New Year’s Resolution: Letter Writing Project

So, normally, I am not one for New Year’s Resolutions. In fact, my feelings about them have already been summed up in musical form by Rhett and Link:

However, this year, I have been inspired! After reading about a bunch of different people who wrote a letter to a different person every day for a year, I have decided to rekindle my love affair with the USPS. Yeah, we’ve flirted pretty regularly for the past twenty years, and a few times I thought it was going to turn into a more serious thing. Then I hooked up with the Royal Mail while in Scotland and it stopped speaking to me for awhile, but I am making a resolution that this year will be different. I am going to win back USPS the only way I can think of: by writing a letter to a different person every day for a month in January.

I know, it’s not as cool as for a whole year, but I want to start off slow. Can’t rush these things; wouldn’t want the USPS to feel pressured into entering into some sort of commitment. So I’m just going for a month. This still means that I will need 31 separate people to send letters to, which is less than my number of facebook friends, but more than the number of entries in my address book.

So, if you would like to be the recipient of an awesome letter sometime in January, email/facebook message me your address! Or maybe I already have it and you will receive a letter WHETHER YOU WANT TO OR NOT! Ha ha. Fools.

    Here’s Hoping I make the cut! If you need my address, just let me know. Awesome Christmas letter by the way.

    I’m gonna totally hold out until a month when you’re really sick of it and want to rant about what a crazy idea it was in an ironically in-letter fashion and then say something like do you want to hear about today’s trip to Food Lion, which would naturally be followed by something totally hilarious and spontaneous and amazing.

    P.S. That is a really cool resolution.
