So today was pretty good, but could have been better (mostly how it ended).
***This is the full story, feel free to skip ahead to the next starred area for the "moral"***
I had a differential equations test that I think I did pretty well in, especially considering how it could have gone much worse. I'd like to get an A in the course, but usually I'm deficient with the proofs aspect of the course, which is about 20% of the work. On the test I lucked out and the proof was one that I had gone over the night before, but I messed up on at least one other problem anyway.
My friend said that he was gonna start drinking later that night and go to a comedy show after, so I waited until an appropriate time to contact him and swung by for a bit, but nothing was really going on. A bunch of his friends were there too, but his friends are kinda weird in their composition - he's friends with a couple of guys who are pretty chill that I really like, but then the rest of his friends are whiney losers and girls that are average at best. His girlfriend was also visiting for the weekend. I really wanted to get drunk after my two back to back math midterms (statistics and the differential equations I already mentioned) and he said they were gonna start drinking after the comedy show, so I told him to text me when they got out and I left there and went over to my friends at one of the frats that I usually go to on the weekends. I had a few drinks and played a few rounds of original smash bros with some of his frat brothers, which was surprisingly fun (smash is usually fun, but i think his friends were aleady drunk which made hanging out a lot easier). After a bit I started to head back to the first friend's but they werent back yet, but I was already a little buzzed so I wandered around. Somehow I found a piano and started to teach myself the theme song to Halo 3, which was surprisingly entertaining. Then I headed back, assuming my friend would be back by now.
I called him and he let me inside. A handful of his/my friends were there, as well as his girlfriend and some other, for lack of a better word, fodder. I was expecting some drinking but nothing was really going on. They were talking about people from their high school (him, his girlfriend and one of the kids all went to the same one), then eventually his girlfriend suggested some SSBB. I was pissed off that I wasnt gonna get wasted so I decided to take it out on her (in game) when she berated me for picking pikachu (when she was Ike). I crushed her and my two other friends in a FFA - i think i went 9/2 and won with 3 lives left. We played a second game where I let them pick my character, so I played as Diddy Kong against Ike (again), Dedede and Rob, and I was too buzzed to finesse my way around the larger characters so I came in second. They decided to call it a night early, so I walked home from there, still pissed at the drinking that never happened.
***end long story***
Long story short, I wanted to get wasted after a tough week, and now I'm sitting here with a rapidly fading buzz because my friend is friends with losers. Not to say that people who dont want to drink are losers, just that these people are. I dont think his girlfriend likes me, but I really couldnt care less. He cheats on her anyway when he gets really drunk, and I'm not gonna take the side of some "random" **** over someone who's rapidly becoming one of my better friends.
On an unrelated note, I got a small self esteem boost when I got home. One of my good friends, who's drop dead gorgeous, apparently tried to facebook search me but typed my name in her status instead. I'm not necessarily saying it means she's interested in me, but it's nice to know that she was thinking about me, especially since I havent seen her in a few weeks.
