So I went outside to have a look around. A few shops were open today so did a little shopping. Wanted to see how quiet it was, how many people would be out. I must have left the house at a quiet moment, as there was absolutely no one in sight for a minute or so. It was like those scenes in the movies when a lot of the population were gone (or changed into vampires or zombies or some such) and there were no other humans to be seen.
It wasn't completely deserted, most people were at the shops and the traffic was fairly light. I didn't look outside on Christmas day, so I don't know if it was very quiet outside then. I wonder if people stayed indoors because it was cold, or if they were nursing hangovers or flu symptoms.
I liked that it was quieter than the usual traffic noise and crowds of people in their holiday rush, I could even hear some birds singing in the trees in some places.

I'm not one for resolutions, as I'm not very organized or good with making plans and sticking to them. But I will try to get things done and make changes. The usual stuff, such as be more organized, waste less time, tidy things up, save more money. We'll see how it goes.

I haven't made resolutions, as such, in the last few years. However, I have previously ended up making some sort of attempt at self-improvement or the like. Last year it was trying to get over the whole shyness with a person or people I don't know.

This year, I haven't worked out what I would like to work on yet ... but then I think the last two years it's taken most of January for me to work out what I wanted to do or what I suddenly seem to try to be improving.

It was quite calm here today, too. I went to a bookstore and there were only a handful of people there. I like it, but it is a bit odd.

Happy New Year! :)

Good luck with your not-so-resolutions. ;)
I haven't made any yet, but I might.

It was quiet here also, which is always nice. Hope you have a happy new year! ♥

if i was still in long island, there would be cars EVERYWHERE. but now i live in the middle of nowhere so there's not so much traffic anymore.

i've never done the new years resolutions, if i was to make any it would probably to get my weight under control & find a job lol. i've been searching for a job for almost a year now =\ damn economy.

Happy new year!

I don't make resolutions but I do set goals. I had to look up what resolutions's been so long that I even touch the resolution thing that I had to look up what it meant all over again. LOL.

The strange quiet you described like in the movies with plagues or monsters and stuff in them...when it is like that here which is also rare it is kind of creepy and it does feel like a horror movie! LOLOL.
