Gotta love college.

Already so I'm a freshman at college and it's been a blast so far. I decided to have a few friends up this weekend and overall it went pretty good. At least for them..
HUGE EDITED DETAIL: I decided to break my iPhone. For those who are familiar with iPhones, they have a black button on top. As I woke up for class, my phone slid off the side of my bed and hit the floor. The black button was completely pushed into the phone which resulted in it turning off and on, off and on..etc. So after my class, I had to go pick up a new iPhone. It sucked because I had to spend $200 when I didn't really want too, but now I have the 3G compared to the original $400 2G I bought way back then.
We are all 18, except for me and my twin who are 19 and they had never been to the casino before (Soaring Eagle Indian Casino). I started them off there after I let them pregame a little (I DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE). I was the only one who lost all of the money I brought, ($60, could be worse) while all my friends decided to win $100+. We all leave, and I need money plus the fact that we are starving. We order $21 worth of food on the dollar menu which worked out to be awesome since I couldn't pay for a dime. Not really.
Luckily I find a Fifth Third ATM and *try* to withdraw money. Now normally I like to keep a lot of cash on me for events like this but I was wrong this time. Since I spent everything, I needed to make a withdrawal. Little did I know, my PIN changed and four tries later, the machine simply states, "You have exceeded your amount of tries, taking your card for security reasons." <-- Something along those lines. While my 4 drunk friends are loving every minute of this, I'm just stunned. We go back to my dorm and I just decide to drink the night away and show them around town.
Luckily, we went snowboarding the next morning! Hungover as they come, I still looked like a badass. With my friends aviators and my cat hat (cat on red hat with a ball on top). I looked like a player. To only remember that throughout the hour and thirty minute drive to the mountain, I forgot my credit card.
F*ck my life right? Good thing my friends had some extra cash.
So a fun weekend it was suppose to be, I was royally screwed financially wise and the bank isn't open until Monday in which I have class alllllll day.
Now the story may not be too bad, but if you're like me, money is a security to me. And I HATE using my credit card.
So the moral is, never gamble alllll your money away. And always remember your PIN. Because the machine can and will take away your debit card.
