The New Year

NP - O-Hum - Hafez In Love

First of all, happy new year everyone. Second of all, who cares. I remember when we were younger - say 15, 16, life was so different. We made such a big deal of 'adult' things. Cool people smoked shisha. Cool people had ciggies. Cool people went to new year parties.

Now its so different. Now we're all sick of shisha - its far overrated. The ones who smoke wish they never picked it up, and the ones who are all into new year parties complain about how boring they are, and how they just aren't in the mood.

I've never been a party-goer. One, its just not me, two, paying 60 rials to get into the Hyatt for some party I dont give two shites about seems a little mad to me. Seriously, whats the point. I know you've heard it all before, but tomorrow will be just another day. Its just an excuse to party, and these days nobody I know can be bothered.

But! For the first time, I'm thinking of making resolutions this year. Not changes really, just things I want to do. Like tour Europe, or learn horse-riding and that. Just to remind myself of these things I guess. I wont write them now though, prob in the first few days of next year (which is an hour away right now).

Hmm. I guess it would be worth thinking back on the year. It was without a doubt my most difficult year to date. For some reason my mind tends to think of years as academic years, so when I think back to, say, April or May, I feel like its 'last year'. Anyway. First year of uni finished this year, with two absolutely insane exam periods. I had to grow up quick and start to take care of myself. Gained a lot of independence, and went through some intense personal issues. Halfway through my 2nd year of uni now (which is actually 3rd year, if you're thinking the US system - the UK system has a grade 13 which is equivalent to 1st year uni...so I'm a 3rd year basically - one more year to go), and the workload is absolutely nuts. Its fun, but insane. Maybe its me thats insane, who knows. Maybe 2005 was the year that I lost my mind. If thats the case, then 2006 will be the year that I lose my soul.



I can't wait! Happy New Year all! :D

    I like the idea of trying new things out in the new year as opposed to working on "resolutions." It makes for a much more fulfilling end of year assesment.

    On another note...why pay 60 rials when you can just sneak in. I never really partied...but always found a way to crash a party

    To all good things in the double-o six...

    Peace,
    The Mighty Chef Raw
