Life is always crazy and especially in college when you're away from home or your friends are away from home, it can be easy to lose touch.

1. Text / Call them whenever they cross your mind

A great way to stay in touch with friends, especially when you're apart, or just busy, is to text or call them whenever they cross your mind. It can be about a tv show you just discovered and want them to watch or just to tell them you appreciate them and hope they're doing well.

Whatever the message, checking in whenever they cross your mind will definitely help you stay better connected!

2. Be kind

You never really know what a person is going through at any given time, even your closest friends.

Be kind to your friends and check in on them. Life is hard and it's even harder when you feel alone. Let your friends know you have their back!

3. Remember, you are not alone

Especially now with how disconnected and distanced we all are, it can be easy to fall into a pattern of not talking to anyone and feeling rather lonely.

Remember, you are never truly alone. There are so many people out there that care about you. You just need to reach out!

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
