a declaration

I am so over house parties.

This weekend marked my first foray into the world of bars, beer pitchers, and random men spending money on you since you look nice. It was a wonderful change of pace from basement parties where your shoes get ruined because of some mysterious liquid that has coated the ground (really – why is the floor always soaked? Beer spills? Melting ice sculptures? Vomit? *shudder shudder shudder GROSS*) where boys who are barely old enough to shave take any opportunity to grind up on you while you awkwardly search for a good enough reason to ditch him.

I still love little gatherings with my good friends, pregaming with a bottle of cheap wine, winning a few games of beer pong, but I feel like I’m ready to go to the next level of adulthood. And while the state doesn’t quite agree with my level of maturity, I’m just over 3 months away from being totally legit so I don’t think it’s all that bad.

Where do you stand on this kind of socializing? Are you a PJ, popcorn, and a Gossip Girl marathon on a Friday night kind of girl? Keg stand queen? Designated Driver? Bar tender? Homework doer?

    I’m with you on the frat party hating…I’ve always wondered why the floors are so gross, too :/

    I’m a “let’s go clubbing and have fun but then actually come home sober at 1 to get a good night’s sleep” kind of girl. Try as I might to be a party animal, I’m a little old grandma at heart. Have a great week!

    ahhh house parties. i think i’ve come to realize that i am NOT a party girl. too bad i’m still in college, so i often go just for the sake of going, but they are really not my scene. esp when girls are flopping around sayin “omg i am soooo drnk” and guys are acting like raging idiots. just sayin! i’m more of a popcorn and pj girl i guess :)

    I’m both kinds of girls. When I’m in the town that I’m currently in, I’m a HUGE stay in and watch movies girl. I hate the house parties here and prefer my own/my family’s company to that of the redneck, get drunk people here. If I do go to a party than I’m usually the DD.

    When I visit the city? I can be a little wild child. =) I can’t WAIT to go clubbing, only 5 months until I’m 19!!

    I can’t do parties or drinking, it’s just not me, and I don’t enjoy myself at all. I’m more of a PJ, popcorn, and a Gossip Girl marathon on a Friday night kind of girl, as you said.

    HA, I used to obsessively check The Cobra Snake during freshman year! My life is so different now… I don’t enjoy going to parties as much, and prefer to stay inside and be a homebody. Things could change again, and obviously one must balance a home and social (and work) life, but I like being cozy!
