The partying lie I told myself!

I thought I had my all planned. I knew which direction I was heading in and I knew how to get there.

You can be lulled into thinking that there is a path to follow, which should be followed in the correct way, it might look something like this:

✔ School or college – gain a collection of GCSEs/A-Levels

✔ Party hard-That’s what you do, right?

✔ University – obtain a brilliant degree

✔ Party hard-That’s what you do, right?

✔ More University – earm a Post Graduate Diploma, Masters or PHD if you’re a proper fancy pants

✔ Party hard-That’s what you do, right?

✔ Get an amazing well-paid job in a field related to your qualifications

✔ Party hard-That’s what you do, right?

✔ Move to a big city and share a house

✔ Party hard-That’s what you do right?

✔ Find the love of your life

✔ Settle down-but still party!

✔ Move in with the love of your life

✔ Get married-Huge party, obvs!

✔ Have kids-carry on with the party!

✔ Shall I go on??

Shall we remove the word PARTY from this list and replace it with ALCOHOL ‘cos we ALL know that’s what I mean!

All of this was (and is) totally socially acceptable and it’s only now when I look back on it I start to question it.

What about you… has your party life followed a path a bit like this one?
