11 Things I do with my best friends just to hang out with them

I'm always down to hang out with friends, even if we're doing nothing.

11 Things I do with my best friends just to hang out with them

Life as a college student can get pretty hectic. Everyone has classes, jobs, band practice, tutoring, live out of state, or live on/off campus; these things make it really hard to hang out with friends. When people think of hanging out their minds generally go to let's go out and make this a grand adventure.

They think let's go out and party, go to dinner, or something that requires you to go out and socialize. What my friends and I have realized is that after classes, band practice, and life in general, no one wants to go out and socialize during the school year. Then once you hit break everyone wants to get together and go crazy with plans, but you don't have to go on crazy adventures to have fun and spend time with each other. The point is during the school year, it's really hard to do what you used to do to have fun, so just do what you'd do in everyday life together.

1. Run Errands


My friends and I have learned that one of us always has to go to the store, so we just all go together and help shop.

2. Pick Up Medicine


Even if the medicine was prescribed a week or two ago and the medicine is no longer needed.

3. Go shopping for upcoming events.


If you have a date or something important coming up and you ask me to go shopping with you, there is no way that I can give you fashion/style advice. However, I can cheer you and say, "Yeah, that looks great!"

4.Go with them to pick up tickets.


Want to go pick up concert tickets (even if the tickets aren't for me), let's go! I'm always down for a car ride with my friends.

5. Sit with them at their apartments between classes.


We don't even have to be doing anything, I'll come over and just chill until one of us has a class, and I'll be there when you get back too.

6. Go with them to pick up other friends from class.


Not everyone has a car, and if they're classes are to far away they ask someone to come get them, which means more time you can spend with your friends and have fun.

7. Help Cook Dinner

My friends and I learned early on that the way to getting people together is to make Buffalo Ranch Chicken Dip, they will come running. But don't let just one person cook of clean up make it a group effort and it will be more enjoyable and get done faster. We make other stuff too, promise.

8. Movie Marathons


The best way to get my friends together are to have movie marathons. We've watched almost all the Marvel movies in order, and are planning more once we're all back in the same state.

9. Drive for hours to spend the weekend with their friends.


Recently went to a friends house for the first time...didn't realize how far it actually was.

10. Leave Colorguard practice and drive straight to their house for a birthday party.


I love my friends and if driving from a 9-5 practice to their house means I get to see them I'll do it.

11. Have them come over late after work to watch movies ya'll've never seen.


The movies usually turn out really weird.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
