Post: Win Tickets to NEWaukee's New Year's Eve Party!
Unfortunately, my best experience on New Year's up until last year was staying up until midnight playing Super Mario Bro's on our new SNES with my big brother when I was 10 years old. After that incredible experience, I never went out for New Year's because I'm a nurse...and nurses work holidays. So, I spend New Year's wiping butts, dressing wounds and suctioning secretions from tracheostomies (sooo fun)! However, somehow last year I was able to finally, FINALLY be off for New Years! ...and I spent it at home wearing mukluks (don't ask), pajamas and raindeer antlers with my best friend who was in town. Ironically, we had a crazy game of Mario Party on the Wii as the clocks struck midnight. My roommates were on their way out for a last minute party at Victor's. But we stayed in and had the greatest night talking and reminiscing and laughing about the weird old men that would be hitting on my roommates that night. Anyway, I just got a new job and will be off for New Year's this year and would so love to experience the night like other people do...in style and with friends. I didn't know I would be off when my friends bought their Art Museum NYE tickets this year, so I may just be sitting at home... again. ;)
