Point/Counterpoint: I’ve Decided to Stop Drinking vs. WHO WANTS TO DO SHOTS?!?

I’ve Decided To Stop Drinking

by Kevin Greenberg

Me SoberI think I’ve reached my limit. It’s been a fun ride but it’s time the rubber hits the road and I curb my drinking.

Three Things No One Tells You About College

18 Sep

Alright incoming freshman, it’s college time. And I know what you’re thinking — you’re ready. Your scholastic aptitude is only outmatched by your alcohol tolerance, you understand that sleep is going to alternate between either a disgustingly abundant or insultingly scarce resource in the coming year and you are fully prepared to disregard everything doctors have ever said to anyone about alcohol.
