Disappointed, but at least I get to do it again

Tick Tock. I better make this short and sweet. I imagine in just a few hours, you, like me, will probably have a drink or two in your hands getting ready to see the New Year in with happy celebrations. We’re having a games night with friends. Of course there will be beer, and whiskey, and wine and all the usual spirits. There will also be good cheer and laughter as we say good bye to 2018. Hope yours was a good one. And here’s to an even better 2019!
One side note before I go: I woke up this morning thinking it was January 1st already. I was a bit disappointed when I realised I was a day ahead of myself. And for some reason, I started spiralling into a little existential meltdown. I think it was lack of coffee and reading an article on Tech Crunch about the end of social networking and how social media is in its death throws. Why that would fill me with existential dread, I’m not sure. I did what I always do in such times, I headed to the gym to lift some heavy weights. There’s nothing like 315 kg hovering over your sternum to focus the mind, least you crush said sternum.
Oh wait, this is suppose to be a happy go lucky newsletter. Where was I?.
Yes!
Happy New Year! Have fun celebrating this evening and look after each other if you’re out and about.
See you in 2019!
Peace,
Clay
