...when you have no inclination to. Anyone else have fun with this situation? Personally, I have no desire to get stoned or drunk off my arse, and if you're gonna do it -- have fun, I won't be joining. I really don't care if it's once a month or whatever, but this is starting to get pretty irritating. I'm 17, and almost everyone my age at my school is at least all about drinking (actually, there's a huge cocaine problem amongst our jock population and has been for the past few months.) Most of my close friends are in the year younger than me, and several of them have gotten into drinking a lot, and one of my closest friends isn't far behind. Today was not a very exciting Friday night for me, I'll heartily admit. I had a really long, rough week, and to cap it all off, a really stressful day with some series problems and teenage drama at school. After dealing with that junk on far less than standard amounts of sleep for the last 2 weeks, I was so exhausted that I crashed on my bed at 6:30 until 10, then went back down again. Woke up around 1, watched some Mudvayne videos and listened to some Sonny Rollins, and the very close friend of mine who's gotten into drinking came online. I kind of needed her tonight, but apparently she had a really rockin' evening and her older brother got the pleasure of driving her home. All in all, I'd say one of the most upsetting parts of the last two weeks was that conversation. Does anyone else get this kind of thing, where they just can't talk to people when they're like that? I can deal with people doing that stuff, but I just cannot handle talking to people I know when they're drunk off their arse/stoned out of their minds.
