This month’s study break posts are simply lists of twelve New Year’s goals – one for each month of the year.
I’ve heard that stuff like cursive and paperback books are dying thanks to technology, but I am full on Luddite when it comes to the written word. If you do choose this as your New Year’s Resolution, do feel free to amend my list for each month’s mail to something that will give you a less spastic reputation.
- Thank you notes. Classic.
- Anything with calligraphy.
- An essay of your day – or your day as you wish it had been. Handwritten necessary; fancy stationary optional.
- A poem of the quality to earn you some sort of poetic laureate. Or, you know, a few lines of doggerel your recipient will find amusing.
- A post-it note or anything, really, etched out in barely legible chicken scratch.
- A list of your day’s grievances. Select your audience wisely.
- A birthday card, or for a holiday or other celebration.
- A congratulations. Passive aggressives don’t count.
- A postcard with your Insta/SnapChat story scribbled out in pen and mailed to all your followers instead.
- Something written in code or with the alphabet of a dead language.
- An uplifting quote written in invisible ink (there’s a right and a wrong way of doing this).
