Broken Resolutions

Send us your broken resolutions for this month's Of Recent Note.

It's that time of year again. The time of year when you get to feel like a failure because you did not stick to your pre-appointed resolution. Perhaps because you drunkenly blurted it out at 12:03 a.m., right before lighting another cigarette. Perhaps because it's the same lame resolution you make every year. Perhaps because you are railing against the man and resolutions are made to be broken, kid! Living on the edge! This month's Of Recent Note theme is: Broken Resolutions As always, we invite you to take part. Send some words to by Tuesday, Jan. 20, at 10 p.m. Eastern. One write-up per broken resolution, please, but feel free to submit as many as you can bear. So did you forget and add refined sugar to your coffee? Did you promise not to make fun of your sister's boyfriend only to discover that he wears sunglasses indoors? Did you join a gym and then not even go during the two-week free-trial period? Don't worry: Those aren't failures; they're Of Recent Note fairy dust.
