Almost on queue a little over a year from last year when this happened to me, after a super fun summer in IV, everything comes to a crashing halt in the stupidest of situations. Last night Naomi and I and all of her roommates went out, and for the first time this summer DP was insane. All of the fresmen moved in yesterday and there they were, everywhere. We went to this party at the quiet end of DP and it took us like 30 minutes to squeak ourselves through the tiny hallways to make it to the living room and it was so hot inside it felt like you were actually melting. So we decided to get some drinks since it was so hot and we had decided not to drink that night because of too much drunken craziness lately. So we get these mixed drinks to help us keep cool and we decided to go out on the balcony. We tried to get to the back balcony but there were just too many damn people, you couldnt even get off the wall, so we decided to go to the side balcony-also too crowded, we moved on to the front balcony, it was much better, nice and cool out there. So her roommate finished her drink so I gave her the rest of mine. Not two minutes later does a pack of cops show up on the street. So the girls drop their drinks and we wait for the balcony to clear out to walk down the stairs and go home. This cop walks up to us and says "Lets see some id girls I saw you with those drinks." It was such bullshit. I mean yeah it was dumb to go on the front balcony with drinks, but there were people falling on their faces down the stairs all around us and all this cop cares about is his chance to give a couple of random girls MIPs. So theyre getting MIPs while Im standing there in total shock because 2 minutes earlier and that would have been me, AGAIN! Also there was this freshman girl next to us that was getting arrested because she lied to them about something and she was bawling her eyes out because she had JUST gotten to UCSB a few hours ago and just moved into the dorms. So they were arresting her and the cop was giggling at the fact that she was crying and telling her not to cry because it wouldnt help her. Such BULLSHIT!
I know that the cops in IV make their money off of ticketing students and they could care less who they get in trouble as long as they get a bunch of people, but their priorities are SERIOUSLY skewed.
Anyways Ive had a shitty last two nights, and I start work again tommorow, which will be fun and burdensome at the same time. Anyways Im trying to plan a fun and romantic afternoon but the place I wanted to go closes earlier than I thought so Ive got some figuring out to do. And I have to go for a run or do some sort of exercise cuz yeah, and then a shower. So Im done with this rant.
