What happens when you visit Lubbock after graduating

I went to Lubbock this past weekend. It's where I went to school for four years.



Here's what happens when you're an alumna visiting your old stomping grounds Ugh, I already said this in the title:

1. You get to sit down at the football game.

My parents gave us tickets to the game, so we were like a) what's football and b) yes, I like Kliff Kingsbury.



But the best part was we sat down the entire time because we were in the old-folks part and I enjoyed it until we lost and then Kassidy had to teach me what a first down was.

2. You run into your professor and they tell you secrets.

We saw an old professor and he/she was really excited to see us slash he/she might have been drunk, I don't remember and he/she told us secrets and we were like, what is life.



3. The bartenders don't remember your order

There was a time toward the very end of my college career, where the bartender looked at me one day and said, "Paige, you want a Dos Equis?"



I was like, excuse me. Then I was like, of course.



Well apparently all of that went out the window because I had to say my order to the bartender like I was a freakin FIRST TIMER. EXCUSE BUT I BUILT THE BAR WITH MY OWN HANDS. Also, the DJ didn't play my request, so now I'm like, Oh. Am I not pretty/slutty enough for you?

4. You still run into people you don't want to see.

I saw Angry Elf's ex girlfriend, who has no idea I exist, but I know everything about her, including her major, her past internships, and how sad she was when Cory Monteith died. You would think seeing people you don't want to see would go away, but it doesn't.

I also saw Meal Plan (an 18-year-old who I flirted with just to see if I could bum off his meal plan), but he didn't see me. #ThankGod



5. 19-year-old frat boys interrupt your dinner

Speaking of robbing the cradle, Kassidy and I were having an intimate dinner at Gardskis when all of a sudden a 19-year-old comes up to interrupt my meal like I'm a freakin celebrity and asks if we were at his house party last night. No????????????? He then invited us to his fraternity's bar night and said we could get in even if we were minors. Kassidy and I were flattered.



6. I pissed a guy off

This is not alumna-specific because I pretty much piss people off all the time, anywhere I go. But he was a West Virginia fan and we were chatting, ya know how it goes, and he told me he has an aerospace engineering degree or something like that and of course I didn't believe him. He got mad and next thing I know he was telling me he was gay, which I just think was a defense mechanism. He then asked what I did for a living and then answered his own question with, "A stand-up comedian/someone who pisses people off," and I was like Um no, that's a side gig. I'm actually a model. He said, Must be a hand model and I was like ok???????????????



It went from 0 to 100 real quick. So sorry, y'all, but now I'm sure there's a WVU fan telling everyone how horrible Tech fans are, but was I really supposed to believe an aerospace degree???????

That was my weekend. Vote in the poll below.
