5 Types of People at New Year’s


I hope you’re all  enjoying the holiday season! Personally, I had all these plans to be super productive but so far have just been eating a lot of chocolate and accomplishing little else. Though I mean, is it even the holidays if you don’t spend 90% of the time watching Netflix and 10% of the time regretting all the time you’ve wasted?

That being said, in between my excessive consumption of ferrero rochers and  candy canes (because I’m classy, but I’m also like five), I did manage to put together this little end-of-2016 post for you guys. Though naturally, I procrastinated as per usual and waited until the very last day of the year to finish it ;). Let me know in the comments below what type of person you are on New Year’s Eve – because clearly everyone in our society falls into one of these 5 categories ;).

Hope you all have an amazing New Year! Of course, being the social butterfly that I am, I’ll be spending tonight hanging out with my family in my pajamas, struggling to stay up till 12a.m. Do you guys have any more exciting plans?

Now, without further ado, here are 5  types of people you’ll see at new years…

1. The Party Animal

This is the person who’s biggest challenge of 2016 is going to be deciding which party to attend on December 31st, followed by which shoes go with their sequins-covered dress. And I’m not going to lie – I’m basically the total opposite of this person, but I know they exist because these people document everything on social media. In fact, I don’t even feel like I need to go to parties because after a few minutes scrolling down my facebook timeline – I feel like I’ve been to all of them.

2. The ‘New Year, New Me’ Guy


We all know that one person that come January 1st, just feels a sudden urge to reinvent themselves completely – and tell everyone about it. Now we’re all guilty of coming up with one or two delusional new years resolutions – but these people just take it to the next level. Because let’s be honest, we both know that you won’t be getting fit, eating healthy and learning to speak mandarin chinese… You know why? Because you say this every year, and it never happens. So stop with this ‘turn over a new leaf’ nonsense and come over here and enjoy this pizza like the rest of us.


3. The TV Friend


This is the friend who’s spending New Year’s Eve in their room, with some snacks, watching the New Year’s celebrations happening around the world on TV. Their thinking is,’who needs to go outside, when you can see the fireworks on your screen?’ And actually, I feel like this person may be on to something… food, comfort, wi-fi? What better way to ring in the new year.

4. Clueless Chloe


Okay, first off if you’re reading this and your name is Chloe, please don’t be offended I was just stuck for a title and needed some  kind of alliteration. Anyway, this is the person that just has no idea that it’s New Years Eve, and to be honest they probably don’t know even know what year it is at all. The rest of us will be doing the whole count down till midnight thing and they’re probably sitting somewhere with an old advent calendar counting down the days till last Christmas.

5.The Sleepyhead


And finally, everyone knows the one rule of New Year’s Eve is to stay up till midnight. But, without fail, there’s always that one person who – every year – just falls asleep at like 10p.m. and wakes up the next morning all confused they missed the fireworks!

    I’m definitely the TV Friend staying up ’til 4 AM as I’ve rarely slept before 2 AM. And sleep by 10 PM? A myth. I’m a fan of your art btw. Also, thank you for coming by my blog the other day 🙂

    Loved the graphics you’ve drawn. I was wondering, have ou ever considered making these on request?
    I guess I’d like to consider myself as The TV Friend but in reality, I’m The ‘New Year, New Me’ Guy! 😀 Wonderful post!

    I am definitely number 2 and a bit of number 3. I wish I was 1 though, haha! I don’t spread around that I’m going to change my life though, only internally. I will change this year though, I will. yeah, yeah… you say that every year! Haha! Great post 🙂

    Woah these are too accurate xD I am definitely the ‘new year, new me’ kind of person, because I plan a lot of things and end up failing all of them each year. I am also the TV Friend, cuz I am antisocial and I love snuggling up and just watching videos all day long 🙂
