Another weekend, another debate about going out or staying in. The struggle that goes on inside our heads is real and one we battle with on a weekly basis.

Do we choose to catch up on much needed sleep or do we ignore that and let loose, letting the stress of the work week go?

You don’t want to miss out on the fun your friends are having, but at the same time, you are f*cking exhausted. I mean, we aren’t as young as we used to be (Since when are our 20s considered old?) and finding the energy at times can seem impossible.

It’s difficult to go out on a Friday since you have basically been awake since 7 am, worked for an entire day and then must gather the energy to actually go out until 2 am.

The struggle is real and today we are going to look into the love/hate relationship we females have with going out:

1. Showering: Hate

By now everyone who’s read my articles knows exactly how I feel about showering — I f*cking hate it. Don’t misread this; just because I hate it doesn’t mean I don’t do it. I do shower and the process afterwards physically pains me. It takes forever especially if you’re shaving your legs and, let’s be honest… if you’re going out, you should be shaving.


2. Stress reliever: Love

Praise the Lord, the work week is over. It’s finally time to look at something other than a spreadsheet and actually have fun. So what if you didn’t finish everything you needed to. You can worry about that on Monday, but for now, work is over and you are completely checked out.


3. You basically are dedicating the following day to a hangover: Hate

There’s basically a 100 percent chance you are going to feel like sh*t the day after going out. Sure, you may have thought you’d be hitting the gym at 10:00 am, but when that alarm goes off in the morning, you know you’re hitting the snooze button. The day after going out is where productivity goes to die.


4. The opportunity to meet new people: Love

Who doesn’t like meeting new people? You know where you aren’t going to meet anyone new? Curled up in your bed with Netflix. Stop complaining that you hang out with the same people and get yourself out there!


5. The 99 percent chance that you will break your diet: Hate

tumblr_inline_milbscxsss1rnvwt1

You may think the calories don’t count while you’re intoxicated and stuffing your face, but you’re in for a rude awakening come the following morning when you feel gross, bloated and have pizza underneath your nails.


6. You reunite with your friends: Love

OMG! It’s been a whole week since the last time you hung out with your friends. It’s difficult to make time for them during the week because of hectic work schedules. But come the weekend, everyone is finally free.


7. You end up spending money you don’t have: Hate

I'm on a Budget

“Help me I’m poor,” said every post grad, every weekend. You know you can’t afford the round of tequila shots you just ordered, but honestly, when has that ever stopped you?


8. You don’t get laid by staying in: Love

Do you really need any more motivation to go out?


9. The process of figuring out your plans: Hate

tumblr_lta1haAvl21qzku76o1_500

From Gchat messages, to group chats — the influx of options never seems to fade. The anxiety of making plans is enough to drive you to stay in.


10. An excuse to go shopping: Love

tumblr_llmnpkcuH91qaillno1_500

A night out basically justifies a shopping trip, especially if you “don’t have anything to wear.” And who doesn’t love rocking a new outfit? Exactly.


11. The appeal of the alternative: Hate

tumblr_inline_mo588ibaGH1qz4rgp

Sleep: the unattainable adult dream. It’s so tempting to stay in, but you know you will never cave and actually listen to your body’s immune system begging for a break.


12. Alcohol basically solves all your problems: Love

giphy

Is there any problem getting drunk can’t solve? If there is, please let me know because I have yet to encounter one.


13. You know you’re getting a sh*tty night’s sleep: Hate

no-sleep

The sleep you get after a night of binge drinking is never a good one despite how long it may last. The more you drink, the earlier you wake up — and a good three hours later, you know you will be combatting the headache of death.


14. Dancing on elevated surfaces: Love

tumblr_lgj8y2CXg91qbjuneo1_500

Sure, we know we shouldn’t be dancing on tables, but isn’t that what makes it fun? We grab our girls and hoist each other up and dance around until the first one falls down.


15. The embarrassment that is sure to follow: Hate

fool-gif

Why would you ever think it was a smart idea to dance on a table? Next time you won’t make this childish mistake.


16. Photo proof we actually went out: Love

If you went out at night and didn’t mupload it, did the night ever really happen? Sometimes this is a good thing because you can totally just re-wear the same outfit the next night.


17. Dealing with FOMO: Hate

tumblr_m68k8oL1sq1ro2d43

If you don’t go out, surely you are going to feel as if you missed out on the greatest night ever. Regardless if this statement is true or not, your friends aren’t going to admit that their night was a bust.


18. Being able to gossip at brunch about what happened the previous night: Love

tumblr_m88068Op571qh0b3jo2_r1_500

Isn’t this why brunch was invented? I mean what else are you supposed to talk about besides the antics of the previous night?


19. The expectations we have: Hate

anigif_enhanced-buzz-27141-1368243567-6.gif?w=640

If you are going to actually make the effort to go out, don’t you expect the night to be awesome? Too bad everyone knows that once you expect something, the opposite will probably happen.
