Activities Everyone In Your Squad Will Love

Ditch the movies or the bowling alley for something more exciting.

Activities Everyone In Your Squad Will Love
Sensual Thinking

When you've got a group of friends with different interests and schedules, it can be difficult to find a time and place to hang out that doesn't get boring after a while. The movies are fun, but there's nothing you all want to see, and bowling never ends well for your shins and wrist. When your squad gets into a rut with their plans, here are some go-to ideas to have a blast with all your people.

1. Have laser focus.

Laser tag is an incredibly fun way to battle your friends for supremacy and to destress after a long week of classes or co-op. Visit LaserQuest in West Roxbury for a classic laser tag battle, an Ironman Game that doubles the length of gameplay, and a Key Quest Experience that brings an "escape the room" challenge to a laser tag experience.

2. Embrace trivial pursuits.

If you and your friends know some crazy random facts and want to potentially win prizes by showing it off, go to a local trivia night as a group and compete! You'll have the opportunity to come up with a team name (the punnier the better) and flaunt your knowledge. Oh, and did I mention the free stuff you could win? Yeah. Check here to find some of the best spots in Boston.

3. Jump around.

Ever wanted to jump around on trampolines like a kid, even though you're grown now? Head to Sky Zone on Saturday nights for the 18+ SkyJam event! Two rooms are open for you to flip and spin with your friends and help release any pent-up stress through acting like a kid again and pretending you're a famous gymnast. Or just go bananas and flail around. Either way, you'll have fun.

4. Watch others acting out.

Want to laugh so hard you'll probably regret drinking so much water while you waited for the show? Check out an improv performance at one of the many incredible Boston venues. I'm personally a fan of Improv Asylum, perhaps one of the most well-known improv theaters in Boston and a place teeming with talent. Every night provides a different show and a different new inside joke between you and your friends. Even a lesser-known troupe at a smaller theater can provide an incredible show and laughter even days after.

5. Find your escape.

While being locked in a room and receiving a puzzle for escape is usually not a good thing in horror movies, it can be an incredibly fun challenge for groups interested in escape the room scenarios. Places like Escape the Room Boston and RoomEscapers provide convincing environments where teams must work together to solve puzzles and figure out how to exit a room within the allotted time. Every place has unique themes and rooms, so be sure to try out a few if you're looking for a satisfying way to compete against the clock and use your powers of deduction to escape the room.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
