I don’t consider myself a huge partier or even a big drinker, but I’ve definitely made some memories that will make me shutter, smile and think I must have been the most stupid person in college when I look back on college years from now. They’re definitely not the moments I text my parents about, share with my grandparents and aunts when they ask how school is; they’re more just for me and my awesome friends who took care of me.
1. Drunkenly and sloppily hit on and flirt with someone who catches your fancy while thinking you’re so smooth even George Clooney would be charmed. What? Not everyone thinks George Clooney is the male human body at perfection? Just insert your favorite charming celebrity then. This is the kind of moment that makes you shudder the next morning, but after that is just the moment you look back on and think, “While at least I’m not THAT stupid anymore.” You’ll entertain your friends, and 30 years from now when your kids are in college, you can admit the stupid things you did in college, and they’ll think you’re cooler and funnier than they ever dreamed.
2. Walk up to someone you’ve had your eye on or someone who just caught your eye that night and say “I like you, I want to get to know you and I want to kiss you,” then kiss the person. Just make sure the person is single. (It could get bad otherwise.) He or she may realize that some of your confidence is alcohol-induced, but the person will also think you’re amazing. I don’t know a single person who wouldn’t be impressed and totally charmed by that.
3. Sing the sappiest song you can think of in drunken karaoke. “I will always love you” “L.O.V.E” “Stand by me” “Stand by you” “Stand by your man” “It’s in his kiss.” All of these lovey-dovey songs are great karaoke choices, but don’t feel like you have to limit yourself to one of these. There are plenty of other great cheesy songs that will embarrass you just the same.
4. Convince someone you meet out that you’re something you’re not. For example, since I speak French and can kind of do a French accent, I would try to convince someone that I’m French and would use some ridiculous back story about my family and why I’m in the U.S. You can do the same thing, and who knows that person may find you so charming that you end up dating or becoming life-long friends.
