Day 233 – Almost there


It’s not the same feeling as it was on Christmas Eve, but everyone is running around again, thinking about the best dish to cook for New Years, the best party to go to, the best dress or jeans to fit in.

Well, New Years was never a big thing for me. I tried going to some parties as a teenager and never liked it; just a bunch of crazy kids getting drunk and finding excuses to break someone’s heart or to start a new romance on that so called special night. For me that night, meant something else: a chance to start over, a chance to do better, a new year that will mark some great or terrible memories. I never had a New Years resolution, fearing that by the time we get to March I will forget all about it, but the year to come is really important for me, so like never before I will have my own resolution this year.

What about you? What is you New Years resolution? Where are you spending the night between years?
