I stood, watching the countdown with cider in my hand. The seconds passed quickly. I attempted to reminisce about the year of 2010. Nothing came to mind.

As people around me started to count down, things began to look more and more surreal. I thought to myself, “is this how 2010 is going to end? Without any memories? Without joy? Pain?”

The countdown reached zero. I was dazed. Not knowing what else to do, I tipped my cup back and drank the cider.

I regained my senses quickly. Not fully knowing that it was now 2011, I went around hugging people and wishing them a happy New Year and attempting to start “Old Lang Syne.” It didn’t work.

As this continued, I continued to feel nothing.

I must be emotionally dead.
