” Whatchoo doin for the New Year’s Eve?? “This has become the life & death question for us all at the moment, right?
Some people have planned three months in advance while a lot of them are running like headless chickens to any event, party, or holiday they can find and afford.
Why get out of your house, get stuck in lame traffic, stay on the road with retards who drink and drive, and go to some place where DJ will play pre recorded tracks and you will get free welcome drink for the price you would pay that can buy the whole bottle of champagne.
Why do you think, even the people who closely examine each apple while grocery shopping gets ready to pay non sensical price for Apple juice at a bar on 31st December night? What changes in an otherwise responsible, rational human being?
– Peer pressure
– Pressure of missing out on fun while everyone else might be having it
– Pressure of Facebook check-in into a cool club that will on someway show your status
– Pressure of New Year’s Eve photo album on social media
– Pressure of showing your better half, how badly you want to party with them before the year ends and kiss them drunk when the countdown begins
– Pressure of starting the New Year in high spirits, like literally!
– Pressure of hoping life will change for good this year because lets face it, 2016 was pretty Fk’all
– Pressure of being cool on a cold winter night
– Pressure to fit-in as per the prescribed protocol of a New Year’s Eve. Only losers stay at home remember?
I personally don’t subscribe to this nonsense. I am known for my flamboyance and I do love to party when I feel like, but I don’t feel pressured to party because it’s New Year’s Eve or Valentine’s Day.
I would rather bring in the new year with my loved ones, around me, talking a dozen, watching a nice movie, sipping some wine or kicking their ass in some board game and watch fireworks from my window when the clock strikes 12 ( that is if I am awake by then 😬). May be I am a bore, or lazy or uncool or just plain home bird, but I refuse to act under pressure.
I totally respect the wish to party. I even respect the mood to bring in the New Year wearing great clothes at a great place with great crowd, but I am just saying that your evening will be as special even without the frills and the drill.
May we all have a great time this New Year’s Eve with or without a great holiday destination or a party Invite.
