The 18 Stages of a Student Night Out
Since you’re at university, you’ve developed a shameless passion for nights out. Going out is always exciting and has become a sensational ritual. But partying follows some steps that you have been surely been through.
1. Getting lost on your way to predrinks.
You don’t manage to find the place where you are supposed to join your friends. After walking during long minutes without conclusive results, you’re about to start drinking alone in the street.
2. Awkward predrinking.
You’ve finally joined your friends and it’s time to predrinks. At the beginning, you’re staying with people you know and you particularly avoid talking to anyone else.
3. Playing drinking games.
Suddenly, someone loudly asks people to play ring of fire. You are the first to volunteer. After all, it’s the occasion to know people whilst getting incredibly and quickly drunk.
4. Getting too drunk to function.
The drinking games hit you hard and you are now telling your whole life story to someone you’ve just met. You’re not even sure if you’ll make it out.
5. Calling the taxi.
You’re checking the time and after realising it is midnight, you and your friends decide to call a taxi. But it is not clear who is calling or how many people are coming out. The whole thing is chaos.
Of course you’ve arrived quite late and have no other choice than to queue in the cold.
7. Trying to getting inside.
After at least 20 minutes waiting outside, you hand your ID to the security guy hoping he won’t notice how drunk you are.
8. Immediately going to toilets.
You’re finally inside and you waste no time in going to the toilets. If you are a guy it takes a couple of minutes, but if you are a girl you will also check your make up and take toilet selfies with your friends.
9. Buying shots.
The queue sobered you up a bit which means you need tequila.
10. Going to the dance floor because the music is calling you.
You think you’re killing it but really you look like an idiot.
11. Losing everyone.
You’re so absorbed by the music that you don’t realise all your friends have disappeared.
12. Making random friends.
You finally realise you are alone. Hence, you decide to look for your friends. You go everywhere even in the smoking area where you meet those who will become your friends for one night only.
13. Realising you are tired and hungry.
It is almost 3am, you’ve had lot of fun but you are now exhausted and feel the need to eat some unhealthy food.
14. Trying to walk home.
You leave the club and walk home alone as you no longer have money to take a taxi. You clearly struggle.
15. Buying food you usually don’t eat.
On your way there is this place with this seductive smell. You can’t resist and enter to order fries with gravy, a kebab or a burger.
16. Passing out next to your uneaten food.
You’ve made it home, finally. You go to your room, lay in bed and automatically fall asleep without taking a bite from your kebab or burger.
17. Waking up hungover and counting the pennies you have left.
You miraculously open your eyes to find out you can no longer move from your bed. You decide to check your wallet. Although your ID is still here, there is no money to be seen. You cry and swear you will never go out ever again.
18. Doing it all over again the following week.
But of course, such promises fade and you can’t resist to have another round. After all, you won’t be a student all your life.
