New Year's Eve is coming up in two days.
Where is your ideal place to ring in the new year? How will you celebrate?
Traditionally New Year’s Eve brings out the party animals and bucket-listers in droves. Not me though, I’m not big on parties.
My worst nightmare is to spend New Year’s Eve in Times Square.
Watching the ball drop while being squeezed flat by a million screaming people is literally my idea of hell. Just the thought of it takes the life out me.
Seriously people, how is that even fun?
To be honest, I resent altogether the idea that New Year’s Eve is the biggest night of the year. One MUST get drunk, MUST dance the night away, MUST have the time of his/her life.
It really stresses me out because there’s this unspoken pressure for it to be the best party of the year.
It never is.
When expectations are too high, disappointment is always right around the corner.
Don’t think of me as a pessimist, but when it comes to New Year’s Eve, I’ve learned that’s pretty much always the case.
I’ve had a few good ones but nowadays I’d rather spend a relatively quiet and peaceful evening with the people I love. Good food, some fun games, going to bed relatively early, and waking up rested. That’s the New Year’s Eve I like.
