Common Roles In Every Friend Group
Start writing a post

The Party Animal

There is always that friend that is down to go out—any day, any night. They know where the best parties are going to be, and they know how to have the best time. As your friend, they will always bring you along for an amazing night out. They can usually be found getting down in the middle of the dance circle or taking control as DJ of the party!

The Therapist

That friend that will drive to your house at 3 AM so she can comfort you, that will listen to all of your problems and doesn’t care how much you need to complain about, and will always have a shoulder ready for you to cry on. She loves you no matter what, and you love her right back!

The Comic Relief

Every friend group needs this person. When things get heated or someone is feeling down, they always know how to lighten the mood. They are outgoing, fun-loving, and always know how to have a good time.

The Hipster

That friend that is just a bit different from you and your friends. She is always trying to play music that no one has heard of, is always a bit too overdressed for the occasion, and is always pushing for your group to do different things. She opens your group up to the best coffee shops, obscure music, and pushes everyone to get outside of their boxes. She spices up your group’s life in the best way!

The Mom

They will look out for those that drink too much at a party and always makes sure that everyone returns home safely. They are the glue that holds your friend group together; If two people are having an argument, they have the tendency to be the one to resolve the conflict and make peace. Often the mom of the friend group likes their role in the group, so don’t feel too bad—just don’t abuse it!

The Mooch

I think its safe to say we all have that one friend that (supposedly) never has money on them. You and your friends find it hilarious that they constantly are begging for money, but it won’t be as funny when you get caught having to buy their food for the hundredth time. However, at least they always promise they will pay you back—even if they never do!

The Overachiever

She manages to get straight A’s, is involved in everything, and still makes time to hang out with her girls! She is the group tutor, and you repay her by attending yet another charity event that she put together. Her positive energy and involvement motivates your friends to be the best that they can be!

The Absolute Mess

…and you love them for it. Honestly, things never seem to go quite right for them, but they have accepted it at this point. Do your best to look out for them—especially at parties. Parties are a danger zone for the mess of the friend group.

The Guy’s Girl

Other than your group of girls, all of her homies are boys. She is chill, always can go with the flow, and doesn’t mind watching the game. You hate having to share her…but at least she introduces you to all of her cute friends!

The Flirt

She is that girl that all of the guys want, and you see why. She is cute, loves to have fun, and always knows what to say. She probably meets most of her flings through your friend mentioned above! Basically, your entire friend group lives vicariously through her love life.

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

6 Ways To Handle The Stress Of Earning Your Degree From Your Childhood Bedroom

Oh so this was the room where I snuck cookies upstairs past my bedtime and stole R-Rated movies to watch when my parents were asleep and now I'm expected to earn my degree in this very same room?

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist. For me though, November is the perfect time to compile a playlist of songs that bring on major nostalgia which I think is perfect for this time of year. If you're looking for something to get you in that thankful spirit before you head into the Christmas spirit or something to play while you enjoy Friendsgiving, here are some go-to songs to add to your November playlist.
