Over my past four years of college, I’ve come across a lot of different types of people, my least favorite being the anti-partier. This person automatically assumes they’re superior to you because on a typical Friday night they can be found “bettering themselves” while you’re on your third tequila shot. They constantly feel the need to share their disapproval of your lifestyle. “Did you just drink your whole weekend away?” Hell yeah I did. Never be ashamed about it because here are a bunch of reasons you’re, in fact, the actual winner here.
You’ll Get Closer To Your Friends
There’s no better bonding activity quite like binge drinking. Going out with my close friends and sisters always takes our relationships to the next level. There’s nothing quite like singing J Biebs on top of tables at the underage bar with a group of pals. My favorite part is when you and your girls are eight drinks deep and one of them decides it’s time to attend confession. It’s amazing the stories you’ll hear from them that will make their lives that much more understandable, things their sober minds would have never been brave enough to share. The truth is just waiting for a good buzz to be set free and drinking with your close friends will do it. You really can’t beat it.
You’ll Make New Friends
The majority of my friends I either met through my major, other friends, or, you guessed it, partying. There is no better time to meet new people than in a darkened basement over a game of pong. Clearly all these people have the desire to drink in common with you, so it’s super easy to bond and create friendships. There’s no shame in meeting people at the bar. Many people even admit to meeting their significant other there. You’re missing out on meeting so many different types of people if you’re not socializing with alcohol every single weekend. There are plenty of people in your class that you’ll only meet by going out. Don’t miss out on that. And guess what? In the adult world, it’s called “networking.” Who’s mature now?
You’ll Make Stories To Last A Lifetime
My greatest stories, that I always make a point to share, have all happened under the influence. And I’m damn proud of it. These stories will impress people I’ve just met or reassure my old friends why they put up with me. Drunken stories are the foundation for the rest of your life. When you’re old and it’s no longer appropriate to go to a bar on Wednesday nights, these stories will get you through. They’re especially important to tell your future generations. Your grandchildren are going to have no interest in that one time you pulled two consecutive all-nighters to cram for an exam. Boring. What they will want to hear is the time you got so drunk on a Tuesday you fell asleep in the road and the 5-0 had to take you home. Okay, that might be dramatic. But what about the time your professor bought you a few too many shots and you told him how you really felt about his boring ass lectures. Or the time you let an entire line of men take body shots off of you. These are important tales that will take you to bad ass grandparent level and really what else could you want in life?
You’ll Have (Drunk) Confidence
The is by far my favorite part of alcohol. This is the reason that so many good (and not so good) things have happened in your life. After five rum and cokes, you now have the courage to say and do everything you’ve been holding back on. I think drunk confidence is actually a superpower and if you never go out, you’ll never get to use it. That cute boy you’ve been crushing on in your sociology class? Drunk confidence would’ve given you the courage to introduce yourself, and plenty of things could have happened from there. That annoying bitch who used to date your boyfriend? One conversation and you could’ve found out if she secretly hates you too. Drunk confidence is the essence of my existence and I wouldn’t be anywhere near who I am today without it. In a good way, I promise.
If I haven’t convinced you that partying is the answer, then I give up. Go sip your coffee and have fun in the library. I’ll sip my vodka soda and have fun flirting with opportunities you’ll never see..
