College is generally a good time in life to test yourself in new ways. It’s as if you are finding your adult “legs” to stand on, which usually involves some running and jumping, and occasionally tripping and falling. Taking risks is a great way to learn things and have fun, but don’t forget to be smart and sensible. I’m not saying you need to spoil anyone’s fun, especially not your own. But doing something crazy without at least considering safety issues is pretty stupid and can create large amounts of unhappiness. At the same time, if you are afraid to take any chances and get out of your comfort zone a little bit, you could miss out on some once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. So go for it! But don't forget to buckle your seatbelt.
