So, for those of you who don't personally know me, I moved from NE Ohio to Chicago to attend DePaul University there. I've been here for about a year and a half now. I didn't know anybody when I moved here except my girlfriend who also is going to DePaul. Anyways, over time we started to build up a friend base by participating in various student orgs. So we have a decent group now, not that they're the BEST friends ever or anything like that, just people to casually hang out with.
Anyways, last night 4 of them went off and got plastered at a bar, and the other two (who couldn't go to the bar since they didn't have fakes and were underage) stayed at home and got drunk by themselves. One of them's my girlfriend's roommate, so the next morning we found a 3/4's empty bottle of Smirnov Ice, a half empty bottle of some other clear liquor, and a 3/4's empty flask of some hard liquor in their freezer.
None of this is surprising, but it basically amounts to the fact that everyone i know in Chicago (sans my girlfriend and i) went out and got smashed last night. It sucks is all. I don't like to be associated with people like that, and it makes me miss my friends back home (who were clean) all the more.
So, sorry for the sob story, but i just felt like talking to some people who don't agree with drinking either. I mean, on a college campus it's hard to find people to talk to about that.

Don't apologise. I entirely understand what it's like to feel that strange sense of being an outcast, but knowing you're in the right....and it's just so frustrating that people make stupid choices.

I hope you're okay. Don't worry - there ARE people out there like you. They just happen to be spread all over the world. *waves from Australia*
