Beginning of a new era.  
1. While slightly belated, wishing a Happy New Year to everybody! Hopefully 2007 will be much different and better than 2006 had been. Nothing horrible happened last year, though nothing incredible happened either. Others have mentioned the unenthusiastic side of celebrating a new year, although I'm one of those that kind of figures beginning a new year is symbolic for starting fresh. I don't set New Years resolutions, but I do have very specific goals to accomplish. I just keep my dreams and ambitions inside a reasonable limit and go from there (and the majority of that is very adult life and college-oriented anyway).

2. The other day I recieved some post-holiday gifts from far-away relatives. Gift cards to some of my favorite stores, along with a box filled with See's Candies chocolates. Yummy.

Happy New Year, darling.

I really like your outlook on the New Year. I think it is very adult and realistic. While I think that a lot people do put too much emphasis on New Year's Eve being some ridiculous party, I pretty much agree with what you wrote. Because celebrating does make sense and I do believe in symbolic starts. And I am in total agreement with your take on resolutions.

YAY for gifts!

Thank you for the compliment, sweetie. :)

The thing that really gets me when people set resolutions for the new year, is the majority of people always set impossible or incredibly farfetched goals that they normally would not make if it was any other time of the the year (e.g. like attempting to lose weight, exercise or dieting, those kinds of things), and they don't do them in small steps either. The ending result is that 98.5% of people who make those kinds of resolutions hardly keep them throughout the year anyway. They'll have a mindset for two or three months and then quit. So, for me a resolution is setting a specific goal and making the commitment to achieving that goal through the entire year. Besides, my goals are things I aim for no matter what the season or time of year.

I absolutely love chocolate (but who doesn't?), and there's only two kinds I'll crave for: See's Candies and Dutch chocolate, especially Droste.
