The end of the year, which is also the end of the decade, is almost upon us. New Year's Eve is a pressure-filled holiday bursting with expectation. You have to find a party! A glass of champagne in hand! A person to kiss at midnight! While the new year is made out to be such a big deal, it is, in reality, just another day.
And no matter if it's December 2019 or January 2020, we're still just trucking along. So don't worry about the velvet dresses and the New Year's crowns. This year, no one cares if you sit at home in pajamas and watch the ball drop from your couch.
Enjoy these New Year's Eve memes and Happy 2020!
1. Not New Year's Steve
This person has a point. Only kiss women on New Year's Eve! The future is female anyway. You don't want to be on the wrong side of history, do you?
2. Better in 2020
This is truly something to aspire to. The best think about this is that you can do all three of these things from your couch. The bottom two will help with the top one, and vice versa.
3. 2020 vision
This is an extremely silly dad joke that I nevertheless chuckled at. Life's too short to roll your eyes at dumb jokes! Just laugh! But also I really don't have 20/20 vision. My eyesight is actually very bad.
4. New Year, New Me
"New year, new me" is the rallying cry of self-improvers everywhere. But this is definitely the best way to use it. Yeah, "new year, new me." The new me is like, 75 percent Dorito.
5. Big goals
Who else has had the same goals for the last four years? No? Just me. But I swear, 2020 is the year I get it all done! I'll travel the world! Write a novel! Rescue all the dogs I can find! That can all happen in a year, right?
6. "See you next year"
This is definitely the most common and worst joke you hear on New Year's Eve, so I don't blame him for his response. Anyone who says "See you next year" or "See you next decade" to you on December 31, 2019 doesn't deserve to be your friend.
7. Writing the date
I can feel myself cringe now. It always takes a few months to remember that it's a new year every time you write the date. And then even once you do remember, you'll slip up one or two more times on a really off day like six months later, making you really extra confused.
8. Giving up
Honestly, anyone who maintains a healthy eating and exercise regimen from January to March deserves some sort of award. That's three whole months! Usually, it takes like, a week for these things to crumble.
9. This is the year
Raise your hand if you see yourself in this picture. I know I do! Every year, it's like, "This is going to be the year I get my whole life together. This is the year things will all make sense." And then, of course, that never happens.
10. January 1
No matter what year it is, if it's a new decade, a new millennium, when you wake up on January 1, you gotta make sure rent is in the mail. Life goes on. 2020 is going to be a new year, a new decade, and a new chance not to put too much pressure on yourself to change everything.
