I rarely went out back in high school. I wasn't really allowed to in the first place (yay for strict parents). And maybe that's why I am the way I am. Maybe that's why I don't like going out on weekends, partying, underage drinking, etc.
Or maybe that's just apart of my personality, and I can't very well change that about myself. Not like I'd want to anyways.
I'm perfectly happy staying in on a Friday night. I don't need to go out to have fun. I'm perfectly happy with just staying home, in my pj's, watching Netflix with my boyfriend.
Does that make me a grandma? Yeah, maybe.
That isn't to say I don't ever go out. I'm 20 after all. I like going on dates, spending time with friends. I obviously have to leave the house to go to work and school, too.
But my ideal Friday night is staying in.
And personally, I think everyone should try doing that more often. Instead of going out to dinner, stay in and cook. Instead of partying, getting wasted, and going to work hungover the next day, stay in and have a Harry Potter marathon.
I feel like, in this day and age, we feel the constant need to go out and do fun, exciting things every weekend. I remember stressing about what to do every weekend because I just didn't want to stay in by myself — but as I've gotten older, I've come to realize, staying in rocks. And I shouldn't force myself to do stuff I don't actually want to do.
Plus, I'd rather be saving all that money I would be spending going out every weekend on bigger, better things. Like, a mini-vacation for example.
I guess this is a big shout out to all you lazy butts out there: you're not alone. I like staying in, too, and there's nothing wrong with that.
