Things We Slacked / New Year’s Resolutions
4 years ago by
Sometimes you got resolutions, and sometimes you don’t…can’t say that we’re the most resolution oriented group around here this year…
Carie: What are everyone’s thoughts on resolutions for the new year? I hate them and never make them, but think about it for like 1.5 days each December.
Also, I typed “resolutions for the new year” because I never remember if I should capitalize and put an apostrophe in New Years Resolutions and have to google it every single time
There’s an apostrophe.
Veronica: I’m just impressed you care enough to check apostrophe grammar for slack
Carie: I like to stay consistent otherwise I’ll become a person that uses acronyms for everything and that’s the downfall of civilizations
Veronica: lol. aka me?
Carie: Linne, I know you love the OC!
which I appreciate
Veronica: the “OC?”
Linne: the OC?
Veronica: like the tv show?
Carie: of course!
Carie: that’s Linne’s reply when I thank her for everything
Linne: oooh hahahah
i do the “ofc”
right. my bad
Veronica: i thought you were talking about the thrilling tv show of the early aughts
Linne: i thought so too lol
Carie: I honestly have never watched an episode of that show
Linne: i was like i mean i do love me some seth cohen buuuut haha
Sarah: I’m rewatching the OC right now, it’s so good
Veronica: HE WAS THE DREAM
Carie: but, wait, resolutions??
Linne: oh right
Carie: should i watch the OC as my resolution/goal for 2019?
yes, especially b/c you’re in LA now
Mary: i speak in acronyms on a daily basis, so i guess i’m guilty of our downfall
Carie: But that is honestly part of your charm, Mary
Carie: that’s my favorite one!
Veronica: i constantly ask mare for an explanation of what the hell she is saying to me
Carie: I google most of hers
Veronica: i sometimes dont even know if it’s good or bad
Mary: vanessa didn’t even understand me when i would speak to her on slack for the first 6 months that i worked here
Carie: Soooo, no one has resolutions?
Veronica: i do wonder if emojis are screwing with are ability to express emotions
Carie: they are
Veronica: sometimes i can’t figure out what i want to say, but i do know the emoji i want to use
and i search for five mins for it instead of searching my own brain for the word / emotion
Carie: they are a crutch in so many ways…
Veronica: you know what they are doing? people can’t read sarcasm in texts any more
Mary: linne lives for emojis
Mary: so much so that our client asked her to remove them from our social previews
Linne: coooool guys
Emily: this is literally an LOL moment
Veronica: it’s an endearing quality
Linne: [insert eye roll emoji]
Mary: I HATE THAT WE’RE ALL LAUGHING AT OUR SCREENS AND NOT TALKING OUT LOUD
Veronica: we’re including Carie!
Mary: carie i wish you were here so we could talk in person
Carie: me too, mary, me too
Emily: CARIE i have a resolution
Carie: lay it on us
E: i have a few actually
Mary: carie i wish you could’ve just been here to see everyone giggling at their screens and no one speaking out loud
Emily: 1. to go back to pilates because right now i am paying them like $250 a month and i’m just getting fat
it’s the biggest waste of money in my life
Carie: fair and motivating
Veronica: yeah, it’s cliche but that should be my resolution too — sweating more
Emily: 2. i want to start engaging with some kind of addiction support group either via something we do with the studio or alanon or something like that
i know that’s heavy, but it’s the truth! and it’s something i took away from the retreat
Carie: those are good ones!
Veronica: that’s a great take away
i might try to do dry january
but that’s really it
and i also try every year
Carie: oh god
Bogdana: My resolution, or more like a dream (bc I can’t influence it) is to get a Green Card
Oh la la
And go to Pariiiiiii
Carie: Excellent resolution
I really love that no one said lose weight
Linne: i was gonna say my resolution is usually to start actually working out, but let’s be real i just ate mac and cheese and an entire chocolate bar for lunch, so…
Carie: Emily’s not getting fat, so her comment doesn’t count
Linne: ooh but my actual real resolution is to make time to work on my art more!
Bogdana: My other dream is to live in a world where women don’t measure calories they eat every god damn day. Why don’t men do it? ever? (well, maybe 5% do)
Carie: I agree with you, Bogdana
Bogdana: Anyway, moving off the subject. Anyone else has any resolutions?
Emily: no i am! my jeans are all starting to not fit!
Mary: i needto think long and hard
because i never stick to mine
Carie: I like to give myself like a 5 lb. gain for the winter. it’s good for keeping warm
Veronica – do you try to do a dry January alone or with Tyler?
You need some kind of support
Maybe Mary will do it with you!
mary: hell no
Linne: but then i’ll miss all the “over-served” stories
Mary: thats setting myself up for failure
Carie: that’s why I don’t do resolutions, I set the bar real low
and just do it all in moderation
Bogdana: Veronica, you’re traveling to Paris in January! C’mon
Carie: oh yeah, definitely gonna fail
Veronica: oh shit. i forgot about that. next year.
I love the illustration. Is it by Garance?
I usually love your content but this post just seemed like filler. No real substance here.
Hey Jessica! Sorry to hear you thought that. I like to sprinkle in a few slack conversations every few months so people can get a sense of the team behind the Atelier and the ridiculous slack conversations we tend to have. Stay tuned for more substance! x Veronica
I think this is hilarious! It reminds me of my Whatsapp chats with my best girlfriends. Thank you for showing us who you are behind Atelier Dore brand.
Happy New Year! ???
