It’s a New Year, Seriously

Really, It’s A New Year

Year after year people ask each other about their New Year’s resolutions. Some may say it’s a new beginning; others say a new work out goal, maybe even to travel to another country. I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions.

To me, a new year does mean new adventures and new styles to look forward to. Maybe even some new artists. But I never make a resolution. When I want to change something about myself I just change it. I don’t see the point in waiting for a new year. I look more at the here and now. How I can do something now rather than later. Of course, I have goals but it’s more about what I’m doing now that will help me obtain those goals.

Now I’m not trying to say that New Year’s Resolutions are implausible, because they’re not. There are people out there that actually do follow through with their resolutions all year long. Big props to you guys. I just like to act on my decision as soon as I can.

In 2015, I hope to see more Cali fashion trends reach the DC area. I want to see less conservative Washingtonians. In the summer, women should be wearing shorter shorts. Not so short that your buttocks are showing. But short enough to show some leg. And don’t be scared to show a little mid-drift. I want to see some Coachella vibes in DC when the weather starts to get warmer.

I also hope that guys stop wearing flip-flops. If there is not a beach around then we shouldn’t see your feet. Sandals are cool on guys. But not flip-flops [side note: my editor is clapping]. The only other time that these are acceptable to wear is if you have that sort of surfer-skateboarder look. It’s just awkward, especially when your toes aren’t up to par.

On the music front, I can’t wait to hear from Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Frank Ocean, Big Sean, and Schoolboy Q. If you haven’t heard Kanye and Paul McCartney’s new song “Only One”, then you definitely should. ‘Ye makes references to his mother, Donda West, who passed a few years back, and to his lovely daughter North West. J. Cole also came out with an album, “2014 Forest Hills Drive”, which was amazing. I expect that after this album he will be collaborating on a bunch of albums and singles.

One thing we can all look forward is living better in 2015, than we did in 2014.
