Lisa’s Look Back at 2015!
Happy Newest of Years!
So, 2015 was pretty great. One might even say bitchin’. I got a dog named Riley who is sleeping on my feet and currently smells a little bit like old milk, which is weird, Kevin turned…3? 4? (who knows), and I didn’t get any diseases. That I know of. I guess the year isn’t technically over yet and things could still go bad.
In today’s video, I run down all the neat stuff that happened to me this year – not so much the important stuff, like, ‘time with a family that loves me’ and ‘a roof over my head’ but more along the lines of I started playing Rock Band on Expert. Which I would argue is more impressive in some cultures.
The one thing I didn’t talk about is New Year’s Resolutions. It’s a topic that you absolutely cannot approach in any way without everyone hating you. If you say, “YEAH! I’m gonna do a thing starting on the 1st, like lose weight and stop smoking weed in Chuck E. Cheese bathrooms!” then people will be like “You’re an IDIOT and resolutions are STUPID and you’ll NEVER keep them” and blah blah blah, super negative. Then there’s the subtly negative people who try to be inspiring, but instead come across as pompous jackholes. “Maybe instead of focusing on a New Years resolution, you should just focus on making good life decisions at all times.” Stfu. Seriously. Stop.
Look at that, even I’m hating on all of the hate of New Year’s Resolutions. I’ve added a whole new layer. I’ve removed myself from the Sarlacc stomach of hate to hate on it from above in my flying Sail Barge. That’s a Star Wars joke. I hear it’s topical.
So maybe we just wipe the slate clean and agree that everything in the whole world is stupid then proceed doing what we want. I want to make a New Year’s Resolution, probably for the first time, and you’ll never even guess what it is: It’s to HATE ON MOVIES LESS. Yeah. I’m that girl who will walk out of a movie and immediately rattle off the ten most unbelievable/ridiculous/pointless/idiotic/unnecessary parts of the film until your childlike smile fades into a disgruntled grimace. No. No more. I want to be able to walk out of a movie, shrug my shoulders, and say “Meh, a few plotholes sure, some cheesy dialogue, yeah, but that was a neat idea that someone came up with and a lot of people put time and effort into making it, so bravo.” Unless it’s an Alvin and the Chipmunks movie in which case it needs to go away IMMEDIATELY.
I just want to enjoy things more: tv, video games, movies, books. Being picky has never gotten me anywhere. I’ll take things at face value from now on, and if I didn’t like it, big friggin’ deal. Other people do, and good for them.
But enough talk! Here’s today’s video.
Super duper happy new year and let’s do great things this year!
