Journal Entry Type #154: This Too Shall Pass As In I Survived Another Year

I have a three-day weekend due to the New Year being on a weekend this year. Before my recent job, I would’ve had to work while a lot of people were ringing in the New Year. I live in a city where many come to celebrate. It’s not as busy as NYC. I can and can’t believe another year is soon behind me. I’ve been craving watching the Winter Olympics during a non-Olympic year. I have to wait a few more years for that one. I’m doing the next best thing of rewatching old figure skating performances, starting in 1992 and onward, and wondering how my ankles would hold up if I ice-skated. It’s been years since I’ve put on a pair of skates. My right leg was always stronger than my left leg for some reason when pushing off. The same thing with roller blades. The stupid things a person remembers. I managed to watch no holiday movies this year even though I had the weekend off. I quickly baked premade sugar cookies to bring on my last day of work at my old job and less than five minutes there, someone rear-ended me. It was undecided if I was going to travel in January, but somehow it all came together. I’m really hoping I can make progress in 2023 with creative endeavors and have more balance in my life. I recently looked at the best cities to spend New Year’s Eve and which ones were the most and least expensive. I’ve decided not to post as much FYI and Random Information in 2023 so I can find more time to write and color. I end this entry with the best U.S. cities to celebrate New Year’s and the least and most expensive cities as well according to WalletHub. Take the answers with some discernment.
