It’s the second consecutive year that our nuclear family is spending the turn of the year in Japan.
When we spent New Year away from home the year before, the reality of 2016 did not sink in. There was no countdown, and we were too tired from travelling to stay up.
It looked the same this year. It seemed like we would be greeting 2017 in the same manner and feeling like the year was always fresh.
The funniest part? We never got around to setting resolutions because we were too tired to think of them. Besides, we would do what we want and never do what we didn’t want.
