Oh heck yeah, New Year’s Eve was awesome.
I went out with some friends to see an amazing local band (they are so outstanding it almost pains me to call them a “local” band, but they are from Raleigh, so technically that is the correct term) and they not only completely rocked, but my friends and I had a great time. Plus, I got hit on, which always makes things better!
I don’t really have any fun anecdotes or crazy stories to share, I just wanted to mention that I went out. If you’ve been following the blog over the past couple of years, you’ll know I’m trying really hard to live more and a big part of that is making sure that I have an active social life. It is so easy for me to sit at home alone, watching tv in my pjs, feeling sorry for myself (for what- well, everything and nothing). I don’t want to be that person all the time. I want to have those experiences that you’re supposed to have when you are young, I want to create memories. The past two New Year’s Eves, I’ve spent alone at home. I didn’t even pay attention to the clock. I was embarrassed to go out because I didn’t have anyone to kiss at midnight. And really, how stupid is that? I kissed my friends on their cheeks at midnight this year. And later I gave a guy my number. Much more productive than staying in.
