NEW YEAR, NEW PLAN, NEW ME by F. Amanda Tugade
don’t know about you, but 2011 kicked my ass and then some. A naïve freshman, then I looked for answers at the bottom of every red cup and the soles of my 5-year-old, periwinkle Converse. From failing at relationships to failing tests to epically failing at life, here are twelve steps (and tracks) that I am taking to have a good 2012.
11 “Like a Record Player” --Brendan Kelly, Wasted Potential I will continue to deny that I listen to the bands my boyfriend likes. 12 “Beauty Fades” --Joe McMahon, Wasted Potential …and never admit that I like them, too.
1 “Where is My Mind?” --The Pixies While I attempt to stand on my head and have my feet pointed straight up at the sky, I will keep my mind open to new adventures without hesitation or regrets. 2 “To All My Friends”--Atmosphere I’m a journalism major, and I will always keep my Diane Sawyer dreams in perspective. 3 “Blackbird”--The Beatles For my ma and pops. I won’t forget to go home, promise. 4 “These Old Shoes” --Deer Tick “I will take these old shoes to get to you.” 5 “Doo Wop (That Thing)” –-Lauryn Hill I will not make the same mistake thrice. 6 “Spiderwebs”--No Doubt Avoiding confrontation will only create a spiderweb of problems. I will stop being a pussy, and finally, say what I want, when I want. 7 “Midnight City” --M83 There is no such thing as the right time. The time is now 8 “Dance (Ass)” --Big Sean ft. Nicki Minaj I will dance responsibly to this song and this song only. 9 “100 Resolutions” --The Lawrence Arms I will continue being the best girlfriend I can be to the only guy that’s ever given me the right amount of time of the day. 10 “Feel it All Around” --Washed Out I will continue to deny I am a hipster...because I am not.
