10 Things To Do For Your BFF Date

10 Things To Do For Your BFF Date

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.

I Blame My Dad For My High Expectations

Dad, it's all your fault.

I always tell my dad that no matter who I date, he's always my number one guy. Sometimes I say it as more of a routine thing. However, the meaning behind it is all too real. For as long as I can remember my dad has been my one true love, and it's going to be hard to find someone who can top him.

My dad loves me when I am difficult. He knows how to keep the perfect distance on the days when I'm in a mood, how to hold me on the days that are tough, and how to stand by me on the days that are good.

He listens to me rant for hours over people, my days at school, or the episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' I watched that night and never once loses interest.

He picks on me about my hair, outfit, shoes, and everything else after spending hours to get ready only to end by telling me, “You look good." And I know he means it.

He holds the door for me, carries my bags for me, and always buys my food. He goes out of his way to make me smile when he sees that I'm upset. He calls me randomly during the day to see how I'm doing and how my day is going and drops everything to answer the phone when I call.

When it comes to other people, my dad has a heart of gold. He will do anything for anyone, even his worst enemy. He will smile at strangers and compliment people he barely knows. He will strike up a conversation with anyone, even if it means going way out of his way, and he will always put himself last.

My dad also knows when to give tough love. He knows how to make me respect him without having to ask for it or enforce it. He knows how to make me want to be a better person just to make him proud. He has molded me into who I am today without ever pushing me too hard. He knew the exact times I needed to be reminded who I was.

Dad, you have my respect, trust, but most of all my heart. You have impacted my life most of all, and for that, I can never repay you. Without you, I wouldn't know what I to look for when I finally begin to search for who I want to spend the rest of my life with, but it might take some time to find someone who measures up to you.

To my future husband, I'm sorry. You have some huge shoes to fill, and most of all, I hope you can cook.

5 Tips To Help You Feel Better If You're Sick

A few helpful tips if there's a bug going around.


Not to brag, but I don't get sick very often, maybe once a year. When I do find myself a little under the weather, there's a few things I like to do for a faster recovery. I have no idea if any of these are 100% accurate, but I'd like to think they do. None of these will immediately make you feel better, but they'll help quicken the process.

Drink lots of water.

This one is a no-brainer, but it can be hard to do sometimes. I know when I'm sick, I definitely don't think about it. Water can help flush toxins out of your body, makes you hydrated, and can help you feel more awake and energized! If you're not a huge water drinker like I am, Tea also helps.

Stay home.

If you're sick, it's honestly better if you just take a day off and focus on feeling better. If you're worried about going to school or work, it's better that you don't spread anything. Let me just say, I'm fairly certain the last time I caught something was because someone behind me in a class was coughing through the entire lecture.


This one goes with the last point, but sleeping will help your immune system fight off any infections. It's good to take some time off and get any extra sleep you can.

Clean everything.

I like to wash all of my clothes and bed sheet, because they're what I wear and touch the most, especially my pillow cases. This will help get rid of some germs and stop them from spreading. It's also good to disinfect anything you touch often, like doorknobs and table surfaces.

Take medicine.

This one also sounds like a no brainer, but seriously if you expect to feel better soon you should be taking some sort of medicine. At the very least, it'll help with your symptoms, so you're not couching or sneezing every couple minutes.
