Well... some of you already know what I've been up to, but for the others, I will quickly bring you up to speed on what this old cat has been up to. It certainly makes me think I've lost my good sense.
In the past month or so, if I'm not at work stocking shelves, I have been running the streets, playing gigs, or hanging out with my boyfriend. I've gotten a tattoo, made my ear piercings gauge to a fourteen mm, and cut my hair. I've also gotten shit-faced drunk and experimented with pot. I lost my virginity and done other things best left unmentioned.
I live alone in my apartment and I keep my bills paid off and enough money in the bank to cover gas. Of course, the man I'm dating my mother hates and is worried that I'm going to be making a huge mistake.
Typical crap, yes?
I think a lot of this is due to the fact that I have had my life controlled ever since I was a child. I was told what to do, when to do it, and how to do it as long as I can remember. I went straight from high school to the military and only left due to a medical condition.
I wonder if I'm doing the normal crap twenty-somethings do in their spare time or just acting out because I can. I'm shocked at the physical changes as well as my mental outlook. I've actually gotten to where I could care less what people think so long as I can get my job done and take care of those who matter to me, the world be damned.
