The Social Aspect
I have met so many more people as a direct result of my drinking, and I would guess that many of you can say the same.
It is a scientific fact that alcohol allows you to release your inhibitions and strike up a conversation with just about anyone.
Some people choose to drink and party simply because it’s the only time they are able to be as social as they often wish they could be.
Alcohol gets people talking and laughing. It enhances the mood in every way. It creates friendships that otherwise could not have existed. It allows old friends to re-live the good ol days. But it certainly doesn’t mean that you should get super drunk, know your measure!
This improvement to your social life and relationships is too great to miss out on.
Break the Rules
Our society is governed by rules. And lots of them.
I decided a long time ago that many of these rules were way too silly.
Mohandas Gandhi said, Be the change you want to see in the world.
I think that life is a party, so I try to live the celebration. I refuse to allow laws beyond my control to prevent me from living my life to the fullest.
When you realize that you have the power to ignore rules and act according to your own beliefs, it is such a great feeling.
Give it a try. I bet you’ll feel empowered.
Remember that stereotype about college kids partying?
That stereotype is prevalent for a reason. College kids have been partying since day one. It is simply considered part of the college experience.
Having been through two years of college, I have seen countless parties. I can honestly say that my college experience would not have been a fraction as amazing and unpredictable had I chosen to live on the straight and narrow.
It has been one hell of a ride, and I don’t regret one second of it.
To everyone who’s with me, rock on. Party because you know you’re having a better time than everyone else.
To all the prudes out there, my advice is to live a little. Just try to go once and see for yourself. I think you’ll be glad you did.
