All I did during college was study and work, and the cost of mine was not as obscene as it is now. I could have never done that, I guess I was just too responsible I don't drink anyway and I didn't back then either.
I guess if parents are paying for it, but that wasn't the case for me or my sibs or a lot of my friends. But, I didn't get drunk or party that hard. However, in the spirit of the article, the opportunities were certainly there if I'd wanted to! I never felt left out even when I abstained from the party.

Ya, there's certainly an element of that... I also mean that, only after the death has occurred, looking back at that day. It could've been the most insignificant moment... It's hard to explain... Almost like looking into their eyes in the photo and knowing that they had no idea when it was taken, that picture would be the one used beside their casket. But if you were to watch a movie of their life after the fact, only then would it be a very poignant moment. And then trying to project that onto your own life. It's weird, I know

When I was 17 I found out I was showing early signs of osteopenia and that since I was 13 I had actually lost an inch of height (I have gained half an inch back with physical therapy). I found out about my joint problems and chronic joint pain. Got a formal diagnosis for my insomnia. Found out that I might need INVASIVE reconstructive surgery on a joint within the next 10 years, etc.

3+ years later I've managed to do things to make myself healthier but I'm still in pain.
