When there are too many people…(Is that a real thing?) what to do.
image

You know the feeling, a bit miffed at not being able to get around a group or mob of people while carrying your libations back to your table. What about when its gridlock for EVERYONE. Is that a real thing? It is. It is real when you are so overwhelmed with people all around you all of the time that you cant even think straight. Several social psychologist have found the frustration levels in an even minor pause or setback in your movement to a safe destination creates a high, if not dangerous level of anxiety that can result in saying or doing something you regret. Here are several ways you can pull it down a notch and make good decisions in dealing with body blockages in parties and crowds:

1. Take a deep breath. Sometimes, you might get lucky and get a contact high depending on your location, but the deep breath pulling oxygen into your system will help you get you under control in a situation where there is no control. Big first Step. (Scroll down for more…)

2. SMILE. Its a fact that the human brain issues dopamine at the mere suggestion of happiness which brings you a bit of piece. The simple smile (with your eyes no less) releases that loveryl chemical and helps you get calm and centered…especially with a nice boost in oxygen from a good deep breath.

3. Manners. Most don’t have them, and those that do recognize. Those that don’t might recognize and react like their momma taught them. Say, “excuse me, please” instead of “dang it! Move your rump! You jackalope” (or something similar). The reaction to polite manners vs demanding Aeronautical Hole, is so very different and can mean fast forward movement.

4. Bigger can be better. Find someone who is moving through the crowd. Just look for a Big aggressive person and let them take over parting the crowd. nothing wrong with being a minnow following a Shark…right?

5. Give up. Just lay down and throw the temper tantrum of the ages. Make sure you are loud and obnoxious enough that the music stops and everyone just turns to look at you. Red sirens and vomit with unintelligible ranting will easily get the crowd parted and you to a safe and secure seat. Most likely in a holding cell or padded room, but you will have some sort of success in getting out of the grid lock.

Good luck in shuffling through the dynamics of personalities that are inherently trying to prevent your forward movement in a sea of meat popsicles. We wish you the best of luck in securing your place in the successful group of winners that can manage crowd like pac man manages a heard of blinking ghosts. (so 1980s there).

5 Ways to Party Smarter

Partying seems simple. Get there, party hard, get epic. But the reality is, the true art of partying is something far more complex. To achieve the best Greatest Partier Alive (GPA) on your spring break, follow these five tips.

  1. Always Turn Up Together
    Spring Break is wild, and a lot of can happen over the course of a night. Believe me, I know from experience. Ever end up on a roof holding onto a shoe that wasn’t yours? I have, because I didn’t bring a friend. That’s why it’s always good to go a party friends; even if you lose em in the middle of the night, you’ll still find them in the end. Besides, it’s always good to save someone watching your back.
  2. Say NO to sketchy situations
    We’ve all been there: the one part where everyone in the house seems shady. Everybody seems to want to sell you something, or take you someplace where you don’t want to go. If your gut says no, you should listen. 99.9% of the time it’s right about danger, and parties go the wrong side of wild real quick. Stick to good times and chill people.
  3. Watch that Wallet
    Wallet, purse, baggie full of cash, fanny pack or anywhere in between, guard it with your life. If you think you’re going to be too buzzed to remember that, then take whatever you need for cash and ID and leave it at home. You don’t want to be the guy or gal calling the bar the next day hoping your stuff didn’t get snatched.
  4. Eyes on these IDS
    Ever lost your ID? It sucks doesn’t it? Especially when you’re down by the lake and you can’t get into your favorite bar. Your ID is your life out there in the scene, because without it, you’re just a nobody. And nobody likes being a nobody.
  5. Phone Home
    Let’s face it, nowadays your phone is your life. Between the Snap, Instagram, Twitter, and whatever else you’re into, your phone is the best thing you have in your pocket. But aside from being your social media go to, it’s also your lifeline at parties. Whether you need to call an Uber or get a friend to pick you up, your phone is always there for you. That’s it’s always important to keep track of your phone, because it’s probably the first thing you’re going to need at the end of the night. When in doubt, leave it to your most trusted friends.

Beer Pong Tips

1. Practice makes perfect

If you’re not good now, that’s ok. Practice makes perfect with any sport, even one as subtle as beer pong. Using water to practice at home or with friends is an easy way to master your shots and play styles.

2. Know your Buzz Level

In my experience, the best games happen when I’m in the right frame of mind. Some people make killer shots while having too much fun, and some people work better with a cold start. Regardless of your preference, know what your mental level is and watch it going into the game. You don’t want to have to call a celebrity halfway through because you’re mental toast.Read more..
