Vitality & calmness bathed me as that famous ball dropped in Times Square and the confetti flooded Broadway & 7th Avenues. There I was, in one of the greatest cities on earth, welcoming a year full of possibilities. It may seem self-serving and cliché, but at that moment when everything seemed to slow down, I knew I could do anything.
Happy New Year, everyone! I hope 2013 will be a great year for all of us in every way that matters.
Witnessing the ball drop is free, but you have to line up early to be nearer the ball (and have a potential TV exposure). We arrived 8 hours before so we were positioned in W 48th street. The view is good, but we can't hear the performances. So, here are some pieces of advice: bring some grub, but don't drink too much; suit up because it's very cold; and be your friendliest self possible and converse with other revelers to make time pass by more quickly. And, yeah, once you've done it, you'll be crazy to do it again. lol.
