I've been contemplating for the longest time if I should hold a party for my birthday next year. Ever since that huge (failure) bash when I was 20, I decided never ever to hold a large party again. Well, back then, the people I invited were of a different "class". This might sound condescending towards some, or make me sound like I have extremely high expectations of people, but the truth was I did not have good guests at that point of time. By that I mean, behavioral wise.
And so I stopped birthday parties after that incident happened but each year, I felt envious of friends who are able to host good parties for everyone's get together. The thing is, planning a party and all is such a tough job. You'll have so much to worry about and stress over, the food, the number of people attending, the location, the setup and the list goes on.
If I were to gather some friends for a night out with some drinks at the club, I wouldn't want to risk going home in puke and not remembering a single thing the night before or worse, having to take care of drunken friends. I honestly think that people ought to be responsible for themselves. We should all know our liquor limits. Don't drink just to get into the high and be irresponsible for your own actions, expecting others to take care of you.
Le sigh. I shouldn't waste away my youth right and totally have a smashing party. All I need to do is make some extra effort to plan a really awesome one and have a good time with all the important people in my life.
Everyone who is invited eventually will have to do an Ellie Goulding "Starry Eyed" dance together, no exceptions.
