An acquaintance asked me to go to a dance at the college. The party was sort of slow going at first. One of the hosts went next door to hang out with a friend and left the party in the lurch. A bunch of people went outside to smoke. Later I realized there was a whole group hanging out on the back porch that had been there for hours before entering the house. That seems totally whack.
Standing around decorating went to a little bit of decorating before so many the one host left and many people went out to smoke. A few of us watched like 15 minutes of Mythbusters. I eventually got frustrated with no one playing the dance music our host had on her PowerBook. There was even this guy who plugged in his pseudo-iPod from Creative and was only playing classical music. I knew it was time to intervene. I looked at songs on his machine and did not find what I was looking for.
I looked on the PowerBook and found a mix that our host that left and her sister had made. That finally got people dancing, even people who had been hanging out on the back porch.
I know it's stupid, but i totally felt crushed when this cute girl came up to me and wanted to know what year I was and how old I was. She saw that I was out of place. II know that I am older than all of them, but hey I would not have even heard of this dance if it weren't for a person who belongs to the same student group that I do, the student group that put on this party, inviting me. The girl who was up in my face had been to many fewer group events than I.
Still, despite all of that. I know I am older than them and if she called me on whether I should be there and me friends from the group weren't around I'm not sure how it would go down. The worst part is that if she weren't attractive I don't think that I would have cared so much what she thought.
Maybe I should just be in my apartment sleeping but partying is a lot more fun. It was around 12:50 am when I left, so I had been around for almost 3 hours. I hardly left without staying a while. Whatever...
