I set out on my own and went away to college. I thought I was responsible and wise. I was wrong. That first year away from any parental guidance was pure indulgence. At first I put all my efforts into partying at every fraternity and sorority party. It was a whirlwind of activity which lead to copious amounts of alcohol consumption. Every Thursday through Sunday, parties and clammy, perspiring bodies undulating, doused in obscenity and promiscuity. Gambling was another obsessive pastime. The lesson in this- beware of lust, gluttony and greed- they all lead to a degenerate form of failure.
