This Isn’t Growing Up
After hanging with the boy the other night, I left his house really frustrated and irritable, so I went to get drunk at Indie’s. Then I went home with this guy I didn’t know who’s loosely related to my circle of friends and that made me feel like shit (and then I went to brunch and a full day of work wearing the same clothes from the night before).
I’m too good for all of this shit and everyone’s telling me that I deserve better but I just can’t seem to keep myself from making the type of decisions that lead me to these situations.
Go to King’s Landing. Kill Joffrey - sorry! - grab Dad, Arya and Sansa, go to the Twins, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all of this to blow over. How’s that for a slice of fried gold?Robb Stark, A Game of Thrones (via incorrectgotquotes)
I’m not saying that I’m waiting for him to text me…
But I am waiting for him to text me.
Woo! The new Braid LP starts taking shape this Friday!
You’re Not My Boyfriend
So don’t police my drinking.
And, if you’re worried about me hooking up with my bartender friends - don’t.
Edit: Okay, so maybe I overreacted a little yesterday because I was frustrated with him (and I know that I shouldn’t be). He wasn’t necessarily policing my drinking. He just asked me if I was going to stay sober tonight and that I shouldn’t hang out with my bartender friends if I wanted to be sober.
I feel like I’m going to be that aunt who drinks vodka straight out of the bottle and ruins Christmas.
jc, ur my fave aunt
