We attempted to be social last night, and ventured from our off-campus set up to a "Friday Night Extravaganza!!!" As our destination neared, the first people we saw were Ally and Lisa. We have to give them props because they warned us not to go. But in our attempt to be over-excited, over-enthusiastic, and over-adventurous freshmen, we decided to check it out anyway. Here is a list to sum it all up.
> 5,000 hormone-charged BYU freshmen, running around on a large grassy field playing get-to-know-you games.
> 5,000 hormone-charged BYU freshmen "boogie-ing" to "Low" by Flo Rida.
> 5,000 hormone-charged BYU freshmen pledging to "meet up with core group for dinner sometime next week, or attend their first exam in their underwear." (We didn't know things like Flo Rida and testing in under-garments were allowed here.)
> Taylor O. gave her number to a complete stranger, accepted a marriage proposal, and cartwheeled from one side of the track to the other. There is just something in the air down here.
> For one of the final "games" 5,000 hormone-charged BYU freshmen all made the biggest human circle we've ever seen and on count all ran into the middle, forming what would resemble a giant attempt at a mosh pit from high school prom. We know what you're thinking. "Mosh pit?! BYU is nothing like I thought it would be!" We were thinking the same thing. Flo rida, mosh pit, AND underwear all in the same night? But just when we thought these kids had stopped living up to the BYU rep, they all raised their arms and while jumping up and down, 5,000 hormone-charged BYU freshmen all chanted, in unison, "B-Y-U! B-Y-U! B-Y-U!" It was like a Skyline football game all over again.
> As we started heading for the edge of the group a nice young man belted over the chanting, "Anyone want to go crowd surfing?!" Taylor O. wailed, "Sure!" Now before you get too excited, she did not end up going. But the girl who did was dropped as soon as she was lifted. Apparently BYU students don't have much experience in this catagory. It's fine though. That's the way we like it.
> We finally broke away from the F.U.N. and met up with Ally and Lisa. We had a thoughtful chat on the track bleachers, and phoned our "wasted" friends from USU.
> We shared a relaxing walk with Jack back to our off-campus realm, and got this nice couple to document our experience. She had a hard time with the camera, bless her heart, but she is still a sweet spirit.
"This is what we imagine it being like for those who have lived a bad life on earth."---Ally & Lisa.
we love that---taylor & taylor.
