Why You Should Take A Road Trip

Have you ever felt like you were stuck in the monotony of day to day life? Just need a break from this endless cycle? I think we have all been there, or are there right now. Sometimes it feels like there is no way to break free from this and you don't know what to do to change it. Well, my solution to this problem is this: take a road trip.

Take a road trip? Who has time for a vacation anymore!? But here's the thing about a road trip: it can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. You can drive to the zoo an hour away for the day, or go to another city for a weekend, or if you're feeling ambitious you could even drive across the country. That is what is unique about a road trip, you can make it however you want it to be and the possibilities are endless. So if you say you don't have time for a road trip, think again because your road trip could even be for just a day.

So this is my advice to you: when life is getting boring or things have got you down, fill your gas tank up, grab a friend, an awesome playlist, a few snacks and set out on the open road. You might ask me how this is a solution, and I might not have the most clear answer but I will definitely have a few and some great stories to tell.

To me, there's nothing more fun than getting out of your comfort zone and going on an adventure. If you're stuck in your daily routine, you most likely are not having a whole lot of adventures (unless you live in a really cool place with endless things to do). There is so much to discover right at your fingertips, so why not go out and see as much as you can. Even if its just some oddity like the worlds largest ball of yarn, that is still something you can say you have seen!

Honestly, a lot of the best memories of my life have been made on road trips. Whether its with family or friends, you are sure to make some memories and have some stories to tell at the end of it. My friends and I often go to nearby cities, the beach, or go visit other colleges for fun, and these road trips are unforgettable. I get to relax and explore new things while forgetting about the troubles of daily life.

Road trips also help you grow closer to the people you travel with. I don't know about you, but some of the most meaningful conversations ever have been with friends on road trips. When there is nothing but you, your friend, and the open road for hours you cover pretty much every topic under the sun. You get to tell stories, ask questions, and figure out each others odd habits. My best friend and I have taken several road trips together, and they have only brought us closer.

So, if you need to clear your mind and escape life for awhile, take a road trip. There is no reason for excuses, grab your loved ones and jump in the car and go. Who knows? You just might have the greatest adventure of your life that you will be telling people about for years to come.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

6862

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
