Life is changing. I'm not the first to say that, nor will I be the last. However, for me, it's really started to get noticeable recently-ish. Where I used to be a lonely loser who never went out and spent all his time reading, I'm now a slighty-less-lonely guy who goes out a fair bit and spends a lot of his time on teh interwebz. Who cares? I cares.
One of the biggest things was I had my first "outside my parents control" drink recently enough, at the afterparty for a musical show I was guitarist for. I only had one then, but I kinda liked it, so although previously I had been solidly against drinking, I decided I would try it a little more. I proceeded to get drunk at the next party I was at. The major thing I was afraid of was that I wouldn't be able to control myself, as my family has a history of addiction, but I surprised myself by telling myself to stop for a while, and by the time I allowed myself to have another beer, there wasn't any left. The other thing was people at the party described me as a "good drunk", which, to tell the truth, I was dead proud about. I'm sure if anyone reads this they probably couldn't give a damn about me and alcohol, but it's important to me, so here it is in a blog.
