That last post is not how I want to end the year, not what I want to come back to in the New Year, but I'm still organizing the "chapters" of my trip, as it was very long and eventful. Instead, I thought I would share some New Year's Eve trivia and plans.
This is only my second New Year where I have been comfortable kissing women at midnight.
I have only stayed up to watch the fireworks at midnight twice. Both times were at New Year's parties in high school, and both years I broke up with my boyfriend right after.
I was at Disneyland for New Year's Eve two years ago. The park was so crowded you could barely breath, and the fireworks were canceled at 6 pm due to high winds. As a result of being pushed around all day, I was exhausted and went back to the hotel room, asleep before 10pm.
I have never had champagne on New Year's Eve.
I like to play scratch off cards on New Year's Eve, and have one for tonight.
I like dressing up for New Year's Eve, even if I'm by myself in my room.
I have always worn high heels on NYE.
I have never slept at another person's house on NYE. I did sleep in a hotel room once.
My own NYE tradition is to drink whatever I'm drinking out of a wine glass. This year it is Coca Cola and Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash, respectively.
I have never seen NYE fireworks in person.
I live not far from a casino which is having a New Year's bash. I am trying to decide if I should be fun and outgoing, and go, or be comfortable and frumpy and stay home with a good book and some pajamas. Oh, what a decision!
