How Did You Ring in the New Year?

name: anonymous

message: I had a bunch of friends over and we played a million board games, air hockey, and ate pizza. We could've gone out drinking, but this was ten times more fun. We can drink anytime. I would totally do this again.
name: anonymous

message: I spent it with my family watching several shows, comedy of course, and embracing the new year with a sense of slight excitement and possibly the best possible chance for one to improve one’s life. As many do, I made a resolution to see the silver lining on every cloud, no matter how viciously dark and heavy the situation (or the cloud, if we’re sticking to the metaphor) may be. Thank you for acknowledging my response and happy new year! May 2006 bring many joyful beginnings and satisfying conclusion in one’s life!

message: With my sister, my dad, his girlfriend, her two lovely daughters, and their dog I shot off fireworks. I photographed the entire night with my most joyous Christmas present, the Canon Powershot. I had a camera war with Katherine, both of us trying to snatch a picture of each other while avoiding having a picture taken of ourselves. My sister attempted manipulating my dad’s wireless internet connection into working for her DS, but couldn’t due to technical difficulties. We all joined in to watch cheap movies until the time came to shoot the grand finale of the fireworks, which could have literally knocked my off my feet had I not had a railing behind me to catch myself on. It was fun, we broke the ice between the familt seperations and made our own little almost-family memories. It was a nice way to blast off the new year.

message: i am on a varsity basketball team at my school, and every year we have a christmas party. for one reason or another no one could agree on a date before christmas, so we decided we would have it after the 25th. a few of us had a great idea, and we had practice at 9:30 PM, new years eve! it kept any teammates that would have been at parties safe, and with the team, and it was a fun, goofing off kind of practice. After that we went home and cleaned up, then headed to my coaches house to watch the ball drop. After we rang in 2006, we opened gifts, ate pizza, and stayed until 3 in the morning! We ended up all sleeping over at one of the girls houses. It was one of my best new years eves ever!

message: The new year was awesome! I had a sleepover with my girl friends and we stayed up until 5:30 in the morning! It was so cool because we played Mad Libs, cooked a five-course meal, ate rocky road ice cream with bananas, watched Saturday Night Live, danced, and did yoga and pilates. Around 11:30 in the morning, we woke up and made breakfast together consisting of scrambled eggs, homemade chocolate chip pancakes (yum!) and orange juice. I had a blast with my best friends forever!
