Re: NYE 2012

@Tempus: hmmm, I get what you mean. I've found myself in a similar situation, not really knowing what I love, my advice is to try new things. I've found it helps to have an open mind when trying things too Smiley Happy

I love the ideas about not putting too much pressure on events

@Lokifish, I was saying that a couple weeks ago, it's too early to be near christmas and now it's NYE, like wow it's come so quick!

Re: NYE 2012

@Bee I try new things all the time, it's not just that, it's that I am not sure if I still love what I used to love. I mean, I am so unsure about my programming now, something I have sunk the past 6-7 years into. Having a bit of an identity crisis I guess.

Re: NYE 2012

Nice to hear all of you had different plans for NYE.

 

I was rostered to work on NYE at Maccas. The crowd was ridiculous when the fireworks finished at 9pm and again at midnight. People usually decide to come out and have a snack. It was pressuring to make sure everyone get their food at a reasonable time.

 

I have to say the crowd after midnight was quite enjoyable to serve. Most of them was high on adrenaline and joy and/or intoxication. Some customers felt pity for me that I have to work on NYE but it doesn't really matter for me.
One car full of boys offered me vodka in celebration. Unfortunately I have to refuse the alcohol while on shift.

 

I meant to finish at 2am on NYD, but the crowd kept coming all morning, esp the ones slowly taxi-ing back from the city. I finished at 6am instead.

 

Also, on NYE my guinea pig gave birth to 5 piglets. On NYD she gave birth to 3 more but they didn't make it.

It was a great way to end 2012 with new members of the family and a interesting start to 2013- a lesson that life can be very fragile because essentially it is a thin line between who makes it after birth and who doesn't.

 

Happy 2013!

Re: NYE 2012

Hey guys.

Hope you all had a great new years eve!

Tempus - I'm also not a fan of NYE as I often spend it alone too. But I think it's important to gain some perspective - it's only ONE night of the year. I did turn down an invitation for last night because I wasn't really in the mood for partying so I guess it's partly my own fault.

The electricity in my place actually went out at about 11:45pm last night! So I couldn't watch the fireworks and I was pretty much dying from heat exhaustion! I never realized how much I rely on fans!

I decided last night that I would buy some take away (yummy Indian) to comfort me. And I watched a movie (Rainman). I actually got really tired so went to bed at 11 (but didn't sleep because it was so hot). I didn't want to be alone so I bought my dog in and cuddled up to him and my teddy last night. Smiley Happy

Lets look forward to 2013 - lets try and think of the positive things that we have planned for this year!

Re: NYE 2012

Hello, hope you had a nice new years eve Smiley Happy.

Turns out mine wasn't that bad, I got used to the idea of being alone and just dealt with it. I ended up spending the night talking to my bestfriend, she had her plans cancelled on her so we stayed up talking until around 1 Smiley Happy. Was a better night then I expected it to be Smiley Happy.

As for 2013, bring it on, I am ready to make it the best year of my life so far and I have my bestfriend every step of the way there with me Smiley Happy
