It makes me sad when WordPress tells me that my last post was “A While Ago.” But, in my defense, I’ve had a lot going on. I had midterms (some of which I actually had to study for! Do you know how tiring that is? I just figured that out.); I had Spring Break (nothing exciting happened. My quest for Blue Bell was foiled.); and now I’ve either got a paper or an exam every week from now until finals. Still, I’ll try and find something to write about.
But, wait! I have had new life developments! I did do something fairly exciting last weekend! First things first, I was officially accepted to study abroad at the University of Sussex next fall. I have already begun compiling a list of things I want to do once in England. It will be epic (and I do not use that word lightly).
In order to bring some spontaneity and craziness to my life, I reluctantly agreed to go clubbing this past weekend. I’d never been before. (Can you blame me? I don’t know of any clubs in Cleveland, and wouldn’t go even if I did. Because, you know, it’s the Cle.) Anyway, the leader of our troop decided to ease me into it, I suppose, by deciding that we’d go to a gay club. Because, why not? This way I wouldn’t have skeevy guys hitting on me. No, instead we got to witness drag queens signing karaoke. And they were awesome. The music was basically club-remixes of the Top 40. All of the songs were by female artists (Ke$ha, Britney Spears, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Pink, etc.) It was crowded but not packed, and honestly a whole lot of fun. The best part of all? No cover. Jokes, it was totally the lasers.
This might just be a weekly thing. Check out the exaggerated version of my Saturday night:
And, yes, the overall experience was fairly similar to the HIMYM episode, “Okay Awesome.” Namely because in the same weekend, I, too, broke a tooth. And how muffled the real world sounds when you leave.
