The end of the year is almost upon us. For many people, New Year's Eve is a pressure-filled holiday bursting with expectations. 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 2021 or January 2022, we're still just trucking along. 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 2022!
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. 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.
3. "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, 2021 doesn't deserve to be your friend.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. January 1
No matter what year it is, when you wake up on January 1, you gotta make sure rent is in the mail. Life goes on. 2022 is going to be a new year, and a new chance not to put too much pressure on yourself to change everything.
7. Not again!
We can all agree that two bad years in a row was plenty, right? Here's hoping 2022 is better. The bar is basically on the floor.
8. Wait a second.
OK, sure, this is technically true. But we are just going to pretend it is not. Is it too late to petition to skip 2022 altogether just in case?
9. Terms and Conditions
One major lesson we should have all learned from 2020 and 2021 is that you really have to read the fine print before agreeing to enter the new year. We won't be fooled again, right?
10. This one is too real
We barely have a "p," if we're being honest. That's what this week is for, though, right?
