Another year has come to an end which means that the New Year plans must be brewing and plaguing our lives.
While everyone around us is busy planning a forced evening of imposed stranger talk and expensive alcohol, we are here to help you have fun just by being home.
So, this New Year’s Eve break the bad habit and stay home.
These five ways are essential reasons to skip the party and welcome January from your bed/ couch.
It’s boringly overrated
At New Year’s, all of them want to make you believe that partying your life away and getting drunk is the only way to live your life that night, but that is simply not true. Think about how many NYE’s you have lived through that were no different from any night out on the town (that you could have lived without). Only this time it is made more nightmarish by your inability to get back home quickly, thanks to the sheer number of people out of homes.
Stay at home and order takeout
Being out, is like going for war at-least on New Year’s Eve if not always. The desperation and commotion of the night is generally accompanied by badly catered food, too many sweaty armpits and cliched Bollywood music which does not help your taste or reputation. Hence, order that pizza and chicken wings, pour that glass of wine, while you Netflix and chill and watch the world outside make poor choices.
Long and never-ending traffic jams
If snaking rows of bumper-to-bumper traffic is your idea of celebration, we would judge you and then saliently get up tp leave. If it wasn’t obvious, New Year’s Eve is the recipe for this misfortune. Since, people are in a hurry to show-off all their pieces of junk, including the ones on four wheels, it is likely that at the stroke of midnight, all the fireworks and music that you’ll hear will be imaginary as you’ll be harrowed in anticipation for the traffic to roll. P.S do not even get us started on no parking spots.
It’s a special time, spend it with your family
The best way to commemorate the birth of a new year, is by welcoming it with your loved ones. While vomiting and crying strangers might make for an interesting rom-com, they are simply bad taste in real life. Hence, decorate your house with lights, snuggle in with your loved ones and enter the year in bright, positive energy.
Plan an outing for January 2
New Year’s Eve is an industrial concept for fun, which is re-packaged and dished out every year with a changed year number but zero novelty. Hence, instead of wasting away your life at an over-crowded spot with overflowing mediocrity, put effort and plan a quality evening for the second day of the year. Make sure you make it classy, to kickstart the year in style.
Re-invent your last minute new year self with the above pointers and surprise yourself and others.
