I've got a guest post visiting today for the New Year.
I read her book, Relatively Famous, a couple months ago and loved it. Since this post is about her ramblings I will cease mine and without further ado, here is what Jessica Park has to say:
A New Year, A New Set of Ramblings
It’s a new year. Ugh. All this pressure to turn ourselves into better people via lofty resolutions? Yeah, I don’t think so. That sounds like too much work. Instead of “resolutions,” I prefer to go with “absolutions.” I will absolve myself of guilt for looking forward to so many less-than-honorable upcoming events of 2011. Like the fact the Britney Spears has a new album coming out. Seriously, I’m practically peeing with excitement. Although this is not nearly as exciting as the time that she shaved her head, because that was ridiculously entertaining. I mean, in a sad, mentally unstable, scary way. But nonetheless… it was awesome. I still dream about it… the way her eyes bugged out of her head as she wielded the electric razor, flashing her new tattoo all over the place… Bliss! Oh, so maybe there will be an equally thrilling celebrity scandal this year! Maybe Khloe Kardashian will shave her head next. Or beat up Kim and Kourtney. Or start spelling her name with a “C” the way it should be because she has finally had enough. She’d have a spectacular breakdown, yes? So I absolve myself of any delight that I might take in any celebrity firestorm.
“American Idol” is starting soon. I’m gonna watch. I know, I know. It’s a tragedy, but I don’t care. It’s the only reality show that I can’t quit. Jennifer Lopez is so hideously annoying, and her singing makes my ears bleed, but both of these factors mean that I will not be able to tear myself away from this disaster. (Side note: Was “Jenny From the Block” not the most annoying, self-serving song ever? “Hi, I make millions per year for being an idiot, but I can tie a rag on my head, throw on some big ol’ hoop earrings, and pretend that I’m just a gal off the streets!” Barf.) And Steven Tyler is… Well, look, he’s Steven f’ing Tyler. I just have to see how he ended up on this show. So, there. I will not feel badly about myself for cranking up the volume while watching AI.
Other guilt-inducing behaviors that I will absolve myself of:

Thanks Jessica!!! I hope you all enjoyed Jessica's post, I know I did. :)
I'm not a big resolution fan either, I figure it's just a way to set yourself up for failure, or at least some guilt if you don't do it. How about you, what do you think about New Years and Resolutions? And what are your thoughts about Jessica's post? I'm sure she'd love to hear them. :)
