It will ultimately look a lot different this year. Smaller capacities, no dancing but fear not, you have ample opportunity to make the same classic New Years mistakes you do every year.
Put the Night on a Pedestal
The Earth has gone to all that effort of making a full rotation around the sun so you should spend hundreds on a night that fails to deliver so often, that it may as well be called AusPost.
The Mandatory 2021 Social Media Reflection
There are two #basic paths you can take on your reflection post. You can use it as a way to rub the smug-shit of your success in everyone’s face for one last time or alternatively, you can use it to simply blame “2021” on the fact you made less progress than Ghislaine Maxwell’s recently set up babysitting business.
Bore People with Your #newyearnewme Resolution
If the entirety of 2021 wasn’t long enough to become a better person, the 1 day jump to 2022 is all you will need to completely change.
The key is convincing other people you are going to stick to your bullshit, so keep them on the edge of their seats about your plans to sign up to a gym or open a fucking savings account. You’re a total inspiration.
Snapchatting the Countdown is More Important than Experiencing It
If you couldn’t get over the excitement of a room full of people counting to 10 and then yewing fear not, because every single story on your Snapchat and Instagram will be a blow by blow account of it, some might even include fireworks.
That is essentially how the countdown will be spent, millions of people filming footage that no one will ever want to watch. Killin’ it.
Better start sucking up to that non-drinking friend you normally avoid like a warm patch in a public pool. Ubers will be sur-chaaaarging like a bull at a matador prolapse ward and Taxis have no doubt added another button that quadruples your fare for no reason.
You could try Perth’s famous public transport system if you are prepared to enter the mobile UFC octagon cage which will ultimately leave you stranded at a closer, yet equally inconvenient location to your abode.
Documenting the Human Zoo is thirsty work, so if you enjoyed what you read how about buying Belle a beer, ay?
