There's nothing like the new year to make you feel alone, especially one spent alone at home during a power outage. My family, despite not being perfect, is wonderful, and I have a couple friends who are so close they feel like family as well, but whenever I'm out of the house all I see are couples everywhere. And with pretty much everyone married, getting married, and having kids, it's more and more obvious as time ticks by that I'm alone.
Yeah, so I brought it upon myself, but it still sucks. Every decision in life comes with its repercussions, I guess.
