Every Year of College Described by Alcoholic Beverages
Ah, freshman year of college. Where you’re now the “fresh meat,” so the beer (usually) flows freely and mistakes are made…a time that can only be described as the Bud Lite phase; a refreshing start in your life. Everything is brand new and you’re filled with all kinds of emotions, like love, joy, homesickness, stress, among many others. You don’t yet know how to handle these emotions, so of course, they all come up at once. Psh, lightweight.
Now that you’re in your second year, you can handle those emotions, and those drinks, a little better since you have some experience. You’re slowly making your way through your second year and it’s pretty much the same, you think to yourself. Just a small twist separates you from the new freshman, this year is that of a Bud Lite Lime: almost the same, except you’re the second youngest.
You’re a junior! The finish line is approaching and you’ve really moved up the ladder since your freshman year. You want something a little more fancy, a little more sophisticated. This year is moscato. You’re somewhere between wanting everything to be done for you & finally making the leap to adulthood. A proper adult wine, but a cheap price tag. Just the thing for you!
Congratulations, grad! That phrase will be delivered to you time and time again after this year is over. But, to start off your adulating phase right, you want something even fancier! This year is a Jack and Coke: bittersweet, and just about as adult-y as a 22 year old can get.
