Where to begin..

Ok, the internet is finally restored...four days later. Customer service is obviously not the British strong suit.

Concluding last week's tale -

So I hung out with my neighbor again on Thursday night. He's a good guy, but he drinks too damn much and by the transitive property of social drinking, that means I drank too damn much again. But I made it through work ok and then took a nap. Friday night there was a meet and greet for the new Webster students. I had a great time - met some new people, hung with old people, just straight up fun. I went out to a club after and danced for awhile in Brixton (hip hop, dodgy scene). It was fun, but I was spent early. Got home around 230 or so.

Saturday, it was my friend Fabian's birthday. He's Columbian and if there's one thing I know about Columbian's, it's never desert them on their birthday (I made that up of course). It was also Guy Fawkes Night, which is a lot like the American Independence Day, so there were fireworks everywhere. We ended up at a pub in Chelsea and had a good time. Right before closing, my Columbian friend Luis bought two full pitchers of beer to top off the night. Totally crazy. About 5 of us had 20 minutes to drink two pitchers. Somehow we made it.

After the pub closed, we went back to their flat and stayed up drinking until 6 in the morning. I'm officially in detox mode right now. No more booze for me for awhile! I just can't deal. On top of that, I'm a little bit unhealthy right now (head cold/ear issues), but I think I'm getting better. More than anything I'm really tired and I'm getting more rest. I just can't sustain the pace at which these people drink. Not in my chemistry, I suppose.

Today I had class, but I didn't do much else. I had to give a presentation on Sanctions Good/Bad, and it went off well. I have a paper due next week in my other class, so I really have to put my nose to the grindstone this week. No more partying for awhile.

It's the most retarded celebration I've ever seen.

Can we say cheers for no more drinking for a LONG while?
