17 Senior Year Activities To Do With Your Best Friends Before The Year Ends

17 Senior Year Activities To Do With Your Best Friends Before The Year Ends

Life can sometimes be so boring; so why not try these crazy things with your friends to spice things up?

As time has passed by in my high school years, I feel like I haven't really lived my life as a teenager. I've always wanted to go out with my friends and try the most craziest things ever, like skydiving as an example. Once high school ends and my college life starts, I believe that one day, I will truly begin to live my life to its fullest, and I can start by completing these thrilling and invigorating activities with my besties.

1. Go on a road trip with your besties.

A great way to bond with your companions is with a road trip! My friends and I have always talked about going on one together. We sometimes even suggest the option of driving to the beach for our senior trip.

2. Travel to a foreign country.

This very item will soon be crossed off my bucket list, because soon, I will be traveling to Europe with one of my friends. Traveling to a foreign country with others truly makes me feel independent. There's nothing I love more than to experience a new environment different from home.

3. Go dumpster diving.

I'm truly afraid of heights, but doing such a bold and heart-pumping activity with companions is exciting. Of course, you have to consider safe places to dumpster dive.

4. Go camping!

There's nothing better than spending some time out in the wilderness. There are places to hike and animals to see once you go outside. It just doesn't get any better than this.

5. Make a music video and post it on Youtube.

What better way to show everyone in the entire world how goofy you and your besties are than by posting a YouTube video of you all having fun? Who knows? Maybe you'll get famous one day!

6. Dye your hair together.

Dye your hair a crazy color like blue or red. Or if you and your friends are on the safe side, maybe dye your hair a more natural color like ash brown.

7. Get tattoos together.

It doesn't have to be extravagant; it can simply be miniscule. I've always fantasized about getting a small tattoo that holds a significant meaning in my life.

8. Have a paintball war!

Nothing says getting rid of your stress and anxiety like hitting others with paintballs. Plus, it's also a great way to specifically bond with each of your best friends when you're split into teams.

9. Binge-watch Netflix TV shows.

What better way to calm things down after a crazy day with your besties than to stay at home with hot chocolate and popcorn while watching Netflix?

10. Go to a haunted house together.

You can find out who's the chicken of the group and who's the one who would leave the others behind just to run away from that monster chasing you all.

11. Go to a carnival together.

Take some aesthetic pictures, and definitely eat all of the delicious food there. Oh, and of course go on the rides.

12. Learn how to surf together.

You may fall off the board sometimes, but at least you've got a friend to fall off the board with you.

13. Have a fashion show!

Because why not? You'll look good and still be having fun.

14. Travel to an aesthetic looking place just for a photoshoot.

A photoshoot has been the topic most discussed upon among my group. We've talked about multiple places to go, and we have yet to go somewhere. Taking pictures of each other is seriously fun, and it can be a way for your friend group to get closer.

15. Go mini-golfing.

Absorb nature as you golf with your friends. Maybe you can laugh at each other's bad golfing skills.

16. Go bowling with your own rules.

Bowling gets boring when you do it the right way. Once you make up new rules, that's when the fun begins.

17. Go tubing!

See the beauty of the sea with your closest friends and take pictures.

Thoughts That Go Through Your Head Daily When You're Socially Awkward

Prepare to feel uncomfortable

Oh, hello my name is socially awkward and I'm going to live in your head making every encounter with a human being as uncomfortable as possible. Now let's begin...

"Is that person waving at you?... ye... nope... HA gotcha!"

"This is definitely something a normal person would say. You should say it. Say it now so they will think you're funny."

"That's odd no one is laughing... do something with your hands."

"Oh no... silence..."

"Hmmm let's see, what social events do we have to avoid today?"

"Your phone is ringing!"

"Well looks like you're getting the hang of things so I'll just leave you to it."

5 Simple Ways To Keep Your Life's Bucket Full

The children's book "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids" by Carol McCloud teachers early elementary students what it is like to have their very own bucket

GPositive behavior is not practiced by many but preached by all. It is important to understand that everyone has an invisible bucket. The bucket may be emptied if you did an action that leads another to unhappiness. The key to life is happiness. Why not practice it?

The children's book "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids" by Carol McCloud teachers early elementary students what it is like to have their very own bucket. As an adult, it is important to be educated on how to treat others and fill another's bucket, whenever possible.

1. Say good morning

It takes two words. You could be out at the store, passing a classmate, or just wishing someone a good morning. Two words can make someone's dreadful day into a day worth living. Some people wake up on the wrong side of the bed and a simple greeting could help change their perspective.

Changing someone's perspective can alter their day. Have you ever thought, "Why is this person so mean... I didn't even do anything to them? A simple greeting could have changed the way they looked at their day. Be the person of change.

2. Be honest

I am sure you have told a lie. So what? Things happen and people tell a long tale or two.

But, in the bucket-filling world, you are dipping into another's bucket. You are trying to make yourself happy despite the lies you are telling. It is not good to lie and honestly turns out better in the end.

The best way to get along with people is telling them how you feel. Telling the person you do not like the way something is being handled or the way they act can help that person become someone you like... or at least tolerate.

3. Be careful what you say

When people post online, it could offend some while it may amuse others. It is important to understand that not everyone can take a joke. I have seen people get overwhelmed over content that may or may not involve them. Questioning online posts are ridiculous.

4. Engage in conversation

Is talking to people hard? Why not try and speak what is on your mind? It could be the hard truth, you being nice, or simply wanting to put yourself out there.

Make yourself known; you could be the talker of nothing or the talker of something. When you involve yourself in a conversation, make it memorable and unforgettable. Think before you speak and make sure you leave a lasting impression.

5. End the conversations

You want to leave a lasting impression. Make sure you end the conversation. Concise points leave a person with the acknowledgement that you cared about the conversation. Leaving your friends on "read" can leave them with the impression you don't care.

Putting friends off doesn't make you a good person either. Be there for your friends as much as they want to be there for you.
