As most of you have probably guessed, I am a college student, a sophomore if you want to be exact.
During my time as a college student I have learned so many vital life lessons, all of which, can be used by women (or men) of any age.
-I’ve learned to always pack a pair of comfortable flats when going to a party.
-I’ve learned never to leave food in a community kitchen because it WILL be eaten.
-I’ve learned to always carry a condom for that friend who is “forgetful”. We don’t want any babies in college!
But I feel that the most important lesson that I have learned during my time in college is this…
College kids only drink watered downed beer!
Sure, occasionally, a hero will bring a bottle of patron or Smirnoff; but those occasions are few and rare. And after drinking this watered down beer, which you need five cups of to even be bussed, for more then a year; I realized something.
I miss good drinks!
I don’t want to drink that nasty beer anymore! Or then have to plaster a smile on my face on the way home saying, “That was so great guys” to my friends so that I don’t look like that one ungrateful chick for getting free booze.
After coming home from a party last night, I started to think of all of the drinks that I wished college parties had, and these are my top ten.
