Artsy Chick reading Ophelia, Life Lessons, and College Parties

Spontaneity is the key to the good life. In keeping with that mantra, this past weekend couldn’t have went any differently than planned.

Last Concert Cafe and Flying Saucer on Friday brought about an almost-fight, a political disagreement, and getting booted from a hippie bar… All in 5 minutes. Who gets booted from a hippie bar? Much like the other eternal youth of lore, Peter Pan, someone has a shadow named trouble that follows him around like Mr. Magoo’s raincloud! Time for DNC Etiquette Boot Camp! LOL! It really wasn’t as dramatic as it sounds and we had a good time welcoming Chad Kight to his 29th year on earth. Lots and lots of alcohol.

Saturday morning, Chad (birthday boy), Kris, Lauren, and I took off to San Marcos for an impromptu whatever lets-just-get-out-of-town type of trip. Rolling right down I-35 and landing at the Exchange pool, we met some pretty interesting people. Hippy Volleyballers, a cute girl named Virginia reading Ophelia, an angry chihuahua, and old friends…. And afterwards? Jessica Hemmingway’s for some chill time with her and roommates. Dinner at River Pub followed by the Square rounded it out. Ran into @MoVelez and friends outside Nephews. Weird. You run into the coolest of people in the strangest of places.

Late night, Lauren decided against going to the foam party with us at the PiKapp’s new house. Too bad. Outside of the foam-covered slippery dirty ground, we had a good time. Kris is a well-known alumni so he had a million people running up to party with him. I could go through the whole thing but it all ended with about 20 of us crammed in a smokey room with Jessica, dressed like Angela Jolie in Mr.  Mrs. Smith, dancing on the coffee table. Let’s just leave it at that. Ahh, miss college.

Above and beyond anything else, the absolute coolest part of the weekend was outside the PiKapp house at the end of the night, about 4am. There were about ten people outside, eight of which could play guitar. So an instantaneous jam session just kind of happened. Next thing we know it and we’re all jamming and singing Jack Johnson into the country air. Hard to describe but definitely an awesome moment. And Sienna’s Jewel A Capella was equally awesome.

Goes to show – the moral of this weekend is that you have to enjoy life as it comes. You’re not gonna get the time back. You can go on and make millions and millions of dollars, start a family, etc. etc. and yet you may still find yourself trying to fill the voids of your early adulthood but WAY too late. Is it really the same? It’s like a crackhead chasing that first high. Simply a temporary fix.

Enjoy life NOW while it’s all still relevant and you still have the time.

In honor of this weekend, and life in general, here are some links to Jack Johnson MP3’s. Play. Download. Do as you wish.

Good Weekend. BTW – Watch out for that karma guys. Apparently it gives you bronchitis.
