We all partied hard, had a blast, got drunk, splurged on things like anything and slept in a friend’s house who is not really a friend. He is a friend’s friend or even worse, you can’t even remember who that kind soul was who let you stay at his place last night because you were too drunk to drive.

  Have you ever been in a place where you cannot relate to anything or anyone? Not just your language, your mannerisms, your belief, but even your color makes you feel uncomfortable.
