A new tradition this year.

As of 12:06 I find myself at this very moment choosing to spend my first moments of 2012 typing away my thoughts on my little piece of the internet. (Not from lack of things to do mind you)

It's tradition for us to gather together around and send off into the New Year with fanfare singing and some light to heavy intoxication. For me I wanted to take a moment to just find a quiet spot sit and try to think about I really want the New Year to be for me. It was really weird to the everyone as I told them, leaving the party early, but in each and everyone there came some point of understanding.

So as so many others counted down to the New Year, kissing their loved ones and enjoying the fanfare for a New Year; I stared up in the midnight sky at the snow flakes falling down. Just not a thought at all, totally blank. For a what seemed like a lifetime of moments turned into 5 mintues as my phone buzzed letting me know as it was 12:05 January 1st 2012. I was still me, the world around me was still the same. I was kind of disappointed to be honest, but nothing is really going to happen in 5 minutes that will set the course for the next year. But for one moment I got sit and witness the world around me begin another year.

People amaze me, they always have and sometimes I just need to remind myself of that. So much happens over the years it can just seem to blur together. So for the New Year I just want to say to all my friends: Happy Year, Good luck in 2012 and Thank you. -Nick
