Place: Doppio Zero (00), Coyote (night market area) It is kind of a problem that I cannot remember names...should get on that.
Time: 7:30 PM - 3 AM
Mood/Feels: Happy, learning-mood, elated, exhausted...
Note: I am writing this the night after this happened and honestly do not remember a lot..how sad. Thank goodness for pictures. But I cannot believe this all was just yesterday...wtf. So much is happening and has happened. I like force myself to keep up with my friends' lives whenever I get the chance which is rare...
Anyways, the important part is that it was just a really nice ACTUAL ladies night in Rome, just casual while telling stories about ourselves and stuff like that.
Real bonding time.
There was so much laughter and we are definitely going there again.
I had my first legit cocktail ever that night.
Tasted like a mango smoothie.
Yummy, but does not go well with food...I prefer food over drinks anyways.
We talked for hours and it was just amazing hehe
Afterward, we dropped by Bailey's place, chatted some more, and then went over to
hit the clubs because
the ladies were going to teach me
"how to club"
I have never clubbed before
and yes. I am Korean.
I seriously need to remember names...
And then as we were walking around, an Italian guy asked if he could buy us a drink.
Basically, he was trying to promote his club/bar that he works for with the promotional "Ladies Night" flyer. Something about 5£ for a wristband of an entry into 2 bars w/o fee and a free shot.
Talked to a half Korean, Half Brazilian Guy too who worked with them.
So, we did. Rum shot tasted disgusting.
But, here is the exciting part. It is like God seriously answers my silent prayers/thoughts especially on this trip. Because somehow everything that I think of and wish deep down, he grants it or just makes a way. There is always a reason for things and just...
Thank you God. Thank you Jesus. Thank you Lord.
So, I ran into a Korean girl! Like, honestly, I guess, this is the first time that I felt like a minority person. I am not used to being the only Asian or one of the few. And honestly, I remember not liking being amongst so many Asians. I wanted more friends of different countries, cultures, etc ...that were not Asian as well. And I love that I am getting that experience here because I love these ladies. But, a fellow Korean is always welcome!
Yppie: I know that this is going to sound really weird...but are you Korean?
Us: NOOOO WAYYY COME HERE!! *hug*
Me: KOREANS UNITE
Yppie: Oh my gosh you are like the first friendly Korean that I am meeting here!
*chat some more*
Her friends and my friends met and they were a quite diverse group as well all studying abroad as well from the University of Arkansas - Architecture.
We strolled over to Coyote and I guess that is where my first "club" and actual bar experience began. I mean it was alright. It was fun, but I feel that I would rather go out to a cafè and get something rather than pay so much for a drink that I will not even finish. I have already spent $645 almost here and it has not even been a week....
It wasn't even like I was trying to spend a lot. I have been trying to save because I know there are so much more things to do.
But, I digress.
So I got pulled in to dance since I was told that I would be taught and such and I really appreciated it and it was fun dancing with Mia and two of our program's boys.
Not gonna lie though. Kinda awk. the guys.
But honestly, it just felt like a lot of creepy dudes, loud music, second-hand smoke, headache, and drunk girls falling over themselves and breaking their heels. Not my thing.
I love being with the girls and honestly in college I never did this.
I am down to go out again and give it a chance maybe when tipsy, because then maybe it will be more fun, and also because I do not want to keep shutting this lifestyle down. I want to understand and I guess it is also cause I am legal here and will not be here again.
But I would really rather spend money and time out exploring the city and other cities.
So I am really excited that we chatted about that today.
(Will explain in another post)
I made this whole clubbing thing short and summarized, but honestly that is really all there is to it.
Also, I just don't find Italians that attractive still. I am sorry. I still only "feel" something for Asians.
Cannot help it. Not like I am racist or anything.
And also, I just miss that one special person even more that I am here now. Because I really wish that he could be here and experience this with me even if he may not feel that same way...
