I got drunk last night.
Right now, I still have a hangover, my head is aching but not enough to stop me from writing. Drinking has always been a good way for me to spend time with my friends and unwind. I like it. I like the feeling of getting tipsy and having this slight confidence to actually interact with people. Usually, I’m this sane girl who would take care of my drunk friends and leave the bar walking upright. But last night, things got out of hand. I drunk a little too many shots of alcohol –of names I don’t even remember. I can’t blame myself though, we started at about 6:30 in the evening and ended at about 11:00. I know, it’s too early, but the thing is, we went there early on purpose so that we could go home early. I got home by 12, while my Mom and brother waited for me, and I was a bit sober when I got home.
Last night was my first time to get really drunk and vomit like three or four times. Gross, but what’s even more was that I got some on my blouse that KJ had to lend his shirt so that I could go home without looking like an irresponsible woman. I’m glad my friends took care of me and I even have to show the face of a very old (not referring to age) classmate of mine because he’s someone my mom trusts. Fair enough.
It just feels really bad to be that drunk. I feel so irresponsible. Prior to that, I was thinking of going to a college party this early April but now that I’ve seen myself like this? I don’t know. I just feel like if I let myself be this drunk again, something worse might happen. In addition to that, I don’t trust the people at parties. I mean, at the bar too, yes, but my friends and I have a table there. We just chilled and got drunk. But parties have like wild animals. I do trust myself (not fully, because of what happened last night) but I don’t trust the people that surround me even more (especially drunk people).
So the lesson for this post is:
1. Drink moderately.
2. Get good friends.
3. Be responsible.
Any tips in drinking?
