12 Reasons I'd Rather Stay In On A Saturday Night Than Interact With Other Humans

We all know the feeling of guilt you get when you just do not want to go out on a Saturday night, but you're torn with the feeling that you're not a normal teen/young adult. I'm here to give you the most compelling reasons to stay in this weekend, and not feel bad about it.

1. You don't have to wear a bra.


Honestly, I could just stop the list here because this is arguably the best thing about staying in.

2. The food at home is FREE.


Your bank account has been BEGGING you not to spend any more money on food when you literally just went grocery shopping. Listen to it. The bank doesn't play.

3. You don't have to wear pants.


No more button marks on your muffin top! No more cramping after your daily Chick-Fil-A feast! FREEDOM IS RINGING. Let the bell toll, people. Let the bell toll.

4. There are no forced interactions with anyone when you're alone in your bedroom!


Listen Becca, I KNOW your sorority's philanthropy. I don't want to hear about it again. Ever.

5. You can sit still for an obscene amount of time and no one can stop you.


Pro tip: Grab all of your snacks before you lay down, so you can maximize your time of being a vegetable.

6. You don't have to do your hair and makeup—saving you over an hour of time.


Your messy bun is about to shine as bright as your computer screen.

7. You don't have to worry about running into someone you would pay to avoid.


Remember that guy you promised you'd give your phone number to last weekend? Yeah, lets avoid him at all costs.

8. You won't get drunk and regret it.


You might get wine drunk, but just enough to make everything you're watching 10x funnier and to make you sleep like a baby.

9. You don't have any obligation to take care of drunk friends!


You just get to worry about yourself. What a foreign concept!

10. Finally, some intimate, one-on-one time with your dog, a.k.a. your truest friend.


Give that good boy/girl the love that they DESERVE.



Independent films, mysteries, horror films, foreign films, oh my!!!!

12. There's no need to pretend to be having fun—you actually will be.


The only person you need to worry about is you. You don't have to ask anyone's opinion on what they want to watch or consult anyone on what to have for dinner. Everything is up to you, my friend.

Basically, you don't need to feel guilty for staying in on a Saturday night! You are totally entitled to some healthy alone time and don't owe anybody an explanation of your actions. So, take my advice and experience some of these incredible things for yourself this Saturday night—I promise that you won't regret it.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
