Some of you may already know this, but I hate New Year's Eve. I've never been able to put my finger on why I do, but there it is. I have never enjoyed this holiday. It has always depressed me. It has always felt false or inauthentic or untrue, whatever works for you. But today I turn over a new leaf.
Today, I shall keep my disdain to myself. I shall smile at my neighbor. I shall play with my spouse and her friends. I will eat more donuts. For, we know donuts make everything better in the end. Donuts are good to us.
I shall not speak of false promises. I shall not speak of arbitrary calendrical madness. I will instead have fun.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
