I have a little trick to help during these lockdown-Saturday-night-party blues.
(While we pine over parties we went to in the past, and yearn for those that are yet to come).
I accidentally came across this great and super easy solution tonight, that can trick you into feeling like you are at a party. (Yes, keep reading!)
Put on music. This can be stereo, phone, record player, or like for our Saturday night tradition, YouTube.
This is great to do even if on your own since you can just keep selecting all your fave tunes, but even if in company this might be better, since the others will be selecting their own songs, and then it really will feel like a party!
Wait, that’s only half of it.
With the music still going, LOUD, start messaging people, preferably unrelated to each other… those who are reliable, who you know will respond… at least two people.
But as they say, the more the merrier.
This is what I did tonight. We had the music blasting, then on a whim I started messaging some family and friends… and before I knew it I was swivelling from one conversation to another, all while music was happening in the background…
And then lo and behold, a third group chat began, and I was like “WHO DO I TALK TO FIRST?”
And the music was so loud!
And it was so happening!
And then, it hit me… party vibes! 🤣
Well look, almost, not quite, but it’s the best that we’ll get, ’til we get to that super elusive, ‘there.’
