I would have to disagree. Too much is not good for you, but 1 to 2 drinks per day are actually beneficial.

Well, I guess I will never be getting the full college experience Ed.
I'm honestly flabbergasted that adults are trying to convince me to participate in such things.

And I never said in the update that I was not enjoying school. I am enjoying it very much now. I've become involved in numerous organizations that keep me entertained.
I'm a member of:

The College Republicans
The Bill O'Reilly Fan Club
The Chess Team
The American History Club
The Physics Club

Seems like a lot but there are only 1-2 meetings per month for each.
Trust me these groups keep me very well entertained.

Besides, risking my grades by drinking all night is a foolish risk.
If I'm going to take a risk it's going to be skydiving, or rock climbing, or some form of a physical risk. At least if something goes wrong with my skydiving I won't KNOW I messed up my future.

Skydiving, yep...did that during college years too. and prior to even going to college, I was in the military...which wasn't a party, but we still tried and sought out fun whenever we could.

"work hard - play hard" was a popular slogan when I was in school. some of the most interesting, sucessful and intelligent people I've met in my life are the people that have partied at one time, then grew out of it. The worst and most miserable, frustrated and grumpy people to be around are the ones that never got laid or ever aced a test with a hangover.

different times now, I guess...now you have people "looking out for you":
"The Bill O'Reilly Fan Club"

have "fun".

Well, we're all different. I don't see why people can't accept that.

The only time I get mad at partiers or drinkers, or drug addicts is when they invade my personal space or put others in danger. If they keep to themselves they can do whatever they want.

I have fun doing what I do, others don't.
Trying to convince me to do the kind of stuff you, others, or most people find fun, when I don't enjoy it, isn't fair.

You like going to a keg party, I like sitting in bed and reading A Brief History of Time.
Different strokes.

I avoided this topic, because I knew what my reponse would be. Out of sheer boredom I offer it to you now.

I dont intend to offend, but honestly it seems to me like you need to get some thick skin bud. The truth is, your best years are behind you. Life sucks. Those imbeciles you plan on avoiding- when you find a place on this planet free from stupidity please let me be the first one you tell. They're everywhere. If you dont like your classes, change them. If you dont like your roomies, move. If school isnt that important to you then quit, get a job, and move on.

Otherwise, you just gotta suck it up and take it. Thats manhood. Thats Life in general. Everyday I wake up when I dont want to, to go to a job that I hate, to do work that makes me hurt, to pay bills and taxes that I dont want. All day long i deal with ignorant people and ignorant situations. Thats all before I come here. Sink or swim time. What happens is purely up to you.

Well I definitely sure that school is for me now.
I'm determined to get into a better school now. I know stupidity is everywhere and will follow me to Harvard or MIT or anywhere I chose to go, but I hope to at least find other students who are working towards the same goals as I am. To many students went to my school play hard and not work at all.

Well sure, some people never grow up. But if your schooling is important as you imply, then you must realize that its their life. What they do to themselves shouldnt affect you. If they dont study, do you fail? Of course not. Focus, relax, and take a deep breathe and bunker down.

stupidity and idiocy take on all kids of forms...and it's hardest to see our own when we're right in the middle of our definitions of it.

others have differing views of what they see as moronic...like being part of an O'reily fan club, for instance. someone learning an aspect about the world via a keg party or a fan club only differs in perspective, not intellegence. I was a grad student at Harvard for a year - believe me, intellegence comes in all personalities and temperments. The fact you don't realize this yet, tells me you need to get out more. GPA's don't enter into it. it's not a black and white equation. someone who drinks socially and perhaps sometimes does risky or moronic things CAN have a GPA comperable to a book worm.

whos the foolish? the person who is all work and no play - getting an A- average ...or the person who studies hard and plays hard and gets an A- average?

my first job out of college I was hired by referral...guess who referred me? a college friend who I helped in diffy-Q's, and he helped me in comp sci....I first met and talked with him at a keg party. -go figure.

for every college experience you say is dumb, I could probably give you a live account of how it was of benefit to myself or someone I knew. like people have said, it's life...roll with it.

you'll do ah'ight though...I have faith in ya.
