Two weeks ago I was visiting my close friend Karen just to hang out and watch some movies. She is a really good friend and she can immediately tell if something is wrong. I don’t know, maybe I was just exhausted by working so much lately that I really seemed to be a little bit grumpy. I know, it was not really fair to act like that to karen but she is the only one who will understand me. She told me I needed some distraction of my workaholic life and showed me a flyer of a big theme party. Karen wanted me to join her to this event, since she was already invited by other friends. I was so excited! This party was exactly what I needed at the moment, so I said yes.
That following weekend on a Saturday we met at Karen’s place to get ourselves ready. The theme of the party was black jack, so Karen and I decided to wear matching costumes. Karen wore a black farmer’s outfit and I dressed as a black queen and it was hilarious. At around 8 we went heading to the event, which was located in the centre of London. I must say, I didn’t expected it to be this crowdy, but it really looked like all the citizens of London were waiting to get inside. It took us 30 minutes to get in and that really made me a little bit grumpy, again. I felt completely different after we entered the mainstage, because the surrounding was so amazing! I loved everything about it!
Once inside we met the rest of the girls, who were waiting for us at the mainstage. There were farmers, queens, kings and even people who were dressed as an ace. The Ace costume was too difficult for me, so I passed that one. There were even firespitters, roulette tables everywhere and of course: so many blackjack tables. I immediately decided to give it a shot and took a seat at one of the tables. Unfortunately the luck wasn’t really in my favor so I left the table without any money. Nevertheless, we decided to just have a good time together and went to the dancefloor. It was so nice to dance the night away with the girls. This party was just the best party i’ve ever been.
Now i’m feeling so much better. Sometimes you just need to find a good distraction to make yourself happy again. This Blackjack party was a great success and everybody seemed to love it. The friends of Karen are great and I really wish we can hang out more. Next week we’re going to another and i’m really looking forward to go! This party doesn’t have a special thema like the other party did, which is really a shame. I really like to dress up and be silly for one night. Still I believe this party will be great as well, especially when I can go with my friends.
