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

Happy New Years' to everyone at ATS

I'm home alone. I went to Boston once for New Years about 20+ years ago with my brother and his wife, and I swore I'd never do that again. It was frigid cold, people were packed like sardines in trains.

Also have no desire to go anywhere, don't drink unless I'm at a family reunion (they make me do it) lol.

Like you, I am very content being alone. People are always at me to go out and I just would rather stay home cuddled up with my cat listening to Coast to Coast radio, or reading Missing411, or watching marathon x-files.

Maybe someday I'll go out, but I doubt it
. Alaska would be nice, Seattle too

Happy New year, we are doing our regular NYE tradition. We set the alarm for midnight and wake up to say happy new year then go back to sleep.

Lol, I should explain that in my mid twenties I never dressed appropriately for the weather, otherwise, I prefer the colder, rainy weather.

I lived in AZ for 2 years, and couldn't stand the heat. People say, well it's a dry heat. Yeah, well so is my oven but you don't see me sticking my head in that.

Also, Boston is becoming too violent and expensive to live!

Cheers and Happy New Year!

Setting off firecrackers and sipping bourbon.



Beers to start and prime rib steaks later on. Still a few more hours here on the left coast.

Loneliness ain't that bad. And your never alone here on ATS. Here's to next year!!!
