27 Ways To Be ​Kind And Have Fun With Your F​riends​

In a world full of sadness, there have to be times when you need to take a break and just have fun. This can come in many forms. It isn't hard to be kind to one another, but we can often forget to do it. Even if you are having a bad day, you should still try to be kind. Just because you are having a bad day, doesn't mean you should ruin everyone else's day. Our culture has shifted to this "it's all about me" rather than thinking about others. It is so easy to get caught up in our stuff to the point where we forget that bigger things are going on around us. It is important to check up on your friends and be courteous to those around you. Even the smallest acts of kindness or fun can brighten someone's day and there are so many ways to do it.

1. Randomly give tiny gifts. It doesn't have to be anything big or expensive. It could be a comic book that your friend likes, or a heart-shaped piece of paper with a sweet message on it. 

2. Write your friends a handwritten letter. People love getting letters because it shows that you took time to write to them and the sentiment behind it is so sweet. 

3. Remembering what your friends like and dislike. Showing that you remember something that they told you means the world to people because it shows that you listened and cared enough to remember. 

4. Having inside jokes. 

5. Having long phone calls. I love having long phone calls with people. I am not entirely sure why, but I just love the feeling of knowing I can still talk to someone, no matter how long, even if they aren't there next to me. 

6. Facetiming while you are both doing something else. Just knowing that the person is there is all you really need. 

7. Cooking or baking something for your friends or family. People always appreciate free food, and the fact that you made it makes it more meaningful. (Even if it turned out horrible, at least they know you tried).

8. Send people texts when you randomly think about them. It truly makes a difference in their day.

9. Listen without judging. This is a big one. All people want is someone to listen to them.

10. Making someone laughs so hard that their whole body shakes. It is such a great feeling to make someone laugh, especially if they are feeling sad.

11. Hanging out at furniture stores and testing out every couch there is. This is a fun way to de-stress.  

12. Have deep conversations when it is deep in the night. Deep talks late at night seem to hit harder for some reason. Those are times when you can learn a lot about someone. 

13. Randomly buy flowers for someone. Everyone appreciates flowers! Except if they are allergic, then don't get them flowers. Get them artifical flowers or something.

14. Letting your friends taste your food and also tasting theirs to the point where you basically ate a fair amount off of each others plate. This may seem weird, but to me it shows a certain kind of kindness. 

15. Saying "give me that, I'll carry it for you." 

16. Helping your friends decide what to wear while also reminding them that they look amazing no matter what. Everyone needs a little confidence boost.

17. Being invovled in every bad hair decision. (Just randomly deciding to dye your friends hair pink, or just chopping it all off). 

18. Simply pay attention. The purpose of this is to see if they are doing okay, or even as a way to know more about them.

19. Be aware and understanding of someone's financial situation. Maybe every once in a while offer to pay for them.

20. Looking stupid in public together. (Dancing in stores to overplayed pop songs, singing loudly in your car). 

21. Hugging people when you say hi or goodbye to them. 

22. Be there for people even if you can't help them. Simply being there is enough. 

23. Sending them or showing them something saying that "this reminded me of you." Everyone loves getting those. 

24. Allowing people to be human with everything that this entails. People will make mistakes, but you have to learn to forgive.

25. Staying up all night to binge watch a show or a movie.

26. Don't forget to send "let me know when you get home safely" or "made it home" texts.

27. Give them space when needed.

There are so many ways to show kindness and let loose in order to have fun. It isn't a difficult thing to do. These are only a few ways to brighten someone's day. I encourage you to incorporate these things into your lives and just look for the impact they have.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

3596
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11630

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
