For some teenagers a typical weekend is to get drunk or high. There is FAR too many kids in my school that have gotten MIPs. To me, it's sad. What do my friends and I do on a weekend? We go out to eat, to a movie, to Red mango, shopping, sleepovers and just hanging out. But for many kids it definitely is not that. My friends and I don't see the point in drinking at this age. You are 17 or 18, why do something that could affect THE Rest of YOUR life!?? I don't think it's 'cool' to drink. I have my own opinion on drinking. I have no desire to drink. I've seen what it does to people. My step dad and mom think that someday i'll college from college drunk, but do I think i will? Nope. Why? Cause it's not for me. I have no desire to ever drink. Now am I saying that I won't ever? I don't know, i can't read the future. My aunt and uncle don't drink. And even though there are reasons, i admire them for it. Because I don't want my children to see me ever drinking. I don't want them to think it's cool and I want them to not want to drink because they don't want to. I hope that they are kids that don't drink or get high to be 'cool'.
At the end of the day, I think it's sad that people have made dumb decisions that affect their life's cause it was the cool thing to do in high school. I will never regret not drinking or even not wanting to try it.
