Me too. And I’m calling it – it’s social media’s fault.
I blame The Facebook for the universal feeling of self-loathing and inherent un-coolness 15 million Australians experience on NYE. I made that stat up, but judging by the number of hands I can see in the air, I’m not wrong, am I?
The pressure to have THE BEST NEW YEAR’S EVER with the most attractive and fun people in existence doing something epic like popping champagne on a boat or having a boozy picnic with 30 of your closest friends is real, and it all stems from seeing how “amazing” a time everyone else is having counting down to the New Year.
On SnapChat. And Instagram. And Instagram stories. And Facebook stories. And Facebook statuses. And email. OK maybe not email. Hopefully not.
But it’s too much, right?
