New Year's Eve Is Incredibly Stressful And Here's Why

Hear me out.

When I was growing up, I loved New Year's Eve. My family would always get together at my house and we'd party the night away. These were the glory days, though, because I didn't have to make any plans. The plans came to me.

If you're like me, you never really had a solid group of friends to hang out with, so you kinda ~floated~ around from friend to friend trying to figure out what the heck you were going to do. This made any and all plan-making TOUGH.

And don't even get me started on the whole "kissing someone at midnight" mumbo jumbo. If you're like me, you are forever single and the closest you've gotten to this actually happening is the ending of a movie or TV show.

AND ANOTHER THING: A New Year's Eve outing is not cheap. Like, at all. You have to pay for entry into wherever you're going, you need to pay for food if you're going to eat, and you need to pay for drinks, which are incredibly overpriced on NYE.

Any and all clubs are also crowded as fuck. Good luck moving around without spilling a drink and don't even THINK you'll wait in line for the bathroom for less than 45 minutes. Because you will. And it will be painful.

And just when you think the night's done because it's FINALLY 12:01 a.m. β€” think again. Good luck getting an Uber anytime between the hours of midnight and 5 a.m., because of surge pricing. Not only is everyone and their mom trying to get a car so they can go the fuck home, but you also have to deal with the stress of the total of your ride looking like this:

Through all this potential STRESS, there is one positive possibility in all of this: Just stay home. It's cheaper, warmer, and more comfortable all around. Take it from me β€” I was asleep by 11:30 p.m. last New Year's Eve. Do I feel shame? No. No I do not.
