NOT ANOTHER ONE….

I hate New Years. There I said it. Now please wipe that shocks from the face and pick up the lower jaw and read on. The reason being the same, I hate changes and New Years is like the biggest change there could ever be. It is bigger than birthdays. Birthdays might be having me sulk for say, one week, but then I get used to the number. But it takes me almost a year to adjust to the New Year and bang, another one comes along.
And to maintain and support my views, I have never “celebrated” it. Call me a sadist, but not one year of all the twenty six years of my life have I voluntarily gone out and “partied” and screamed myself hoarse on New Years. I say voluntarily because I can’t account for the beginning years of my life. My parent might have dragged me out for a family picnic and the ceremony of the gaping at the fireworks, but that was way before I had a mind of my own.
What New Year Brings:
My biggest enemy: Change. Okay, enough of that change is for good thing. Some changes aren’t really all that great. Every New Year brings another addition to age. The big 30 is fast approaching! Every 1st of January people drill you about resolutions, which are easier to promise and impossible to be done. Each year seems like an eternity away and by the time we manage to figure something out, somehow it is December already. And each new year you have someone telling you “what happens on the first, will happen the year round, watch out” Ya right, last New Year’s Eve I slept for ten hours straight! That saying didn’t come true.
What this New Year brings:
For those of you uninformed, I left my job recently and am enjoying some time off. So it begins without a job, something I hope will not be affected by the year round jinx thing. I might become 27…. Might because a little optimism never killed anybody; what if time just stops! And my best friend gets married this year, like I needed another reason for the “Have you thought about settling down” conversation. Family, friends and scrutinizing strangers, please feel free to ask me when, how and whom.
A message to 2012:
If the Mayans are to be believed, you are going to destroy. So please be wonderful enough before actually getting into the destruction. And 2011 was brilliant for me, so 2012 you just have to be awesome to beat the crap out of 2011! Try hard!
Anyhow, who am I to sulk, here’s wishing you all a Happy 2012! Let’s hope the Mayans were wrong and 2012 is not as destructive as it sounds! Please feel free to share your resolutions and plans for 2012; I might pester you when you’ll don’t adhere to them!
