Sounds like an average Thursday, Friday and Saturday night for like every assorted young person in the this country.

Felt like I needed to clarify that because I feel as though I will be viewed as a rebellious teenager after last night. Confused

Okay. I had plans to go out Saturday and I had looked forward to it all week. I haven't been out in so long, that the prospect of hanging out with people in the flesh, rather than just chatting with my online buddies sounded amazing. (No offense. I totally love you guys.) But I needed to let loose a bit and unwind from all the of this stuff I've been dealing with for the last almost two months.

This is my day from when I woke up until I passed out again at home:

I woke up at 9:30 am and then got ready for work. I walked to work by 10 am and punched into the time clock by 11 am. I worked until 4:30 pm. I got one break in that shift and I decided to sit down outside for that brief fifteen minutes. I then left work and got home an hour later, at about 5:30 pm. I rushed to get ready to go out, because my ride was going to be there at 6:30 pm. Fast forward to about 9 pm and I had binged two drinks that I had never tried before and then I might have smoked some marijuana that I hadn't smoked in FOUR years. I got a bit caught up in the moment and I do admit to thinking that I could just pick up where I left off before when I was a mega pothead since I was 12 years old. (Don't judge me; I gave it up for various reasons.)

Well, I was warned that I might not be able to handle it, but drunk me was all, "Psssh! I got this!" Yeah... I didn't have it. I ended up sitting on the couch, falling asleep and having that "Oh, SHIT! I'm really stoned right now;That came up quick" feeling. I ended needing to go to the restroom and sure enough, I vomited for who knows how long. I really lost track of the time line from last night after I decided to indulge in my youthful escapades.

I had a female friend there that immediately realized the situation and she took care of me all night. (Again, to me, it was "all night," but it could've been a blurred couple hours.) Although I appreciate her sisterly, "us females must stick together" helpfulness, I am utterly embarrassed that she hadn't seen me in a couple months. In fact, we never even hung out outside of work. (She quit that job we worked together; We are not coworkers any longer.) Eventually, she helped me to our friend's bedroom, and I ended up having to sleep off the woozies in there in the dark. Said female friend even guarded the door as I had made a bit of a mess on my jeans and I needed to, uh... take my pants off. (I warned you I would sound like a damn rookie.) Anyway, nothing happened, don't worry. I was taken care of. (Thankfully I had a good friend there to watch me.)

I was fine at about 1 am. One would never have guessed that I was ever inebriated/stoned out of my mind only a mere few hours earlier. (I'm kinda metal in that sense.)

I really made a fool of myself. It's not like I didn't know the people who were there well, and there was only a handful of guests, but I can't help but think that they will see me as "that girl" at the party. I apologized profusely to my friend who threw the small get together, and he's okay with it. We were even laughing about it a bit last night. I am more, well, awkwardly chuckling along.

Remember that time line of my day? Well, nowhere in there did I stop to EAT FOOD. I can't believe I didn't eat anything before going out. I didn't eat ANYTHING. I know; It's a rookie mistake. I'm sure that in conjunction with the other activity and the fact that pot makes one paranoid, I think I had a bit of an anxiety attack inside of that whole ordeal.

Anyway, I needed to write this out. I think I was trying to indulge a bit too much and show myself that I was "still young" and could let loose just as I always had. But that's not the case. It's not me anymore and I need to continue to chill rather than try to reclaim the "old me." (Even though I wasn't consciously thinking any of this until this morning.)

Maybe I'm writing it out in order to show that people, no matter how great their reputation and their "normal" or usual daily actions, can make a fool of themselves in just one incident. I don't know how I'm going to convince people that that was me acting out and I really don't want to let it happen again. (Yes... I thought about the fact that my female friend could have NOT been there and one can never fully trust others anyway.)

Nobody should ever lose control of their faculties, especially when they could be in a very unwholesome situation.

I'm gonna go find some greasy food. If you're having a tough day or week, feel free to make yourself feel better while reading of my shame-filled evening Drinking Beverage

Oh you crazy people and your social lives doing crazy, stupid things.

Be glad you have the ability to go to things in order to get like that.

I can't image myself being so foolish.







... but that's cause I'd never get invited. Weeping

You're one of my favorite people, though! I'd invite you, FT Big Grin

When you're of legal drinking age, will it be your country or mine? (Wait. The legal age differs over there, huh?) Well, either way, you're invited already Angel

Also, I do want to say that I like staying in with a couple close friends rather than going out. But that's because I'm low-key...usually.

RE: Made a Fool of Myself Last Night
Well I live in Denmark... This is standard procedure. Even for more mature people. You apologized, and it sounds like the apology was accepted. No big dealSmile At least you did not lock yourself in with the hidden beers in the closet for 40 min. in freshman year amongst +40 people (without being able to open any of them...), or pass out laying on a wall while puking at the graduation party in front of +100 people or ... Well I could go on a while. My "friends" have done a lot of stupid things. You will be fine (as long as you dont do it every week...)Smile

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you
do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will
understand why I dismiss yours.

Oooh peanut..been there done that lots (worst is when you black out). If I'd been there I would have totally held your hair. Wink

I'm glad you had someone to look after you.

Just thank your girlfriend. I'll bet hallmark even makes a card for thanks for taking care of me while I got wrecked Tongue
