Oh. Another year has passed. It’s not a very pro thing, and not always magical. Because celebrating New Year’s Eve is like celebrating when the clock strikes midnight. It was fun a couple of hundred years ago, when the candles would melt away into oblivion, leaving night as dark as day without light. Celebrating midnight back then might have been fun, like a once in a year occasion. But now people rarely even go to sleep before midnight. Which is not a bad thing, mind you.

As for me, I hope this candle never melts away. Candles are sort of pro things. They’re made of wax, and a piece of heavily woven cloth fibre. And they last for about 2 or 3 hours depending on their pro-ness. Very pro candles last for as long as 3 hours, 0 minutes and 59 seconds, which is longer than the battery life of an iPhone on Wi-Fi.

When can I go along to my next experience and wait for that to end?

There must be a sort of iPhone Application for a countdown to the new year. There’s an app for almost everything under the sun on the iPhone. Including a sun-dial application. I mean, what’s the point of having a sun-dial when you can just look in the top corner of the screen and see the time? Noob, please.

Anyway, it’s around 45 minutes till my clock strikes midnight. It’s 15 minutes fast you see; helps with reaching school not on time.
