The One In Which A Whole Lotta Nothing Happens

In high school, I was the biggest goody-two-shoes there ever was.
Hours of my free time in the afternoons were spent not at Sonic Drive Thru 
sampling a rainbow of drink options with friends (I did that on weekends... duh.)
not going to friends' houses to do I-don't-even-know-what-because-I-never-went,
but on classroom couches, grilling my teachers about their weekend plans 
and kids and how do you really feel about us?

I was ... special.

But through all those weeks of helping teachers grade papers,
or arranging meetings with other nerd-friends on how to save the environment,
I'd always be thinking "high school's setting me back. When I'm in college..."

I'd party till dawn.
Live the rockstar lifestyle.
Be the biggest social butterfly who ever fluttered the earth.

After still being completely knackered from last weekend,
when I stepped out of my suite socialized with a few friends,
you know what I did this weekend?

I didn't change out of my pajamas at all;
I set a personal goal of watching an entire season of FRIENDS,
and knocking out a few movies while I was at it;
I drew the blinds and shunned the sunshine,
and laid happily in my down blanket cocoon and refused to ... flutter,
except to go grab a humongous burrito because 
hey, I'm in college - I do what I want. (YOLO.)

I'll give you a second to process my wild ways.

Now, wait for it.

It was toga party this past weekend.

-My high school self is slapping my current self right now-

The most quintessentially college-party-life you could get.
And the entire duration of the party, I was a zombie in my room,
sobbing hysterically (happy tears! happy tears!) to The One With The Proposal, thinking: 
Chandler and Monica and Rachel and Phoebe and Joey and Ross
never had to go out (okay, at least they didn't show it - and what's not shown, is irrelevant).

Moral of this story about nothing:
When forced to choose between sweaty frats/making an effort,
or this:

I don't have to tell you the answer.

Off to work on my Vitamin D deficiency,
and to remind my friends that I (somehow) still exist.
Practice being a recluse in moderation, people.


  1. ahah you are so funny !
    Well I SO understand you ! didn't go anywhere this week-end I was sooo lazy

  2. I love my some FRIENDS !!!!!! Best reason to stay in!


  3. I totally feel like a recluse at times, but you're so right, it's something that should only be done in moderation. College, after all, is the time to find new people and discover new things. Although a FRIENDS marathon now and then can't hurt :P


  4. The header of your blog is so pretty!

  5. Yes. Takeout, Starbucks, and tv? Yes, please.

  6. Ahahah i spent almost all the winter weekends at home watching movies...oh "il dolce far niente"! How sweet is doing nothing =)

  7. I always enjoy staying home in my room catching up on missed episodes or watching movies by myself. But I agree with you, also, that it should be done in moderation....invite one of your gal pals next time, I'm sure they would want to join!

  8. We'd be right next to you on the couch! Or in your living room practicing our "routine" like Ross and Monica. :-) HAHA!!

  11. awww heart this :) i love friends.. sometimes all you need is some R&R and some friends reruns!!

    ooh btw i just found out that they sell Tim Tam's year round (because apparently target only stocks them certain times of the year and only at certain stores) they are sold at Cost Plus World Market and they don't say Tim Tam's on it but it says "Arnott's Original" which is the company that owns Tim Tam's it's just branded different in the US :)

  12. Haha this is so cute! I definitely miss college days like this!

  13. Lazy nights watching awesome shows like Friends totally beats crazy parties most of the time anyway I think. :)

  14. So you had a lot of fun. There´s nothing better than watching your favorite series on the couch. I have seen Friends sooo many times. I guess I have all the dvds :D


  15. Haha just like Seinfeld a show about nothing that lasted over ten years!

  16. I loved friends! It was such a great show and I was the same in High-School.


  17. Ok. People can judge me, but I will choose watching Friends over going to a toga party ANY TIME OF MY LIFE ahahahaha I'm not very big in those pointless gatherings where everybody gets super waisted, and nothing is really done. I rather do nothing, laughing at Chandler's jokes. This is the biggest Friends fan that ever existed (me) lol!


  18. I love Friends too! Best show ever.


your comments truly make my day! :)
thank you!
