New year, new you, same old weekend pal-guide at your service. Welcome to the first one of the year – and decade. How strange is to start the following ten years without the threatening menace of machines and appliances rebelling against humankind? Maybe that’s a sign that we have evolved as a cultured society, and we no longer need the existence of doomsday’s beliefs to give meaning to our time on earth. Or maybe it’s just that reality (you know, climate change and stuff like that) is already too much to keep sabotaging us. Either way, we’ve come so far…
It’s both exciting and completely intriguing to think of what the future has in store for us. This is a time for change and to evolve, and there’s nothing like a pause from everything to settle down your priorities and obligations for 2020. Some of you lucky ones, will think of that pause as your soon-to-be summer holidays, and some of you will only count with the finde to rejoice. Well, to all of you from the last group, we have a friendly reminder: summer in the city is as interesting and cheerful as always, but minus the traffic jams and the children everywhere.
As Britney Jean Spears taught us: there are only two types of people in the world, the ones that entertain and the ones that observe. Which one will you be this weekend?
