Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve. Are you ready? What do I mean by ready? Ready for the Earth to pass some arbitrary point in space? Normally for new year I am sleeping as I usually have work the next day. Not this time though – owing to dumb luck I have New Year’s Day off. Not that midnight is in anyway special to me. I end up seeing it almost every night owing to my inability to do what is best for me and go to bed.
As far as new year is concerned it means I can go out and get drunk!
I don’t want to do that. To me going out and getting drunk isn’t actually fun. It feels more akin to going to an exam that I haven’t studied for. I don’t like crowds as it makes moving around more brain intensive. It could also be that I am short and therefore it is easy to not be noticed.
A friend of mine made me pinky swear that I would do something for New Year’s Eve. ‘Something’ covers everything of course – although probably doesn’t include sleeping. What does an introvert do for a party?
At the moment I’ve got nothing. It would be nice to go out somewhere. I have this bad habit of wondering around aimlessly in the evening. So there has to be an aim. And it shouldn’t involve too much food. I am sure I have put on weight over the Christmas period – I haven’t had the nerve to check how bad it is.
I could eat soup on New Year. That is doing something. And no that is not a complete non-sequitur I got a soup maker for Christmas so I would be using my Christmas present. My friend might feel she was being cheated if I said: ‘Yes I did do something on New Year’s Eve – I ate soup.’
What about you? If you’re like me and like to avoid the noise and the crowds what do you do for new year?
I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.
