9 Reasons Why Being A 'Homebody' Is The BEST Thing Ever

Why go out when you can stay in bed with your pjs?


We all have that friend who loves going out every single week and we all have that friend that you can simply never get out of the house. Well, I used to be the friend that always found reasons to go out and now I'm that friend to where it'll be a miracle to get out of the house. I most definitely prefer being a "homebody" and here are 9 reasons to why I would not have it any other way.

1. You will always know where I am

You never have to wonder where I am or check my location. You can always find me on my couch with a bowl of popcorn watching Netflix.

2. Netflix and Chill

No, I do not mean THAT type of Netflix and Chill. I literally mean actually watching Netflix, laying in bed, and having all types of junk food and wine you can drink at your fingertips.

3. Speaking of food

Instead of going out and spending $30 on one meal; you could pull a Gilmore Girls move and order Chinese Take Out with extra fortune cookies for half that price.

4. Have I mentioned wine?

Because what kind of night-in would it be without a nice bottle of wine and the best part is you don't have to share it with anyone!

5. You never have to worry about bumping into people you don't want to see

You have the choice on whether or not you want to invite people over. And typically when you choose to invite people over; that means you actually want to see them

6. When you spontaneously decide to go out; your friends will be so surprised

When you decide to go out for the first time in months not only do you have a good time but your friends will be so surprised; it's like they are seeing a beautiful unicorn.

7. You can pull a 'Risky Business' move and dance around in your underwear and t-shirt without being judged

Let's be honest here; we all have dreamt about dancing around in our underwear and long white socks like Tom Cruise did so spectacularly.

8. You don't have to worry about whether or not your outfit looks good

I don't know about you but being comfortable in your own home is the best feeling ever. Bring out your oversized t-shirt with baggy sweatpants outfit and pull hair up in that messy bun!

9. NO BRA!!

Last but not least; and ladies I know you'll love reading this, you do not have to wear a bra when you are just at home! Nothing feels better than wearing a big t-shirt while just lounging around.

Even though going out with your friends is fun and exhilarating, so is simply being a homebody and staying in binge-watching Jane the Virgin for the millionth time.

20 'Thank Yous' My Best Friends Need To Hear BEFORE The Semester Ends

Because I don't thank you enough.


When I decided to graduate a year early, I never thought about how hard it would be to say goodbye. The best part of my three-year journey at Florida State was the friends that I had made. The friends you meet in college are the friends you will never forget. Although in two weeks we will be miles apart, this is not the end of us-- this is a different type of forever. At this point, all I can say is thank you for making my time here unforgettable. Thank you:

1. For buying me Ice Cream when I had a bad day.

2. For pushing me out of my comfort zone. 

3. For teaching me the right way to do Happy Hour. 

4. For complimenting me when I wore that tight dress.

5. For forcing me to go to the library with you.

6. For *trying* to make me go to the gym.

7. For giving me great advice that you know I won't follow. 

8. For letting me borrow your new shirt even though you haven't even worn it yet.

9. For forgiving me when I get a little sassy.

10. For telling me I can do better. 

11. For reading my shitty articles. 

12. For ignoring my absolutely terrible singing. 

13. For laughing at my jokes. 

14. For roasting me in the group chat. 

15. For driving me to class when I was too lazy to find parking. 

16. For picking me up from class when I was too lazy to walk back home.

17. For lending me money because I really REALLY needed that extra guacamole.

18. For tolerating my annoying self after your stressful day.

19. For staying up late because I didn't want to watch the scary movie alone.

20. For being the best friends I ever had.

An Open Letter To The Friend Who Continues To Save My Life

No one knows me like you do.


From the day we became friends, we have always had nothing but support for one another. Although we have only really been friends for about seven years now, I feel as if you have always been a part of my life. You know me just as well as you know yourself, and I understand you in the same way I understand my own thoughts and feelings.

You have never made me feel pressured, insecure, or unappreciated. The mutual respect we have for one another is unmatched. We can talk to each other about anything; from some of the most trivial topics to entire life philosophies. We have grown and matured together, and I couldn't be more proud of the person you are today.

We don't always agree on everything, and I always appreciate your fresh point of view, but I have never felt more in sync with another person than I do with you. We share the same birth month, the same age, the same home town, the same anxieties, and many of the same attitudes and values.

I feel as if you know exactly when I want to be alone and when I need company. Since we are both introverted, we understand that the other person needs time to recharge. And when I'm sitting alone with nothing to do, I always get a text from you asking to hang out.

In some of my loneliest, most vulnerable moments, you have been there. When I question how many true friends I really have, you are always sure to make your love for me known.

Through high school, and now college, we have experienced so many life-changing events together. Some that have taught us extremely valuable lessons, and others that have shown us incredible pain and how to grow from our lowest moments.

I want to thank you for showing me what life-long friendship looks like. Thank you for always understanding me and never putting too much pressure on me. I see an incredible future for both of us no matter where each of our lives takes us.

We will always share a unique connection that cannot be separated by any distance. But, for now, I'm glad you're only one text or phone call away.
