Kids these days...

"Kids these days...." I love saying things like that, it amuses me. BUT today I really do mean it!
I overheard a conversation on the tram between some female American students and it went something like this:
The other day in class I was soooooo tired, it was like crazy, I could barely keep my eyes open, it was like I wasn't even in class. I think I may have to start taking Concerta before class from now on so I can pay attention.

Mind you, a few seconds before, this same girl was talking about how she's been going out every night, drinking like there's no tomorrow, doing pub crawls, etc...

I couldn't help but think, try getting some sleep and drinking less, THEN maybe you'll be able to pay attention in class- DUH! Kids these days are so quick to pop a pill for anything instead of taking more logical steps to resolve their "problems".

haha! I love it. My secret past time is listening to English tourists/study abroad around town. You hear the craziest things.

Though to be honest, I remember my first year of college (and trips abroad-haha) and ALL I did was party with friends and drink. And I was like, why is school so hard? Then I put 2 and 2 together and drank less. It does help!

no kidding. most of their parents probably do the same thing...maybe not drinking, but using pills to stay awake but not getting enough rest...so it's learned behavior. yikes!
