink less, and lose twenty pounds. Also, read a book a week instead of Twittering away your mental time, preferably the classics. Be honest. Did you really read Moby Dick in college? And there are always ways to improve your prospects, network more, polish the resume, take another programming class because that’s where the money lies.

Oh, chocolate. Where did I hide the chocolate?

Within a few weeks, the gym membership commercials rankle and that glass of wine calls out after a day that became a hot mess. One of my friends already described a big-ass bolt that punctured a tire and redirected her entire day. The new year gets real real quickly.

So my advice is to forget making resolutions. Focus on getting through January without mis-dating your cover letter with a sloppy 2018. Or February, for that matter. Now that’s a useful New Year’s resolution, don’t you think?

Thank you for listening, jules

My crabby blog exposes what's up in the angry side of my brain. There's a lot going on there, folks. The Trump administration won't leave us alone to live our lives in relative peace. We have to fight for what we know is right. We have to. If we don't, then they win and ... damn.
