I meant to finish writing an entry last night.

But instead, I went out and got drunk.

It was sort of an accident.

The intoxication, I mean.

I had to eat afterwards to sober up, knowing that it was going to cause digestive issues but also knowing that it was my only choice if I wanted to get home at a reasonable hour.

I spent the evening sick and was late for my first class this morning.

I must be more careful.

This is not like me.

I am ashamed of myself.


  1. Don't be ashamed. We've all been there and done that. I don't normally drink to the point of being drunk, but on occasion I have indulged. And yes, the results weren't always great. We're all going to do things we aren't necessarily proud of. I don't see occasional alcohol use as a bad thing (in our society it's so hard to avoid), but if you feel it was a mistake the best way to approach it is to learn from the experience.


  2. It's ok to have a night of irresponsibility once in a while! I miss going to bars and having to shove Del Taco down my throat in order to drive home in time for my parents to not yell at me. It's all part of being young! I agree with Shane. Don't be ashamed! This is perfectly normal. :)

  3. Thank you both for the words of encouragement.

    However, allow me to defer you to this post:

    I need to be more careful than most when it comes to alcohol and drunkenness.

    I can not particularly afford to have nights of irresponsibility, and it is often frightening when I allow myself that loss of control.

    But, like Shane said. I can not change what has already passed, and the best that I can do is adapt, move on, and do better.
