I've never been much of a fan of new years' celebrations. I never put much stock into it as a holiday, and I've never done anything particularly memorable on such a day. Well, other than a y2k prank I did by turning off the power in a house party at midnight on December 31, 1999.
Yet today I am nevertheless looking forward to the new year. Times have been especially hard on me lately, and after my car was towed this morning, it's just been somewhat demoralizing. Life has good times and bad times; at the moment, I merely need to ride out these lows until I can do a bit better in the coming year.
I realize this doesn't make for a particularly interesting blog entry, but it helps me to say such things in a public space like this, so I'm posting it anyway.
