Last year on St. Patrick's Day, thousands of CU-Boulder students attended a massive party at the Varsity Townhouse apartment complex that resulted in multiple arrests, Project X-style videos and screaming headlines. This year, the St. Paddy's revelry appears to have been less concentrated but no less wild -- at least judging by posts on the CU-Boulder Confessions Facebook page.
How crazy did things get? We've photo-illustrated and ranked what struck us as the ten most memorable CU-Boulder confessions from the weekend. Count them down below.
Number 10: The wearing of the green "Tonight, a night that all students of CU should be in the spirit of St. Paddy's day, someone went after my boyfriend for having a certain hair style. Seriously? We live in Boulder, a beautiful, peaceful place. So why jump my boyfriend when he had a cool looking do in spirit of this great day?!? But where my confession comes in is that once he hit my boyfriend, I jumped on top of him and beat the fuck out of his face, bashing in my hand. I'm 4'9" and this dude was probably 6 feet tall. Another confession, I don't actually go here. I'm on spring break visiting my boyfriend. So thanks to the douchers who tried to beat up my boyfriend on my last day of spring break, and no, I'm not sorry that my small white ass completely beat your ass tonight...." Number 9: Chivalry isn't dead, just shy "Dear crying girl walking home fromPpearl, I asked if you were okay, and you said yes. I hope you're really okay! I woulda offered to walk you home but I didn't wanna seem creepy. Sincerely, Boy who cares." Continue to keep counting down our top ten St. Patrick's Day posts on CU-Boulder Confessions. Number 8: You deserve a break today "I just got a free drink and McFlurry from the McDonald's on Baseline. There was nobody at the first window to take my card and the poor guy at the second window seemed too flustered (or stoned...) to realize to charge me. After waiting forever for a simple order, when he just told me, "Have a good night!" I didn't even question it. I might have felt a little guiltier if I hadn't just spent 13 hours working on my day off and will continue that trend tomorrow. It doesn't quite make up for my missed St. Patty's, but it helps a little!" Number 7: A new variation on downward facing dog "Was so fucked up last night that I watched my friend do 'drunk, naked yoga' on top of half the cars on my street. To whoever owns a black Honda CRV parked on 11th, you might wanna get your car washed.... Shit got weird."

Party on, kids." Number 5: Leprechaun interruptus "My St Patrick's day was a complete bust. I just wanted to get hot, get drunk and flirt. But nooooo, shit had to go awry. So now I'm home alone drunk and my plan is to get high and eat french fries. Yay me." Continue to keep counting down our top ten St. Patrick's Day posts on CU-Boulder Confessions. Number 4: Blame the forest "Ya, so I just fucking backed MY BRAND NEW RANGE ROVER INTO A FUCKING TREE. Who puts a tree at the end of a driveway?" Number 3: Outsiders not invited "Some pussy at the UMC stop was being a fucker and starting shit with everyone. He had straight coke hair and started acting like a pussy and my girlfriend punched him in the face like five times while his little bitch friends tried to intervene and a huge brawl happened. I don't think he was from around here, or I'm gonna fuck him up when i see him." Continue to keep counting down our top ten St. Patrick's Day posts on CU-Boulder Confessions. Number 2: Happiness is a full bottle "Getting started on St. Paddy's by doing what makes me happy -- drinking wine and posting to CU Confessions in the shower. Do whatever makes you happy today, my fellow Buffs!" Number 1: No apologies "My BFF and I just showed our tits to a guy and a girl in exchange for their Gatorade bottles full of vodka-tang mixture. We regret nothing."
