Here we are at another New Years Day. This one day is usually filled with so much expectation, hope, and remembrance of the past year. The exultation of the highs, and the lamentations of the lows. For many it is the chance at a fresh start with unrealistic goals and dreams. Seems like everyone has some sort of “New Years resolutions” they try to adhere to, and make a valiant effort to reach, but most fall way short and give up on them within a few weeks, months, or even days! Do yourselves a favor and don’t make any resolutions. Just go out and live your life the best you can. You can make changes and goals for your life on any day you choose, and not just have to limit it to this one day. As the sneaker ad saying goes – just do it!
That being said – HAPPY NEW YEAR! Do your thing! Get your freak on! Party like it’s 1999!
Man, what a year it was. I started this blog a little over a year ago and this is now my second New Years with it. I think it has come a long way, and I truly appreciate all of the support and comments from everyone who has followed The Regular Guy NYC. From posts on my crazy rants, humorous ravings, the bars I party at, the restaurants I review, my athletic mud run adventures, to my off-center views on people and life here in New York City, you all have been so great in sticking with me and I want to thank you all for reading my scribble week after week.
It has certainly been a kind of up and down year. Some family health scares. Work has been challenging at times. I completed my first Warrior Dash mud run. Many good times exploring spots to dine and drink at. Fun events I attended. Hanging out with friends and enjoying life. My gal’s brother being sent to Afganistan for another tour of duty. He just came home safely on Christmas eve. Things do have a way of working out at times. It’s life, and as we usher out 2013 one can only hope that 2014 offers better experiences for all of us. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
Also, if you are nursing a hangover today, and maybe worshipped at the porcelain altar last night be sure to drink plenty of fluids. A few strong Bloody Marys are also usually a good cure for post NYE overindulgence along with some pancakes, bacon, and eggs!
Once again, Happy New Year, and I hope that everyone has a healthy, safe, fun, and prosperous 2014!
