What’s this ‘Eve’ thing?

New Year’s Eve, let’s face it, is overrated. Everyone makes it sound as if it’s the best evening you’ll ever had, but in reality most cafes are closed and there isn’t much to do. My best NYE ever was on a bus. We didn’t plan that, but the bus was late so we ended up seeing all the fireworks on our way to a very lame party.
Now that is cool.

This year we had plans, but they kind of broke down in the end. So now I’ll spend this evening at home, thinking about 2013 and how this year has been. It was a year of more drinking and going out, it was the year of interesting courses, of disappointments, the year of a very crappy summer and the year of boring courses.

Overall I believe this year wasn’t very fun. Let’s hope 2014 will be worth it a lot more.

Next to that let’s forget my personal problem things. There have been two ‘events’ this year that I won’t forget.There’s the rising in Kyiv. I have been there a few months ago and now the people are trying to get what they want there – they want to belong to the EU. As a citizen of that EU I can understand that. It’s a peaceful rising and still it gets knocked down with violence. And it doesn’t seem to end. It’s a very sad thing, I feel for those people and I really hope they will get what they want – which is peace and a good life. I wish them all the best.

The second thing is the bombings in Russia. There have been two bombs in Volgograd in less than 24 hours. That’s madness. It broke my heart to hear this news. You’re talking about completely innocent people who are killed because of something. Which happens all the time, I know, but Russia is now somewhat closer to my heart. And it’s quite unexpected because this country isn’t in war. At the moment there are 34 casualties and still a lot of wounded people. In sincerely hope there won’t be any more casualties and I wish the people there, or anyone affected by this, a lot of courage and strength.

Let’s just not forget that every year again, we rack up the body count. That’s sad.

But still I wish all of you a year that’s better than 2013 has been! Much love, kittens and food, and  above all, much blogging!
