today is new years eve and my plans include sleeping, eating, sewing, watching some of my all-time favorite movies and staying away from fireworks. this will be the first new years that i am spending on my own and i feel very comfortable with my decision. with all the emotional ups and downs of the past two weeks i need a break.
2012 will be an exciting year and i hope that all the hard work of the past six months i paying off. i know i still owe you a post about my plans but i grew so weary over the past week that i prefer not to write about chickens that did not hatch yet. but when there are news i will share them with you.
do i have resolutions for the new year? sort of.
- LOVE the people i love deserve to hear this more often.
- BE ACTIVE i want to be active and work out/dance/do sports as much as i did in 2011. it helps me to get my mind off of things and i feel better overall.
- COOK, BAKE, AND EAT i want to diversify my cooking and baking skills. i want to venture beyond the tried and ever used recipes.
overall i am happy with 2011 because i got to spend it with wonderful people. i loved and was loved in return. i made new friends and reunited with old ones. thankfully i was able to make-up with the loved one i lost. the year ends in sadness but not with regret.

it’s no news that i highly dislike pigeons. but there’s a new plague in town: firecrackers. now with new years eve in sight don’t go hatin’ on me. i am not talking about the actual nice looking fireworks. i am talking about all these tiny crackers that just make a ton of noise, bring nothing good and litter the streets. oh, and they hurt like hell when you get hit!
ok, let me be biased. after being hit by a firecracker last year my ever present reservations against firecrackers turned into DISLIKE!!! but since i got to celebrate last year’s new year save and sound in a city that does not allow fireworks i was OK.
this year around i’m in germany again and that means as soon as the fireworks is being sold (on the 28th i believe), stupid kids and adults light them. you walk down the street and suddenly hear the screeching sound of a cracker. to me that means “run and hide” but obviously i cannot live life running and hiding from firecrackers for a whole week (yes, this continues even after new years…basically as long as the stupid people out here run out of their ammo).
so i am trying to be outside in the dark as little as possible. as soon as i smell the distinctive smell of burned firecrackers or see a gray cloud of smoke i get antsy. thankfully, unlike with the ever-present pigeons, this is a plague i only have to endure once a year….
so dear god, this year around, please let the stupid people not have a lot of money for fireworks because i like to be outdoors and don’t want to be in hiding for another week.

you know what is sick? the way my blog stats rise whenever i post something negative or sad. that is exactly why i dislike people, in general anyways because i do like my friends.
is our world really so sick? my stats say so…
and if you came here because of the headline it is likely you have just proven my point.
