It was mid season, I had just made section time in the 100 backstroke a week ago. I was on my way to being top four on the Sartell swim team, and making the state team.

PART A: LAWS REGARDING UNDERAGE DRINKING It is against the law for an underage person to buy alcohol in all states and territories in Australia. It is also against the law for anyone to sell alcohol to a person under the age of 18.

I remember old times as I sit back and stare out the window on a rainy Sunday afternoon. It has been about two years since the incident occurred. The thought of how you can lose someone 's trust in one second is terrifying. It takes a long time to gain someone 's trust again after it is broken. With this in mind, I learned that my actions can affect others, but on this day I also learned that trying to fit in is not always the best thing to do.
The Higher Education of Drinking College is a place for higher learning. It is a time when young adults are exploring themselves as individuals, expanding not only their academic horizons but for many, it’s their first time being on their own socially.

Because we were senseless and easily influenced, we decided to try some to fit in.
