A road trip always sounds like a good idea, especially with your friends, but let's be honest when you are in a car for 18 hours things can get claustrophobic. The best way to survive any road trip is through constant distraction from the uncomfortable traveling situation.

Netflix

Binge some shows! you can now download shows and movies. this could keep anyone entertained for quite along time. Maybe try a show you have not ever heard of or seen. you will probably love it.

Listen to new music

Try a new album! You might even expand your music taste. listening to music can make a long time go by very quickly.

Podcast!

I love a good podcast. Find a funny one and you can spend your entire ride laughing, or you get a mystery and become invested in finding out what happened!

Sleep, sleep and more sleep!

Take a nap! you could wake up and be there. It is the best way to pass time. Just remember to bring a pillow!

Social media

I mean we distract our selves on social media every day anyway, so it is obviously a good choice in the car. we all know that Twitter is always entertaining but honestly, Vine would be the best in the car. R.I.P Vine.

Read

A good book is an amazing way to pass time. I suggest Nicholas Sparks because how can you not get addicted to that?

Play games

Candy Crush!! Games are the best because it makes you think and distracts you from the long hours you have infant of you.

Homework

I am in college and constantly have homework, so the car gives me time to get it done. you might as well make the best use of your time!

Actually talk to each other

You rarely get to have people you love in one spot, make the most of it. Make memories, even if it is in the car.

 Sight see

The best part about a road trip is all the different places you pass through. take some time to appreciate them!

Yes, road trips can suck. However, they are not that bad if you have a good attitude about it and bring thins to distract you. It always makes it better when you are with friends. So, I recommend bringing them along too.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
