Kylie Jenner got a new tattoo yesterday, and once you actually can figure out what it says, it's a pretty decent New Year's resolution for anyone who hasn't come up with theirs yet. (Don't worry, no one has to know you stole it from a Kardasho-Jenner.)

In an Instagram post yesterday, she shared a photo of her latest tattoo, courtesy of popular New York City artist Bang Bang. It reads "\'sa-nə-tē\," which, if you recall some of the grainier details from high school, is the phonetic spelling of the word "sanity." Despite a few reports to the contrary, however it is the correct phonetic spelling, according to Merriam-Webster.

Next time you're particularly overwhelmed with school, work, or your new lip kit selling out, simply remind yourself of Kylie Jenner's hip bone.
