1. You’re curious.

The unknown doesn’t scare you. In fact, it excites you, and you want to learn all you can about the mysterious ways of the world.

2. You frequently experience wanderlust.

You constantly want to explore the world around you, and if there’s any travel opportunity presented to you, you’ll take it.

3. Monotony bores/scares you.

You’re not very fond of the idea of a 9-5 office job every day. You crave freedom, excitement, and the unknown. The idea of doing the same thing each and every day sounds boring and/or frightening or appalling. Therefore…

4. You can’t sit still.

For you, it’s hard to stay in one place for very long. You itch to move around. Once you become familiar with an area, job, or other situation, the monotony becomes boring, and you’re ready for something new and exciting again.

5. You’re a dreamer.

You have big plans for the future, and you’re always plotting your next escapade. You frequently daydream about where you’ll go and what you’re going to do, and you get very excited about it.

6. You’re a doer.

You have every intention of making those dreams of your come true, one way or another. Once you put your mind to something, there’s no stopping you.

7. You’re a quick learner.

For you, it takes little to no time to adjust to a new situation or location, and you’re very observant of the culture and the people around you.

8. You’re independent.

You don’t mind being on your own. You’re happy to leave the familiar world behind and trek to unknown territories in search of challenges, answers, and limitless opportunities.



So what are you waiting for? Go out and live life to the fullest!

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.
262208

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

5 Things To Do In Columbia, South Carolina, To Keep You Entertained

It's bigger than you'd think.

Growing up in the state of South Carolina, I'd been to Columbia lots of times but I never really got to experience the sights and sounds quite the way I do now that I'm in school here. That being said, I feel like I've gotten to check some cool things in the past three years and I'd like to recommend some to you!

1. Get Coffee!

Obviously, we have a trillion Starbucks, but I mean try out some of the other, more localized coffee shops such as Drip, Immaculate Consumption, Cool Beans, Zombie Coffee and Donuts, and the list goes on. And again, while we all love Starbucks, it's good to try new things, especially locally based things that put money back into your economy and locally sourced coffees.

2. Catch Some Baseball!

We have our lovely Gamecocks in action basically every weekend, and the SEC season is underway so there will be some talented teams rolling into Columbia in the next few weeks to take on the Gamecocks. We also have the Columbia Fireflies in action pretty soon, so go check them out as well. Don't forget your glove!

3. Brunch!

My friends introduced me to some really great places to have brunch. I definitely think Tazza Kitchen is my favorite but there are so many great restaurants to explore throughout the city that have brunch food and drink specials! Also, it's a nice way to kick off or end your weekend surrounded by food and people that you care about.

4. The Great Outdoors!

There's always something to do outside! For the most part, we have great weather, so outdoor activities are a must! And we have various festivals that come and go throughout the year. We also have lots of parks and rivers for walking, running, kayaking, swimming and more!

5. Museums!

I know everyone thinks museums are lame but I don't! So, we have plenty of things to look at and take in around Columbia! We have a children's museum for the younger crowd, in addition to the Columbia Museum of Art and the South Carolina State Museum. I actually used to go to the state museum a lot as a kid with my parents. There are also other smaller places around Columbia and on campus to check out if you're into history like I am!

This is only a small list of the attractions in Columbia. For all the trash I talk about this state and about this city, it does have some pretty loveable things. You can eat your heart out, learn, cheer on your favorite team and that could only be day one.

If you have any other suggestions of things to do or would like to request me as your personal tour guide, let me know!
