I don't understand why do they have to make such a big fuss out of it. It's only a bbq at night after work. It's not like I'm going with unknown people also. In fact, they are the ones whom I feel safe with and I trust them la. But whatever it is, ultimately I have the freedom to think and choose and make a choice whether to go or not, and I'm going. It's time to allow me to make decisions on my own woot! I appreciate your concern for my safety and you want to prevent me from going everywhere, but how long can you do that? Uni's coming, and if I stay in campus you can't monitor me at all.
So all I need from you is to trust me. =) Is that so darn hard to do?
