Know Yourself, Know Your Limits… a Drake Verse

jamo

As I mentioned in my previous post, I went out with one of my best friends, Jade. As we didn’t actually leave the house until after midnight and everything in Pittsburgh closes, we went somewhere close by to get drunk in our bummy fits. It was the night of Black Friday so there were tons of people out. We left the more…. diverse part of town to go to the hob-knob Shadyside area to a bar called William Penn Tavern.

I drank two whiskey sours and two shots of, yes you guessed it, Jameson. The whiskey sours were like a double so I guess I drank four.

The yellow drink was mine. I couldn’t tell you what that blue thing was.

So what did I eat to cover all this liquor? An hour prior to this girls night out, I had 4 good spoonfuls of taco salad about an hour prior. Earlier that day, around maybe 3 pm I ate Uncle Sam’s Sub chicken cheese steak with fries and sweet potato fries. As you can guess, the little I had on my stomach equaled me being tore up. To top it all off, I left the bar at 2 Am to then go eat ramen noodles– nasty, cheap and inedible. I threw it up.

these are the horrid ramen noodles… never again

And this started my 24-hour bout with throwing up bile.


Here, is the Drake Verse- my sad sad song I sang to anyone who listened. No one cared because I am 21 and should know better…. you would think I would, but nah. So I lay with my head in the toilet deciding that if God let me off the hook, I would give up the drinking craft.

I tell this story so someone else out there looking to have a fun Friday night won’t make the same mistake. Eat quality, wholesome food like bread, steak, green ruffage. Drink water. And never ever eat after a drunken night especially not no cheap noodles.

Also, this is a lesson to know your limits personally as well. Telling people no and doing what’s best for you especially when you know your plate is already full. For example, I knew I had lots of homework and couldn’t afford a hangover, but I let Jade talk me into drinking hahahaha (it’s not Jade fault I just like pickin on her).

I still rep Jamo in a Wine Glass all day… but I may need to take a lil breather from partaking in the Jamo part, just in time for finals season.

THANKS-GIVING

jamo

I went home to Pittsburgh for Turkey Day. While I was traveling on my 6.5 hour bus ride, I realized that this exact time last year was the last time I saw my Aunt Jackie, one of the matriarchs of my family. This was the first Thanksgiving without her… so crazy. All I could think about after was I must be cute for the holiday as my Aunt Jackie was always jazzy and so full of life no matter how sick she was.

Thank you GOD for letting me spend time with my family and friends before coming back to finish out the semester. My spirit needed that.

These pictures are of my family (aunts, uncles, great cousins, cousins, sister and grandparents) and friends from forever till forever (Jade from age 5 and Mariah from age 11).

Love You Aunt Jackie RIP.

P.S. I’m never going out with Jade again because she had me throwing up bile for an entire day…. sorry if that’s TMI but find out more in my next blog “Know Yourself Know Your Limits… a Drake Verse”.
