Off the Happy Hour at the Bar later.
(Things I’m taking time for this: Socializing the shy and recently feeling isolated resident that pulls on my heartstrings, meeting and integrating the new resident Drexel Housing ‘dropped’ on me, being available and present to my residents, cleaning)
But I have problems doing things for myself and need this evening to me.

It’s the good wine selection at an unbelievable price, $4? C’mon, whose not a fan of feeling like their same amount of money is being used twice?
When it comes down to the nitty gritty, I’m not a huge crowd party fan. I’ve been in enough dingy basements of drunk people to find its not my thing. My favorite parties are out in the open and free, preferably in Philly’s old city area. Or I’m just all about the Happy Hour! My favorite so far was for my 21st birthday celebration at a quirky bar, National Mechanics. It was fun.
The stress that comes in an accelerated program on somebody who’s already a worrywart? It’s currently on the lower end of the spectrum.
I had class at 8am today, which means me waking up at 6:45am to catch a 7:30am shuttle commute to a different division of campus. Usually I try to get my beauty rest in at 11 or midnight, latest. Yesterday I was drunk and happy until past 2am. I was already in comfy P.J.s and had plans to do laundry all night until some really close friends influenced me, plus I finished a Final Exam for the end of an accerelarted class just a few hours ago marking the end of 6 hours of lectures of the rest of this Quarter. (Those hours are now mine to do what ever I please with!)
Normally, I’m never that kind of last minute change and just go out gal. But being freer? Lose? Free in inhibitions for once? That’s something I’m honestly proud of. I got a free pitcher of whiskey sour, finished laundry after, had my ex-RA (semi) sleeping in my bed under the comforter, and just enjoyed myself and those around me.
Impressively, I made it fine 8am-11am for my Advanced Anatomy class. Suddenly come noon? I was lying on the linoleum floor feeling dizzy and droggy. But it was worth the stress free and friend filled night.
I rarely allow myself times like these and they’ll be even more far and few come the second week of September when Grad School takes over. It’s healthy to enjoy here and now, even if it is on a ‘not-so-good’ and last minute decision.
