...just because it's been my goal since i started college to go to an ugly christmas sweater party, i'm going to document it. i don't know why, but it seems like talking about "parties" is taboo stuff in the blog world (regardless of whether someone does/doesn't engage in "party activities") so i hope you'll bear with me. i won't lie, 99% of the time i pass up a night out to skype or watch HIMYM or even do homework because those are things i prefer after a busy college week. but sometimes the opportunity presents itself and you're able to knock a college bucket list item off your list. plus, you can't stay in all the time can you? in terms of college parties, ugly christmas sweaters and mustache parties are prime and not to be missed. because sometimes it provides you the opportunity to meet a lot of true montana hipsters that are older than you and funny and entertaining and some of them are seven feet tall and you're able to say you have met someone an entire two feet taller than you. it was a night for the books. and the perfect last night in montana with a few of my favorite and best friends (and nerdiest, science majors make for the best friends).
