Someone I knew in Uni emailed last week, I haven't spoken to this person since I left over a year ago so at first it was nice to hear what they where doing now. After a few paragraphs of reading about her perfect job/family/boyfriend and life in general I'd had enough. How do I reply to her email, do I tell the truth, for example.....her question: "What am I up to now?..." - my answer (not much), work/eat/get pissed/sleep, then start over again or maybe..."I'm still stalking, ranting, obsessing over weird things, watching the same films over and over again, drinking way too much alcohol than is good for me etc. Or do I make something up so that I sound like I'm doing everything that I've ever wanted and so that I sound slightly more mature.
I don't know why it matters, this girl knew what I was like in Uni, I just realise that I still live the majority of my life like I'm still a student. I never thought that I say this but I actually miss lectures (when I went). Life as a student was so fucking easy; get up late, go to an hour lecture and possibly a seminar, then spend most of the night in the pub.
Objectives for the rest of the year (bit late for New Year resolutions, but who cares):
1) Stop drinking quite as much alcohol (my liver will thank me later)
2) Actually save some money; round the world trips aren't cheap
3) Move out of my parents house; it's cheaper but I'm not 14 anymore.
4) Make more effort to see my friends (not just when getting pissed at night); don't want to end up as scary cat woman (lives in a huge old house on a hill with 50 cats)
