Why Joey And Chandler Have The ULTIMATE Friendship Goals

As an avid FRIENDS viewer, I have come to love the relationship between Joey Tribbiani and Chandler Bing. I hate to pick favorites, but they are truly some of my favorites! They always seem to make me laugh no matter what mood I am in. If I am ever feeling down, I can just pop in any of the 10 seasons and instantly feel 100x more happier. From my many years of watching this show, I have realized that Joey and Chandler are ultimate friendship goals, and here is why!

They always know how to relax and have fun together, no matter the time or place. Whether it be in the café or in Monica and Rachel's apartment, they are constantly doing something or saying something so ridiculous that it turns out to be hilarious.

From joining in on making fun of one of their other friends together...

To sitting in their brand spanking new recliners and relaxing...

They know how to read each others body language and how to enjoy their one-on-one time together.

Joey and Chandler are so spontaneous and weird, that it makes everyone love them almost instantly. I mean, who would have thought they would come rolling in our their dog statue, eating a sandwich in this episode?

No matter when or where they are, they are never afraid to have random dance parties together even when they technically are not the best dancers around. But this isn't So You Think You Can Dance, so who is judging?

You may ask, what exactly are they doing in this GIF below? Well to summarize, they were helping one of their friends pack and were left alone for awhile and this happened. They are basically two kids in mens bodies. Who wouldn't want a best friend to do the most random and sometimes extremely stupid things with?

Chandler and Joey know how to have a good laugh. Whether they are saying one of their many inside jokes, or making fun of someone, they know how to make each other laugh. They may not laugh in the best situations but who cares.

And lastly, they are always there for each other when they need a big, fat hug. Although Chandler and Joey had their rough patches, they know they will always have each other no matter what. No matter

I aspire to have a friendship like Chandler Bing and Joey Tribbiani because of these many reasons. I want to be able to have a friend that I can laugh with, to do stupid things with, to relax with, to dance with and just enjoy as a friend and person in general.

As for yourself, do you want to have a friendship like theirs? If not, who do you consider to have the ultimate friendship goals?

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
