And this is how my blog is revitalized. I experienced a drought in my life.. my desire to write shriveled. I did not entirely lose myself, but I did forget a piece of myself. Misplaced most likely. Somewhere. So I planted some blue flowers. Promise to forget-me-not.

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*

*spills coffee*

*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*

*Kaleidoscope eyes*




*Tells everyone we are triplets*

*Everyone believes us*

*Porta potty*



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.
