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!

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.
