17 Things That Describe A Night In Downtown Grand Forks As Told By ‘The Office’
NBC

Let's be real, just about everyone has seen at least one episode of "The Office." If you haven't, shame on you, it is actually really funny. I finally decided to hop on the bandwagon and watch it and I realized just how much laughter I was missing out on.

But anyways, Grand Forks is a college town and you can bet that you will run into what feels like everyone you know while you're downtown. The college kids are downtown Thursday through Saturday, and I guarantee that one of these 17 things can apply to your night downtown, if not all of them.

1. When you realize that it is $1.50 Long Islands at O’Reallys

Giphy

Broke college students live for cheap alcohol.

2. How you feel being the only sober one at the bar

Giphy

Being DD and actually going downtown with your friends is not fun when you are the only sober one.

3. When the cute guy across the bar buys you a drink

Giphy

Girl, give him that cute smile and hopefully he will come talk to you. If not, at least you got a free drink.

4. When your favorite song comes on at Level 10

Giphy

You can bet every girl in there is singing at the top of their lungs.

5. When you run into your friends that you haven’t seen in forever

Giphy

*Screams of excitement*

6. When you see a girl crying in the bathroom over some stupid boy

Giphy

"Honey, it's okay, he wasn't worth your time anyways. You can do better."

7. Being the mom friend and making sure no one dies

Giphy

You are the mother duck and you need to make sure all your little ducklings make it home and in one piece. You are superwoman.

8. When the creepy guy keeps trying to hit on you

Giphy

Please stop. Please.

9. When you are hungry but you only have enough money to buy alcohol downtown

Giphy

Do not drink on an empty stomach. Do not do it.

10. When your friends are more intoxicated than you are

Giphy

You start thinking, "Damn, I really need to catch up."

11. When someone vomits and you turn into the mom friend

Giphy

There is just something about the smell of vomit that makes a person sober up.

12. Having to run to the next bar because the frozen tundra known as North Dakota doesn’t give a shit if you are cold 

Giphy

I bet you left your jacket at home because you figured the alcohol would keep you warm.

13. Making friends with random girls in the bathroom

Giphy

You will leave the bathroom feeling like you have five new best friends.

14. Seeing the ambulance outside Joe Black’s and being glad it isn’t here for you

Giphy

That was a close call. Hope that one survives.

15. When you get to Joe Black’s and it is way too crowded

Giphy

Mmmmm, yeah, maybe it is time to go home now.

16. When you realize you get to go to Red Pep after a successful night downtown with your BFFs

Giphy

It is the best drunk food.

17. Crawling into bed after the fun is done

Giphy

Place that glass of water and advil next to your bed — you'll need it in the morning. And who knows, you might wake up and regret everything you said and did the night before.

Enjoy your night downtown, but please find a sober ride home.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
