21 Tips For People Who Don’t Drink

A really very good set of advice for those who don’t drink or those who have met new people who don’t drink.

I don’t and never have drank. Even though I have clear reasons in my mind, it is still a very daunting thing to have to go to university as I am and try and hold back the whole drinking ‘scene’.

Thought Catalog

1. It’s okay to drink.

2. It’s okay not to drink.

3. Know why you’re saying no. My sophomore year, I had an existential alcohol crisis. I was invited to a New Year’s party with good friends (who were also seasoned drinkers) and for the first time in my life I seriously considered drinking. Not just drinking, though. I arranged a pre-drinking drinking training with my best friend from home. She would obtain the drinks, I would drink them, and then I would wait. For what? Who knows? But I would drink and then I would be ready. (I may have been a novice drinker but I was an advanced-level over-thinker.) Somewhere in the middle of the planning, my best friend began asking me questions, specifically Why? Why now? Why not before?

Moving Out/In Day

So the day has finally arrived in which I am moving out of my home of 18 years and almost 4 months and into my University Accommodation.

It feels quite weird to be packing up all of ones worldly possessions to either go into the loft or move with me.

As such, posts on here will probably become spread a little thin over the next couple of weeks as I settle into the Law Course, but I have a few reviews and brief histories ready in preparation.

Its a good thing I’m not superstitious; moving out on Friday the 13th may be a scary thing!

A day trip to Lancaster (University)

Today, me and about 25 other history students went on a trip to Lancaster University to use their fantastic library in order to do research from Undergraduate level textbooks for our Historical Enquiry. 

Considering the University was about 1 and a half hours away, it was a bit of a trek but was whittled away playing a History themed game of 20 questions – I was Pope Urban 3rd and Cleopatra of Egypt, others ranged from Madam Curie to Chairmen Mao. 

Just in case you were wondering – my enquiry is based on the British Raj during the period 1847 to 1947. Quite an interesting topic. But then again, stamp ‘British Empire’ on it and chances are I’ll find it at least vaguely interesting. 

Must just say, Lancaster was very accommodating for us – fantastic set of librarians and the library was lovely. Got down a bunch of titles which I’m going to look into further.
And they have a Greggs on site.
ON SITE.

Doesn’t it just boggle the mind.
