Early Action, Early Decision- ugh, too much! All I want to do is graduate already!

10 Places To Visit In Atlanta With Friends When You Need To Distance Yourself From College Applications

I know that this time of the year can be very stressful, especially for all those confused high school seniors that are anxious about applying to colleges. And if they're confused if they should apply early to that college or with regular decision. I am currently dealing with that. However, it's important that we also make the most out of this year because this is our last year of high school. It just felt as if I was a nervous freshman walking into the never-ending halls trying to find my way around the school to now walking with my head high as I get ready to graduate this spring. Make sure you make the most out of senior year because after this year, many of your friends may end up in different colleges. Here are 10 places to go to when you need to destress yourself from all these college applications.


Going to the gym and attending those enthusiastic classes like spin class or dance jams, this is one of the BEST places to go with your friends or your gym buddy. My gym buddy and I always go to LifeTime and end up having the best time there. Our gym talks are our best in-depth talks ever. Everyone needs a gym buddy to motivate each other when working out!!

Coffee Shop:

I personally prefer Starbucks. My friend and I literally go after school most days to usually finish our homework. At home, most people like us tend to not focus and often get distracted so Starbucks is the perfect place to get work done and to relax just have a cup of coffee with your friend or friends. Just go one day with your friend and get coffee and just catch up on the tea y'all have to share.

High Museum Of Art

This place is currently on my bucket list! I have always wanted to go there to see all the magnificent paintings that everyone takes picture of. Trust me, senior year of high school comes only once so might as well take full advantage of it.

Cupcake ATM:

Who doesn't love cupcakes? And cupcake atms? How does that work? Well, I guess you'll have to go to actually find out!

Peach Drop

Around New Year's Eve, just like New York has their apple drop, we have our very own Peach Drop! I encourage you to take your friends and family to celebrate the New Year!

Atlanta's Jingle Ball 2019

This happens around mid December where many of the famous singers from all around the world come to Atlanta to perform. It's a great way to celebrate all the college applications you have written and submitted because this concert happens right after you submit most of your college applications!

Sun Dial

If you haven't been to this restaurant, you are missing out! Sun Dial is a rotating restaurant and bar that shows the view of the city.

Atlanta Marriott Marquis

This hotel is one of my absolute favorites. Most of my school club conferences happen here where my friends and I stay here for 2-3 days. We always go to the top floor and take pictures of us with the beautiful view of Atlanta. After that we have a group of kids from our school with us and as we go to the first floor from the top floor we purposely jump to make the elevator go down faster.

Stone Mountain

One of the best ways to destress yourself is to talk a long hike or walk. Stone Mountain has many trails that you can take and it will distract your mind away from all the college applications.

Driving Around The CIty's Graffiti Art

By this time, you should have your license and if you don't your friends should have their license. So, go ahead and roam around Atlanta because there are many things you can do and the graffiti's around the city are absolutely amazing!

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

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.

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

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.
