#80 Throw A Wild Party



Attempted Pyramid

Define wild. When some people thing of the term wild they imagine a huge group of people drinking and dancing and then other people think of undomesticated animals. But when I think of wild I imagine a large group of friends doing crazy things and having a ton of fun and under that definition that is how I completed #80 Throw A Wild Party.


Who: my parents, brother and 30 of my friends

What: end of the school year party at my house
When: the beginning of the school year through last Friday
Where: school and my house
Why: to celebrate a year of memories together and for surviving our freshmen year of high school

On the first day of freshmen year, I walked in a totally different person from what I am now. I walked in confused, anxious and terribly nervous. But after a few months past I began to morph in my new self, even though I lost a few friends along the way (maybe more than a couple), I gained a new totally awesome group of friends. Now I’m outgoing, strong-willed and just plain and simple happy. Specifically 3 girls have changed me, “Kathy”, “Doug”, and “Francis” (not real names) thank you so much and I love you guys!


When I arrived at my final days of school I knew a party must be thrown. For three reasons: one was to celebrate the end of school, two was to commemorate a great year of school and three was to see my friends one last time before I left for my cottage for 2 months.The next task after deciding the party should be thrown was to beg on my hands and knees to my parents to let me have it and finally after a week of deliberation they said yes and from there I began planning.


The party was set to be last Friday 5-8pm. At their party there would be a slip n’ slide, junk food galore and other games. The days leading up to it were stressful but in the end I managed to plan it, get all the stuff for it and invite everybody (35 people in all invited).


When Friday came the day was spent sprinting around and getting ready. Before I knew it, it was five o’ clock and people began arriving, once everyone had arrived (about 29 including my brother and his friend) the party officially began. Immediately people began sliding down the slip n’ slide, devouring the junk food and talking. We also attempted to make a pyramid (see picture) but it never quite worked out. By the time the 3 hours gone by parents were arriving, I was hugging everyone goodbye and wishing them a good summer, the food was gone, the slip n’ slide was about to fall apart and the yard was trashed. Once everybody was gone I spent the next hour restoring the lawn.


Now when I look back on it I’m thankful I did it. Plus the party went off with very few hitches and within my definition of wild this indicates a list item well done.
