8 Lies We Tell Ourselves Before Going Out
The Walt Disney Company

1. I deserve to have fun tonight, I had such a rough week.

Meanwhile, the majority of your week was spent binge watching Netflix...

2. I’m not drinking anything after the pregame.

Yet once you get to the party...

3. I WILL NOT TALK TO HIM. OR LOOK AT HIM.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F25%2F636236456388963727-2097354812_giphy-3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=383&h=b0878d4726a40ff6586b567f7dcd08c4a69061719e9c3eb712ab4ebcb485203c&size=980x&c=1946103951 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F25%252F636236456388963727-2097354812_giphy-3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D383%26h%3Db0878d4726a40ff6586b567f7dcd08c4a69061719e9c3eb712ab4ebcb485203c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1946103951%22%7D" expand=1]

Magically at the party, however, as soon as you catch sight of him with another girl, it's all over.

4. I’m going to take such cute pictures at the party.

5. I’m totally not going to eat junk after tonight.

Later that night:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F25%2F636236457684465501-371094502_source.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=684&h=5f3ff7151e02bc74a847dc66e34128f187c1f338e5ff89e5597f1b86170ad160&size=980x&c=1117479806 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F25%252F636236457684465501-371094502_source.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D684%26h%3D5f3ff7151e02bc74a847dc66e34128f187c1f338e5ff89e5597f1b86170ad160%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1117479806%22%7D" expand=1]

6. I promise myself I’m not going to text or Snapchat anything I’d regret tomorrow.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F25%2F636236459154602036-1403601764_giphy-4.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=134&h=86ede34c9c608f88b83549000425c7043768beb069023e79df57424619be18d7&size=980x&c=1505980134 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F25%252F636236459154602036-1403601764_giphy-4.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D134%26h%3D86ede34c9c608f88b83549000425c7043768beb069023e79df57424619be18d7%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1505980134%22%7D" expand=1]

Until the next morning when you see the damage you have done.

7. I am not wasting my day tomorrow; I am going to wake up early and workout.

Tomorrow morning:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F25%2F6362364585896836322101897543_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=65&h=c089067aa70206af5e9d219b3ff6689815f4f7551c59dece0484db0b8e29599d&size=980x&c=3076970969 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F25%252F6362364585896836322101897543_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D65%26h%3Dc089067aa70206af5e9d219b3ff6689815f4f7551c59dece0484db0b8e29599d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3076970969%22%7D" expand=1]

8. Then after working out, I am going to be super productive and gets tons of work done.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F25%2F636236459684858329-901858703_giphy-1.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=174&h=7db5b70292f3603d6a5ef36c4be790ef8bec1cd8865ad20f87abffd7a6ba2756&size=980x&c=177070835 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F25%252F636236459684858329-901858703_giphy-1.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D174%26h%3D7db5b70292f3603d6a5ef36c4be790ef8bec1cd8865ad20f87abffd7a6ba2756%26size%3D980x%26c%3D177070835%22%7D" expand=1]

But at 2 o’clock the next day...
