Survivors Guide to Well Rounded
Being at Well Rounded 2015 I heard stories about how at Bashes people party all day and night and rarely slept and ate sparingly if at all. I wondered how did people survive these bashes. Then I ran across these wonderful ladies,Lorraine C. from California, Robyn C. from Delaware, and Lorri P. from Oklahoma, who took the time to introduce me to their Bash survivors guide and now with their permission I share it with you.
1. Drama Violators with be B**ch slapped !
“Save the drama for your mama.” Your at the bash to have a good time and enjoy the company of friends you may only see once a year. If you got a grudge against someone, let it go until the Bash is over. Then if you want pick that grudge up afterwords. The bash shouldn’t be a place to have a “real housewives” episode.
2. If the COPS arrive, it’s every person for themselves
When I read this one my first thought was of those parties that got too loud and a jealous neighbor calls the cops. When they show up people spread like roaches under the light. Sometimes things get a little nuts and someone is bound to call the law. Keep in mind if that happens get out as fast as possible and if your smart you and your friends have a rendezvous point,
3. Don’t be a cockblocker or clamjammer (for the ladies)
Its a bash fact. People hook up, if your friend is hooking up with someone. Basically stay out of the way and don’t be a dick/b**ch about it. If its your roommate,give the room for a hour or so. Hopefully there is something going on somewhere to keep you occupied for a little while. If your friend is really your friend then they will return the favor if your in the same situation.
4. If you are going to throw up, you better make it CLASSY.
I have no idea how you can make throwing up look classy. Maybe you can hold up a martini glass at the same time your hugging the porcelain throne, I don’t know. if your going to toss your cookies, I would say get out of sight as much as possible.
5. DRINK until they are cute!!!( If they aren’t cute by the 6th shot, give up!)
There is the saying “drink until they are cute.” However even that has its limits.
6. Don’t do anything you don’t want tagged in FACEBOOK.
Sadly there was a time long, long ago. When what you did in Vegas, actually stayed in Vegas. Sadly with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram,tumbler, etc, etc. Now EVERYTHING you do at a bash can be uploaded for the world to see. So next time the thought crosses your mind to run naked across a field or put a lamp shade on your head. Or try your hand at crossdressing. BEWARE of the Social Media posters!!!
7. TOAST before SHOTS!
Few things are sadder than taking a shot alone. ALWAYS make a toast before you take a shot. Get the community involved, by that I mean the people around you, even of you don’t know them. Screw it, you will know them now. No idea what to toast? My go to is always “salud, Amor y dinero.”. Which means Health, Love and Money.
8. Follow the 5-2-1 Rule ( At least 5 hours of sleep, 2 meals, and one shower to survive any bash)
This rule helped me survive my first bash. The parties go on all night, which is awesome!! After a long night of partying, drinking and being awesome. You may get to bed around 5am, maybe.. Wake up by 10am get a meal and a shower then start partying again. Then get another meal sometime in the late afternoon so it will fuel you for the awesome night ahead.
9. And lastly, GO HARD OR GO HOME!
I doubt this needs any explanation.
But just in case, party hard, but don’t forget the rules listed above.
