Random Thought; The End of The Year

It is always a relief to get home after office hours, especially when it is raining. Nothing beats the sensation of sitting next to a window and watching raindrops slowly adhere to the glass. I’m sitting here right now, filled with this incredible sensation, ready to put my thoughts into words because is there a better way to do so?

The year is almost at an end. As usual, it all seems too familiar: Christmas, secret Santa, New Year’s Eve, resolutions, and, of course, performance reviews. When it comes to the end of the year, I always try to figure out the purpose of it other than celebrating Earth for completing its revolution. What is it for us, humans? Are we merely spectators at this event? Do we get a do-over at the end of the year? But what exactly are we revolving around?

I’ve never taken New Year’s Resolutions seriously because I believe that life does not follow an annual cycle. I don’t have to accomplish shits by the end of the year. If I want to change any of my undesirable traits, I don’t have to wait until the new year. If I want to improve my life, I could have started it at any time. So what’s the point of making a list of stupid things to do that you’ll most likely forget about by the second week of February?

Shit, I asked too many rhetorical questions because, frankly, nothing in this life is certain so I don’t really need answers. I’ll keep on contemplating even though I know I will never get to know the answers.
