Whether it’s in a tiny apartment or a big new house, I’ve always enjoyed having my friends over for “get togethers.” Because after college graduation they’re no longer called “pre-games.”
This is the game, folks. Come prepared.
As many of you know, try as I might, I am seriously incapable of channeling my inner-Martha. But that’s okay, because when you host parties as a 20-something, the expectations are set pretty low.
You can ask people to bring their own booze and it’s not considered rude or impractical.
No one cares if you don’t have matching serving dishes. It’s not plastic or foil? That’s high class!
DIY decorations are not only acceptable, but highly encouraged.
Pot-luck is the easiest kind of luck to come by.
After college, the depressing realization sets in that Real Life is void of weekly “sober sisters” to cart your drunk ass around, so friends rarely want to bother with figuring out driving. Let’s just get drunk at someone’s place and fall where we may.
And most importantly, I’ve realized that everyone else in their early-to-mid-20s is still figuring things out. No one has all of their shit together, and it’s just nice to be around people with whom you don’t have to pretend otherwise.
I’m glad you’re here, New Year’s Eve! I’m ready for ya!
Let’s chat – What are your plans tonight? Staying in, or going out? We’re hosting a “get together” tonight! I can’t wait to spend time with my great friends!
