    It depends on the rest of the sentence. Write the sentence(s) in which you want to use them.

    Suppose you had no friends. Would you say "me am going to a party?"

    Many people in movies and in real life say such things. But they are incorrect.

    If the word is to be used as a subject of a sentence, you should use "I." If it is an object, use "me."
