New years peeve
What I won't be doing is thinking of December 31. Although people have been planning their new years festivities for weeks, I haven't. For years, I was trotted out with family to places that I never really wanted to go to. In fact, I never saw the ball drop in Time Square until I was in University.
For the past couple of years, I've spent them at home, usually with family and sometimes with friends, watching TV, then calling it quits to a boozy night by 1 a.m.
This year, my plans fell through. I was going to have company, but company isn't reliable (the only thing you can depend on are taxes, since I've seen people cheat death more than once). It will be one of the first times I've purposely spent it alone. I've come to realize that I don't need someone to kiss when the clock strikes midnight.
Maybe it will become a new tradition.
