It was a fine morning. The sky was clear and the
sun was shining brilliantly. I looked over to check my calendar, when I
realized it was New Year’s. The first day of the first month. It was
time to start planning some goals and start a fresh year.
I personally think that New Year is a day to forget all about the past
and think about the whole New Year in front of us. Right now, all I was
pondering was how this year would go—oh the adventures I would have! I
just couldn’t wait to see what life would be like! Still 365 days to
write my own wondrous life! I rushed down the fleet of stairs to get a
drink of water when I heard my mom call me. I quickly made a turn and
headed towards her.
“Oh, I forgot to tell you last night, but my friend called me and
invited us to a New Year’s party this evening.” she said.
I almost fainted in joy! A New Year’s party?! How could this day get any
When it was about 6:00 in the evening, my family and I headed to our
friend’s house. We each greeted ourselves with a friendly smile and
carried on to playing and talking happily throughout the day. The plan
was to spend the whole day in my friend’s house until midnight! Can you
believe it? I sure could. When it was 11:00 at night and everyone was
tired and worn out, we all started playing family games and watched the
T.V for a while. Finally, when someone shouted out, “It’s one minute
till midnight!” I quickly dashed to on the T.V. A news reporter said
“Let’s start the countdown. 60... 59... 58...” And with at least 50
people sitting there watching the T.V, everyone got involved with
counting the last few seconds left for this day. Then, when the
countdown ended, everyone let a bombastic yelp of joy and excitement.
All I could say was that today was fantastic! Playing with friends and
family truly made me want this day to NEVER end. But when you had so
much fun that you could barely keep your eyes open to see what happens
next, you really want the day to end and get some sleep. Now, I bid you
with great effort...a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!
