Soooo, when I was in college, my friends and I had a little celebration, a mini-New Year's if you would, at the beginning of EVERY month(at least when school was in session). Oh how I miss that ritual! It was really dope, no matter what was going down; papers, projects, mid-terms, finals, hook-ups, break-ups, make-ups, we were all getting together ("we" meaning a good amout of School of Music students), even if just for 15 minutes(it was an all out bruhaha, but people would trickle in and out depending on what the nest day held in store for them), though a power-packed 15 minutes, to count down and ring in the New Month! We would hijack the house of whoever lived off campus, decorate - were talking balloons, confetti, streamers, the whole nine yards; cook, bake loads of desserts, crank the sound system, and have ourselves a jolly good time. Usually someone would even bust out an instrumental rendition of Auld Lang Syne. TONS OF FUN!!! Me and one of my best Gyrl's, who find herself now waaaaayyyy on the Westcoast(Do It Big T!) keep the memory alive with monthly midnite texts, but nothing could replace that time and that place! It was really a great way to break the monotony of the week 'ya know? I mean living in NYC, I never feel that need anymore, but I HIGHLY reccommend the New Month countdown and mini partaaaay to any of the Gyrls and guys currently pursuing higher education to get out of that study rut, or anyone who bascially just wants to liven things up! It really energizes your month, helping you let off the steam of the prior month, and kick off the new one with friends and a refreshed outlook, believe me...I don't know how I would've survived Undergrad w/o them???
