As you may or may not know, I turn 16 in September, exactly 7 weeks from today. This will be my last birthday in secondary school, and as I haven't even figured out where I will be spending my sixth form/college years, I've decided I want to spend my 16th with all the people I'd miss if I weren't to see them again the next year, which comes to around a dozen people.
16 may not be the legal drinking age in England, but it does feel like a milestone, and with milestones, comes alcohol.
Since I originally mentioned the idea to some of my friends, and the fact that there may be alcohol present, they've been fixated on getting hammered (feel free to insert whatever verb you connotate with getting drunk here). I've been firm in trying to rehash that it'll be a small amount of alcohol, which in turn has made these friends want to see me angered by such statements.
I've used excuses such as 'I don't want to be responsible', 'it'll be me and my parents in the wrong with yours', 'there's a lot of stuff around you could get hurt on', but I'm going to be real with you, because that's what I do in my little corner of the internet.
I don't want there to be a lot of alcohol around, because I've never been truly drunk before, and am scared to be. I've had alcohol before, sure, I quite like rose, if I'm honest with you. Alcohol, however has always been something I've put off as something I'll try 'when I'm older'.
Except I am older, and I don't know if I want to be. On top of that, I've mentioned before that I'm a control freak, and the idea of getting drunk, and thus losing control because of that, it just isn't appealing to me.
Too long; didn't read: I've never been drunk, kind of scared to be; I should really reign in my control freak tendencies; my birthday is in less than two months!!!
I'd like to now take a moment to point you in the direction of a blog run by my dear friend, Jack. I've mentioned him a couple of times before, most notably in my Valentine's 'friend appreciation' post. He's one of my greatest friends, and I'd love to see him gain some visibility, because his writing style shows so much of his personality (I can hear him talking in every blog post).
Also, he's currently taking questions for a Q&A based around ear stretching, so if you have any questions, Jack can probably give you an answer!
That's it for now, but I have a couple of ideas for the next couple of weeks, ranging from beauty to gaming theories!
Love you, Eve <3
