#Reverb10: 9.0

December 9 – Party

Prompt: Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans.

Oy... another toughy. I'm really bad at selecting one thing when it comes to the "best" moments or favorite things. For one this year's not over, and there are 21 potentially epic nights to be had. I think though, this year, I had a pretty rocking time on the day I defended my thesis and on my 27th birthday. Both involved copious libation and big groups of friends. But I also count Boulder Humane's "Puttin' on the Leash" event in April as one of the most fun nights, and I was volunteering, not partying. I also had a blast playing in the King of Mountain volleyball tournament in Vail with Amy (that only involved a little beer and lots of ibuprofen).

It's weird how my social life has changed in the last two years. I used to be a superheavy partier in Philly, going out several nights a week and drinking my weight in Jack Daniels. I would often only be getting in an hour or two before I had to be at work and would suffer through the day only to stifle my hangover by going out again. I'm not glorifying my life, but I'm glad I lived through it (literally and figuratively). While I still like the occasional crazy night (last night, for example, which I am paying for today), they are few and far between these days. But my most fun social gatherings involve the same elements: my friends, music, and face-splitting laughter.

#Reverb10 is a project that encourages people to reflect on the current year and manifest what's to come in the next by responding to a daily prompt. To get involved with #Reverb10, click on over to their website and join in the fun.
