New year...seriously?

I am probably the only person who doesn't care about new year. It doesn't affect me in anyway, because tomorrow is Wednesday, and I have college. I don't have a holiday tomorrow, and even if I did, I highly doubt that anything constructive can be done in the next 24 hours. There are 40 minutes left for the new year, and it's just another day in our lives.

For those of you have a holiday, please enjoy it, because you have to go back to work on Thursday.

What makes New Year special? You change the last number of the year while writing the date, and you smile while writing it, wondering how another year just flew by. You decide to do so many things in the upcoming year, which is in the next 37 minutes, but have you seized the moment? The French say Carpedium, but have you tried it?

Living life on the edge is not planning to do what you want tomorrow, but doing what you want right now. You don't need a New Year to start new beginnings. You need a new idea. I don't have the courage to walk out any of my classes, but the fact that they mark attendance at the end of the class may have something to do with it. I want to walk out one of my classes, and tell my teacher that he's wrong. Dictatorship doesn't work with me anymore, since I have completely different ideas. Call me crazy, but do you need to dance at a club to celebrate New Year? Do you have to scream at 11:59 in the night to show that you actually have a social life?

Do you need a New Year to make a change in your life? I've begin to make changes already. I have accepted the madness, the fear, the insecurities, limits and flaws within me. I'm not going to plan anything. I can't experience Carpedium, because this is the real world. This isn't high school where you can decide to stay away from academics for a few days and laze around. That's the depressing part of life. I didn't seize the moment when I had the chance. So, all I'm asking is, do it.

Don't forget that you're 17 only once, and you won't go to jail for acting like a nut. So this New Year, try ding something new for a change. That's the real change. Try something different, completely out of your comfort zone. It doesn't have to be something crazy. I still haven't decided what I'm going to do yet, but when I do it, and embarrass myself, I won't be ashamed to admit it. I have three more months before I get my Bachelor's degree, and I'm waiting for the day to arrive. Until then, I have to be a responsible adult. After that, I am free to explore the world. So are you. I can't do it now, but for those who can, do it right now!

Carpedium.
