Charge me with a B.U.I.

2 Feb

I’m now guilty of Blogging Under the Influence.

Yep, four beers (shouldn’t it technically be beer since you don’t put the ‘s’ on deer?)  – that’s all it takes to get my cheeks all warm and red.

I don’t really have any more to say – I just thought it would be fun to blog while buzzed.  (Although I’m sure I’ll regret it later. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve had to backspace to correct my intoxicated typos!)

I really wanted to write about the 2 and a half hours of my life that I can’t ever get back after I let a Kirby vacuum salesman into our house.  (I really wanted to tell you about it but I’m afraid I really needed the beer after the experience.  Stay tuned for the next post on why you shouldn’t ever answer your door to people you don’t know – that is unless you entered the Publishers Clearing House or the person has your amazon.com order or a bouquet of flowers!)

I’m So Proud

My alma mater has once again earned the title of “No. 1 Party School” by The Princeton Review.  You’re so jealous, I know.  But you UGA grads don’t have much room to talk!  Apparently, the Dawgs are in the top 5.  (My kind of people!)

I’ll admit I did my fair share of underage drinking as a Mountaineer.  I missed one two many of my classes that Andrew and I are still paying for thanks to my college loan.  It’s funny what you don’t think about (or care to think about) when you’re living away from home and pretending you’re all cool.

Did I have a blast?  Yes.  Do I have any regrets? Yes.  Would I do it again?  Yes.  I am who I am today because of all that I experienced, good and bad.  I’m proud to say I went to WVU.  It was a beautiful and interesting place and alcohol was NEVER hard to swallow – whether you were 18 or not.  Some worry that the ranking will leave a bad taste in the mouths of employers, leaving them to wonder if their prospective new employee got any college education or did he/she just spend his/her time past out in a stairwell.

I don’t have to worry about that – it wasn’t the drinking that interfered with my education.  It was my brain.

WOOHOO!  WVU IS NUMBER ONE!  At least we’re known for something…
