    Yes, way greater!
    Being nearly 22 and having a very strong personality/opinion and everything, I never (or nearly ever) feel peer pressured at all, in France... but here, it's incredible. If I feel this way, I can barely imagine how 18 year old freshmen must feel like. Alcohol plays a huge role in student's weekends in France, but it seems that, in the US, drinking on the weekend is a mandatory activity for all students. This is really too bad, especially considering that, not only do students drink often... they also drink a lot. People would never get that wasted in France.

    Its interesting to hear the contrast between the two, i am getting a very different impression of France. I have to say England seems more similar to the ammount and regularity of consumption found in America.

    I have a friend who lived for more than 5 years in Edinburgh during his high school period, he says kids over there are really crazy about alcoholic drinks. Every weekend binge drinking, compared to here it's really out of control. I don't know if it's like that in England Ed, but I can imagine.
    I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

    My sister is 23, and is just now learning how to function without having to binge drink all the time. It's crazy.


    I hate that every time it gets a little nice outside, we get snow the next day.

    I hate getting kicked in the balls at shows

    I also hate living in an apartment building where the superintendent believes it is okay to shut my water off without warning pretty much every week.

    Haha, that is a lesson I learned the hard way last week! I'll know to pay more attention from now on!

    Haha, it wasn't intentional, the guy was dancing and I happened to be standing there, it was just an unfortunate accident. He apologized afterwards.

    I don't know, maintenance I think? I just can't understand why they need to do maintenance that involves shutting off the water in a 20 story apartment building for 8 hours, every 1 or 2 weeks.

    Husband lost his job. But there is a plus side
    • severance pay
    • advance notice
    • forcing us to get out of this house
    • possible move to Texas or New York
