You are well aware that there is more to life than just having fun, but no one can blame you if you just keep on riding the wave of good times you've been enjoying. There will be plenty of time later for work and responsibilities. Right now, you need to take advantage of all the delightful opportunities that are coming your way. Leisure time is not wasted time. Relaxation can give you energy that will come in handy later.
