The Do’s and Don’ts of Partying
Bringing a jacket
Bring a fracket.
Fracket: an old jacket with not much value that you can bring to parties that you wouldn’t mind losing if you happen to leave it somewhere
Wear a flannel
Flannels are cute and light, perfect to keep you warm while walking to and from a party.
Borrow a jacket
Find a cute boy who is willing to give up his jacket for you for the walk in the cold.
Wear the right shoes
What are the right shoes you ask? Well if your shoes are white they’re not going to be that color for long. You’re shoes will get very dirty so get frat shoes, shoes you don’t mind getting ruined.
Drinking water is key. It is hard to remember to drink water throughout the night so make sure you chug water before you go to bed.
Never drink on an empty stomach. Make sure you have a nice big meal before you go out.
Jungle juice is best to avoid because it is always a variety of mixed alcohol and it is unknown to the drinker. Stick to your own drinks and knowing what you are drinking.
Watch your cup
Bring your own cup or get a cup at the party and make sure you’re the one to fill your cup or watch your cup being filled. Also make sure that you watch your drink and know what you are drinking.
Sharing is not caring
Avoid sharing drinks with people or sharing other things like juuls. This is a very easy way to spread germs and get sick.
Do not separate from your friends
Make sure to stay with your friends all night no matter where you go because you should never be alone. Then you and your friends can look out for each other to make sure everyone is safe.
Do not mix drinks
Do not mix light and dark liquor. If you start with beer, stick with beer to avoid getting sick or drinking too much.
