Sometimes you got resolutions, and sometimes you don’t…can’t say that we’re the most resolution oriented group around here this year…
Carie: What are everyone’s thoughts on resolutions for the new year? I hate them and never make them, but think about it for like 1.5 days each December.
Also, I typed “resolutions for the new year” because I never remember if I should capitalize and put an apostrophe in New Years Resolutions and have to google it every single time
There’s an apostrophe.
Veronica: I’m just impressed you care enough to check apostrophe grammar for slack
Carie: I like to stay consistent otherwise I’ll become a person that uses acronyms for everything and that’s the downfall of civilizations
Veronica: lol. aka me?
Carie: Linne, I know you love the OC!
which I appreciate
Veronica: the “OC?”
Linne: the OC?
Veronica: like the tv show?
Carie: of course!
Carie: that’s Linne’s reply when I thank her for everything
Linne: oooh hahahah
i do the “ofc”
right. my bad
Veronica: i thought you were talking about the thrilling tv show of the early aughts
Linne: i thought so too lol
Carie: I honestly have never watched an episode of that show
Linne: i was like i mean i do love me some seth cohen buuuut haha
Sarah: I’m rewatching the OC right now, it’s so good
Veronica: HE WAS THE DREAM
Carie: but, wait, resolutions??
Linne: oh right
Carie: should i watch the OC as my resolution/goal for 2019?
yes, especially b/c you’re in LA now
Mary: i speak in acronyms on a daily basis, so i guess i’m guilty of our downfall
Carie: But that is honestly part of your charm, Mary
Carie: that’s my favorite one!
Veronica: i constantly ask mare for an explanation of what the hell she is saying to me
Carie: I google most of hers
Veronica: i sometimes dont even know if it’s good or bad
Mary: vanessa didn’t even understand me when i would speak to her on slack for the first 6 months that i worked here
Carie: Soooo, no one has resolutions?
Veronica: i do wonder if emojis are screwing with are ability to express emotions
Carie: they are
Veronica: sometimes i can’t figure out what i want to say, but i do know the emoji i want to use
and i search for five mins for it instead of searching my own brain for the word / emotion
Carie: they are a crutch in so many ways…
Veronica: you know what they are doing? people can’t read sarcasm in texts any more
Mary: linne lives for emojis
Mary: so much so that our client asked her to remove them from our social previews
Linne: coooool guys
Emily: this is literally an LOL moment
Veronica: it’s an endearing quality
Linne: [insert eye roll emoji]
Mary: I HATE THAT WE’RE ALL LAUGHING AT OUR SCREENS AND NOT TALKING OUT LOUD
Veronica: we’re including Carie!
Mary: carie i wish you were here so we could talk in person
Carie: me too, mary, me too
Emily: CARIE i have a resolution
Carie: lay it on us
E: i have a few actually
Mary: carie i wish you could’ve just been here to see everyone giggling at their screens and no one speaking out loud
Emily: 1. to go back to pilates because right now i am paying them like $250 a month and i’m just getting fat
it’s the biggest waste of money in my life
Carie: fair and motivating
Veronica: yeah, it’s cliche but that should be my resolution too — sweating more
Emily: 2. i want to start engaging with some kind of addiction support group either via something we do with the studio or alanon or something like that
i know that’s heavy, but it’s the truth! and it’s something i took away from the retreat
Carie: those are good ones!
Veronica: that’s a great take away
i might try to do dry january
but that’s really it
and i also try every year
Carie: oh god
Bogdana: My resolution, or more like a dream (bc I can’t influence it) is to get a Green Card
Oh la la
And go to Pariiiiiii
Carie: Excellent resolution
I really love that no one said lose weight
Linne: i was gonna say my resolution is usually to start actually working out, but let’s be real i just ate mac and cheese and an entire chocolate bar for lunch, so…
Carie: Emily’s not getting fat, so her comment doesn’t count
Linne: ooh but my actual real resolution is to make time to work on my art more!
Bogdana: My other dream is to live in a world where women don’t measure calories they eat every god damn day. Why don’t men do it? ever? (well, maybe 5% do)
Carie: I agree with you, Bogdana
Bogdana: Anyway, moving off the subject. Anyone else has any resolutions?
Emily: no i am! my jeans are all starting to not fit!
Mary: i needto think long and hard
because i never stick to mine
Carie: I like to give myself like a 5 lb. gain for the winter. it’s good for keeping warm
Veronica – do you try to do a dry January alone or with Tyler?
You need some kind of support
Maybe Mary will do it with you!
mary: hell no
Linne: but then i’ll miss all the “over-served” stories
Mary: thats setting myself up for failure
Carie: that’s why I don’t do resolutions, I set the bar real low
and just do it all in moderation
Bogdana: Veronica, you’re traveling to Paris in January! C’mon
Carie: oh yeah, definitely gonna fail
Veronica: oh shit. i forgot about that. next year.
