My drinking philosophy: drinking is cyclical. If you keep drinking, you'll get sober.
Are you drunk? Know what the solution is--drink more.
I had a great time drinking with a group of people I've never had the pleasure of partying with before. It was a great prequel to finals and deadline. I also had some great conversations as I was sobering up that I hope were beneficial for everyone involved. I know I feel better having heard many sides.
I'm glad I went to the party tonight. It will be my saving grace. I'll need to go more often after this.
