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.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
