Field Notes: Thankful For Another Break Edition

 This may be awful, but it's kind of funny too.

This may be awful, but it’s kind of funny too.

With Thanksgiving but a mere few days away and many going off to celebrate with family and friends away from the Morningside campus bubble, Bwog reflected on what we were thankful for this past weekend. Besides our very own Bwogsgiving, where we gathered to offer thanks to the sangria gods, many enjoyed a weekend full of merry times and thankful peers.

Sharing thanks:

  • Spent my saturday (defined as the time between 6 PM saturday and 10 AM sunday) smoking weed alone and watching the office while playing video games. It was great.
  • Had alcohol for the first time in a month (at symposium) and ended up just hugging people all night (honestly what else is new).
  • Went to a farm with chickens, saw a turkey, and decided it was the King Chicken.
  • Stopped by ADPhi, barely made it through the door before realizing I needed to be drunker. Went to Amigo’s, got their sippy cup sized “Frozen”, liquidy and saccharine, Margaritas.
  • Woke up covered in glitter.
  • Attended a lit hum party and played ‘slap the bag’ for the first time.
  • Conducted cost/benefit analysis of cheap 5L boxed wine versus horrible next-day hangover.
  • Ate half a slice of Koronets every night of the weekend so that piled up real fast.
  • Cleaned up puke in the parking lot of a Stew Leonard’s.
  • Friend texted me to get breakfast, I waited until 2:30 when she finally showed up, John Jay was closed.
  • Went gallery hopping in Chelsea and got drunk on free wine.
  • Lost my purse, gained drinks from a 6’5 tennis grad & 40 year old cuban man.
  • Trudged through the freezing wind/rain on saturday night all the way from carman to carlton arms, umbrella in hand, very very drunk.


An ode to leaving Morningside:

  • Showed up to a concert 5 minutes before doors and still made barricade. God is real.
  • After symposium, drank way too much at beta (thanks to a stranger with dominican? liquor) and got drunker than i’ve ever been in my life, blacked out for the first time in my life, spent the rest of the weekend recovering.
  • Went to 1020 after Bwogsgiving as the result of peer pressure, still recovering. Mel’s Gin-n-Tonic cured me and wiped my brain of that traumatic experience.
  • Attempted first keg stand.
  • Forgot a bag at a cafe in the upper east side on saturday and had to separately uber there and back on sunday.
  • Spent the whole weekend subtlety tracking down a guy I like only to find out late last night that he probably has a girlfriend so that was fun!
  • Tried to do yoga this morning to feign health but I woke up bloated w/ a potential ear infection so it was a no go.
  • Fell in love. (Her name is Smirnoff Peppermint-Infused Vodka.)
  • Had to return twice to Broadway after hanging out with a friend there (first because I forgot to sign out, and second because I forgot my water bottle at the front desk when I signed out.)
  • Walked to Insomnia Cookies in hail storm Saturday night, but got like 3 free cookies and my friends’ leftovers, and a free bottle of milk.
  • Got a guy to buy me a drink at a bar for the first time by convincing him i was a british international student and didnt have any U.S. currency on me.
  • Hit my first gravity bong.
