Kimberly and I got to Stanford around 9:30 p.m. last night. My mom called, and I told her we were staying the night with Ben before driving down this morning. She said, "Oh, so you guys are going to go to bed soon because you'll be getting up early, right?"
What we did instead was this thing called a Progressive. Called such because as you progress from one location to the next (drinking themed drinks at each place), you become progressively drunker. Obviously.
I love how at Stanford you can actually carry open containers of alcohol around campus, and drink in the dorms. Cal housing is not actually on campus, but in the actual city of Berkeley, so you can get arrested for that. Not to mention the dorms are very strict about alcohol; you're supposed to get kicked out if you even have any in your room. So plus one to Stanford for their chill alcohol policy. Also, people at Stanford are actually classy and make real mixed drinks, instead of just taking shots as we Cal kids do. So another point to them for raising the bar on excessive alcohol consumption.
Speaking of excessive alcohol consumption, it makes you do silly things. Like make out with a really cute guy at 12:40 a.m., May 1st when he just broke up with his girlfriend on April 30th. Although honestly, that's his problem to deal with, not mine. Even though my friends were making contingency plans in case I went home with him, I managed to prove that even Cal students can be classy sometimes and I went back to Ben's dorm.
Also, as I mentioned, today is May 1st! So, in honor of that, NSFW!
