A key quality that allows a college female to be identified as a SWUG is being single. February 14th is a day dedicated to those who are #blessed with being in a relationship with another human, and it’s just around the corner.
As a Brown University SWUG, Valentine’s Day is usually an excuse to stuff my face with overpriced chocolate from the Thayer Street CVS, and to wait for my non-single friends to return with leftovers from their free romantic dinners on Federal Hill. However, this Valentine’s Day falls on a Saturday, which offers a number of opportunities for all the Brown SWUGs like me. And forces you to wear something other than your pajamas all day.
Why is a SWUG on V-Day different from all the other single ladies? We SWUGs are incredibly seasoned in the art of single’s activities: white wine, Netflix, and finishing a Ben & Jerry’s pint in record time. Therefore, we need to broaden our horizons, expand our palettes, and put our dear friend Netflix away for just one evening. It’s a Saturday night, girls. Get off the couch, put on your slutty favorite top, and give Cupid the finger on your way into the bar.
Calling all SWUGs of Brown: Put down the pint of Half Baked, take that tequila shot, and most importantly: treat yo self.
If you’re a SWUG and in dire need of plans for this Saturday, here are a few suggestions:
- Get a slice of chicken-bacon-ranch from Antonio’s for dinner
- Get a group of SWUG friends and head to Providence Place to see Fifty Shades of Grey
- Indulge in a glass (or four) of a pricier wine than you’d usually drink
- Finish that bottle of wine, Über to Euphoria and start (or continue) to senior scramble
