This weekend… wow, I don’t know what a sleep schedule is anymore and I’m okay with that.
I have found some of the best ways to bond with friends at college is to spend a night with them. Not in the sense of sleeping with them, but in the sense of spending an entire evening together, talking, laughing, enjoying each others’ companies, and basically just relaxing.
I had one of those nights on Friday night. I expected to be all bored and alone, which had me down, all because many of my friends were out either at home or at friends’ homes. Then suddenly my friends who WERE on campus were also bored.
Long story short, three of us (at one point four, but he only stayed about 2 hours) sat in a room with a computer, two iPhones, an N64, and we managed to keep entertained between the gaming, videos, and talking until 5:30 AM, when I walked (erm, shambled) them back to their respective dorms and crashed.
My sleep schedule does not forgive me for then sleeping until 3:30 PM, but you know what? Sometimes it’s just plain good to spend an all nighter that ISN’T because of a paper.
I know, this blog feels kind of rambley, but honestly aside from classes being in their second week and the Big South announcement (which means nothing to me because I do not follow sports), there’s not much to pass on but general advice.
My general advice: spend a night with friends. We do this a lot until late in the night, but we have never done it until the birds were actually chirping again, but both ways are really enjoyable, beat being alone, and make for some fun jokes and conversations.
