I wanted to start out by saying that I'm sorry for all of the misconceptions and labeling that you are subjected to. In society and at school, we're always hearing the crazy stories about the guy who passed out in the street or the girl that danced on the table and constantly hear the judgment in people's voices when they say, "that girl parties all the time." So here I am, an introvert that doesn't particularly enjoy going out, writing this letter to you. Why? Well, I think you deserve a lot more credit than you get.
I'm not kidding when I say that it's impressive with how often you go out. It takes so much time and effort to dress up and do makeup and hair. That alone exhausts me. Then, at an ungodly hour of the night (the time that I am going to bed), you are just leaving the dorm to begin the festivities. You walk all the way across campus in 4-inch heels and you spend time socializing with all kinds of people. I always get nervous talking to new people and worry about what I should say, but the effortless way you float around people and the bold ways in which you introduce yourself in confidence to new guys will never cease to amaze me.
On top of all the social skills that you acquire and use, the mere effort of balancing school and the party life is exhausting. It's unbelievable how you manage to get good grades and go to school when you got home at 2 a.m. after a long night. I can barely handle school alone without the late nights out.
So, to the partiers, I want you to know that I am not judging you, but that your lifestyle actually impresses me and that I wish that I had the type of energy and motivation to live like you. I want to apologize for the people who call you "lazy" or "slackers" because you work harder than they realize.
Keep being you and party on friends!
