If you’ve ever been to party, you know who I’m talking about. THAT girl. The one who is either sitting in the corner crying hysterically, puking on something that isn’t hers, or trying to jump someone else’s boyfriend.
She’s a sloppy, drunk mess and she’ll follow you wherever you go. Not literally, of course. But there will always be one girl who does this to herself at every party and annoys the crap out of her friends who have to drag her home before she completely self-destructs. She drives everyone crazy and has no idea that she does…and the worst part is, she could be you if you aren’t careful.
I’m not saying that you’ll morph into a raging, hormonal drama queen every night, but there are nights where you may want to watch yourself.
It’s like a werewolf, right? Don’t go out when the moon is full, and you’ll be just fine.
Your full moon warning signs are things like your mood. Was it a terrible day? Did you flunk a exam or get into a fight or something that puts you in a bad mood? Are you feeling really homesick?
If you’re in a bad mood, stay away from the drinks that night. They may help you feel good at first, but by the end of the night you may find yourself crying on someone’s shoulders with mascara streaming down your face and no idea how you got there.
What about your body? If you don’t feel so good, consider not drinking or even staying in. Just because everyone’s going out doesn’t mean you have to. Alcohol exacerbates everything from a headache to stomach flu, and under no circumstances do you want to be the girl who can’t stop puking. That’s not only embarrassing, it’s disgusting and your friends will hate you for making them take care of your hot mess.
Guy trouble can definitely affect your night too. We like to pretend guys don’t bother us, but a couple shots in and you’ll be spilling all of your relationship problems to some guy you don’t even know.
Or worse, you could end up making a fool of yourself in front of the entire party, or end up doing something you’ll really regret the next morning.
Obviously not every night will turn out like this, and sometimes you need to go out and let loose a little bit. Just know how to manage your intake and know your limits on those kinds of nights, because NO ONE wants to be remembered as “that girl”.
