    Not exactly.

    I'll let you in on a little secret: The only real reason to go to college is networking.

    Don't get me wrong--college is certainly not a bad idea. It definitely can't hurt, and it can be extremely helpful to some people because gathering together a bunch of people who all want to learn about the same topic tends to produce useful networking connections between those people.

    However, remember that college is not a golden ticket to the American Dream. I know lots of people with undergrad degrees who still work bullshit retail jobs because they figured that piece of paper would do all the work.

    In reality, choosing a field you want to work in, going out and finding the places where that work is done professionally, and getting involved until you know the right people and understand what to do is the way to advance.

    Just know that you're not automatically fucked without going to college, and that a college degree is only what you make of it, and nothing more.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    That's because you're in Canada. If I go north, I'm also shocked by how alchool seems to play a very central part in all social interactions. You might get something better if you go south, either southern europe or southern america (however, of course, you will get less of other stuff).

    thats well and good if your gonna live in your own world. if you do want to live in the real world (and as an Exxx, you might want to), you do need first impression thru resume credibitliy and, at the very least, college will get you that.

    Is this a feel-o-tard moment?
    you tard! thats what we got Fs for...quit already!

    im gonna guess your in first year? usually everyones trying to fit in when it starts and the most looked upon social norms are adopted by everyone. you could just wait it out for a year for the sieving to take place

    also, ill bet you anything that your not alone in these parties. theres at least one more person like you. you could take the first step and start a convo about music or your classes or something with a group...the person who looks up first or listens to everyone else before saying anything is prolly worth a shot...even if you dont make a connection right there, they'll prolly seek you out later on...if your worried about the topics of convo being boring, dont be...as a girl at a college party there are very few things you cant get away with, this is not one of them

    there, finally something to do instead of just thinking about it and taking solace is explanations...ive been in college for three years now...first year was fackin retarted. i didnt realize till second year that i was popular for all the wrong reasons (dumbing yourself down is not as rare as you might think)...of all the people i met, i still only hang out with 5-6 dudes and dudettes on a regular basis. all xNxx. we have a hell of a time drinkin, playing, talking...and stuff

    Not all ESFx get plastered when out having a good time.

    I actually dont drink that often. I went out 2 odd weeks ago and only drank Lemonade and i still had a good time.

    Don't get me wrong, place a bottle of Sambuka in front of me and i am up for a really good time, but i also sober up in 2/3 odd hours after starting that stuff. I just don't do it that often.

    I have qualms about seriously dating anyone who drinks and gets drunk and thinks nothing of it. In fact, I won't. I've always wondered if its just me.

    Not an NT, but I do relate to the OP

    I attract this lifestyle- and I think it gets very old very quickly.

    Pretty easy to get wasted and talk about it and do it again the next night.

    Seems like a pretty boring and redundant activity for these people who are supposed to be social and exciting.

    I wonder sometimes about people who live just for one drunken weekend to the next, I guess maybe there is something missing in their lives and they use alchohol to numb that reality.

    That's probably more true than most people give credit for.
