Can't spend that much!!! Even if I wanted and tried I think I could... Crazy stuff.
My advice: try to enjoy your last time at home, because if you live quite far won't see that people for a long time (as in my case) and don't try to take too much luggage with you. Avoid taking unnecessary items with you.

Then don't go to Germany - MOONSHINE BABY - MOONSHINE!!! That stuff rocks!!
And do not try Jedi's either - if you are a lightweight - the consequences will be dire!!
I went to Koln in October for a german exchange trip. Best holiday ever, but on the first night I had three medium Kolsch (about a pint and a half-ish) and threw it up. It went to my head a LOT quicker than I expected.
After that night though I was fine! Managed to drink equivalents of 4-5 pints through a night.
I'll be going to Hallam, but I have no idea where I will be living. If I am allowed to set up a still, then I am very happy, though I want my liver in one piece by the time I finish uni!!
My options so far for living are:
1 - Halls
2 - Private Sector
3 - In an RV (Winnebago)!!
4 - A FedEx shipping crate!!!!
5 - Mental home, but I don't really want to go back there! Staff were nice, so the food was nice!!!

Practise makes perfect!
Haha yeah. I used to be pretty average, but about two years ago I drank a whole half-bottle of straight bacardi in about 15 minutes, and I haven't been able to take alcohol as well since (understandably).
It does also depend on the situation. At events such as formals I've been known to drink way over my usual amount and still be relatively stable, while at some intimate parties i've had hardly anything and i'm wasted. It also depends whether I'm drinking pints or bottles. (once had seven bottles in a club, and the next week had two pints and felt just as merry).
That sounds kinda weird but I'm led to believe that a relatively large percentage (about 40%) of drunkness is psychological, or something like that, so it would make sense, spesh the pints thing. (Anyone who dared to watch Big Brother this year will get that, when Kinga thought she was wasted but Big Brother didn't tell the house the wine and beer that night was non-alcoholic)
