Starting Line: Shots, Shots, Shots… or Not?

In the past year, I passed through the rookie stage of drinking. You know, getting over the fact that drinking isn’t such a big deal after all (I know some may beg to differ, which I totally respect, but step off for a sec, darlings) and then advancing into classic teen movie, drink up mode.

The Starting Line: Should You Facebook-Stalk Your New Roommate?

So on behalf of all my soon-to-be college freshmen out there, I can vouch that I have been a Facebook stalking maniac lately. Even more so than when I decide that I like a guy--and it's pretty unhealthy then. So what's the source of all this wall-post-analyzing, photo-clicking frenzy? I just received a letter telling me who my 3 randomly selected suitemates are for the upcoming school year.
