How I Feel About Partying

I did something weird last weekend.

There was a party downtown on Friday night so some friends and I decided to go. I was feeling uneasy about the situation considering it was the kind of party where all of the people there are those people who you know because you stalk them on Facebook but you've never actually met (please tell me I'm not alone and you all know what I'm talking about...). Honestly, I still have no idea why I actually went.

So basically I went to this party and I was kind of excited because I straightened my hair and I was going to this cool person party and I was with my friends, etc. I got to the party (which ended up being at some event place in an ally... quite interesting I must say) and long story short, everyone was drunk. This party was completely out of control. I don't know if I should be putting this on the internet (my bet is probably not), but I feel like it's a commonly known fact that teenagers will do what they will, and people at this party were definitely doing something alright.

So I'm at this party and my friends and I are kind of huddled up like what is going on this is insane and then finally we decide we have two options: have fun or leave. Obviously I want to have fun. We danced and talked to people we'd heard of but never met, took embarrassing selfies, and had quite a bit of fun.

What I learned on Friday night is that you do not need to be drunk to have a good time. Honestly, it's better when you're not because then you can remember what actually happened and you can have the memories rather than forgetting about everything. I love to have a good time, don't get me wrong, and I can't promise I won't do something crazy every once in a while, but sometimes you've got to je ne sais quoi and have a good time. 



  1. Ah! I normally don't comment on blog posts, but this is such an honest post, I love it! I didn't really drink much in high school, so when I got to college I was definitely drinking a lot more! But sometimes, when you go out, it's nice to be sober so that you can remember the experiences you have with your friends! Plus, it's always hilarious to see what people do when they have a bit too much alc.

    Ps. I know what you're talking about with the Facebook stalking thing. LOL. It happens ALL THE TIME in college.

  2. Hah! Fran I love this post and the message that goes along with it!
    And no worries, I'm also totally guilty of fb stalking (I could be a professional).

  3. This is a good taste of what college is like! I've learned the same thing this past school year. You don't need to drink to have fun. I barely went out in high school, so when I went to college, I did go a little crazy but I'm proud of you for still having fun without drinking! Quite admirable of you.


  4. Oh my god, I totally get you with the FB stalking thing! So true! It's funny, I was just having a conversation with my friends on how partying doesn't mean you don't go because everyone's drinking...but just control yourself! I love your take on this, so honest!

  5. Love this post. Being a highschooler myself I find it hard to find a balance of having fun and being out of control. There are plenty of times where I've had the chance to go to parties but turned them down because I felt uncomfortable with the idea of getting drunk/doing drugs, not that I have a problem with people who do those things, it's just not for me. I love the fact that you guys stayed and had a fun time without drinking, I think that's a really great idea and will definitley consider doing it in the future as opposed to just flat out not going.

  6. First, I completely know what you mean about the stalking thing. :) Also, I think this is a great post and so real. Basically everybody in my grade drinks, and I am only a Freshman! My friends and I just think thats crazy, and completely agree that life is more fun when you can remember what you did.
