So I was recently thinking of giving up alcohol. Again. I gave up drinking from a few days before my 20th birthday until my 21st birthday for a few reasons - the first of which was the amount I was drinking was a little out of hand, the second was I wanted my 21st birthday to be special. I kind of wrote about some of this before in my old blog, which you can check out here if you want.
Anyway, the reason I was thinking of giving it up now isn't because I'm out of control or anything, but I feel like it's killing my brain cells. WHAT?! ALCOHOL KILLS BRAIN CELLS?! NO WAY. At least I think that's why I was thinking giving it up. I can't remember. Damn you, brain cells, I kind of need you sometimes.
I think I was talking about doing this to a few friends of mine while slightly (ok, maybe very) intoxicated at a party at my place the other night. The only problem with me giving up drinking is that I've heard I'm way less fun when sober. From a few different people. Which is kind of a terrible thing to say to anyone. So that's fun, thanks guys! But that was the reaction that I got when I decided to quit drinking back when I was 20, was that I'm not as fun when I'm not drinking. That's such a depressing thought. I can be fun! I just have to feel less hateful.
I think it also has to do with the fact that I make some pretty stupid decisions. And while they make hilarious anecdotes, they aren't always necessarily the best decisions for my life. But as long as they make good stories, that's all that matters, right?! Plus, I make bad decisions while sober, so maybe the alcohol has no effect on me. (Um, really? In what universe would that happen? No universe, that's where.)
ALSO, HERE'S SOMETHING I DID WHILE I WAS SOBER! SO THERE!
Ok, well, that was a terrible post but I really wanted to share that video. But check out that segue! How awesome was that?!
