I like the New Year. It always feels so fresh and clean. I feel like I can do anything during the new year. For at least 3 days. Then school starts and I’m back to running to catch up. But those 3 whole days are nice.
I’m not a big New Year’s Eve person. I blame every year of my life before I got married because I never had anyone to kiss. Or I never wanted to kiss anyone I was near. I never understood it. In the movies, people ended up next to random, yet extremely attractive people. And they’d spontaneously kiss. And then maybe save the President from hostages. This never happened to me.
And I like sleep. A whole holiday devoted to keeping me from sleep seems overrated. Maybe it’s just me.
I do wish all of you a Happy New Year! May you feel shiny and new for at least 3 days and kiss someone at midnight you’d like to save civilization with. (Or kiss someone at 10pm after you’ve turned the clocks ahead to fool your kids and get them into bed)
