So I'm sitting in the library trying to finishing up some work and failing miserably. Probably because I keep feeling the excessive need to check my email every 30 seconds. I should just turn my internet off while working.
Anyhow, out of no where these loud freshmen kids come and sit at the table in front of me. At first they start talking about their classes and exams that are coming up. Then the conversation took a big turn when these two girls joined the group. Here's how it went...
Pretty girl: Hey guys!! How are you?
Buff guy: Hey girl, doing pretty good. How's it going?
Pretty girl's sidekick girl: We totally just got out of class and it was so boring. What are you guys up to?
Buff guy: That's too bad. I'm actually just about to go home.
Pretty girl: Omg no you're not.
Buff guy: Yea I am.
Pretty girl: Whatever!
Buff guy's sidekick guy: Yea he's not... he said he was gonna leave half hour ago.
This mundane conversation continues until this huge guy comes outta no where and starts pounding everyone's hands.
Huge guy: eh man wassup dawg?
Buff guy: Just chillin *****, wassup wich you man?
Huge guy: Nothing dawg, just been partying all weekend!
Pretty girl: Omg remember how you used to always come to the library wasted or drunk?
Huge guy: naah.
Pretty girl: No, really! You'd be like stumbling around everywhere.
Pretty girl's sidekick: Yea totally, I remember that.
Buff guy: Yo girl I heard you drink amazing.
Pretty girl: Yea totally. I can out drink most people.
Pretty girl's sidekick: It's true. She can even out drink me and I'm like twice her size.
Huge guy: What kinda drinks you like, huh?
Pretty girl: I LOVE tequila!!
Huge guy: haha a couple shots of tequila and you're good to go. The night just turns around after that.
Buff guy: We need to party together.
Buff guy's sidekick: I'm hungry.
Random girl: I just went to McyD's and bought everything. Want some?
Buff guy's sidekick: Yea, gimme some of that girl.
Pretty girl: Yea so I'm like 19.
Huge guy: That's hot. I'm like 19 too.
Buff guy: Man you so little. I'm like 20. How you drink like that girl?
Pretty girl: I totally can out drink most girls.
Huge guy: I bet you can't out drink me.
Pretty girl: Hehe yea maybe not. But I can out drink most girls.
Buff guy: That's hot.
This conversation went on for literally 45 minutes on the same topic. Yes 'pretty girl' we get that you can out drink most girls. Sheesh. Is that the best accomplishment people can give nowadays?
The whole conversation just disgusted me really. I still can't understand how binge drinking and partying is such a huge part of the college culture. Kids get drunk, wasted, hung-over every night or every weekend and then complain about how they're not doing well in school.
I've never had alcohol because it's not permissible in Islam, but I heard that it doesn't even taste good. Soo please explain to me. How can something that tastes disgusting, makes you lose control, and gives you disgusting side effects be appealing to people?? Be smart people. Use your brains.
