Facebook event pages are everywhere in college. Whether it’s an invite to an off-campus party or a fundraiser, you cannot ignore their presence. Recently, Facebook events have become weird, like “Keep Austin Weird” – weird enough for us to actually go to these events. Here’s a list of the strangest events coming up on Facebook.

1. We all shapeshift into Matthew McConaughey at the same time.


Alright, alright, alright. We really should not have to explain why this is relevant, because McConaughey is ALWAYS relevant. In an instant, you will transform from your average self into the sexy, iconic Matthew McConaughey you always wanted to be. We’re still not 100 percent sure if the McConaughey magic is really going to solve our problems, but it would be a lot cooler if it did.

When: Feb. 14 (How romantic?)
Where: Worldwide… and oh, what a world it will be.

2. Get together and have a good cry.

Grab some friends, some tissues and a carton of ice cream and let it all out. Conveniently planned for the beginning of the New Year, this public get-together will let you to cry over the fact that you already managed to break all of your New Year’s resolutions. And if that’s not enough to make you shed a dramatic single tear, just think of the upcoming semester. You’ll bawl your eyes out for hours.

When: Jan. 6
Where: Technically New Orleans, but we’ll be partaking in this one nation-wide.

3. The Notorious RBG Ball.

Tired of the patriarchy bringing you down? Then get down with Planned Parenthood to celebrate all things feminism in honor of women’s rights activist and Supreme Court justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Featuring live music from fem-fueled bands like ¿Que Pasa?, KB the Boo Bonic, and The Please Please Me, cover is $7 at the door or free with a stamp from the BossBabes ATX event.

When: Dec. 2
Where: The Spider House Ballroom (a personal favorite)

4. Garlic Bread Appreciation Conference

Pizza is always appreciated, but its sidekick, garlic bread? Not so much. Give garlic bread the attention you know it deserves by attending a conference to honor its garlicky glory. Just refrain from kissing anybody after attending.

When: Jan. 14
Where: Melbourne, Australia (Like kangaroos know anything about garlic bread?)

5. 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY: HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL DAY!!!

What? How old have we gotten? How has it been 10 years since Zac Efron crawled his way into our hearts by proving you can be both the star athlete and the star of the spring musical (yes, pronounce it music-CAL)? Re-watch, re-sing and re-dance to all three movies as your grown-ass self!

When: Jan. 20
Where: Your house (so no shame, right?)
