Can I tell you how much I am READY for 2009? I am so so ready. I won’t be doing anything this new year’s eve though I hope that when entering 2010, I will be in my own apartment, throwing my own crazy party with my besties.
New Year’s Eve used to be a big deal in my house. When we first moved here from Turkey, we were so homesick…the local Turkish restaurants would bring live entertainment. Dinner, entertainment and drinks usually cost about $75-$100 a person. Well, that I can remember. It might’ve been cheaper when we first started going to them. Regardless, it was nice to be around people. Of course, one NYE tradition we’ve always had is my mom making me cry.
Then over the years, we sort of stopped. The people that we used to hang out with started to diminish. It might’ve had something to do with my mom getting even worse. We started spending NYE at home…except for one year when we were at my dad’s boss’ house. I think it was 2 years ago, going into 2007. There are two memorable NYE that I can remember…
One was NYE 05-06. I was in Turkey and even though I was trying to recover from the worst time in my life, I was just so glad to be back home. It was also my first NYE without my parents…we (me and my brother) celebrated it at my grandma’s house with my second oldest aunt, her son and husband. It was so much fun…We just stayed home but it was memorable nonetheless.
The other was 06-07…It was at a party at my dad’s boss’ house. It was a huge party and that was where I met the cute cute boy who looked exactly like Channing Tatum. But then again, I was 2 Rum & Cokes in when I met him. There was no kissy-kissy but oh my god, just being around him was fun. There were also a lot of people that were close to my age so the night didn’t drag…
This year, we’ll just be home. I’ll be in my PJ’s, chilling with my dad and bro. The probability of my mom making me cry is around %75 but that’s OK.
Because 2009 is going to be MY year.
For those going out today, BE SAFE!!! Party hard but drink responsibly. Don’t start the new year with a bad bang 😉
By the way, go over and tell Wicked what your 2 achievements of 2008…and your 2 aspirations for 2009 are…Dooooooo it.
