9 Things To Do On FaceTime With Friends

9 Things You Do When You FaceTime Your Best Friend

It can get interesting.


When you live several hundred miles away from your family and friends, FaceTime is a great way to get in contact with the people you love. I almost never directly call a person if I know them well because FaceTime is just so much better.

Here are some things you do when you FaceTime your best friend.

1. You start out by talking about random stuff you've done lately.

This can range from homework to what you were just doing before you called. Inevitably, this devolves, and you hop from topic to topic pretty quickly. Basically every call starts with, "Guess what I did!"

2. You play with your hair.

Or at least I do. I am very fidgety, so I have to be doing something at all times. When the conversation slows, I just create a new hairstyle.

3. You start planning trips together.

We plan trips to everywhere, basically. Weekend trips to Canada, seeing Broadway shows in New York, and even going to London and Scotland, at some point in the future.

4. You reminisce about all the weird stories you've experienced together.

We experience all the mutual awkwardness. We have to tell all those stories about events we've gone to and other random things that don't really have any relevance other than that they are fairly memorable.

5. You start singing.

Again, this might be a thing that only I do, but inevitably, over FaceTime, I will sing.

6. You start making faces.

The conversation sort of stops and you just sit there making faces into the camera.

7. You decide you should hang up like 12 times.

But you actually don't.

8. You start going through your phones as if you weren't FaceTiming.

I usually just start sending pictures to the person I am currently FaceTiming and ask them if they "remember this?"

9. You actually hang up.

But not without saying you'll call them again soon. I never want to hang up, so I have to set a time for the next call before I can get myself to do it.

There is always that moment after you hang up where you sit there wondering what you do next. But FaceTiming my friends is one of the best ways to deal with living far away from them. And, overall, it's just really fun.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
