Gay New Year’s Resolutions

1. GO TO THE GYM BECAUSE YOU WANT TO

Image

The gym has to be fun. Not a strict regimine like most meat heads will tell you. Learn some basic lifts/exercises. Put on a great playlist. Go and have fun. Don’t sit and write in a little journal. Just DO. Don’t aim to look like those annoying Instagram twinks in their pics, who post things like “hahaha I eat ALL the time and can’t gain a POUND”.

2. GET OFF YOUR MEDS

Image

85% of Mental Illnesses are made up. I believe, a mental illness is only there because you don’t fit in the mold of the way our 9-5 world operates. Live your life the way that makes YOU happy. Yes you’ll be unhappy at times. That makes the happiness that much better. Think about it…did Cavemen have ADHD? I don’t think so. These drugs are doing more harm then good.

3. GIVE AWAY YOUR CLOTHES

Image

That’s right I said it. if you don’t remember the last time you wore it. Get rid of it. I promise corduroys are not coming back anytime soon.

4. STOP BUYING (so many) CLOTHES

Image

You don’t need 20 pairs of jeans. We think people remember what we wore last weekend much less two nights ago. I promise you they don’t. Nor do they care. I’ll bet you anything you can’t go into your roommate’s room and find the pants he wore yesterday.

5. READ MORE

Image

No not Facebook. No not Buzzfeed. Shut off your laptop, turn off your TV. Buy a Kindle (they’re cheap) and start reading. I promise you’ll get hooked.

6. SHUT YOUR PHONE OFF.

Image

When out with friends if you can’t talk to them without looking at your phone every two seconds. Get new friends or get new social skills.

7. DISCONNECT FOR TWO WEEKS:

Don’t go on Facebook. Don’t go out. No contact. The friends that text you and ask “how are you?”- keep them for life.

8. STOP VENTING ON FACEBOOK (or anywhere else for that matter):

Image

It’s not the place. And I promise you no one cares and many think you’re a whiny bitch.

9. ACCEPT MORE OPINIONS

There’s a difference between “I don’t like Lady Gaga” and “I think Lady Gaga sucks”. Lets try having conversations NOT wars.

10. STOP TRYING TO MAKE PEOPLE LIKE YOU

You are you. Will always be you, and can’t change that. Let it happen organically. If they don’t like you, you can’t change that. Some of my best friends are people that originally hated me.

  1. I did all of these the week after NYE. Suffice to say, I’m now back on my meds, fully clothed, and knuckle deep in apology letters.

    Best. Week. Ever.

  2. I belive Senator Creigh Deeds would disagree number 2. While you battle stereotype’s for gays, you are promoting a biased unresearched view on mental health. Saying 85% on mental illness is made up is like asking someone why they choose to be gay. It’s offensive.

    No one should stop taking any medication without consulting a doctor.

  3. I think I’ll stop taking my meds when the diabetics and cancer patients stop taking theirs. Mental illness is a real illness even though you can’t see it.
