So 2015 is here. Of course there is a lot of “New Year, New You” propaganda/advertising going on right now. But that makes it sound like the you there is now really stinks. Which I highly doubt if you’re a reader of LABG… clearly you want to do something awesome in this world. So instead of this “new year, new us” shenanigans, I’m calling it New Year, Continued Awesomeness… okay it doesn’t quite have the same ring to it but such is life. In this journey of awesomeness (LABG’s own Dixie Laite has a t-shirt that says “Wake up. Kick ass. Repeat”…. amen sista!), herein are my goals and resolutions for tomorrow and the following 364 days:

  • snail mail letterWrite my family one old fashioned handwritten letter per month. Who doesn’t love opening the mailbox and seeing a handwritten note to them?!
  • Similarly, show the people I love that I love them.
  • Start watercoloring. For real. Even if it’s awful. I gotta get through the awful stuff to get to the awesome stuff. No more of this “I’m going to keep reading books on watercoloring… and start tomorrow.” Seriously, self. As badass artist Chuck Close says…“The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody … Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work.” Thanks Mr. Close.
  • Wear sunscreen! On my hands and face and neck. Every. Flippin. Day.
    This Coppertone Sheerly Clear gets me excited, I cannot lie.

  • Create and sell an original product.
  • Eat vegetables. Every day. Preferably in two meals but don’t beat myself up if it’s just one. That’ll be an improvement. Start small, self.
  • Take daytrips to three of the Northeastern houses you have to see before you die (according to Traditional Home!) with the people I love. The Castle Hill house in Ipswich, Massachusetts? I die.

  • Throw a sleepover with my girlfriends before we graduate NYU in May : )
  • Take at least one photo a day and make a compilation at the end of the year.
    • Use my crockpot and stop being scared of it (why am I freaked? I have no idea. But it’s a kitchen appliance I have zero experience with and that scares the crap out of me… what if what I make is gross?!). Time to actually start cooking the crockpot recipes I’ve pinned.
  • Throw a kick-ass 30th birthday for my big sister.
  • Watch the Audrey Hepburn classics that I haven’t: Roman Holiday, Sabrina, and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
  • Wake up and smile.

And with that… Happy 2015, friends!

 

forever fanning your flames of fabulousness,

xo, Lucy

Lucy Ross | Editor-in-Chief

I went to NYU for Film & TV and had the entrepreneur’s spirit since being a tot when I contracted chores out to my older sister for a profit (ha!). I run Hello Lucy Design (a web management and design biz) full time as well as Editorial Direction for LikeABossGirls.com. As a full-of-energy go-getter, my motto is “Why the heck not?”. I'm a mid-western girl who has worked for the BBC in London, Nickelodeon in NYC, and Jazz Aspen Snowmass in Colorado. One of my proudest accomplishments was serving as Co-Director for three consecutive years for the Fusion Film Festival of NYU, celebrating women in film, TV, and new media.
