... hit, it still shook your head and made you feel the effects of the shot more for about 10 seconds. We have videos of this! By Monday, after our three night bender, it was actually my birthday and I was turning 19. We were so tired and run down from our partying and lack of sleep, that we did absolutely nothing haha! I experienced my first day of feeling utterly homesick, all I wanted to do was be at the farm with a warm fire, eating dinner with my favourite people. Having ...
