Regardless Of How Busy You Are, Don't Forget To Spend Time With Your Friends This Summer

When life is chaotic and busy, it's important to not forget the important people who've been with you all along.

Regardless Of How Busy You Are, Don't Forget To Spend Time With Your Friends This Summer

Graduation, new jobs, new homes, new families, new locations are all part of life. Some of us may be at very different points in our lives, with some of our friends still in college while others move on to full-time employment, and others even getting engaged and moving on their lives that way.

While we all may be in different positions or even similar ones, it may be pretty difficult to find time to set up a night out for dinner or a weekend BBQ where everyone can make it. You're reaching adulthood, the time where you can't just text a friend to hang out tonight or tomorrow because someone has work or is busy with schoolwork or something else. And while that time may be nearing faster than you can say, "Hey, are you busy this weekend?" it's important to take a step back and really try to get your friends together at least once in a while.

No matter where you met your friends, whether they've stuck with you since high school or a sports team, or you met them at work or at school, it's important to surround yourself with the people you have stuck by you all along. And if you've tried to see that one friend for a while and just haven't had the chance, get to it! Make plans, set dates well in advance, create a fun time! Before life gets too out of hand, before we don't have a chance to tell our friends how much they mean to us, make sure you spend time with your closest friends because without them life isn't as fun.

This summer make it a point to create fun memories with your friends. See movies, go to the beach together and have a picnic, have a BBQ for the Fourth of July, get drinks, go out to eat, take a group trip, or just go for a ride with the windows down! This is that reminder to be with your friends before life gets too out of hand. Our friends help us deal with stress and give us advice when things are going wrong, they encourage us and stick by us when the going gets tough, and they'll always try their best to make time for you, so don't forget to make time for them.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
