Don’t worry. We’ve all been there. I know 1 person who broke her nose at our holiday party and another one who busted her lip from a fall (different years). So at least that didn’t happen to you.

Don’t forget. I’m sure a fair amount of people more senior than you were pretty lit as well

Everyone does the work party regret dance at least once. Unless it was really, really bad, just forget about it. Next time, stick to two drinks max. You don’t want to be the person who always gets trashed
