I think I would like to spend the New Years somewhere other than alone in my apartment.
Is there anyone in another city who'd be keen to have me visit (and actually hang out a lot)? If your city does 「First Night」 celebrations, all the better. I don't need much more than a place to lie down (floor would be fine) and shower/bathroom access. I am not just looking for crash space though; I am seriously looking for company.
My backup plan isn't terrible and is pretty standard for me: takeout indian food, a bottle of champagne, and a good book. I've been spending way too much time alone recently though.
