6. the end of an era

I've come to the end of an era - my clubbing era. No longer will I don a tiny skirt paired with an equally tiny top. I refuse to spend one more night in nice shoes, wondering if I'll be picking up an STD from the floor. I won't be taking any more shots - vodka shots, tequila shots, or body shots - and will only drink from things that are [adjective] glass that are taller than 4".  (That's what she said.)

After a recent saunter to the local Atlanta scene, I've realized that not only have I outgrown it, but it's outgrown me. Life is already a giant competition. I don't need to make myself feel horrible about my age by hanging around a giant group of blessedly naive college students/recent grads and their delusions of grandeur. I'd much prefer to spend an evening with a bunch of friends drinking multiple bottles of wine and looking up yearbook photos of politicians while telling bizarre stories collected from the DailyMail.

The fact is, I'm not only "too old for this shit," I deserve better than this. So, dear sequin skirt, it was fun while it lasted. But it's about time I retired you to the nearest Goodwill so another pretty young thing stick figure can enjoy you. Au revoir!

  1. Haha, I'll take it if you're just going to give it away.


  2. Here, here! Wine nights with friends sounds a lot more fun than clubbing, to be honest. Also, liking that strip of white in your skirt (:

  3. I feel the same - if I really avoid something, it's clubbing. Just the music is so annoying that it makes my head close to explode.
    And I really have a thing for red wine, haha.
    Your posts are intelligent, which is rare in the blogging sphere - I really enjoy reading it! :)

  4. Hahaha I'm an old soul who can count the number of times she went to a club with her two hands. :P
    But I think you should wear that sequin skirt for an outfit post no? It's kinda like that time you did an entry with a camo mini? That was super cool.

  5. I can relate 110% to your feelings about going out and clubbing. I just wish the rest of my friends felt the same way!
