I find myself alone this NYE, but in a way I am alright with that.
It used to be a burden, loneliness, but now I don't give a **** about it anymore.
Anyone else out there alone or just chilling at home tonight?
It's been a hell of year. Sad, horrific, funny, crazy, outrageous, loud, idiotic, nonetheless interesting. With incredible scientific advancement in
all areas, general political craziness, and nonstop attention grabbing headlines.
With many changes in my own personal life, the shedding of a lot of BS fears and worries, and hopefully the acquirement of more useful life skills,
and lessons learned.
I quit smoking after 13 years, cut down on my drinking, stopped fearing and hating myself. Which are all a big deal for me seeing how stuck I was.
And so I find myself browsing ATS and I wanna wish you all a Happy New Year. May it bring lots of love, light, blessings, happiness and/or a newer
better smartphone, more Facebook friends, more Instagram followers, more clicks, more things to defend and or be outraged about, whatever, may it
inspire change and progress.
I wish I had contributed more to this great corner of the internet this year, but I lacked the really worthwhile info to share, the time, the patience
and sometimes even the will to engage, seeing all the negativity and divisiveness that flooded this site at times.
But hey, I enjoyed the good times and swam with the bad times.
I read somewhere that 2016 was the year when the 20th century died, that may be because of all the celebrity deaths and social and political 'changes'
(lol). But the end of something is only the beginning of something else, and may we finally embrace the 21st century in a positive way, learning from
the past, and actually helping each other out.

May the force be with you
