Hi. I’m radio announcer, author, professional dancer and amateur psychic Tanya Hennessy. Welcome to my advice column, and you should always take life advice from someone has who is wearing no bra and has zero idea of what they are doing 100% of the time.

This month’s edition is about, JANUARY AND NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS!


Is it wrong that I’ve already broken my New Year’s Resolutions?
Nope. That’s why you have to make realistic ones so you don’t feel like you’ve failed. For example, “In 2019 I will nap more, eat more Uber Eats and watch more TV”. Achievable.  

I’m so poor this time of year. Any advice?

One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to travel more, where should I go?

I just finished school. How do I know what career I should do?
Do a BuzzFeed quiz. Also on a BuzzFeed quiz you can find out what kind of marginalised “Friends” character you would be, based on your star sign. What a credible source.

I got engaged over New Year's. How do I plan a wedding when I work and have kids?
Easy. Like everyone else. Plan it at work. Seriously - that’s what a job is for. 

I really want to lose weight in 2019. How do I do that?
Gurl, if I knew that I wouldn’t be typing this in a muu muu.

2019 is New Year New Me, I want to go vegan. But I love, love, love meat! What should I do?
Don’t become vegan. Also - who loves meat that much they write love three times?  

I hate January. Is that normal?
Yes January is the worst. It’s the Monday of months. No one is working properly, nothing is open. Everything is all over the shop. In saying that I also hate February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November and December.   

I don’t have a pool, how can I keep cool in summer?
Got a bath? You got a pool.
