Overheard: Two Feet To My Left

(Guy, two girls, at dining hall breakfast.) Guy: You girls don't need your buns toasted, do you? Girl 1: Heh-heh-heh-heh-heh. Girl 2: Heh heh. No. Guy: I was talking about the hot dog buns

Halloween: Then and Now

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. I could never understand what wasn’t to like. All the store windows are covered in cotton cobwebs and fake skeletons, people hand you free candy everywhere you go and you can dress up as absolutely anything and walk around in public without being judged. Did I mention the free candy?

We’ve All Been There: One Shot Too Many

You start off with a few rum and Diets at home before heading to the house party. You couldn’t possibly walk in sober and who knows how much access you’ll have to booze once you get inside? You're sipping on your last pre-drink when your friends are finally ready to go, so you chug it and follow them out.

How Many Drinks Can You Handle?

How many times have you been hunched over a toilet bowl/garbage can/bush after a night of drinking, promising God that if he lets you live through the night you will never drink again? Obviously, if it's more than once, you are a big fat liar. But that's not the point.

We’ve All Been There: Day Drinking

You’ve got a big day planned: early morning breakfast, football pre-party, football game, then out on the town with your homies. 18 hours of boozing? Psssssh. It may sound like a lot, but you’ve been training for a day like this since you stepped foot on campus.

Taking Shots: Documenting The Aftermath

We've all been there: that rowdy Friday/Saturday/Tuesday night when the liquor bottles come out and the shots glasses clink. All those nights we'd like to forget and we hope no one else remembers either. All the shots that didn't go down too well - or missed our mouths completely.

Turn Up The Fun On Your Drinking

Personally, I think a good night of irresponsible drinking and partying is sometimes necessary. And by "sometimes," I mean "college." While you might regret it the next morning when you can't roll over out of fear you will barf on that not-so-hot lad lying next to you, it's always fun.

Have Your Cake and Drink It, Too!

My biggest issue with drinking is not the hangover the next morning or my desire to sing REALLY loudly at the bar, but the fact that I'm taking in all those calories for something that doesn't taste good. I'm talking to you, Tequila!

Everything I Need to Know I Learned My Freshman Year

Now that I’m halfway done with my college career, I anticipate all the bright eyed and bushy tailed freshmen about to invade the dorms and use fake-id’s at all my favorite bars. Putting myself in their shoes, I wish that someone had been there to give me advice for my college career (all I got was my Mom telling me not to hook up with any fraternity boys until Spring semester).

Overheard: Balmy Eighties

Girl 1: It's not like that. If you put anything in a crust, it's a pie. That's a pie. Girl 2: What about cheesecake? Cheesecake has a crust. Girl 1: No it doesn't. Girl 2: Have you ever had cheesecake? Have you even seen a cheesecake? This is a problem, like, for us. For you and me.

Alcoholic Bulimia and the Girls Who Pull the Trigger

I remember those naive high school days when puking during a rager meant that a) you couldn't control your liquor and b) the party was over, for you. That's why I was shocked one night during my freshman year of college, when my friend came back from the bathroom and proudly announced, "Oh, man, I just puked my brains out!"

We’ve All Been There: Flirting for Drinks

Like every Thursday night (or Monday…or Tuesday…or any day, really), you finish your reading for the night, eat a little dinner and start the pre-party for another night at the bar. You mix a few drinks before you head out in attempts to get a good buzz going.

Friday Night Mocktails: Made me Miss my Cocktails

So the time had come again at Syracuse for Alcohol Awareness Week. Basically this is a week where students, okay...
