4 free ideas to keep you entertained on a Saturday night

What To Do On A Saturday Night With Your Friends

Summer is just around the corner and everyone is excited to finally get to the beach and take that well-needed vacation. During the summer we find ourselves constantly out, spending money, making the most out of every night, but after a while that stops. There is always going to be that one weekend where your friends decide to stay in or just chill around the house because you just went out the past three nights in a row and your paycheck is gone. These are some free-fun things to do on a summer night with your friends.

1. Store-Scavenger Hunt/ Town-Scavenger Hunt

What we do is pick a store of our choice, usually a Target or Walmart, or if you have a car, make it a town-wide hunt, and create teams. Teams of two or three are ideal, but you need at least two on a team. What we have done in the past is google search any list used for the scavenger hunt of our choice, whether it be a store, town, items around your house or a public place like the park or beach. The teams are usually given an hour or so to find as many items on the list and the team that collects the most items, wins. It doesn't seem like the most exciting game in the world, but believe it or nor, when my friends get together and play this game we make some pretty great memories.

2. Cook/Bake!

What we have done in the past, is pick a recipe of something we love or have never tried before, hoping you have all of the ingredients in your home, and cook or bake it with your friends. Again, this sounds boring, but if you are playing music and joking around, this can be a pretty fun night. Not only are you laughing and shapchat the whole ordeal, but you are getting food out of it--how great is that?

3. Movie Night

The typical movie night has been done so many time, but there are ways to turn an ordinary movie night into a memorable Saturday night wit your friends. From experience, I have found that reminiscing on old movies or tv shows that we watched as kids is always fun. We usually fight about which movies were better or who knows all the words to their favorite movie, but whether we end up watching these movies all the way through, or just bits and pieces of a few, it's always a good time.

4. The Last Resort--Going for a drive, Exploring a park, Playing a sport, or Going to Target

Now this 'last resort' has a few different options. Sometimes you aren't really in the mood to stay-in and you need to get out of the house because you can feel yourself getting cabin fever. What I have found, is that going for a drive and having a sing-along is a lot more fun than you think; rolling the windows down and screaming the words to your favorite song and telling stories in the car are some of my more memorable nights out with my friends.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
