Going Southbound With My Girls Reminded Me That My Best Friends Are My North Star

Let's go to the beach, each, let's go get away.

Going Southbound With My Girls Reminded Me That My Best Friends Are My North Star
Megan Martin

I've been on a few girls' trips with some of my closest girlfriends, but I am looking forward to more.

In January 2018, I went to Colorado with three friends over New Years and went on another girls trip in September of 2018 to Texas, and I'm looking forward to going to new places with my girls. I really want a girls trip to New Orleans and to have a similar experience as the movie "Girls Trip."

The trip that I took south last fall was memorable, to say the least. The two ladies, in the cover photo above, and I spent six days catching up and catching rays on the beaches of Galveston, Texas.

The two friends that I went with were previous a co-worker and boss of mine. While attending school, I worked as a Leasing Consultant for an apartment complex in Cedar Rapids. One of my friends worked there most of the time while I was there, and the other came in halfway through, taking over as the Property Manager.

We all grew extremely close after one of them and another girl (who couldn't make the trip) transferred to our property in Iowa from theirs in Florida. Our friendship just clicked from the beginning. Going out to eat, grabbing drinks, making supper at each others' apartments to celebrating Christmas together.

After the property was sold, they moved south again. The other friend and I had visited them once in July of 2017 for a long weekend.

For a 'reunion' in 2018, we decided to go south to Galveston to have a girls trip getaway. Unfortunately, one of the girls was unable to make it, but the time was still just as fun.

We caught up on each others' lives, drank some wine (maybe too much one night), went out in Galveston, soaked up some Vitamin D and had a movie day when the weather went haywire. The night with too much wine consisted of singing at the top of our lungs and dancing around our Airbnb.

Let me just say that I highly recommend staying in an Airbnb because most times you can get it for a whole lot cheaper than a hotel, and you get the luxury of staying in a house instead of a small room.

Plan as many trips as you can with your girlfriends because those will be some of the best memories you will make, and when life takes you all in separate directions, that trip will reconnect your relationship and it's a perfect time to getaway.

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.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. 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. 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.
