It is deeply annoying how everyone goes on about parties to go to when the year is about to end. The media itself is unreliable, advertising on street poles parties to attend until the dawn of the new year. What has become of us? What is it that our children are supposed to learn from this? You thank a higher power, or show appreciation for existence by sluggishly boozing oneself from one night to the next morning? Sweating and panting in the name of 'partying' till the wallet is weak with being empty? Rather we should be moral about the way of welcoming a new year, celebrating in a decent fashion that will not lead to news broadcasts of drunk driving deaths. And the problem comes very easily with thinking everyone is of alcohol inspired celebration, some of us would like to listen to the radio without being hassled about where we'll be sweating till 2014. A wise man once said, " There is a path which seems right to man, but end thereof is death". One only has to wait for the news to see manifestation of that. I'm simply ashamed to be apart of this nation.
