New Year, Same Trash
New Year, Same Trash: Resolutions I Absolutely Did Not Keep | Samantha Irby
18 posts | 12 read | 17 to read
Comedian, blogger and essayist Samantha Irby is not going to be a better person this year than she was last. Nope. With a small group of woo-woo others, Irby sets seventy micro-resolutions, and thenwith the rest of usshe fails at almost every single one of them. Thoughtful, witty, poignantthe failed intentions in New Year Same Trash will make you laugh and cry. Because you know youve been there. You cant wake up in time to go to brunch. Swimming three times a week? Who are you kidding. Youre not going to shower every day or pack your lunch every day. Youre definitely not going to choose a smart movie over mindless entertainment, because youre tired. Youre lazy. And, no, youre never going to be a positive thinker. I didnt do this. Im gonna. Maybe. Dont worry. Its okay. Theres always next year. Instantly recognizable to anyone whos ever failed to make goals and stick with them, New Year Same Trash will bring hilarious relief. A Vintage Shorts Original. An ebook short.

Another hilarious essay by Irby and completely relatable to me and my 2023 refusal to give a f*ck about resolutions or a “Word of the Year.”

Samantha Irby is always a relatable read for me, and one that's guaranteed to make me laugh. This is only about 25 pages long (when I read it on my phone), and is basically a list of resolutions and why she didn't complete them. Not life-changing, but I enjoyed it

I guess I'm too cynical to be a #NewYearNewYou person; I vibe much more with Sam Irby's take. That said, mad respect for folks who take this time of year to set goals and make resolutions! You are focused and motivated and totally #admirable! #InspiredNewYear #JumpIntoJanuary

According to her DNA test, IRBY is 100% that B!TCH! 😎 this was a quick read and a lot of fun. I‘m still astounded by her ability to put regular life struggles into words and make them a) outrageously hilarious and B) so relatable that you feel such a comfort in knowing other people do this stuff too! My hat is OFF to her. She is among my fave authors and I‘m waiting with bated breath for the next installment in spring 2020!! 😃
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 1/2

Loved this very short book (99 cents on Kindle) that was recently recommended by a friend when we were talking about new year‘s resolutions. If yo have already given up on this year‘s resolutions or don‘t like making them, this hilarious book is worth a quick read.

AlaMich I love Irby and didn‘t know about this! Thanks! 4y
JoScho I am with @AlaMich I adore Irby and don‘t know about this. Going to grab it now. Thanks for sharing! 4y

Already feeling a little daunted by the new year and I needed a pick-me up. I don‘t think author has ever made me laugh so hard. I crack up at almost every page. Her humor just works for me.

Hoping to post more regularly in 2018!

RadicalReader @HollyB3 makes me think of the experience some people have in school when people have their cliques and then don‘t dare let in others simply because they don‘t fit in. They‘re missing out on knowing incredible people and making marvelous friendships 5y
