Happy New Years and all that overload of sadness, happiness and whatever else that comes with it. Hope you’re having a good one! These two days were kind of merged together since my night from day 5 slid it’s way into the next morning of day 6.
So this was my first time clubbing, ever, another thing I’ve been avoiding. Two friends ,let’s call them “S” and “M”, and I started off our New Years Eve by going to the club to get our tickets and stamps early to get into the club later on. When we got that sorted, we went to dinner at S’s work place; a buffet place. That was a slightly bad idea though since it was hella expensive and we didn’t end up eating everything we paid for even though buffets are like real life heaven but oh well.
Afterwards, we walked to the bus stop so we could catch the bus back to the club because parking was hectic there, especially since it was NYE. On the way though, we had a brief encounter (best pick up line you’ll
never successfully use) that went;
Guy: Hey girls, have you ever been to India?
Us: Erm… no?
Guy: Well why don’t you get Ind-here. *Gestures to nether region*
Us: *Eye rolls*
So there you go guys (and girls). If you ever want to
not pick up girls, there’s some solid words for you right there. 👌 Read it, repeat it and memorize it.
We eventually got to the club but were a little early so we sat around for a bit and played pool with a guy (who just wanted to hit on S) until it started getting busier. I don’t really remember what order everything was in but we:
- Found a friend from high school
- Won three dollars from a pokies by pressing random buttons but lost one when M wanted to keep playing
- Had a few conversations here and there but I was pretty terrible at holding them and it was like 90-100% the other person starting them/keeping it going
- Danced with each other on the dance floor
- Pulled each other away from people on the dance floor (though I forgot to do that at one point and kind of left M hanging, oops) 😝
- Had a set of shots (Soo gross) and a few more drinks
- Showed someone how to hand out toilet paper in the ladies room (It’s a tough skill)
…and so on. We did the countdown into 2016 when midnight came and when it hit the big zero, S and I got up onto the bar bench we were sitting at and danced for a few seconds until a security guy got us to hop off but it was totally worth it. 😃 I never thought I’d do that either because of how anxious I get in certain situations but maybe it was the drinks or the vibe of the place.
Then S’s boyfriend joined us and I felt like the BIGGEST third wheel ever because there were moments where S would pair off with her boyfriend, M would pair off with some other guy she’d found and clung onto for the rest of the night and I was just like… “He’s just invisible guys”. I was like the ultimate third wheel and it was awkward as hell when they all got lovey dovey with each other.
The night ended at around 2-3 in the am. M’s sister came and picked us up and I ended up just crashing at her place until the next morning.
What did I learn from all this? I’m still pretty freaking dreadful at conversations and hate Cronos and Summers and pretty much anything to do with the taste of most alchomahol so far but love Vodka when it has a fruit flavour in it’s name. 😋 Though I’d still prefer hot chocolate any day. Xisha’s a hardcore party animaaaaallll now. Said no one ever.
This was another thing that I’ve wanted to try for ages now and definitely had its moments. Clubbing’s not so much something I was looking forward to but more something that I wanted to try before judging it like it was Satan’s work. Actually turned out pretty cool. 😊 It wasn’t the greatest but it wasn’t the worst. Anyway, have an awesome 2016 guys!
