1. Camping

There isn't anything like camping to have a blast before you all part ways. Whether you go to the beach or out in the woods, you'll be sure to make another great memory before college.

2. Concerts

This summer has been packed with the most concerts I've ever been to. It is an awesome way to party with everyone a few extra times. Sometimes a smaller group is a better way to go for this, since it gives you more personal time with the friends you are closest with.

3. Boating

Nothing says making memories more than almost dying multiple times out on the river or lake with your best buds. You can make a whole day out of it, or even a weekend if you want to tie in camping.

4. One last visit at each house.

Something that my friends and I have been doing is visiting each house as a group each weekend as a countdown to when the first few of us leave. It is a really fun way to have a last hoorah in each of the places we have spent growing up in.

5. Reliving old memories.

We're all adults now, and pretty soon nobody will want to do the really awesome stuff we did when we were young. Nerf? Fort building? Do it now one last time with everybody, and remember the great times you had when you were younger. Nobody besides your best friends will know, so don't be afraid to do the most embarrassing, cringe inducing activities.

6. Just spending time together and talking

Spend time in big groups, spend time in small groups, spend time one on one, and just take it all in. It is very possible that you might not all ever be in the same room again, so embrace the people who have made you who you are, and don't pass up the opportunity to make one more memory.

As you move on and begin to make new friends that will quite possibly be lifelong friends, don't forget about the foundation that your childhood and high school friends gave you, and the comfort level that you have with these friends that not too many other people will be able to give you.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

During midterms week, people always post pictures of quotes on Instagram or post quotes on Facebook, Twitter, or other social media platforms. Everyone is constantly wishing everyone good luck and telling them that they will do great. It's funny to think it all just stops the second testing ends. We should strive to be motivated all the time and in all aspects of our life, not just school and midterms/finals. We should also push our friends and encourage them to strive to do their best in everything they do. It should not take testing for everyone to want others to do well.

Do well and succeed and make yourself happy and proud. That is all that matters.

3. "Wherever you are, be all there." - Jim Elliot

Goals can take sacrifices. Are you willing to make them?
