Every New Year’s Eve, we write our resolutions. We swear we’ll keep to them. We seldom do. One of the reasons we “cheat” ourselves (so to speak) through the year is because once we’ve broken a resolution, we figure we might as well keep breaking it and start over next New Year’s Eve. Well, people like me at least. Scratch that, the old me was like that. Who is the new me then? And how Does one “become” her? Well, for starters, start now. Decide right now that that’s who you want to be. Write it down, pin it on Pinterest. You could even start a vision board about it. However you do it, think it- be it. The second you doubt yourself and start telling yourself that you might as well wait until next year, that’s where you start making a “cushion” for yourself. A comfort zone if you will. Take this for example: my “10 year anniversary” with my now husband is this year. We started dating 10 years ago this March. Married in 2018. We’ve had our ups and downs throughout the years. Some years were great, some were so incredibly stressful that we have contemplated splitting up. Regardless of that, I decided that not only will this year, 2021, be our year- but we are going to try to start off a new decade of our relationship on a more positive and healthy note as well. It sounds hard- and he thinks its going to be so hard- but if you take a few steps back to look at it, you’ll see that there’s not as much to it as you thought. Just because you can’t reach the top corners of the big picture yet doesn’t mean that it‘s not worth having-you know, the big picture. You have to acknowledge that big picture every now and then to remember the parts you don’t yet have access to yet and remind yourself why you need it.
Binge Worthy Criminal Justice
“So, when do I get my money?” Shawn Spencer asks the police. Why? Because he calls in tips to the station and offers them crime tips for reward money-that is, until he is suspected of being one of the criminals in question. As a result, he resorts to lying to the police- telling them that he is in fact, a psychic. “Psych” is a show surrounding the life of Shawn Spencer and his partner Gus. Gus and Shawn couldn’t be more different, and that’s what makes this show hilarious. Gus is a cautious yet curious, reasonable, level-headed pharmaceutical salesman whereas Shawn is a cunning, ambitious (yet highly impulsive) and ironically unemployed son of a former police officer. The problem with Shawn is that he hasn’t kept a job for more than 6 months and has had about 57 since high school. Shawn and Gus butt heads about nearly everything. Gus, neurotic, is always worried that Shawn is going to blow his cover and show everyone that he is a fraud. Shawn discovers his intel through cognition and stuns all who meet him with his intense visions and accuracy. I have watched this show over and over again, all 8 seasons. The sarcasm, the hilarity, the way Gus overreacts and “screams like a girl” or cries and throws up at the discovery of a dead body or crucial evidence, it makes me laugh every single time.
