I think we can all agree that New Year's Eve is the most overhyped holiday of the year. Restaurant reservations are hard to come by, and even when you manage some, the prices have been hiked up. The roads are more dangerous than ever, and you'd be out of your mind to try and get a cab past midnight, especially in Houston. Nevertheless, when you're a college student, staying in just isn't an option, so I managed to (after many days of planning and mulling over various options) make a plan that was festive yet still dodging much of the chaos. I joined several of my high school friends for a Mexican dinner then headed to a college friend's house to ring in the new year at the strike of midnight.

I had the pleasure of celebrating the night with a good mixture of high school and college friends.

A small group of girls from Fort Worth came in town to celebrate with the Houstonians, like Elizabeth, seen here with Caroline.

Even when school isn't in session, the boys can't resist but show off their Longhorn pride.

After experiencing all the hooplah of Times Square last year, I was completely content to enjoy the comfort of a home in my neighborhood with close friends, both new and old this year. I hope you had a chaos-free celebration as well and have enjoyed the first few days of 2012. Cheers!
