Friends with benefits: two friends that have sex with each other with no strings attached. One of the most casual relationships if its done right. And if not done right it could end in a disaster. These are some commandments that I have come up with, with some past experience.

1. Thou shall pick the right person

This is very important. It can't be a best friend or an ex. This person has to be either someone you know a little bit now a whole lot of someone that you don't know at all.

2. Thou shall set rules before it starts

Setting standards for something like this need to happen. And talking about them before it happens is important, you can't go on and just make rule whenever. It gets complicated that way.

3. Thou shall not catch any feelings

Friends with benefits is something casual and if you get feelings then it ruins that causality.

4. Thou shall only hang out in the bedroom

Don't go to the movies or out to eat because that's a date which leads to feelings. The only date you need is in the bedroom.

5. Thou shall not spend the night

Have sex with them and leave. If you spend the night it opens up the possibility of something else.

6. Thou shall not cuddle

Cuddling is intimate, and it's a nonverbal way to show your feelings for a person. And if you don't have feelings for them why would you cuddle them?

7. Thou shall only have sex

Your friends with one extracurricular activity and that extracurricular activity is having sex.

8. Thou shall use protection

Especially if you guys are sleeping with other people.

9. Thou shall explore their desires

This is a great chance to try your fantasies and see what you like during sex.

10. Thou shall have good communication

Depending on how this is going to last, you gonna want to check up on how they feel about.

11. Thou shall read them

media.giphy.com

Sometimes people are not going to say everything that they think so you also have to read

12. Thou shall not introduce to friends or family

media.giphy.com

If you start introducing them to people you have to label them. Also, people will start to ask questions about who they really are.

13. Thou shall be open to relationships

media.giphy.com

This is a casual relationship so be open to a relationship with someone else you might meet. Don't cut off relationships with other people because you never know how this will end.

14. Thou shall accept what happens in the end

media.giphy.com

If it ends in a relationship that's okay and if it ends without a relationship that's okay too.

15. Thou shall have fun

media.giphy.com

It's casual, so have fun with it.

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.

I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
