The Wonderful World Of 'Friends'

The Wonderful World Of 'Friends'

I didn't used appreciate this show as much as I do now.


For all my millennials out there Friends is near and dear to our hearts. It was a show we grew up watching and even though the characters were older than we were back in the 90’s we somehow connected with them. In this new age of online streaming where you can watch hours and hours of your favorite show commercial free I think I can speak for almost everyone when I say when in doubt, just watch Friends. I think now, as a college student I can relate with Joey, Chandler, Monica, Ross, Phoebe, and Rachel more than ever! So here are some GIFS to help get my point across...

Going off to college and being away from your parents is an interesting transition. You’re in this new environment and you don’t have your mom breathing down your back making sure you eat your veggies! Those who don’t gain a “Freshman Fifteen” might be some sort of sadist because really, how can you resist a buffet EVERYDAY?! (WSC has an open buffet for all 3 meals)

With college comes the worry of having a wondrous social life. I had this idea that I was going to be able to work and take classes full time, be a part of a sorority, join a club or two and have time to, ya know, sleep! That didn’t work out so well but, honestly, I’m content with it. Living off campus I have to work a lot to pay my bills. So, between work and classes/homework there are definitely days where I just don’t want to do ANYTHING!

Along the lines of being social, in college hopefully you make a good, solid friend group. People who have similar interests as you and are understand. Most importantly, you want friends who understand that you are all there for the same reason; to get a great education, to get a degree! We want to see those we care about succeed! It’s nice to have people around you to motivate you and be there to congratulate you on all of your accomplishments.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
