Taking the stress out of having fun
Im happy we are at the end of our 4th of july weekend. I have to be honest im glad this week is over! With work being slow, a strange turn of events, and trying to stick to all the plans we had this week, im exhausted.
Even though it was suppose to be all about the 4th, my friends and I did more celebrating on the 3rd..why? Well it was my best friend D's birthday!
The girls and I rented a huge room on the 16th floor of the biltmore for the night...the plans entailed getting dinner at trinity brewhouse, then heading over to club hell for 80's night.
A bunch of friends and family came to meet up with us..but the party didnt end when the club closed...everyone came back to the room for the after party. It was one of those situations where you turn around and all of a sudden the room is filled with people (crazy!)..but it was a blast, we had the room filled with balloons and D's brother brought his guitar so we were all jamming out.
Im surprised we didnt get kicked out! Thank god i only had one haircut the next day considering i was super tired...but the 4th was uneventful. I guess that was my fault.
Even though the previous night was fun i needed a break from going out. I was begining to feel like i was seeing the same places/people, and the fun in going out is to expand and to see new places and people but also not to forget about some of your favorites.
I had to let go of having expectations for our nights and start living in the moment more like i was before..you cant plan the fun and memorable times, they have to find you.
After staying in for the 4th the following night seemed to be a different scene (yes!) It was my friend chuck and kevins movie premiere...they were sending in this tape to MTV and comedy central to try to get their own show.
Let me tell you this movie was amazing...between their super funny pranks and skits it also had clips from a ton of shows they played over the years. I have to say i think they have a chance! Its unique, funny, and they make you feel like you've known them for years. It was such a nice change of pace!
Sat. night rolled around and i was out to eat with my dad. i swore i wasnt going to go out but my friends and i were invited to AS220 to check out a bunch of bands.
Randomly ran into Emily's friend Ben who was outside and his roommate Vincent who i met on my birthday. Even though i didnt go to the after party after the show (surprise surprise) it was a lot of fun to hang with Ben and Vincent..i can see many more fun times to come!
That brings me to the end of my weekend...it was fun and im glad i got a chance to chill out and not put too much planning into my new plans...
i think at times we try to detour ourselves from the stresses of life by taking on extra projects or just trying to escape, but in return the stress is still there...so ive done everything to get rid of it and start this week on a nice clean stress free slate!
