I’ve always found it amusing to observe the 18 year old spring chickens who are finally legal to drink publicly (not behind closed doors anymore!) and go all out with their drinking antics, just to make the most of this new exciting age of theirs. I mean, you only get to be 18 for 365 days in your life, before the novelty of being a newbie adult slowly starts to wears off as you get older.
Throwing a party is never easy; organising a guest list, food and drinks let alone a place to have can be stressful and expensive. What makes it worse is that the threat of gatecrashers. In our modern age of Facebook events and open invitations, your party has become evermore visible to the general public and the prospect of free stuff is too much for some to handle.
The week prior was filled with anticipation, anxiousness, and joy; but I was still not prepared at all for what Brisbane’s St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival had in store for me. Mother-fucking brilliance, that’s what; bands, booze, and mother-fucking brilliance.
Dancing in a club is similar to a mating dance of a majestic Peacock. If you don’t have the moves, you probably won’t get the girl. Okay, maybe that’s a little overdramatic.
Girls are more subtle about their want to pick up, but this does not mean that they are not as keen as guys. It is obvious in the way she has styled her hair, planned her outfit, put on more makeup than usual and thought carefully about how drunk she intends to get. Unfortunately, we grew up in a world that believes it is the guys that have to work for the girl, but is this still the case?
Now here is a question that can fire up a debate between both gender groups: which one generally has the crazier night out? And how crazy can both groups get? It’s a tough question, and I’m about to sort through all the anecdotal stories I’ve heard and experienced in order to logically address this argument.
It’s hard to say what clothes makes hot guys even hotter… When you’re out, it can usually come down to how they smell. You can dress a stinky guy up all you want, but he’s still going to be undesirable. However, there are a few things a guy can wear that will make them much more attractive than others…
Clubbing can be considered a sport for singles… Or the unfaithful. If we’re being honest, people going out are usually looking for other people to hook up with. The music pumping, the tiny outfits, dancing 2cms away from each other, it can really set the mood. I’m not saying this is everyone, just saying it is usually considered an integral component of the full nightclub experience.
Drunk texting… There are a number of things you should not operate under the influence. A car, a boat, a plane, heavy machinery, and a phone. It’s that time of night where tequila starts yelling “HE DON’T KNO HOW MUCH U LUV HIM GURL U GOTTA TELL HIM!” It’s also the time where vodka chimes in squealing “ooooh that bitch, how dare she steal yo’ boyfrand last Tuesday, who the hell does she think she is hmm?”
