14 Signs You're The 'Baby Groot' Of Your Friend Group

14 Signs You're The 'Baby Groot' Of Your Friend Group

You might be the 'Mom Friend', but I am the "Baby Groot Friend".


Similar to the "Guardians of the Galaxy", we all have our own friend group that we would go to battle with.

While I was watching "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" I started to picture me and my friends as the characters in the movie. Which of my friends would I classify as the leader? The daredevil? The smart one? And soon I realized that the character I most reflected...was Baby Groot.

At first this was quite funny to think of myself as a little tree creature, but in fact, being the Baby Groot of your friend group is a true honor. There is honestly nobody else who could replace you and the friend group would never be the same without you.

While of course, Peter is a cool dude with lots of cool moments, Baby Groot is a scene stealer. He's the glue that holds them all together. The Switzerland of characters. There is truly no other greater character in the movie besides Baby Groot. There is truly no other greater Marvel superhero.

If you are the Baby Groot of your friend group, you should embrace your power... or lack of it at times. You are the most adorable little tree creature your friend group will ever see.

You know you're the Baby Groot of your friend group if...

1. You're most likely the youngest and/or smallest one of the group.

2. Which means your friends can get pretty protective over you most of the time.

3. That doesn't mean you can't fight your own battles when you need to. Especially when it comes to defending your friends.

4. You're never in the middle of the group drama. You're a neutral player.

5. In fact, you are traditionally the peacekeeper and the problem-solver.

6. You're the first person to find the good in any situation.

7. But also, you're the one most likely to call it a night before the others.

8. There's a special quirkiness about you that only your friends understand and appreciate.

9. You're always ready to help your friends when they need you!

10. Although sometimes it can get you into trouble...

11. Which means your friends typically try to have you avoid anything that could lead you down the wrong path. (This is where #2 comes back into play)

12. But you don't typically listen to them because you are a strong independent tree creature who can handle themselves.

13. But your friends are always ready to take care of you when you need them and sometimes you really need them.

14. And at the end of the day, as strange as you may be at times, your friends are stranger. And that's what makes you all friends!

15. And you would do anything for your friend group because you love them.

15. Almost as much as you love music. And dancing. Especially dancing.

You. Are. Groot.

Grab a cup of coffee at Central Park.

As a "Friends" fanatic myself, I often wonder about the places in New York City featured in the various episodes and whether I could actually visit them. Most of them are fictional or no longer exist, but there are a few places you can go to reminisce about your favorite "Friends" moments. So, here are six places in New York City you definitely need to visit as a "Friends" fan.

1. The Apartment Building, Obviously

The building used for the exterior shot of the apartments in "Friends" is real and is located at 90 Bedford Street at the corner of Grove Street in Greenwich Village. It's an obvious must-see.

2. The Pulitzer Fountain

This is the fountain that the friends danced around in for the iconic theme song, and it's located right in Central Park.

3. Bloomingdale's

This is the department where Rachel worked before she moved on to Ralph Lauren, where she met Joshua, and where she started her career in fashion.

4. The Plaza Hotel

This is where Monica and Chandler celebrated their engagement in "The One WIth Monica's Thunder," and is actually really gorgeous.

5. The Central Perk Replica

While Central Perk isn't a real coffee shop, a pop-up replica opened up in 2014 on Lafayette Street and it's definitely a must-visit.

5 Ways to Turn a Bad Day into a Good One

When you're down, these things will pick you up.


Let's face it, we all have bad days. Sometimes you lose a cherished item, you get a speeding ticket, or you're not feeling the best. These circumstances occur often, but no one wants to let a bad day ruin their week. Here are five no-fail ways to cheer you up when you're feeling blue.

Throwing a Solo Dance Party 

This is my personal favorite way to cheer myself up. When someone had upset me or I'm not having a good day, I put on some rap music and jump around my room until I'm sweaty and happy. Make a playlist of all the mainstream songs you enjoy and listen to them on whenever you're feeling down. The best part of this dance party is that you can do it by yourself so no one will make fun of your dance moves

Watching Vines

Most people like watch cute cat or dogs videos when they are feeling down, but I like to watch vines. Nothing makes one happier than when they are feeling nostalgic. Vine was a star plucked too quickly from our orbit. Watching these six-minutes videos never fail to put a big smile on my face.

Listening to Audiobooks

Audiobooks are a great source of entertainment. When someone has made me angry, I can always count on my audiobook to envelop me in its intricate plot and character's adventures. It's impossible to be upset when you are completely invested in the life of another. if you're hesitant to try this one, I would still encourage you to listen to an audiobook. This type of reading is an experience you don't want to miss.

Watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine 

Normally, one would say watching Netflix or Hulu cheers them up, but I wanted to go a step beyond that. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is one of my favorite tv shows. The characters are funny and really unique. This show also encompasses a looot of diversity, which is really important in this day and age. There is no bad day that Jake Peralta's antics cannot cure and that I'm sure.

FaceTiming a Friend

My last tip is guaranteed to keep a smile on your face for the rest of the day. There's something about talking to a friend over FaceTime when you're not happy that makes you feel so good. The inane conversations you while on FaceTime can never happen the way they do anywhere else. Friends are great, especially when you are feeling down.

It's okay to have bad days, but it's important not to let those days over power you. With these five ways to get over a bad day, you'll find it rare that you ever have one again!
