This is my first post since getting back to university about two weeks ago.
This semester is going to kick my butt, I can already tell. But boy, oh boy, my social life may beat my workload to it. I’ve been back less than two weeks and have already made some questionable choices. I was back less than 48 hours and was already drunk and high, in someone else’s bed.
But on the bright side, I haven’t slept with anyone since, and I’ve only blacked out once so far this semester (granted, that was a hard black out before midnight…). After that night of blacking out and waking up in my bed without any idea of how I got there- or managed to put my pajamas on and take my contacts out- I woke up the next morning embarrassed and shamed. I went out and got my nose pierced, vowing that would be the change I needed to project me to changing the choices I seem to consistently make. And it seems to have worked… For the most part. I haven’t slept with anyone. I haven’t drunk texted embarrassing things to guys I don’t like when I’m sober. But I have continued to drink more than any reasonable adult should. I have gotten high more than I had all last semester.
Baby steps, right?
For what it’s worth, I do feel more confident now with the nose piercing. Like a new person who doesn’t give a shit about anything. Now hopefully I can keep this attitude going and continue the streak of not sleeping with anyone. After last semester of having sex at least once every week, it’ll be a nice change to go home by myself.
Cheers to the new year and making it a good one
