“If you are single there is one thing you should always bring out with you on a saturday night. Your friends.” Carrie Bradshaw said that line in the season four premiere of Sex and the City. Last night, my friends and I had no trouble following her advice. New Years Eve is the day to have an excuse to party hard, drink way too much than you can handle, and have fun with strangers. Well, “Carrie”, “Miranda”, “Stacy”, and I had no problem doing that last night, and I have the hangover to prove it.

New Years in the city is an event that one has to plan out. The subway is free that night, which makes transportation seem much better. But, one can imagine how insanely crowded it becomes. Everyone, of course, takes advantage of it. That’s why it is good to wear your most comfortable heels. Last night alone, I walked a good 30 blocks away from where I started to get a cab back uptown. And I was lucky in that sense.

The bars are CRAZY. You can tell that the underaged teenagers are trying to flirt their way in to the best clubs and restaurants. Clubs usually get leisurely about who they let in. They know everyone just wants to have a good time. It can get expensive ordering cosmo upon champagne upon sea breeze in the bars. I’m not going to say that it’s worth it in the end, because I’m suffering like crazy. But it was amazing while it lasted.

All I can suggest if you do have a half bottle of Veuve-Cliquot, 4 cosmopolitans, and a few shots and a beer or two, eat lots of carbs and drink lots of water. Remember you’re not in it alone. I’m guessing a good 70-75% of Americans are feeling your pain.

So, in conclusion, think about your New Years resolutions. Good luck with everything you are doing this year and I hope everyone has amazingly happy years!

MGMT wrote a song called Time To Pretend. It got me thinking: When I was a little girl, like Charlotte Yorke, I used to get all dressed up and try on my mom’s pearls. By the time I was a teenager, I was trying to look older to buy beers and cigarettes. Now, like Carrie Bradshaw says, we’re 24 going on 13, wishing we would get carded. New Years and Christmas are times to forget who we want to be and just be happy with who we are. Therefore, it has always been a tradition of mine, for as long as I can remember, to wear the most amazing dress on both Christmas and New Years and be myself. As outgoing or as shy as you may be. So, don’t pretend. Just be you. Here are some good suggestions for ways that I could describe my personality. Through clothes, of course.
