So it’s just the beginning of December and everybody is already asking everybody else “what are you doing on 31st night?”. Sure there are people who even make the next 31st night plan a year ahead! But I fall in the category of people who do not really care about the day. Not like I have anything against the idea, just that I personally have no excitement about the year ending as such. I have almost always spent it at home with my family, having a nice dinner, wishing people on the phone and sleeping in peace.
Sure, sometimes the excitement around you can get infectious. People behave as if some kind of magic is unfolding, while it really is just another day disappearing into the wormhole called “past”. December feels like a Sunday, the last month of the year and then it will be January again, as good as being Monday again, only 365 days later! It reminds me of a quote by Dr Seus:
“How did it get so late so soon? Its night before its afternoon. December is here before its June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?”
I honestly cannot even recall right now what I was doing the last 31st night, I will have to pause and think hard, I will do it later. What were you doing last December?
