Over the years, "Girls' Night Out" had become a ritual, where us Sista-friends got together for a much-needed unauthorized counseling session. This gathering was a place where we congregated to relax, relate, release- and it didn't hurt that there were always free-flowing drinks, bomb weed, and food for the soul.
We started meeting once a month for about an hour or so, but soon realized that with the stresses of the world, hectic home life, and I'm not even going to mention the forbidden four-letter word "LOVE"- and all the bullshit that comes along with that- monthly wasn't enough. We changed it to every other weekend and when that wasn't enough, we started doing all-nighters. Plus, the group started quickly multiplying.
GNO was the one night where we could freely put all of our cards on the table and release all our frustrations while still being accepted with all our flaws. It was about good old-fashioned gossip. We needed that moment to reflect while listening to other people's bullshit: it reminded us that ours might not be all that bad. It also allowed us to put down our mental baggage, even if just for a few hours. Even though we got on each other's last nerve most of the time, there was a shared love that only true friends would understand. this was our little slice of heaven.
