New year, new me, or something. Right? Blerg. I generally suck at new year’s resolutions because I always fail and then feel badly about myself, so this year I’m all about aiming low. This year, I’m going to dress like a grown up. Well, grown up, ish. More

There are a lot of New Year’s Eve traditions that I love (champagne, sequined dresses, making a resolution to eat fewer cookies which I break at 1 AM once dessert is served) and some that I don’t (those stupid horns, … More
Every year, we see all these movies and television specials and ad campaigns promoting this idea of a perfect New Year’s Eve where your friends all get along, you find a nice person to make out with, nobody gets too drunk, and confetti falls in slow motion.
It’s a goddamn lie. More
At the risk of sounding sincere, I want to tell you what writing this column has meant to me this year. More
The year of our lord two thousand and thirteen is about to end and when we ring in two thousand and fourteen, the people of the Gregorian calendar will resolve to change themselves to mutate into better beings. They are engaging in a ritual we call â€śNew Yearâ€™s Resolutions.â€ť Some will succeed, but most will fail, er, well maybe not fail but totally forget they resolved to do anything and go back to their old ways.

I had about a week and a half for each of the remaining resolutions before the clock would strike midnight on New Years Eve and I would have again failed to become the best version of myself.
The week that followed found me one cold pressed green drink away from a full blown mental break down on the elliptical, Shrugging Toward Bethlehem by Joan Didion teetering on the handlebars. More

NYE is that one night a year where you get to wear sequins, get wasted and make out with a random ginger dude on the rooftop of an apartment building that you only kind of know one resident from. If you’re me, then that random ginger dude will turn out to be a complete psychopath who refuses to leave you alone the rest of the evening, presses your head against a cab window, calls your friends assholes because they’re wearing suits, and tries to pay a stranger to beat up one of the aforementioned amigos.
TL;DR — NYE can go so, so very wrong, particularly if you are a poor judge of character. More

We measure our current selves against the ones we remember from this time last year with the hopes that we have become smarter, cooler, more attractive, more successful versions of ourselves. Usually during this reflection I find that my hair looks a little better and maybe I feel a littler wiser but often times there never seems to be any really tangible, easily articulable evidence of growthâ€¦ until this year.

New Years happened. It was stupid. Like it is, every year. Here at The Gloss, we are professional drinkers and so regard New Years as an acceptable excuse to get drunk at best (but really, to stay in and order takeout). Here, editors Jennifer Wright and Ashley Cardiff discuss their ambivalence about the practice of resolutions, what awful children they were and Michael Crichton.
Also. Hi, Simon Rich! More
I spent all week reading bad New Year’s resolutions on Facebook that bare a striking resemblance to last year’s fruitless causes. People of the internet, I beg you! Stop setting yourself up for failure. More
I mean, Snooki‘s resolutions themselves aren’t that strange. It’s the order in which they occur that is strange. More
