Over the last week or so I've been sort of re-evaluating what's important to me and where I want to go in this life and part of that is making sure I continue to meet new people here in Boston. It's been almost a year since moving here and though I've gone out on a few outings with strangers, I can only really claim to have made one real friend. That's not a small feat for me, but I recognize that I settled into my life here and slowed down on the social events. I am not usually a shy person but when I get into my own world too much, I start shying away from outsiders (not intentionally) and end up sitting home alone more than I want to. That's going to change...
1. When you go out to a party are you more likely to be the designated driver or to need one?
2. Providing you are NOT the designated driver, how likely are you to drink until you at least get a buzz? How about to get drunk?
3. How likely are you to get carded?
1. Believe it or not, I'd say I'd be more likely to need one. I don't go out to bars very often, but when I do, I want to have fun and therefore don't want to be the one drinking water in the corner. Boston is great b/c I can take the T home. :)
2. It's pretty likely that I'd get a buzz, but I wouldn't do it on purpose. I typically drink wine and after 2 glasses I am warm and after 3 or 4 I'm happy. Anything after that and I'm pretty much drunk. I don't drink to get drunk really ever. If it happens, it's by accident.
3. I'd say about 1/2 of the time. It depends on who I'm with, I think. If I'm with my sisters or people who are younger than I am, I don't get carded, but with people my age, I usually do. It's pretty weird.
