It’s a New Year.
So it’s the New Year.
Well, almost anyway.
What are you doing New Year’s Eve? Mostly the only thing I like about that question is the song. Or even better, this song. Other than that, I mostly don’t care when it comes to the New Year’s party thing. Maybe because you feel like you have to do something? I just don’t like it when people tell me what to do. I want to have fun when I feel like it, ok?
Never the less. We usually do something. My main stipulations for New Year’s gatherings these days are 1. Is this place walkable?(needs to be) and 2. Do I have to spend any money?(preferably no)
Oh. And I guess good company is important too? But you know, I could probably hang out with people I don’t really like if they are only a 2 minute walk from our house. You know what they say. Location, Location, Location.
*Disclaimer. This in no way reflects on how I feel about the people we are actually spending New Year’s with. Zac and Miek, love you guys!*
So while I do love a good excuse to dress up, I think I’ll be wearing something a little more comfy and casual this year. I mean, I’ll keep it at least one notch above track pants, because my friends don’t deserve that. But don’t expect much more. I’ll just bring lots of wine and cheese and no one will care what I wear.
Which begs the question. Did you ever care? You know what, don’t answer that. And I’ll just keep pretending that the world revolves around me.
I guess I should try to be less self involved for one of my resolutions this year. But I shouldn’t set myself up for failure either. It’s a hard line to walk, trying to be a better person, but also not wanting to change.
Happy New Year’s friends! I hope your night is full with whatever makes you happy and that you keep your resolution bar low so that we can all feel successful in 2017.
