Quality time with your even better friends

Everyone needs some good quality time with their best friends, but sometimes it can be hard to decide what to do on a BFF date. Have you ever wondered what to do for those times when you do not want to go out and party, but still want to have a fun night? Here is a list of activities and places that are perfect for best friend time, either when you want to go out or when you want to stay in.

1. Movie Night

A movie at the actual theatre or in your room is a great way to spend a night in, and have quality bonding time. At the theatre, popcorn and snacks can be expensive, so I recommend eating beforehand. Of course, movie choices can be overwhelming, but classics and musicals are usually good choices.

2. Bike Rides

Not only can you enjoy the environment and beauty of nature, you can also enjoy the company of your best friends. Plus, most places have bike racks, so you can take your bike to a café or restaurant that you have wanted to check out. Even better, you and your friends get a great workout, too!

3. Venting Walks

Oftentimes when I am studying, my friend and I will take a venting walk to just give our brains a break and to feel better. Sometimes all it takes is a good venting session to feel like a weight has been lifted from your shoulders. Having someone who cares about you and truly listens to you is comforting.

4. Shopping

Everyone needs a little retail therapy, and having someone who knows what looks good on you and what clothes you already have is a good voice of reason to have while shopping. And, you do not always have to go to the mall, try looking up thrift stores, consignment shops, and farmers markets. That way your retail therapy and best friend date is an adventure.

5. Baking All The Things

Food brings people together. We all want to try making those dishes from the Tasty videos, so why not go to the grocery store and try it out? Especially if baking and cooking is your thing, it is even more fun with your best friend.

6. Sporting Events

Whatever event you attend, whether it's a college football game or your local soccer team, sports bring friends together through spirit and competition. Especially if you all are cheering for different teams, break out your favorite jersey and yell until your voices are hoarse.

7. Concerts

Music is a language in and of itself, and sharing that experience with your BFF is something you will never forget.

8. Trivia

A lot of local bars have designated trivia nights, so grab some girls and test your knowledge. Who knows, maybe your expertise in Disney movies might just serve you and your team well.

9. Wine Night

After a hard week or just for a good time, wine nights are a fun way to relax and have quality girl time. Wine night is great for catching up with friends or enjoying a movie. Whether you are a red or white wine kind of person, the choice is all yours. I hear Trader Joe's has a deal where you can buy multiple bottles for an inexpensive price!

10. Go to the Club (Finna Get Crunk)

We all have those times when we need to go out and dance our hearts out, and going to the club is always an adventure. I like getting ready to go out more than actually going out, because you swap clothes and ask for makeup advice from the people who know you the best. Of course, dancing with your friends is always fun too. Make sure you and your friends have a plan and always stick together.

To The Boy Who Will Love Me Next

If you can't understand these few things, leave before things get too involved

To the boy that will love me next, I need you to know and understand things about me and my past. The things I have been though not only have shaped the person I’ve become, but also sometimes controls my life. In the past I’ve been used, abused, and taken for granted, and I want something real this time. The guys before you were just boys; they didn’t know how to treat me until it was too late. They didn’t understand how to love me, until I broke my own heart. Before you truly decide to love me I want you to understand these things.

When I tell you something, please listen.

I’m my own person, I want to be loved a certain way. If I ask you to come over and watch movies with me please do it, if I ask for you to leave me alone for a few hours because it’s a girl’s night please do it. I don’t just say things to hear my own voice, I say things to you because it’s important to my life and the way I want to be loved. I’m not a needy person when it comes to being loved and cared for, but I do ask for you to do the small things that I am say.

Forgive my past.

My past is not a pretty brick road, it is a highway that has a bunch of potholes and cracks in it. I have a lot of baggage, and most of it you won’t understand. But don’t let my past decided whether you want to love me or not. My past has helped form who I am today, but it does not define who I am. My past experiences might try and make an appearance every once in a while, but I will not go back to that person I once was, I will not return to all that hurt I once went though. When I say those things, I’m telling the complete and honest truth. I relive my past every day, somethings haunt me and somethings are good reminds. But for you to love me, I need you to accept my past, present and future.

I’m just another bro to the other guys.

I have always hung out with boys, I don’t fit in with the girl groups. I have 10 close girlfriends, but the majority of my friends are guy, but don’t let this scare you. If I wanted to be with one of my guy friends I would already be with him, and if you haven’t noticed I don’t want them because I’m with you. I will not lose my friendships with all my guy friends to be able to stay with you. I will not cut off ties because you don’t like my guy friends. I have lost too many buddies because of my ex-boyfriends and I promised myself I wouldn’t do that again. If you don’t like how many guy friends I have you can leave now. Don’t bother trying to date me if you can accept the fact I’m just another bro.

I might be a badass, but I actually have a big heart.

To a lot of people I come off to be a very crazy and wild girl. I will agree I can be crazy and wild, but I’m more than that. I’m independent, caring, responsible, understanding, forgiving, and so such more type of woman. Many people think that I’m a badass because I don’t take any negatively from anyone. Just like we learned when we were younger, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all.” Most people can’t do that in today’s world, so I stick up for myself and my friends. I don’t care what anyone thinks about me, or their option on how I live my life. The only thing I care about is being able to make myself happy. Even though I’m an independent woman, understand that I do have a big heart. Honesty when I truly care for someone I will do just about anything they ask, but don’t take advantage of this. Once you take advantage of this part of me, all respect will be lost for you.

I’m hard to love.

Sometimes I want to be cuddle and get attention, and sometimes I don’t want you to talk to me for a couple hours. Sometimes I want you to take me out for a nice meal, but sometimes I want a home cooked meal. Every day is different for me, sometimes I change my mind every hour. My mood swings are terrible on certain days, and on those days you should probably just ignore me. I’m not easy to love, so you’ll either be willing to find a way to love me, or you’ll walk out like so many others have.

I’m scared.

I’m scared to love someone again. I’ve been hurt, heartbroken, and beat to the ground in my past relationships. I want to believe you are different, I want to hope things will truly work out, but every relationship has always ended up the same way. I’m scared to trust someone, put my whole heart into them, just to be left and heartbroken again. I sick and tired of putting my whole body and soul into someone for them to just leave when it is convenient for them. If you want to love me, understand it won’t be easy for me to love you back.

When “I’m done.”

When I say “I’m done” I honestly don’t mean that I’m done. When I say that it means I need and want you to fight for me, show me why you want to be with me. I need you to prove that I’m worth it and there’s no one else but me. If I was truly done, I would just walk away, and not come back. So if I ever tell you, “I’m done,” tell me all the reasons why I’m truly not done.

For the boy who will love me next, the work is cut out for you, you just have to be willing to do it. I’m not like other girls, I am my own person, and I will need to be treated as such. For the boy that will love me next, don’t bother with me unless you really want to be with me. I don’t have time to waste on you if you aren’t going to try and make something out of us. To the boy who will love me next, the last thing I would like to say is good luck, I have faith in you.

Why Ignorance In Our Country Is Not Bliss

And it never will be.

77
views

The saying ignorance is bliss is a bunch of crap. Ignorance is ignorance.

With everything going on in our country, I think it is very important for us to be educating ourselves.

You don't trust the news? Do your own digging.

You don't understand? Do some research.

You don't have the same perspective? Share it.

You only have your religious beliefs to base your knowledge? Learn before you judge.

We live in a scary world today. People judge others they've never met or before they've ever heard their story. People involve themselves in matters that they shouldn't be involved in. People are trying to regulate other people's bodies.

People don't want to learn about the issues they so strongly believe in. People don't want to hear the other side. When did party affiliation become more important than being a human being? When did men get the power to decide what women can do with their bodies? When did we stop being compassionate? When did we stop being decent human beings?

I don't want to live in a world where I have all these questions.

I don't want to live in a world where a judicial system will convict a woman who got an abortion after she was raped, but won't convict her rapist.

I don't want to live in a world where my social media timeline makes me want to cry.

I want to live in a world where everyone's opinion matters, not just the one you agree with.

I want to live in a world where everyone's voice is heard equally, not just the one's in power.

I want to live in a world where everyone's story is taken into consideration, not just the one's the government wants you to hear.

I want to live in a world where I can raise a young girl and not be afraid for her.

I want to live in a world where we do good.

I want to live in a world where we have differences, but that doesn't make us any less equal.

I want to live in a world where we don't judge before we know.

I want to live in a world where religious beliefs are respected.

I want to live in a world where it doesn't matter what political party you are.

I want to live in a world where people see right from wrong.

I want to live in a world where I am not afraid.

What kind of world do you want to live in?
