Formal in Louisville (Louaville) was by far one of the most fun times I’ve ever had, and it was also the longest drive I have ever made (which is kind of a bigger deal for me). The Brothers of Phi Gamma Delta were able to spend Friday night to Saturday morning at the Galt Hotel, and we were able to explore and travel different parts of Louisville.
A number of people visited the derby, others the Louisville Slugger Factory, and others went to Chipotle for lunch (i.e. me). We went around town, saw the people, the riverside park, and enjoyed hanging in our hotel rooms watching ABC Family movies. Theeeeeeeen we turned up with that fancy three course dinner, and danced like Wabash Men do (like idiots, ’cause #YOLO).
Leave your phone in your room and go to the library for several hours. That is all. College will suddenly become a lot easier, your work will get done much quicker, and have more focused papers and assignments done.
However, when you’re having free time go and follow us on Twitter and Instagram to watch us experience Wabash in pictures and words!
As kids we thought naps were worthless, we wanted to stay up late, and go do whatever we wanted. We thought that once we were adults (I mean how much of adults are we really at 19?) we would go travel the world, be in charge of everything about our lives, and watch PG13 movies past 10 o’clock at night. Well now we are dependent on naps, and liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiterally cannot function without them.
In high school, I thought my older friends in college were giant babies for complaining about 9AM and 10AM classes. After all, in high school we start at 7:50AM. Ha of course you don’t think about all the late nights doing work and studying that pile up and cause a 9AM class to feel like 5AM. A nap is nothing more than the sweetest taste of bliss on a Thursday afternoon.
Naps, naps, naps, naps, naps, naps… take them!
This weekend Phi Gamma Delta traveled to Louisville, Kentucky to have our Purple Garter Formal at the Galt Hotel. A three hour ride of my date dominating the radio (even though it was her car), cloudy skies, dull conversations, and the experience of a driver with a led foot and no respect for the speed limit. Just kidding though, the conversations weren’t dull.
Our first night in Louisville another brother in the house and our dates went to a nice brewery restaurant a few blocks away from the hotel. A very excellent restaurant where a poor college student can spend a fortune ($10) on a nice veggie burger and atmosphere. But just remember that if you tip your waitress in three dollar bills and two dollars in assorted coins, your fellow companions will think you’re a cheap butt.
One of the coolest things about being in FIJI is our vast budget for our two formals over both semesters, and the niceness of rooms and hotel each of us gets. It’s fun to be in college, and especially in a fraternity!
One thing my mother was probably most worried about before/while I’m still at Wabash is cleanliness. That woman is just a germaphobe in general, but it is also no secret that college-age-men are not the cleanest of specimens. So naturally after a very short period of time (about 5 minutes after waking up) our rooms tend to get messy, as in hoarders messy. I can only say the mess is not that bad, and most people tend to clean up to some degree throughout the week. Of course some people also have so many articles of clothing they just wear their closet before doing laundry. All in all though, Wabash is a fairly clean place, especially Fiji.
