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.
Well well well, here is a question that can fire up a hell of a debate. Can people in relationships still go out clubbing, or do they have to avoid the party atmosphere now that they’re in a relationship?
Yes, we have all been there. A night out is something we all look forward at the end of the week, but more often than not, it’s a night that we don’t always remember. Here are the top 5 ways to help fill in the blank spaces from a wicked night out.
Most of us can relate to that feeling of being drunk; that giddy intoxication that starts to lower our inhibitions and self-control as we stumble around either laughing our heads off or sobbing our hearts out (or both!). Most of us can literally feel the fuzziness wrapping our brains in cotton wool as the alcohol seeps into our bloodstream and starts to work its magic, bringing out both the best and worst in us depending on our moods and personalities.
Pre drinking, or ‘pre gaming’, before a night out on the town has been around since the dawn of time. It’s the fine line between a good and a terrible night out. To make sure everyone has a responsible time, here is a list of the pros and cons of pre drinking.
So, you’ve just turned 18 and have never been clubbing before, and the Melbourne nightlife scene is like a whole new exciting world that you are both excited and anxious to experience. Or maybe you’re older and just haven’t really given the clubbing scene a shot, because you felt like it wasn’t your thing or you just couldn’t make time for clubbing amongst your hectic schedule.
I’m sure that most of us know one or two people who don’t like to drink and/or dance at nightclubs. I mean, yes there are certain times when we all have to restrain ourselves from drinking because either we’re the designated driver for the night or we’re having an early one at work the next morning and don’t want to stumble there with a killer hangover.
We all cop those dreary sort of days when we’re feeling unmotivated and way too tired to dress up, let alone actually leave the house to go out to a nightclub or bar. Sometimes you end up giving in to your exhaustion, and decide to embrace having a lazy night in with junk food and a movie. But other times, you feel like you have to go out.
Story of every clubber’s life: having to come up with a way to nicely let down that guy who’s damn persistent. I like to call them ‘stage five clingers’, and I believe that should become an actual dictionary term because some people can be overly obsessive. Stage five clingers will usually shower you with ridiculous pick-up lines and wreak of desperation, and their clinginess knows no bounds.
If you are attempting to plan a hen’s night, here is one important tip: IT IS NOT LIKE THE MOVIES! You will not be kidnapping the bride and taking her to a strip show. Sorry to disappoint you.
