So for those of you who perhaps don’t know me so well then you won’t quite understand how antisocial I am. My idea of a good night is being in my pyjamas, watching a film, eating a pizza and possibly a slice of cake too in the space of my own home. I’ve never seen that much of an appeal of going out, getting pissed and staggering home. For me, it’s about skipping all that part and just putting your feet up at home.
Don’t get me wrong, I like going out sometimes. I’m just not someone who likes to do it that often. I like to have a drink but it tends to be at home where alcohol hasn’t cost me an arm and a leg to buy. And I get tipsy but not stupidly drunk to point where I’m throwing up.
Effectively, I’m a 35 year old in a 20 year old’s body. I went to a ceramics fair the other week and that genuinely excited me. Taking me out to a club on the other hand really won’t float my boat. I know I know – I’m a bit of a lost cause.
The point of all this? Everyone’s different. Whilst I’m not one for clubbing and drinking myself to the point where I wake up the next morning with no recollection of what happened that doesn’t mean that you aren’t. And hell, it’s a good thing we’re all different. It’d be boring otherwise.
So, if you’re daunted by university because you’re not a social butterfly then don’t worry. There are more of us out there than you would believe. And just because you’re not the type who wants to clubbing every night it does not mean you’re boring or strange. You are who you are and it doesn’t matter what people think.
