Anonymous asked: You staying in for New Years or going out partying?
I’m not much of a partier, I fear. I prefer smaller gatherings when I socialize. Being amidst a throng of people make’s my head spin most unpleasantly. I fill up with apprehension and become irritable and withdrawn. It’s very tiring, and the fatigue can take days to shake off. I feel, after a large gathering, as though I’ve been coated with the psychic residue of human stupidity—every molecule of which seems to weigh a hundred pounds against my skin (but also against my mind and, if there is such a thing figuratively or metaphorically, my spirit).
