As a freshman you’re most excited for one thing, and that’s probably going out. But what no one prepares you for is the deadly ladies night. If you’ve never heard of ladies night its when a bar lets all girls drink for free. Being a broke college student free drinks are very, VERY important. But the free drinks need to come with a warning! For example “if you drink more than 3 you will not be responsible for what happens next.” Unfortunately my friends and I did not get this memo.
As I walked around Shuck I noticed ladies night winning and all ladies losing. There were girls dancing (highly intoxicated) girls puking in the bathroom and some girls talking to guys that were way below their standards. After taken this all in I realized I wouldn’t trade that moment for anything in the world. This is the kind of experience I came to college for, these were the memories I had been so desperate to make. This is when I let loose and had the time of my life with my best friends and boyfriend by my side.
For the rest of the night we just laughed, danced, and had so much fun. The music was great and the atmosphere was even better. By the end of the night I didn’t even want to leave. This one night made me realize why I left the safety net of my little island. I wanted to make memories the island couldn’t give me. I wanted to experience what kind of life and adventure there was outside of the two mile by four-mile island I had made my home for eighteen years. Although to most ladies night may just be another typical night of bar hopping, to me it was a memory I wouldn’t give up for a million bucks.
