Wow! This was the most amazing night ever.
Before the new year still, I was invited to a belated birthday party of an old friend of mine. At the time, I met a few other old friends, and one of them told me about a Drum&Bass/Dubstep event on the 16th of January(15th when I looked it up). I was sure to write it down in my agenda. Today I went there, and it was amazing. I was actually pretty nervous when I was still at home. But on my way there, I told myself that I would do something that would change the way I think about myself. And it did.
So at first I was there, waiting for my friends to show up. When they did, we went inside and had a good time. Eventually more familiar faces showed up. Including a girl who had some obvious interest in me before. It didn’t take long before I got to dance with her. I also had a chance to move my feet with my friend’s girlfriend, while her little sister was dancing at the side. Quite cool to have this one guy stare at me for dancing with 2 girls. That made me feel rather awesome. As time crossed us by, all of a sudden my friends had disappeared. WTF?
So I went up to a girl I had seen a friend of mine talk to, and asked her if she had seen him. She told me she didn’t know, but I took this chance to dance with her a little. During our dance she told me how she had danced at a party bigger than this, illegal and including drugs. Though I’ve been wanting to dance with her since the beginning of the night, this was a turnoff. I soon found a chance to go home, and did. On my way to the exit, I saw one of the guys. I asked him where everyone went to, and he said they left. That’s when I went home.
It felt like my life had changed, as I rode back. For the first time in my life, I danced with 3 girls on one eve. And so, for the first time in my life, the obnoxious drunk fella riding in front of me was my comrade. I guess we shared the same joy. Now that I’m home, I guess I can say this was the best night of my life. I totally made up for the bad aftertaste from that new year’s party! I fucking loved it!
(It’s funny how easy I seem to forget achievements that really matter, so I’d like to take this opportunity to add some details. I shaved before going to the party, it might have had some influence. I was still in the middle of getting my hair cut though. On my way there, I told myself I still had plenty to learn, and it made me feel stronger to know that I’d learn something new that night. I met a guy who works in the local concession stand, and who’s been in my class ages ago. I also met a friend of my causins who’s serving the army, and an old neighbour friend. Someone spilled a mixdrink on the right sleeve/shoulder of the denim vest I was wearing. It smelled rather sweet, familiar, probably redbull… It makes these memmories all the more vivid! When I walked up to the girl to ask her a question, I thought I could smell she had eaten garlic, but I didn’t mind it much. Her appearance vagualy reminded me of Arielle Kebbel. I came home at about 2:15, so I think I left at about 2:00. I felt as if I was equal to everyone else out there, unlike that time with the new year. The music was downright awesome aswel.)
