FROSH WEEK A COMETH!

So, you’re what.. 18 now? You got either an apartment or residence to stumble home to now, or someone has a couch you can crash on. Here are some tips to stay awesome and focused. College is about multitasking.. no?

Drinking is by far one of the most notable activities for frosh week, which is strange, cause… you’re 18. So, as an experienced drinker… (very experienced indeed).. here are some ways in which to drink your face off AND still make it to classes on time. (I wish I’d heard of this when I was in college you lucky bastards.)

I would strongly suggest eating beforehand, as this will increase your longevity, balance and decision making… at least for the first few hours.

Apparently white liquors and white wine don’t have as big a hangover as red wine and jager, (trust me on the jager part) and red wine is never a good idear, as it stains. If you’re a dancer, I really don’t suggest a glass of anything.. get a bottle of freakin’ Steamwhistle dammit and support your local brewery.. (assuming you’re in the GTA.)

Eating during the drinking ritual is a great idea, so I strongly advocate stealing somebody else’s food in order to keep your stomach full of stuff other than liquor and beer. I guess if you’re gonna drink mixed drinks, eat the limes and lemons…

Now, I picture you stumbling to your apartment, or relative domain. Make sure you’re not wearing heels, cause I’ll most likely make fun of you, and so will people like me. Drink a full, big ass glass of water when you get home, and put another one beside your bed… or next to you on the floor.  You’ll probably wake up within a few hours and drink it, and trust me, it helps.

SET YOUR ALARM!

Class the next day should be reletively easy, but you’ll be tired and you’ll probably want a coffee. I made it through my college years with a great breakfast consisting of coffee and original skittles. Apparently, this is not recomended by the Board of Health, and they say you should proabably eat some eggs or something with sustinance. Really though? What do they know?

Don’t forget to thank OSAP for the money they leant you to buy those drinks. Maybe send them a Christmas card, or even some cookies would be nice.

Hope that helps guys! If you have any questions, or you want me to take your test for you, let me know… I probably won’t though, for the record. Drinking makes me lazy.

DRUUUUNK!

So, I thunk it would be a good idear to go to my buddies house to sit in a sweet ass hammock and drink some beer before work… uh… not such a hot thing to do.

I can’t believe I a) made it to work and b) am not asleep right now… sun + beer = bed. Now my friends are attempting to get me to go to the bar… like, seriously guys, it’s 7:30 and I’m in no shape to get served. I love my life.

ANYWHO! As our show last week was “cancelled” due to a lock out, (no, not a strike, we were actually locked out) we have rescheduled the Alan Cross interview for this following Monday, which is the 25th of… what month are we in..? August? HOLY CRAP! Kids are going back to school soon times! OH MY GOD!… I’m scared.

Get out there and enjoy the sun while there’s no snow to fight with. I promise the next blog will have content… actual content!

I’m New and I’m Trying

So, it seems that with every new experience this phrase, “I’m new and I’m trying” comes out of my mouth. Why you ask? Because that way when I screw up, I can use that as an excuse, and if I don’t screw up, it makes me look better than awesome… sawesome!

Binder gave me this link as I have many useless and random thoughts that come to me, and I normally have my computer with me cause I’m a huge dork… that and Facebook was getting boring… I keep getting emails about how inactive pages will be deleted… like I care if you delete me, that means I can start all over again and pretend I don’t know half the people on my list… I looked today and I have 624 friends. I seriously don’t know if I know all of them, but apparently they know me.
I could go on about the book of the face, but I digress. Check back with me, and I’ll tell you anecdotes, laugh, cry, drink and be merry on this thingy. Maybe I’ll figure out how to link to things that make me laugh and then you too can laugh along.
