Thursday: Alternate Resolutions!

Thu Jan 2, 2014, 6:04 PM
Happy New Year, everyone! Now that we've said our goodbyes to 2013, I think everyone is ready for the new year to really get going. So, without further ado, here are your winners and their 2013 memories!

2013, Year of Us by anhvan44

Sailing in Rio by Rssfim

Delighted-In the skies far beyond by 20Tourniquet02

Congratulations! You'll be contacted about your prizes in the next 24 hours! :)

This week, we're creating a new breed of New Years Resolutions. 


Every year we make New Years Resolutions. Sometimes we keep them, but sometimes we forget them by the end of February. Therefore, this year we're going to do something a little different and invent our own one-word resolutions to describe how we'd like to spend 2014!
  • Create a new and original word describing the year you would like to have. It can be a combination of multiple words or it can just sound awesome. 
  • Leave your new word in a comment on this journal, and describe what it means to you!
  • Ten Premium Members who take part will be selected to win 100 Points each! Entries will be judged on creativity and overall impact.
  • All entries must be in Tuesday, January 7, 2014 at 11:59 PM Los Angeles time.
For example, my word is for 2014 is "dulcessful," which includes my desire for this year to be filled with both success and sugar. =P

Happy Thursday, and Happy New Year!

For me, I hope 2014 will turn out to be a veritable improvaganza.

Improvaganza
Definition: Portmanteau of 'improvisation' and 'extravaganza'; combined meanings of both words.
Etymology: Coined by Espionne in early 2014 A.D. after a bit of soul-searching and a striking realization that she could really use some serious switching up, or improvisation, of her typical daily activities and hobbies, in order to find where her true passions lie.

Pessilution: A resolution made in the knowledge that it will probably never come into fruition. This is likely to apply to countless resolutions out there, but for me it's about going running in the mornings.

Happy new year!! And congratulations to the winners!:la:

And to join in the contest, I'd want this year to be--
Victoriucky
Victorious against those who try to let me down, may it be with people trying to make me lower my commission prices, or giving rude critiques, with myself, and show I'm determined and I can stand up to defend and exalt my work.
And Lucky. Because we all need that so accomplish our goals:giggle:

I actually saw this somewhere else on another site and decided my word was "Persevere" because that sums up what I need to do more in one simple word. I need to try to persevere more through school work as well as emotional issues, it's all about perseverance for me and getting through and past things that I need to.

Improvation - Improve + Motivation

Last year, while I did improve a lot, I wasn't very motivated towards both art and life.
So in 2014 I'm looking to improve even more and be more motivated towards everything~! vuv

Positlivity. It's a combination of positivity and live.
I started 2013 out thinking I was going to be positive and it would be a great year, but everything kind of fell down around me and ended up very negative so I just coasted through it and didn't really live the year. This year, however, I'm trying to be more positive about everything. I'm trying to take on a better attitude about everything, and really get involved in life and make the most of it instead of just sitting back and waiting for time to pass.
