7 Perfect Date Places For All You San Diego Students Living On A Budget
Juan Reyes

As college students, affordability is a must. As much as we'd like, we can't drop $100 on dates to the zoo or to a fancy restaurant. Instead, here are seven easy and fun date ideas to do close to San Diego State University.

1. Boomers

Ah yes, a childhood landmark. There's still something so fun about competing in mini golf, go-karting or even at batting cages on a date. It doesn't require much skill, or much cash, to go and be a kid again at Boomers.

2. Scooter-riding on the Boardwalk

These electric scooter companies are popping up left and right. One of the best spots to find them is at Mission Beach, especially around the boardwalk area. For just a couple bucks, you and your date can ride all the way to Pacific Beach and back while having a blast.

3. Find a secret swing.

There are hidden swings all over San Diego, including one in La Jolla. You have to work together to find these spots, which is the perfect way to get to know each other. It's free, fun and adventurous.

4. Birch Aquarium

There's nothing like finding Nemo with your date! Birch aquarium offers student discounts for college students and sits right over the beach, so you can make a whole day at the beach a little more exciting.

5. Cowle's Mountain

Hiking Cowle's Mountain is a great way to get to know your date. It's not the most physically demanding hike, so you can still look cute while hiking up the hills. You can see how tough your date is while showing off how strong you are.

6. Drive-in movie

Santee offers drive-in movies everyday of the year. Put blankets and pillows in the back of your car, grab some snacks, and watch a new movie with your partner for less than $20. It's a nice change from the typical movie theater scene and an upgrade from a Netflix night.

7. Bowling

Bowling is a fun way to get to see if your Wii skills are applicable to real life sports. With an ARC membership at San Diego State, you can go bowling on campus for next to nothing. You don't have to talk to your date as much as any most other locations, so if you're shy use this game to build up comfort with your date.

San Diego is an expensive place to live, but it doesn't have to be an expensive place to date. There are many options for taking someone out on a budget and still having a good time!

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

As college students, sometimes life can be overwhelming. Four tests in a week and you only passed one of them? I feel that. Days like that, you just need time for yourself. A time where you're nice to yourself and put your own self-care before anything else.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
