As I write this, some parts of the world are less than two hours away from 2015 but in my part of the world, we still have about twenty-one hours left.
As with previous years, I am planning on having a very quiet New Year’s Eve. It wasn’t supposed to be like this as I was going to host a friend from out-of-town for the end of the year. My grad school friend, who hails from Alberta, was going to spend the holidays in Victoria with the rest of family. While they were going to back home after Christmas, he was going to hop over to Vancouver so we could celebrate New Year’s Eve. Unfortunately, his family got ill and the trip to Victoria got cancelled which meant he wasn’t coming to Vancouver at all.
Perhaps that was for the best anyways because at the end of the last weekend, I developed a bit of a sinus cold. My right sinus has been bothering me, producing some interesting substances. I also seem to have a bit of a sore throat in the mornings. There appears to be some minor fatigue and lethargy that hangs over me. I’ve definitely had worse colds but I’d have to say I’m not 100% either.
Anyways, I’m looking forward to staying warm and having a fun evening at home for the last night of 2014. I hope whatever you do for your New Year’s Eve, it is enjoyable, safe, and memorable.
