Sixth Form Party
During the last couple of weeks we have been urged by both teachers and fellow students to attend the “All around the world” sixth form party Tuesday 2. of October. Our expectations were sky-high, seeing as we have the same type of party’s home in Oslo, called “revyfest/revvyflæ”. Everyone attends, we have a theme, and we also rent a night club – but, it turned out there are still a few differences.
Some of the Norwegian girls had forgotten to buy tickets, and had to show up early on the night of the party to get a hold of some. Unfortunately for the girls, the club didn`t open at 7 after all, nor at 8, so after having camped outside for two hours with more and more people coming, the security guards finally came and began throwing people around. That was when the fun started.
People were in a good mood and very eager to get in, especially the boys, and we were pushed, pulled and stumbled upon until we finally were in the front of the line. We were then told by some highly unpleasant security guards to get in the back of the line again, and let the people with tickets in first. Our good mood was suddenly not as good anymore.
Although we were all a bit tired by then, we have to admit, we were pretty impressed by some of the costumes, like on guy dressed completely in black stockings. Like literally. From head to toe. We also saw people dressed as Norwegians (Scandinavians, but honestly, why dress up as a Danish person when you can be a Norwegian??), Mexicans and a huge number of people dressed as Englishmen, which was kind of a bummer. A number of English girls also seemed to have forgotten their trousers at home this particular evening, which left us a bit puzzled.
After a couple of hours of queuing, we were (well, some of us) finally let in, and were met by a crowd of dancing sixth forms looking like they had the time of their lives. It was pretty cool, with loud music (admittedly from the early nineties). Just the rush of joy from finally getting in was enough to make our night. After a couple of hours we were feeling like we’d had enough of dancing and the huge crowd of people, so we went home for the evening with tired feet, and ready for the English test the following day.
Thank you for a fun and interesting night with new friends from the hours of queuing, and ravers on the dance floor.
To our Norwegians at home: Vi savner OHG-familien og våre enestående revyfester.
