To party or to not party? As a college student, it was inevitable for me to go to at least one party. It was always talked about before coming to college that the parties in college were the most fun you will ever have!
Hearing how much my brother partied in his college years and how much he enjoyed himself, of course, I was excited to experience the hype he was talking about. I went to many parties my freshmen year and it was the most fun I have ever had in my life, to be honest. Being out with your friends and just being careless about your worries were just the best.
As time went by I started going out less and less and realized that it is not so much of my scene. I started to realize that certain people would call or text me JUST to go to a party. It became apparent to me that the party scene was not my scene with people who only wanted to party. I mean of course I want to have fun, but it became a thing where I was only hanging out with people that only wanted to party and I decided to cut down on the partying because it became unfun and was a bore. It should not be the only thing to do in college, college is more than partying.
I decided to be more open and I found new friends, friends that loved to party but also love to do work and just hang out in each other's presences. I truly think people need friends like that to be around. They made me realize that you can do more than just party and they made me love it again. They made me so open to new things I continued to go to parties but to also balance my workload and other extracurricular activities. So technically I didn't/do now party, because I finally have loved ones around me.
