Your Unfiltered Stream Of Consciousness During A Night Out At Kilroy’s On Kirkwood

After your second long island, it can only go up from here.


You're sitting in class on a Friday, listening to the professor's repetitive monotone voice waiting for the clock to hit the exact time you can start zipping your backpack and zoom out. This doesn't end in a flash mob dance like in High School Musical though, instead, you hop on your Bird scooter and go to your second home, Kilroy's on Kirkwood for Friday after class. (FAC)

Ah, yes, Kilroy's on Kirkwood the place where IU college students can go and unwind with their best pals.

It starts off with the FBI agents, sorry I mean bouncers, approving your right to walk into Roy's palace, and then that's when things start to go south. (North in mine and most people's opinions though.)

The glowing neon "Kilroy's" light catches your attention behind the bar. You and your friends walk up and remind each other that this is a marathon, not a sprint, as Ashley orders a double tequila shot with lime and salt.

As the afternoon eventually turns into night, the bar fills as if you're at a Beyoncé concert rather than a college town bar. You overhear the loud yelling of "BRAAAAD," "Sup CHAAAAD," and "BRO, can I hit your Juul?!"

It's around 9 p.m. now, and you are on your third water long. Your friends and you have worked up some liquid courage to start dancing to "Sweet Caroline," as if you all haven't heard it 29,837,493,275 times before. Ashley is now screaming the song, and missing every lyric along the way.

You're living your absolute best life, and you don't think anything could possibly get any better but then… Ashley drunkenly mentions that she is craving some Roy's breadsticks. Your mouth starts to water and instantly agree with her responsible decision.

The breadsticks are sat in front of your face and the aroma itself is almost enough. You pull it apart and hot cheese and pepperoni fall out and you then have found your new favorite food.

It is now midnight, Ashley is currently on top of a table on the patio dancing as if she is in a Lil Wayne music video while the Brad's and Chad's are there with full support.

You send out texts that you will most likely regret in the morning, but hey that wasn't you talking, it was the half-off whiskey that made you do it.

2 a.m. rolls around, and everyone surrounding you are full of smiles and just pure bliss. The Uber pulls up, and you along with your herd of friends stumble into the car. Of course one of you have to say, "You been busy tonight?" or else was it even an Uber ride?

You soon realize that Ashley is nowhere to be found, and you see that KOK uploaded an Instagram picture with her and Chad with a caption that read "The best people at the best bar at IU," and they were exactly right. Indiana University wouldn't be Indiana University without Kilroy's on Kirkwood.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
