As I look back on my insanely wild year (while bored at home wishing I was in London), I attempted to calculate how many liters of alcohol I consumed from the beginning of September to end of April. Needless to say, it was quite a difficult task and I didn’t get a precise answer. A twenty-sixer normally lasted me one to two weeks, depending how many nights I went out each week. That’s an estimated total of sixteen to thirty-two twenty-sixer’s (but probably more). I am not even going to attempt to calculate how many shots I threw back on Richmond Row. Let’s be real, it’s not like I would remember anyways. But hey, you can’t say your university career was successful without a little damage done to your liver, right? My plan: Go even harder next year.
Anyways, if you students spend a large portion of your time under the influence (Ed. Not that we’re encouraging it), have you ever given any thought to who you are when you are drunk? Obviously you’re the same person, but some people definitely gain a reputation when intoxicated. Some bad, some good, some absolutely hilarious and, in extreme cases, you would rather just pretend you don’t know the extremely messy girl hanging off your arm, who is actually your best friend.
There are six different kinds of drunks, in which you can calculate using the chart below.
Happy Drunk – I choose to surround myself with rock stars such like these people. You have no responsibility for them, you have the possibility of taking back numerous shots together, and furthermore, you’re guaranteed to have an unreal time.
Sleepy Drunk – Someone who is classified as a sleepy drunk will normally be slurring their words, shutting their eyes and having difficulty walking. These winners only consume alcohol through shots and/or chugging, and will already be drunk twenty minutes into the pre. I believe it is safe to say we’ve all been there and done that.
Hungry Drunk – Notice how food always tastes so much better when you’re drunk? My point exactly. I’d stick close to these lovely folks; they will probably take you out to a little Richmond Row post bar treat. I’m convinced that eating before bed soaks up the alcohol in your body, and will leave you less hung over in the morning.
Sad Drunk – Or as I’d like to call it, The Debbie Downer. I personally choose to steer clear of these depressing individuals. They simply ruin my night. These are the one’s that decide to bring their personal problems out with them. Question: why even come out? Go home. No offense.
Angry Drunk – Some people tend to get really bad tempers while under the influence. Sometimes there is absolutely no reason for it, other times, a recent break up or unnecessary drama could be the cause. My suggestion? Avoid, avoid, avoid. These hot heads tend to look for conflict and start problems. You don’t want a hole punched in your living room wall, do you?
Not Drunk – There are some people I know who can go out with a massive group of intoxicated friends and have a great time. If you’re one of these individuals, my props go out to you.
