Seriously, the Earth reaches this one particular point in its journey around the sun - a completely arbitrary point, mind you - and everybody gets so excited that they cry and get drunk and drop gigantic balls on television?!? I mean, I understand that it signifies a start and stop point for our yearly cycle, but businesses actually close for this? Why?
Sorry, I'm not trying to be a pessimist, but it just seems silly to make such a big deal for New Years! :P
In other news, Lifehacker posted a neat article about doing a 365-day photography project. Seemed like a cool idea to keep the art juices flowing. Not that I would really call myself a photographer, but art is art, you know?
In other, other news, I'm using the New Year as a motivator for getting some things done that have been weighing on me for awhile. Hopefully within a week or two, I'll have these work-related projects completed, and I can start some full-on creativity focus. Wish me luck.
And in triple other news, I'm going to play some music with some rockin' dudes tomorrow. I'll you know how much we rocked.
