Re: Live GR: Bringing in the New Year (Wednesday the 30th of December, 7:30pm AEST)

For me, new years doesn't feel so significant this year. Usually I might be on holidays seeing family or something. But it's usually not THAT significant for me anyway. It's cool to watch some fireworks on tv or message my friend HAPPY NEW YEAR at exactly 12:00am lol but other than that. I tend to want to set new plans at the beginning of the new year (like resolutions) but they never last Smiley LOL

What does the start of a new year mean to you? Is it a significant time? What will your approach to it be this year, compared to years past? (This could be in terms of immediate plans for New Years or your general approach for the year!)
I usually feel more energised and motivated at the start of the new year, but that could be because it's a holiday. I don't make resolutions or anything like that though.
Usually, some of my family members go out on New Year's Eve, but this year, it looks like we will be staying in as I live in Sydney and there are restrictions on the fireworks. So we will all be together. We will most likely celebrate it in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Every year, the farm near us puts on fireworks which we can see from our house so I hope it won't be cancelled this year.

For me, the start of a new year feels like the chance for new opportunities to arise. When the new year arrives, I usually feel like I'm asking myself, "what will happen this year?". I usually do this in an optimistic manner, but tbh I'm not entirely sure why. I think it's because the new year is considered a celebratory event, so I feel more positive about it. It definitely feels like a significant moment to me, but for me it fades relatively quickly as the days pass. I think with 2020 being such a chaotic year, I'll be more hopeful than usual for the new year.

@featuringme  Haha, a lot of people I know (myself included) can't wait for this year to be over. Bring on 2021! Smiley LOL

@Lost_Space_Explorer5  I'm not that excited for this year's celebrations either. I've sometimes made plans for the year, but life tends to throw them at the window. These days, I just go with the flow.

@Lost_Space_Explorer5 I know sometimes it can be really hard to commit to resolutions, I like to physically write mine down and look at them often or keep them in a place I can see them and I find that usually helps me stay on track.

 

@WheresMySquishy they sound like fun New Years plans, I hope your fireworks don't get cancelled!!

 

@featuringme I really like that mindset you have, I feel like we all need a bit of optimism and positivity right now, I know I do hahaha

Re: Live GR: Bringing in the New Year (Wednesday the 30th of December, 7:30pm AEST)

@WheresMySquishy The fireworks sound awesome! I hope they won't be cancelled Smiley Sad

@featuringme Yeah, I'm tempted to feel more hopeful about 2021 but also I'm worried nothing will change

We all seem to be saying there is a certain increase in motivation at the beginning of a new year! I wonder why! Change is exciting? Hm

@Lost_Space_Explorer5 Haha I'm no good at making new years resolutions either Smiley LOL I act more spontaneous and don't like following plans, so trying to stick to resolutions is v challenging. I don't think people should feel compelled to make resolutions just because it's something society does. We develop and grow in our own unique ways, so new years resolutions shouldn't be the only way to do so.

Here's our next question:

What are some good things that happened for you in 2020, or what’s something you are proud of achieving? What were some challenges for you or people you care about?

@WheresMySquishy That's such a wholesome way to bring in the new year! Although I don't play animal crossing, I know a lot of my friends do and I've heard about it a lot. Now I feel like playing it lol xD

Re: Live GR: Bringing in the New Year (Wednesday the 30th of December, 7:30pm AEST)

@celestialdreamer I love the plans you've got so far, I should probably try to do these things as well!
