Everyone loves a fresh start. This explains why people get wrapped up in the idea of celebrating New Year’s Eve. The truth is, nobody keeps resolutions and those who celebrate the ball drop can’t remember it the next day.
Perhaps New Year’s Eve should be renamed “The Evening of Regrets”. It’s the one night in the year when some of the most levelheaded people have way too much to drink which is why the most ridiculous ideas are thought up.
After all, what sober person decides they’re going to climb a mountain during the New Year when they can’t even climb a flight of stairs? It’s the perfect example of unobtainable goals people set once a year.
So maybe “The Evening of Regrets” is out, and “The Evening of Creating Horrible Self Esteem by Failing at Every Single Resolution” is in.
Planning to join thousands at the spectacle in Times Square? There are a couple of questions you should ask yourself. How do you feel about being randomly groped by strangers? How do you feel about not having access to a bathroom for extended periods of time?
If your responses aren’t favorable to both of these questions, perhaps you should stay home, stay sober and go to bed before you’re tempted to make resolutions we all know you won’t keep.
