HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE
I KNOW WE ARE ALL EXCITED FOR 2016 TO FINALLY BE OVER
BUT PLEASE, IF YOU ARE GOING TO A PARTY TONIGHT, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BE CAREFUL.
DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE. DO NOT LET SOMEONE WHO US DRUNK DRIVE YOU SOMEWHERE, EITHER, TAKE AN UBER, A TAXI, OR HAVE A DESIGNATED DRIVER. THE ROADS ARE ALREADY UNSAFE WITH EVERYONE SOBER. DRUNK DRIVING IS NOT WORTH IT, TRUST ME.
I just had a driving class about collisions. I actually cried in that class, I really want everyone to be safe this weekend.
Even one drink can affect you in horrible ways. Your judgement becomes worse, making it harder for you to understand what your surroundings are and how to handle them. Then your reaction time goes out and you will have a much harder time being able to get out of a bad situation. You can also get dizzy and drowsy, which are very unsafe if you end up closing your eyes for more than a few seconds.
Please, everyone be safe. I don’t want to lose any of you, even if we’ve never talked or never had an interaction. You will do great things one day, and I don’t want you to miss out on making them happen.
I don’t know what I would do if I found out one of my friends on here got into a crash (it’s not an accident if it’s preventable) because of a drunk driver.
I’ve learned so much stuff recently about driving and it is some scary shit, I just hope everyone is making good decisions tonight and throughout the rest of the weekend.
Have fun on the last night if 2016, but be safe about it!
