NYE this year was almost a bust.
We went to eat homemade wings at my friend's parent's house and I got to play with my rent-a-niece/nephews
at 9:30 pm she came upstairs to find me playing N64 with 3 of the little boys
For some reason the older I get and still being single, I feel I'm getting more and more lame. I wasn't overly excited for NYE. Same 'ol same 'ol thing every year. We finally decided to get ready and adorned ourselves with our sparkly "indian" headbands. The first time I wore one my dad asked me what reservation I bought it on haha!
There were a few YSA activities going on at little amusement park type places so we decided to check the one out that was closest to where we lived. We got there at 10:30 pm and it was a bust. We saw 2 people we knew and they were leaving as we got there. We checked the dance floor and there were maybe 20 people. And a few random families (the place was still open to the public).
So at 11pm we decided it was a good idea to drive 45+ min away to check out the other one. I had a bunch of friends at that one who said it was actually fun. So we hurried up there hoping we would make it by midnight. We parked at 11:55pm and found our friends about 60 seconds before the countdown began. We like to live life on the edge apparently.
We rang in the new year with a carousel ride. I got an ugly camel (which I thought was just a really ugly horse at first), my friend got a horse that didn't even go up and down, and one of the guys flew off his horse while in motion. Not sure how that happened. Oh yeah and we photo bombed another one of the guy's pictures as seen below.
Then we danced the night away and watched guys go around seeing how many random girls they could kiss. One tried to kiss me, I refused for 2 reasons 1. I knew him and he just kissed my friend before that and 2. Everyone was watching. I don't do well under pressure
I seriously laugh every time I look at this picture because of the ugly camel!
The next day I was driving to my parents house and spotted tons of hot air balloons above their house.
I've been thinking a lot about how I want to improve this year. Myself, my life, my habits, my goals/productivity, etc. I feel that ever since breaking off my engagement twice and dealing with a relationship full of so many issues I can't even count, that I haven't really been able to let go of a few major things. I feel that in a way they are inhibiting me from reaching my full potential, moving on, and being happy.
I decided I need to just let it go.
This year I just need to let go of all the things I feel are binding me down.
And new things that arise, I need to just let them go.
Here's to a year of being free, letting things go, and not letting the little (or big things) in life tie me down.
