Did you have any other reasons?
Well I guess that’s about it for underage drinking. But, I guess for drinking in general, it can cause one to do really stupid things.
That’s totally true. So are you against all drinking?
As I said earlier, I don’t think that there is anything wrong with it. I think, as with most things, moderation is the key, unless you’re driving. Drinking and driving is never ok.
I think most people can agree with that. It’s ok to put your own life in danger because, after all, you’re the one making the bad decision but when it comes to other peoples’ lives, it’s not ok.
I couldn’t agree more.
Continued here. Back to the beginning.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be someone other than who you are? I used to think about this a lot as a child. Not because I didn’t like who I was, I was just confused how there were other people with other lives and plans out there. I also wondered what it would be like being someone else and seeing me from someone else’s eyes.
There are still somedays that I do wake up and wish I were someone else. Someone who didn’t have to deal with the problems that I am faced with daily. I think, though, that I’m not alone in this thought. Someone Else by The Jellyrox is about this exact feeling. Sometimes we all just get into situations that make us dread being who we are and having to face what we face. Sometimes that is our fault like when we say something that we shouldn’t have but other times it’s due to things outside of our control like others’ expectations of us.
I really like this song because it hits on some important points. One point is that we all sometimes feel unhappy with who we are. It tells us that we are not alone, that there are other people out there that feel unhappy in their situations just like we do. Another point it hits on is that while we can always wish we were someone else, we need to get into the mindset that we are lucky that we are where we are. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. The song encourages us to be happy with who we are. Don’t waste your life wishing you were someone else and just be happy with you. “Only you can be the you you were made to be.”
