People flocked to his parties because they were not only lavish, but flowing with free liquor. Nick also mentions that in one section that he is drunk for the first time in years, likely because he didn’t have easy access to liquor. Those are just some of the surface things. One could make a case that the whole attitude of the book was influenced by the Prohibition. The citizens seem free to do whatever they want, in that they throw ridiculous parties and throw many fits and tantrums that can turn violent.
Since the drinking age has been twenty-one it has not stopped underage teens for drinking and has actually caused more problems. Binge drinking has especially been caught in college. With the mix of ages ranging anywhere from around 17-24 years old it’s easy for teens to fall under peer pressure. The opposing side to this argument says however that lowering the drinking age would be...”Pushing the drinking problem further down to 16-and 17-year olds.” However there is another problem with the law of the drinking age being
The narrator feels as if working and being productive will help her health, “personally, I disagree with their ideas. Personally, I believe that congenial work, with excitement and change, would do me some good” (Stetson 648) The narrator feels held back from work and everything in general.

This essay serves a convincing and powerful tone about how “colleges have a serious problem with alcohol abuse among students, and it is not getting any better” (336). It mentions how colleges are oblivious to this issue, and the problem will be solved over time, which is not true because evidence shows that students have carried their drinking issues throughout their lives. This essay lists steps about how this problem can be prevented in college campuses, and it does include statistics, but it relies on persuasive strategies to convince the audience that steps need to be taken to reduce the large amount of binge drinking in colleges, especially with students underage. The essay also uses convincing statements such as “Colleges cannot claim to create a supportive learning environment where they support such behavior” (338) and includes repetition of words like “must” to show that action needs to be done about this problem that continues to happen every year. Therefore, to prevent this conflict, the essay offers a solution of recommending a weekend tour so students can see the shame on students’ face after a night of drinking, and colleges also need to acknowledge the dangers of alcohol consumption.
Though the stories appeared to be meaningless, humorous, comic and absurd, they all seemed to have a relevant meaning behind them and had a number of themes that were recurring. All the stories appeared to be dangerous, reckless and irresponsible, yet they were greeted with warm , affirmative and collegiate laughter. All the stories told by the students consisted of extreme levels of alcohol consumption with the main character being extremely drunk or intoxicated, affirming that the idea of ‘drinking’ and the culture of intoxication has been taken of granted by the young people. (Hackley, C., Bengry-Howell, A., Griffin, C., Mistral, W., Szmigin, I. and Hackley, R. A.,
Especially college students with multiple papers being due, team projects, finals coming up, and their social life students stress increases at an all time high. It is essential because high levels of stress can lead to other health issues to arise like high blood pressure, anxiety, and etc. Stress is something that affects everybody, so finding a solution to reduce stress is crucial. Research conducted previously has mostly concentrated on classical, popular, heavy metal music, tested both genders, but having a dominant gender in the studies; on the other hand, jazz music has only been studied partially. I hypothesize that jazz music will have a moderate positive effect on college students stress.
Lindo Jong develops as a person when she decides to use her wit to escape her unpleasant marriage. For a while, Lindo almost loses herself by merely accepting the patriarchal ideals pushed onto her because she does not want to disgrace her family (Tan 54). Lindo blindly obliges to her family and the Huang’s wishes by being an obedient wife, but that made the “Huangs almost [wash] their thinking into [her] skin” (56) thus making her think in a certain way that hinders her own opinions and voice. Losing oneself is equivalent to having no personality because personality requires having thoughts that are unique to the individual, and when their unique thoughts are manipulated by someone else, the individual loses their individuality. However, Lindo eventually gains back her individuality by devising a complicated plan that she considers “really quite simple” that

Cravings for a drink affects mood or concentration levels Feeling distracted and craving alcohol is a sign that your body is becoming dependent on alcohol and now needs it to stave off physical ‘withdrawal’ symptoms. 3. ‘Self-medicating’ with drink because of problems at home, social or work life Using alcohol as a coping mechanism can lead to a person drinking more and more because it only offers temporary relief.

It increases risks for “addiction”, “memory loss”, “suicide” and “depression”. This is the number 1 Con on procon.org. Lowering the drinking age will increase traffic fatalities more than they already are. In the New York Times Tara Watson say traffic fatalities will become more frequent.
