I'm tired of them. I'm tired of having to "relive the year" in review. Enough already. I didn't care about "TomCat" and "Brangelica" the first time around, they're JUST as noxious this time. Enough! I have been disgusted by the news of the war for the whole year - and disgusted by the antics of the frat-boy from Texas for 6 years. Enough! Stop it.
The eve of a new year for me is a time to look forward. To set goals and assign priorities to them, and formulate strategies to attain them.
It is also a time that a once-friend of mine (we drifted in very different directions) and I used to always use for mental focus, by doing the things we would most like to spend the rest of the year doing.
This year I will work on cleaning up my OWN back yard, pick one of the environmental groups to work with close to home, I will work on cooking and eating healthy every day instead of just finding something to chow down. And I will make an effort to assist the other "Lib'ruls" hiding in my county - in the hopes that we can get a candidate on EVERY single opening on the ballots, not just for the large state-wide elections.
There are other goals, but this is a private, personal thing with me, and I'll deal with those on my own. For 2 days, The last day, and the first day, of the year(s), I'll try to do as much as I can toward reaching those goals in a day - to try and set my sights and focus on them. It's not a surefire thing, it's not "magick" - it's just a personal goal, and it does work frequently enough for me to keep going.
To all who will party tonite - be safe.
