Do you ever make spontaneous decisions?
I know for a fact that you know the insane ideas I am talking about. We all have them. But the question is… do you ever follow through with them?
Well, my friends and I are crazy. Soooo we often find ourselves making split-second choices that lack rational thought about the possible future consequences. Thus, at the end of every week, we normally have a stellar, somewhat ridiculous story to tell. But it was on February 18th at 12:17 a.m. that we made one of our most nonsensical decisions yet. We decided within a span of about 13 seconds that the next day we would drive from Flagstaff to Chandler to none other but a rave. I mean pshhh what could possibly go wrong?
February 18th 12:17 a.m.
*The Ginger Illuminati (Tori, Ri, & Nat) all exchange glances*
“Who’s down to go to Crush tomorrow”
*a triangle of smirks*
February 18th 9:34 a.m.
“Wait… are we actually buying tickers or”
February 18th 1:07 p.m.
*3 ticket purchases later*
“We need to leave by 1:30”
February 18th 2:11 p.m.
*frantically searches for car in parking garage*
*soaked in rain*
February 18th 2:34 p.m.
“Hell yes! I found the car!”
February 18th 4-ish p.m.
*shops at a Walmart located in judgmental, white-privileged community*
*gets weird looks at our rave outfits*
February 18th 5:32 p.m.
*drenches each other in pink glitter*
*Riley smuggles cliff bar in pants*
February 18th 5:34 p.m.
*exits rave because not willing to throw away Nat’s cough drops or Tori’s Ginger Spice flavored chapstick*
*Riley smuggles cliff bar in rave via pants again*
As we walked in, time became an insignificant, inaccurate form of measurement.. we had entered The Twilight Zone.
*Peace, Love, Unity, Respect*
*Sees entire NAU including ambassadors from orientation*
*Meets Eric, Tony, & Molly*
*Becomes one with music*
*Stays hydrated* -quick shoutout to Eric for providing an endless supply of H2O
*Butt is wet, shorts are soaked from sitting in water*
*Tells everyone we are triplets*
*Everyone believes us*
February 19th After Rave- Time is still irrelevant
*Goes to IHOP for some black coffee and french fries*
*Wears only socks because shoes are muddy and wet*
*Meets drunk lady in bathroom who reminiscences about her old rave days*
*Drunk lady gives Ri and Nat life advice*
*Drunk lady randomly sits at our table*
“Wow I love you guys!! Let’s all be friends”
*Tori “accidentally” leaves with her IHOP coffee cup.. again.*
*Nat, Tori, and Ri crash at Sam’s dorm at GCU*
“GCU- God Can’t Unsee.”
I hope you all enjoyed this play-by-play of our spontaneous decision to go to a rave. Yes, you are allowed to judge us, but I truly hope you get something from this post. I truly hope that maybe next time you have a crazy idea, that you take a risk and go for it. Because even if it doesn’t work out perfectly, it’ll make a great story to tell later. & it’s the stupid moments that will create the deepest bonds with your friends. & it’s the lame choices that form the memories you will hold closest in your heart. So, my 13 readers, today I am telling you to stop thinking so much, just go for it.
