Is it wrong that I want to forsake all social plans for New Year's Eve and just go home after work (Boo!), order Chinese food and stay in???
I never committed to any plans, but I've been invited to a couple of different things, as well ast there being a multitude of meetup events for the groups I belong to waiting at the ready. I just don't think I want to spend my night out at a bar, or a house party, or anywhere but my apartment. Am I broken? :-)
Christmas was hectic. I traveled back to my hometown, I was super busy and didn't even get to see any of my friends. I got back later than planned due to flight delays, then I spent the afternoon and evening running errands and going to the gym for my workout. I'm back at work today and it is eerily quiet in the office. I'll be back again tomorrow, and on Monday (serious Boo!), though we will supposedly close early.
I just think of New Year's Eve in my head, and I think of Chinese food, pajamas, maybe a marathon of some TV show, and me at home alone when midnight strikes. I don't want to dress up and play at the bar/meat market. I don't want to be social with strangers.
This is what I did last year, too. Last year I was invited to half a dozen different New Year's events, and none of them sounded like how I wanted to spend my evening. I spent it at home solo instead, and while I may have had a small pang of regret at midnight, ultimately I was fine. Life goes on, the year ticks forward.
It’s OK Thursday
