My most hated time of the year, the social pressure to fake drunken enjoyment.
Every time of the year beats New Year’s Eve.
In prison, how do some prisoners celebrate? Usually by drinking some illicitly brewed ‘hooch’ or abusing prescription medication and then banging on their door at midnight. Wonderful…
I’ll be doing what I’ve done for the majority of the past 15 New Years’ eves and going to bed at around 10pm, tossing and turning for 2 hours knowing that I’ll only get woken up anyway at midnight by drunken/drug addled lunatics.
Be happy, be safe.
