I don't like making New Year's resolutions. I never really have and I doubt that I ever will. I feel like when you make resolutions at the start of the year you feel so guilty and stressed if you haven't completed them by the end of the year. That pressure is what makes me dislike New Year's in general. I hate feeling like I need to "ring in the new year right!" or "finish the old year strong!" What if I just want to stay in my comfy clothes, watch a movie, and go to bed early? Does that mean that the following year is going to stink? Nope.
I don't want to seem like a complete scrooge. We do hang with friends, and we always have a good time. For example, last night we hung with a bunch of people for a fondue/ game night. I took on that Beer Cheddar cheese fondue and had no regrets. :) I just don't want to feel like the significance of an entire year rests on the shoulders of one night. If Rob and I don't have the perfect kiss, then that doesn't mean our marriage will be rocky, it just means that we missed the mark at that moment. If I don't have a killer party, it doesn't mean that the year is going to suck. It just means that it wasn't my best night.
I don't know, maybe I am just scroogy. How do you feel about New Year's and New Year's Eve?
