I'm in college and have no desire whatsoever to go get

  1. tanked at a party with a bunch of horny toolbox upperclassmen. 50% of the kids on my floor are stoked to get drunk...but whatever. Maybe I just don't care, maybe I'm focusing too hard on this girl i've met, but whatevvver. Confused

    Is this ridiculous? Probably.

    Nope. I wish I could turn back the clock and have the same conviction as you do when I was faced with those choices.

  3. Are you kidding, you cant be cool unless you get wasted all the time.

    Actually, Im the same way, so you got two on your side and no one against you. Looks like we win.
  4. Who says you can't learn and party? There's a reason for Sundays; to get the work and studying done that you couldn't do friday through saturday. ;)

    College Junior here. I'm an occasional social drinker, but the whole "binge" drinking thing never sat well with me. I normally get my chuckles watching the drunkest person at the party do stupid stuff.

    make that three, yo. :cool:
  7. Are you a freshman?

    You can drink without being an alcoholic. Plenty of kids do. If that's not your thing, that's cool, whatever makes you happy. College taught me to enjoy alcohol. Not in a bad way, either. It's a social lubricant and looking down on other people who enjoy drinking just makes you look like a prude. I was someone who never even touched it in high school, either.

    Take it from a member of the class of 2004... don't let college pass you by - it's over way too fast.
  8. I just have no interest in it whatsoever. It's not like I haven't tried it. I just think it is hugely overrated and I feel like I'm missing something.

    I've found the main reason to go drinking and go to parties is when you want to meet a girl. Once you've found one, the desire to do the same thing shrinks. I've been married for a couple years now, and I haven't had the urge to drink more than a Guiness or two in a very long time, and I don't go to "normal" parties either.

    Well known college equation:

    Hammered You + Hammered Her = Looove. You'll sire her babies, live with her in a cottage on the moon and look into her eyes for eternity and...holy crap! Is it noon already? Who the hell is this? Why am I naked? Where am I? Where are my boxers? Wait...why is SHE naked? Oh, man, what happened? I gotta get to class.

    I'm in high school. I have every desire to drink and smoke. Because a camel in sunglasses told me to, of course.

    Blah I had the desire to drink, smoke, and have unprotected sex with various anonymous partners when I was seven. All because of candy ciggarettes of course.

    Go to the party, get hammered, get the girl hammered, etc.

    If you don't, you'll regret it when you're 41. Believe me.
  18. I could never do that.

    The man speaks great pearls of wisdom, and you'll never regret anything you did when you were drunk. Because you won't remember until the paternity suit!

    It's a whole different kind of squandered youth, eh?
