9 Perfect Low-Cost Date ideas

Movies and television shows have convinced us that the perfect date needs to cost a fortune. It needs to include a fancy dinner, maybe a movie, and other things that will end up costing a fortune. To have the perfect date, you do not need to spend a fortune. Here are 9 low-cost date ideas.

1. Driving around.

It does not cost a lot to just get in your car and take a drive and see where you end up. There are no fees involved and it is a fun adventure. An idea with this is to take a coin and heads is a right turn and tails is a left turn and you flip it a bunch of times until you eventually end up somewhere.

2. Watching TV on the couch.

There is no cost at all to curling up on the couch in your favorite sweats and watching television all night. And hey, you don't even have to dress up.

3. Walking through a bookstore.

This is so hard for me to do without buying the whole store but there is no risk in going to a bookstore and just walking around.

4. Walking through a mall.

Again, you don't have to buy anything but sometimes it is fun just to walk around a mall and see what is there. Check out a store you've never been in or try to make it a game but trying to find the most expensive item in the store or something like that.

5. Window shopping through a town.

Places that have downtown areas are so cute and a great place to just walk around and window shop. There is no cost to window shop.

6. Go to a boardwalk.

I personally love walking up and down boardwalks and it is free to do so. This is a great date idea where you can stop and watch the waves if you want.

7. Walk on the beach.

There are a lot of free beaches and there is no cost to walk up and down a beach. I love hearing the waves as they flwo over my feet in the sand.

8. Picnic

Picnics are a great low cost date because if you buy food to cook then it usually does not cost as much as buying food to take out. And most parks are free so you have a free place to have your picnic.

9. Take a walk through a park.

Most parks are free to visit and it does not cost anything to take a walk. Parks are so beautiful and romantic and great date places.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
