WHAT’SUP EVERYONE? HAPPY NEW YEAR AGAIN!
New Year’s Eve……..Instead of spending loads of Ghana Cedis on champagne cocktails and a party outfit I might wear only once, I thought why not turn off phones, lock all the doors and spend the evening at home with few friends and love ones. NOT because I hate fun, but because I hate the inconvenience of hundreds of strangers flooding the streets, the bars and clubs, all in the name of having the BEST NIGHT EVER. Don’t get me wrong, yes, I want to have “fun,” and yes, I want to take a nice picture for the ‘gram’ but I can do that literally any night of the week, if I so choose. You dig?
So I spent my new year’s eve with a group of crazy friends (good crazy) just talking, sipping on some drinks, eating; smoking some sh**t and just dancing to our fav tunes of that year. I had met some of them that very night but the vibe was good which made the night even more fun and yet calming and soothing. We all were looking forward to the new year and positive that it is gonna be great.
We had a countdown when it was almost 2018 and when it was exactly 12 AM, there was an eruption of cheers and fire works all around us. We all took turns hugging and the usual new year wishes. Being in a penthouse we all filed onto the balcony to see the incredulous fire works going on. Our British friend who had come down for the holidays was totally smitten and I was so damn proud at that moment that I am a Ghanaian, ah! we sure know how to celebrate.
Later, we stepped out to see whats going on in town and we ended up at Plot 7 club for about an hour and drove back to the apartment. We ate some more and hanged for a bit just talking till we all went to get some shut eye at 6 in the morning.
For me, hanging with different people from different parts of the world, exchanging ideas, networking and having mad fun is the bomb! Especially when you all connect on that level. Positive Vibe is very important.
That’s how I spent my New Year’s Eve so now tell me how you spent yours by leaving your comments in the comment section below.
