Tick tock….days keep on ticking by.
Today I was trying to figure out when the last time was that I went this long without alcohol. It was probably during college. For someone who has consumed so much alcohol in the past ~12 years, I drank very little in college…I’m a bit of a goody-two-shoes and don’t really break the rules–hence I started drinking as soon as it was legal but not before. I really started drinking regularly when I spent two years going to school in Europe when I was 20 (I was 19, turning 20, when I graduated from college. Freak). I got there in October and was really unhappy, homesick, super sick from some bug I’d picked up over the summer, and I discovered that a bottle of wine would make me slightly less miserable.
I’ve accomplished a lot in the last 12 years, but what could I have done if I hadn’t started drinking heavily?!?!?
Feeling less tired today–I left work at 2pm to go swim in the sunshine for a little while. We’ll chalk that one up to “being nice to myself”. Work isn’t going anywhere.
