Something more creative than "Happy 2019"

Didn't make it to midnight last night. I tried. I wanted to! But I'm either deathly allergic to Joshua Trees or whatever drippy face sickness I've acquired was exacerbated by sequins and glitter. Definitely not the bourbon. After mopping my face for an hour at the bar, I finally ordered food to go and was falling asleep to the Office, eating an entire order of jalapeƱo poppers, alone, in bed by 10:30pm. And I was 1000% okay with it... Is this what growing up feels like?

It also may have been the first time I wasn't hungover in at least 10 years on New Years. Or on a Tuesday.

I did take about 7 different kinds of cold medicine and had a dissociative panic attack driving back to LA.

Regardless, time to look back and reflect on the past 365 days, for better or for worse.
