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.

Dear Mom, From Your Daughter In College

Here are all the things our phone calls aren't long enough to say.

Dear Mom,

Do you remember when I was three and we would play together? It was the age of princesses and carpet that was actually lava, and you were the prettiest woman in the whole wide world. Do you remember when I was in high school and the world seemed too big and scary? You would know exactly when to take me on a mother-daughter date and have me laughing about anything and everything, and you were the smartest woman in the whole wide world. Now, I'm buried in homework and deadlines hours away from you and we don't get to talk as much you want, but you're still the prettiest, smartest woman in the whole wide world.

I'm sorry that I don't call you as much as I should, and you know a lot of what goes on in my world via posts and pictures. Our schedules just seem to never line up so we can have the three-hour conversations about everything like I want to. I know we don't agree on absolutely everything, but I cherish every piece of advice you give me, even though it probably seems like I'm hardly listening. I know that sometimes we get on each other's nerves, but thank you for putting up with me for all of these years. Thank you for listening to me cry, complain, question things and go on and on about how everything in college is. I know I don't come home as much as I used to, but I think about you all the time. After all, you're my first friend, and therefore, my best friend.

Thank you for celebrating my successes with me, and not downing me too hard for my failures. Thank you for knowing what mistakes I shouldn't make, but letting me make them anyway because you want me to live my life and be my own person. Thank you for knowing when to ask about the boy I've been talking about, and when to stop without any questions. Thank you for letting me be my crazy, weird, sometimes know-it-all self.

Thank you for sitting back and watching me spread my wings and fly. There is no way I could have known how to grow into the woman I am today if I hadn't watched you while I was growing up so I would know what kind of person I should aspire to be. Thank you for being the first (and the best) role model I ever had. You continue to inspire and amaze me every day with all that you do, and all that you are.

I don't know how I got so lucky to have a person in my life like you, but I thank the Lord every night for blessing me with the smartest, prettiest person to be my best friend, my role model, my confidant, my person and most importantly, my mother.


Your daughter

22 Signs The Girls You've Met In College Will Be Part Of Your Girl Gang For Life

To the lovely ladies I've met in college that I can never imagine my life without again


Let me just be the first to say, I honestly don't know how I survived the majority of my life without you guys.

Attending college out of state in a completely new area and not knowing a single soul, I was petrified of the idea of starting over. I had a great group of friends at home, and I wasn't ready to begin this new chapter of my life. Hearing my parents and family friends talk about the people they met in college only stressed me out even more because, what if I didn't meet "my people?"

Luckily, that's when you guys came along, and my life was changed forever.

1. You genuinely care about each other's happiness.

2. Talking 24/7 is absolutely necessary.  You basically have a 2nd boyfriend.

3. You know absolutely everything and more about each other...even the details that may be TMI.

4. Regardless of how dramatic it is, you can rely on one another for advice on absolutely anything.

5. You can't go more than 2 days without seeing one another...it's just not allowed. It feels like your 2nd boyfriend has mysteriously gone missing.

6. And when you go out together for a girls night, all hell breaks loose.

7. The best way to solve your problems is with each other, and a full glass of wine.

8. Somehow you lasted 18 years without them in your life, and you wonder every day how that was possible.

A friend like you is something I've always prayed to find, and I am so thankful I did.

9. You willingly shower each other with compliments like it is your job.

10. They give you that reality check every here and there when you are being more than overdramatic.

11. When something amazing happens, you immediately go to one another to celebrate.

12. They're always your support system no matter what.

13. They'll most likely be in your bridal party because they're the only people who will keep you mentally sane.

I wouldn't want anyone else beside me on my special day.

14. Staying mad at each other for long is just not even slightly possible.

15. You probably hate the same people, for the same reasons.

To the boy who screwed over your best friend, the girl who's secretly in love with your boyfriend, and the professor who gave you a bad grade, me and my best friend most likely talk about you!

16. No one will ever mistreat them, because they would have to go through you first.

17. You're right beside them when something intense is about to go down.

Neither of you will ever go through drama alone anymore, you've always got a go-to girl.

18. They're always loyal to you and your friendship, and fortunately, they're stuck with you forever.

19. Some of your best memories are with each other.

20. They always feel like sunshine when they're around.

The people who feel like the color yellow are the type of people you always want to keep in your life.

21. You will never allow a boy to make each other cry.

22. You remind them daily how much their friendship means to you.
