Publisher Description

Comedian, blogger and essayist Samantha Irby is not going to be a better person this year than she was last. Nope. With a small group of woo-woo others, Irby sets seventy micro-resolutions, and then—with the rest of us—she fails at almost every single one of them.
A Vintage Shorts Original. An ebook short.

Thoughtful, witty, poignant—the failed intentions in New Year Same Trash will make you laugh and cry. Because you know you’ve been there. You can’t wake up in time to go to brunch. Swimming three times a week? Who are you kidding. You’re not going to shower every day or pack your lunch every day. You’re definitely not going to choose a smart movie over mindless entertainment, because you’re tired. You’re lazy. And, no, you’re never going to be a positive thinker. “I didn’t do this. I’m gonna. Maybe.” Don’t worry. It’s okay. There’s always next year. Instantly recognizable to anyone who’s ever failed to make goals and stick with them, New Year Same Trash will bring hilarious relief.

“Sam is my faaaaaaaaave.”
“3.75 ⭐️ Read this just before moving into 2023 and I did enjoy it. Irby takes us though 70 ‘resolutions’ she made the previous year and then if she actually completed them. It’s personal, funny, relatable and would recommend. I liked the notion of not placing too much pressure on this ‘new year, new me’ ideology which, let’s be real, whittles away over the first 2 weeks of January for most of us. It’s good to look back at the things we wanted to achieve and it’s nice if we did but also saying I didn’t and the reason why - no matter how ‘unreasonable.’ This short little book wasn’t exactly amazing, but I would still recommend it and am interested in reading more from Samantha Irby as did like her wit and honest humour, it didn’t seem forced at all.”
