New Year’s Eve is supposed to be the night of nights. They say what you do on that night will set the precedent and theme for the rest of your year. So I guess in 2012, I will be constantly hungry and ridiculously tired?
I never had a kick-ass New Year’s Eve ever. I’ve done the whole “go hard or go home” partying, I’ve dabbled in the intimate & lowkey evening with close friends, I’ve even slept through the countdown to midnight. I just never had THAT New Year’s Eve night that should go down in my personal history books.
Each and every single year, it seems that my friends and I are scrambling last minute to figure out something to do. We toy with the idea of doing something together, only to be separated from one another on the big night. The two times that I were with my close friends were the only two nights that were actually memorable.
This particular year, it was the same ol’ New Year’s song & dance routine. “What are you doing? Where are you going? Do you wanna do this? Should we just go here?” …and on and on. I finally decided to go with Harry to the New Year’s Eve party that was taking place at my work. I had a couple other friends that were going, and it was definitely the most inexpensive of all my options.
While at the party, I had fun, but why was I was so hungry and exhausted? I became that person who counted down to midnight, hugged and wished everyone a Happy 2012 only to secretly think, “where can I still get food and how fast can I get home to jump into bed and under the covers?” Was this how the rest of my 2012 would be? I decided to hang around a few more minutes, visit some more friends at other venues, but for the life of me, I absolutely could not get drunk. I decided to give up any notion of being intoxicated, and surrendered to the fantasy of food and sleep. No regrets.
So, I’ve decided to to host my own New Year’s Eve party this year, that is if the world is still spinning after December 23, 2012. It is something that I always casually mentioned doing, but kept putting off and never put into action. So you all read it here first: there is proof in writing that I am throwing a New Year’s party in 2012!
Happy 2012 everyone!
