New Year's Eve always feels a bit off to me. I'm ready to put the old year to bed; I'm ready to be done with it. But I can't start the new one until tomorrow; this year isn't quite over. So I'm just messing around, not really starting anything new, not wanting to give any more of my efforts to 2007.
I'm ready for the new-and-improved 2008 me.
What an optimist I am! I know, rationally, that I will not wake up tomorrow with any more abilities or skills than I have today; but, somehow, I still expect that I will. My designs will be fresher tomorrow, my execution cleaner, my results prettier.
No sense in starting something today; tomorrow it will be a New Year!
