The good thing about having access to the metro? Having access to the District! This Columbus Day weekend Pauly D, the Jersey Shore phenomenon, came to Fur Nightclub to present his music mash-ups. Whether or not you’re a fan of the Shore, Pauly is indeed an amazing DJ. So, my floor mates and I got tickets, grabbed the bus, mastered the metro, and found ourselves immersed in the scene!
With fist pumping all around you, people smiling and jumping up and down, and everyone screaming at the top of their lungs to their favorite pop song, there is something for everyone in D.C, and this past weekend was yet another celebrity!
So perhaps clubbing isn’t your scene, or perhaps you’ve never metroed before. My piece of advice is to be open-minded and try new things; more often than naught, there are other GMU students heading to the same evening events in DC, and like myself, you might even recognize some faces! Furthermore, even if you’ve grown up on the metro and assumed the position of designated metro navigator like myself, you learn more each time you use public transportation. For instance, in the past month or so I’ve been an official college student here in VA, I’ve learned the tricks: The bus colors, times, stops, the Smartrip system, and even that the Cue bus is free with a Mason ID!
In conclusion, college is what you make of it. If you work hard in your classes, or see a professor/teacher’s assistant when you have questions, you will see your energy paid off. If you allot some time to befriended the people on your floor, you’ll probably end up learning about yourself, others, and taking adventures all across the city!
