Okay, since I have spent this entire day trying to write a paper and actually have less of it now than I did when I began this morning, I am here to provide my own perspective on Sig Chi formal and also to discuss last night quickly.
I think that Sophie covered day 1 pretty well, lots of beach frolicking, eating and so on. However she did miss out what was quite possibly my favourite part of the entire thing, i.e the part where we all had to sing a horrendous, entirely tuneless song to welcome in the new sweetheart. It was really quite something. I imagine the innocent families in the restaurant loved it.
Also I did promise to include this picture in this post…shoutout to our ex-Derby Days coach & one of my very favourite Sig Chis Colin who I evidently accosted on the beach and who I have had many a wild night at the unit with:
Just look at that.
Anyway so as I said, Sophie covered day 1 so that leaves me to briefly do day 2. We were less efficient than Sophie & Canakis and one of our party was suffering BADLY so we went to the strange Native American Pancake land a little later than them. It was seriously bizarre. Then since we don’t really care about schoolwork/I secretly enjoy making myself do 15 page papers in one day, we decided to spend the rest of the day on the beach. This meant socialising by myself for once but it was okay, I had a lot of fun with our new friend Kaitlyn and numerous other people who were still around and it was super sunny and all the boys were running around playing games and stuff. For some reason I’d decided to only put half my bikini on so I couldn’t go in the sea but we did try and paddle and it was FREEZING so I wasn’t too upset. Eventually we decided we should probably leave and so we drove back to the Burg and so ends our second formal adventure.
HOWEVER that was not the end of our weekend adventure. It was a pretty quick turnaround but a couple of hours after I returned it was time to rally again. We went to the Leafe in New Town for Courtney’s birthday dinner which was sooo fun, and then we went over to Pi Phi for a bit to partake in some wine drinking and catching up with Emily. We had also made a very solemn promise to our fellow countryman Jamie that we’d see him at some point on Saturday, and as it was now like 11pm or something and his texts were getting increasingly abusive, we decided to walk to Griffin (even though it was gross outside – dedication!).
This was where things started to take a turn for the distinctly bizarre. We walked into Griffin to find Jamie & Ed sitting on the couch playing some sort of weird sexy drinking game with some mums. Like literally middle aged woman – I don’t even know. We played for a bit and then when we’d had enough of hearing about baby lotion on and so on we decided to wander off, where we stumbled across some Sig Chis, so we talked to them for a bit and then we decided to risk it and go to the bars. Very safely we piled at least a hundred people into Ed’s tiny car, and then luckily a lovely bouncer remembered us from last time and after hearing that it was our last ever Saturday in the Burg was very happy to let us in and very concerned that we had a good time.
Anyway so we hung around in the bars for a while and then we decided to go back to Jamie’s for a while, where we indulged in some blacklight action and got involved in/watched a very long very boring argument about Everton and Liverpool or something. Once again, I don’t even know. THEN eventually we realised it was like 3am and we were both knackered from the formal action anyway soooo we made the long trek back and that was that.
Last weekend in Williamsburg = a success! AND this time tomorrow I will (hopefully) have given in this stupid paper and will finally, finally be free!
