15 Things You've Said If You Hate Going Out

15 Things You've Said If You Hate Going Out

"Has anyone checked the weather for this weekend?"

Whether you hate going out in general, or only love it very selectively, there are a few key excuses your friends are probably tired of hearing from you by now. Hey, at least you're not telling them that your dog ate your homework right? You like to think you're a little bit more believable than that.

1. "Why don't we just have a night in?"

Because starting with alternative suggestions is always great.

2. "I'm not really feeling up to it tonight"

You know, just tonight, not every night or anything.

3. "I already went out last weekend"

Maybe not exactly last weekend, three weekends ago, who's counting?

4. "I'm gonna have a "me night" tonight"

Takeout, Netflix and fuzzy socks. You can't get that combo at the bars.

5. "Has anyone checked the weather for this weekend?"

If it's below sixty five degrees we're not going out and if it's over seventy, probably too hot.

6. "I'll come over but I need to be home early"

Why? Because I want to be.

7. "I'm too tired"

It's not a lie, you are very tired, but there are more factors than that.

8. "I'm already in bed"

Right where I want to be.

9. "I have a paper to write tomorrow"

Gotta be fully rested so I can really MLA cite those sources like a pro.

10. "There are going to be too many people out"

The bars will be crowded, drinks will be spilled. It would be awful.

11. "There won't be enough people out"

It's dead week, no one wants to go out and we don't want to be the only people at the bar.

12. "I can't dance"

Sorry, no fun to go dancing if you just stand there swaying awkwardly all night.

13. "I have to be up early tomorrow"

Is this the same as 'I can't be out late'? Yes, but you can't use the same excuse two nights in a row.

14. "I don't want to run into you know who"

Voldemort? Maybe. The boy you dated and is always at the same parties as you and your friends? Probably more likely and more awkward.

15. "No"

Because sometimes keeping it simple and honest is the best answer.

7 Things You Do If You’re One Of Those 'I Always Order Chicken Tenders' People

It's hard to love food but also hate it at the same time.


Growing up, my mom would usually have to cook me a separate dinner from my siblings. Why? Because I was ridiculously picky and wouldn't eat the same foods as everyone else. Trust me, it gets old. It's not my fault certain things just taste gross, you learn to live with it.

1. You eat something you hate just to see if you still hate it

I'll take a bite of a burger every once in a while just to reaffirm that it still tastes like dirt. I just have to know. Don't even get me started on vegetables.

2. When trying to explain what you actually like to eat, people give you major side eye

Don't ask me about my eating habits unless you want to get into a long, confusing conversation.

3. Eating at someone else’s house when you were younger was a pain

You hate to tell their parents just how much you hate the food that they gave you. So, you sucked it up and ate it anyway only to come home and whine to your parents.

4. There’s one thing on any menu you always fall back on...even if it’s on the kids menu

Pizza, maybe. Chicken tenders, always.

5. Trying a new food is a very proud moment

It's like, wow! Look at me being all adventurous.

6. When you realize you actually like some new food, that’s an even more amazing moment

Crazy times. This rarely happens.

7. Sometimes it’s the texture, sometimes it’s the flavor, all the time it’s left on your plate

Oops. At restaurants it's either left on your plate or your order is very specified.

32 Thoughts And Actions EVERY Hungover College Girl Has And Does The Morning After

"What time is it? Where's my phone? How the heck did I get home?"


So, you went out last night and you had one too many drinks.

Sure, you promised yourself and your friends that you were only going to have "like two drinks" because you "have to be up early the next day."

That ~may~ have been your intention but you got to the party and there was free juice and beer, you started playing stack cup (a game you're REALLY not great at) which led to flip cup (also not your strongest suit), and you saw your ex from Sigma Apple Pi with his new girl and against your better judgment, instead of leaving the situation, your already intoxicated self decided to down two extra shots "for liquid courage" to go and confront that little playboy. Right as you tap him on the shoulder, you blackout.

The next thing you know, it's morning. And now you're hungover.

But don't feel bad! We've all had those mornings. The morning where you might have a few of the following thoughts...

1. "Ugh who turned on the sun"

2. "What time is it? Where's my phone? How the heck did I get home?"

6. *Sees full but illiterate conversation with four different people including your ex* "NOOOOOOO"

7. "Why is my Snap story literally 5 minutes long? Who's that in it? Am I wall twerking???"

8. *Starts deleting snap story*

9. "OK. On the count of three, get up... one, two, two and a half, three"

10. *Finally gets up and immediately gets nauseous*

"That was a mistake"

11. *Runs to the bathroom*

12. *Throws up in the toilet for a solid 9 heaves while head is still pounding*

13. *Looks in the mirror to see last nights makeup smudged all over your face and your once-cute outfit covered in blood stains, mud, and dried alcohol*

14. "I'm a garbage person"

15. *Stumbles to the kitchen for water and Advil*

16. Roommate who has her life together: "Oh good, you're alive"

Well, kind of.

17. *Grumble something about never drinking again as you down the pills and about eight glasses of water*

18. You to everyone you went out with: "What the heck happened last night?"

19. *Gets 14 different versions of what you did last night*

20. *Tries to piece together how the rest of the night went*

21. "I booty called WHO???"

Mistakes were made.

22. "I gotta drop out of school now"
