I never thought I'd do it. I've always been against underage drinking, and for the longest time, I'd been against drinking in general. I always thought of it as being a complete waste of time. I mean, there are other ways to have fun, right?
Well, I've always been known as the "good girl" and frankly, I don't mind it. I'm a complete introvert. I'm incredibly shy. Needless to say, I've never been the type of girl who likes to spend her weekends going to parties. So, honestly, I'm a bit confused. What happened to me?
Maybe it's because I'm of legal age. Maybe it's the whole idea of graduating from high school and not getting to see many of my old friends and classmates on a regular basis. Maybe it's the fact that this whole new experience of university is a "fresh start," so to speak. Whatever the cause is, I have to admit that going to parties is, well, kind of... fun.
I want to be more outgoing. I want to break out of my shell a bit more and talk with other people. But I wanted to do it through my own self-confidence, not because I'm under the influence.
Anyway, that topic aside, I just finished registering for all of my courses for my first year of university. Throughout the past few months, I'd been completely dreading the idea of changing my routine and being with all these people I've never seen before. Now that I've signed up for my courses, I think I've finally accepted the fact that high school is over and university is actually on its way. It's kind of exciting, now that I think about it.
It's still a bit weird to think that I'm an adult, though. That little detail hasn't quite sunk in yet.
