Chantelle took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say, she found herself immersed in literature from before she was born. She’s been known to tell her friends all about how she can still remember the passages she heard her mother read to her when she was in the womb - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Whether she’s whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on her second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name she refuses to disclose), Chantelle has continued to keep her feet wet with words, as it were. You’re sure to get a kick out of her giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.
New Year’s resolutions date as far back as 4,000 years ago when the ancient Babylonians celebrated Akitu. The religious festival took place mid-March when the crops were planted rather than at the beginning of January. Not only was a new king crowned, but the Babylonians made promises to gods, returned borrowed items to neighbors, and paid back any other debts.
Julius Caesar also celebrated the concept of annual resolutions in Rome. In 46 B.C. the notorious emperor changed the calendar to include January, which was named for the two-faced god Janus. The ancient Romans believed he could not only look back to reflect the previous year, but Janus could also see ahead into the future. Sacrifices and promises of good intentions were paid to the god to have a prosperous year.
Despite having religious roots, people with even minimal spiritual beliefs still enjoy making New Year’s resolutions. Most of the time, people try to improve their lives through dropping bad habits or picking up better ones. People try to lose weight by eating healthier or working out regularly. Another popular New Year’s resolution is to quit smoking. Good luck to you and your resolutions!
