Your Martin Luther King Jr. weekend may have been fun, maybe you drank a lot, maybe you partied, maybe you just enjoyed the time off of school and/or work. But no way was it as wild as 21 year old Megan Hinds of Indiana University’s MLK jr. day. The co-ed was on a weekend-long drinking bender (we’ve all been there) and decided it would be a good idea to steal food from sandwich chain ‘Jimmy Johns’, when the cops were called she ended up hitting one in the drunken struggle that proceeded and now faces a felony battery charge. According to the police statement via IDS News: “At about 6:30 p.m. officers responded to a call from the sandwich shop at 430 E.

We’ve all had those mornings when we’ve woken up and been too drunk to remember what happened the night before, yikes.

Speaking from experience, I met tons of people during my first tailgate and I can almost guarantee you that each one fit one of these descriptions: 18) The Governor: This is the guy wearing a suit and tie in the sweltering heat, and yes, he’s also probably in Student Government. 17) Miss Sweetheart: THAT girl that everyone wishes to be, and she really is genuinely sweet. Almost too sweet. She’s probably from Mississippi or Alabama because that Southern charm is just so obvious. 16) Stereotypical White Girl: You know. The girl with the North Face backpack and monogrammed water bottle. She’s most likely wearing Nike sneaks and leggings with her spirit wear.
It’s completely normal to drink in college and most people drink at least once every weekend, if not every day of the weekend. Everybody always says you can’t be considered an alcoholic while in college because it’s just apart of the lifestyle, but here are signs that many of us can relate to that may show you’re on your way to becoming an alcoholic. All you ever think about is drinking on the weekend. You don’t even need there to be any kind of party, you’re perfectly content with drinking on your own. Hard liquor starts to sound extremely appetizing, even by itself. You just want everything and anything to give you a buzz. You begin to pour little splashes of alcohol into your morning coffee.

But i’m not done with my drink. 15. Do you think this cop could tell i’m drunk? 14. Where do I hide? 13.
