Attending Events: Your Younger Self Vs Your Older Self


Younger Self: Any party is fair game. Doesn’t matter if you don’t know the celebrant(s). Doesn’t matter what time the event is supposed to start, you’ll be there whenever you choose to show up. You could even show up at the last minute & still find a way to turn up, because you’re part of the ‘Party All Night‘ gang.

Older Self: If you’re not notified about the event weeks in advance, you’re not going anywhere. You have to know the celebrant(s). You’ve already decided the times you’re arriving and leaving. You probably won’t even spend that long at the event because you want to go home as soon as possible.



Younger Self: The more guests, the better. Even if it’s not your own event, you don’t mind squeezing into a hall with 100 of your closest friends, sweating and struggling for seats & water. It’s all part of the fun.

Older Self: You prefer intimate affairs. If your table and seat are not carefully marked out, the host will hear it from you. Infact, you’ll even send someone ahead of you to help reserve a seat, because we try to avoid headaches.


Younger Self: Venue is never set. Hangouts are on the spur of the moment and the venue can change to whichever happening spot you and your friends decide on. We’re talking 2 – 4 venue changes.

Older Self: Your friends had better decide before hand where you all are going. You won’t take them seriously otherwise. You don’t have the energy, time or fuel to waste jetsetting around the peninsula, just to look for a place to drink and take pictures. Actually, screw outside venues. Home chills all the way.


Younger Self: Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug! Who put these glasses here? Abeg commot am & bring another bottle osiso! Chug! Chug! Chug! Who cares where you end up tonight? The World is your oyster.

Older Self: Classy as F. You’ve finally mastered the use of wine and champagne glasses. You don’t gulp, you sip your drink like the old G you are. After drinking responsibly, you’re going straight home. It’s not even up for debate.


Younger Self: Any reason is basically an excuse to party. Birthday? Party. Got a new phone? Party. You bought a new pair of shoes? What better way to show them off than with a Party? YOLO!

Older Self: You’re only leaving the comfort of your home for a damn good reason. Birthdays, Weddings & Baptisms; The Holy trinity. Anything else, you’ll send them a check. Peace out.
