This resolution is like getting to the end of a world in Super Mario Bros…but this time, the princess is NOT in another damn castle. The princess is right in front of you. You just need to do one final task. And it's fun, so don't even think about skipping it.
Cassette tapes might be dead, but that doesn’t mean mixtapes have to be buried. Remember that excitement you felt when your BFF or your foxy crush handed you a scribble-y new mixtape? Or the rush you felt when you made one for someone else? We spent hours on these things. We obsessively created the perfect flow, the perfect mood, the perfect secret message. Cutting out the radio commercials was half the battle!
Do it again. Send some love, music-style. Create mixtapes for all your favorite weirdos. Use iTunes, Spotify, whatever, but do it with the vigor of a 1992 version of yourself. (Plus/minus a few years depending on your age.) If you can hand deliver your mixtape and snap a pic to share with me, even better.
Since this is the last month, there is a BONUS resolution. And yes, it's groan-worthy. Any guesses?
Kara-freaking-oke. Find your inner Shelly. Choose a song that reminds you of the old days. The awesome days. Be spastic, be ridiculous. If you send me a video of your performance to share on Facebook, I'll send you a signed copy of the book for FREE. Your performance must be NEW. No recycling old footage. For inspiration, I shall share one of my most embarrassing, yet rewarding moments of all time with you.
