Every year I make a point of not bullshit the current year and hope for a better one because I noticed people got on a loop of always thinking the current year is the worst year ever and hoping the next one will be magically better for unknown reasons.

I think this year is special (in a bad way) and I can totally see people fed up with it, but it's not like things will improve because the clock ticked past midnight.

I totally understand the need to celebrate and gather and I think this is good, even necessary, but the road ahead is long and I believe what will make it good or bad is in part how we act upon it. It's us, not a number on the calendar, who rules our fates.

This all said, Happy New Year.
