I know I'm getting a bit ahead of myself here but the past few days I've been thinking about New Year and what I'm going to do for it.
The thing is . . . I HATE New Year. I'm one of those people who is all about Christmas. New Year . . . it doesn't really mean much to me. It's just a date. I don't get presents. I can get drunk any night I like - unless I'm on medication or something like that - so there's nothing special about it in that respect. If you go out somewhere, it costs about three times the usual price to be squashed in a corner and feel under pressure to snog someone's face off at midnight just to make the money worth it - and so as not to feel like a loser.
Plus, it's WINTER. It's FREEZING!!! Who wants to be out in that???
Best New Year's I've had in my life? The past three.
2006/2007 - Me and my friend V got drunk in her flat and danced all night to the music channels. I nearly broke my thighs doing the stupid "Hung Up" Madonna dance.
2007/2008 - Me and my boyfriend at the time got drunk in my flat, watched silly Youtube videos followed by crappy Hogmana'ay tv and ate Pizza Hut starters.
2008/2009 - Me, two of my flatmates, one of their boyfriends and one of my best male friends got drunk in our kitchen.
All awesome nights. Despite being fairly uneventful.
The only year I actually went OUT out at New Year was, I believe, 2002/2003, where I started off at a party in someone's flat but somehow ended up outside in the Merchant City, freezing my tits off and thoroughly confused because I snogged a guy (the one who thought my boobs were boring) for the second time, but it was right after he'd snogged his gay male flatmate. This was followed by it starting to piss down with rain, me feeling sick because I'd drank WAAAAYYYY too much, and me waking over on my friend's couch the following morning with the hangover from hell.
So I don't really fancy going out this year.
But, on the other hand, I don't really fancy staying in either.
I'll have to make up my mind, and start making a definite plan soon though. It's getting ever closer . . .
I think this has officially been the quickest year of my life.
Does anyone else have plans for New Year yet???
