Just like any other relationship, friendships take work and time. With my friends at university, we've shared a lot of fun memories and experiences. From going out to the bars to having late night nachos and life chats at 1 AM, I believe my friends and I have put in really good time into building up this friendship.

Similar to how couples go on dates, it's important to also have friend dates. Every semester, we try to come up with a list of activities that we want to try out throughout the semester (we rarely accomplish much on the list but, A for effort, right?)

Here are some activities to try out with your friends! Feel free to add on to the list through the comments section below!

|| Movie Night ||

I love watching movies! Recently, I watched Inside Out with Caitlyn, which is such a cute movie (I highly recommend it). I find that when having a movie night, try and put more effort than just picking a movie on Netflix. Make sure it's a movie that everyone is excited to watch (as hard as it may be to find one). Next, get into the movie watching mode! Put on some comfy clothes/pajamas and make some snacks. Personally, my favourite snacks to have are nachos with lots of cheese, chicken, salsa, guac and sour cream!

Sometimes you find the most random sights and things when you aren't looking for it. Take the time to aimlessly explore your city, regardless of how well you think you know your city or how long you've lived there, you can always find new things or even find places you forgot about!


|| Watch a Sports Game ||

Even if you aren't the biggest sports fan, the atmosphere in a sports arena or stadium is rowdy and exciting enough to get almost anyone pumped for a game. In my second/sophomore year of university, Lauren and I went to watch a Toronto Maple Leafs game. Now I enjoy watching hockey, it's fun, but I am nowhere near as big of a hockey fan as Lauren. Regardless, I was super excited to go and though I can't remember for the life of me who they played, I will always remember that awesome atmosphere of the Air Canada Centre that night.

|| Go for Dinner ||

Because who doesn't love food! However, if you don't want to go out for dinner or can't afford it, have a potluck style dinner party. On every big holiday or event (i.e. Thanksgiving, Christmas, Super Bowl, Easter/End of the Year), we have a large dinner party at our house, where everyone brings a dinner item to share. There's always so much food, and you can pack up the leftovers to have for lunch the next day.

|| Have a Night Out ||


Pick a bar or a club or a night event and get ready all together! Whenever we go out, we pre-drink, while doing our makeup at the kitchen table.

|| Cards/Board Games ||

The classic games such as Cards Against Humanity, Heads Up, Settlers of Catan, Euchre or even President are fun to play but, try breaking out the games you played as a kid like MASH or Hangman!

|| Road Trip ||

For some odd reason, whenever I go on road trips, the driving part always happens to be one of the best parts. Blast some great tunes and just talk or play car games (21 questions?). You'd be surprised how much you can learn about another person when you're confined to a small moving vehicle. Try driving to meet up with a friend or to a new town/city and do some exploring together!

|| Beach Day ||

Spending a whole day at the beach can be super relaxing. Really take in the experience of being at the beach and the time you have with your friends! Don't forget to bring speakers and a playlist to play some music and possibly try making this into a potluck styled picnic as well. Beach days are super fun when planned properly! I will be making a Guide to the Perfect Beach Day (once the weather gets a little better) in the upcoming months.

|| Study Party ||


Only if you can ensure that actual studying will be done, instead of just talking about random things!

Whatever you decide to do, make sure everyone is excited to participate, (it makes all the difference if one person isn't as excited -- it can really bring down everyone else's mood). Don't forget to take some pictures to document the day too! (And have food and snacks -- this makes any event or activity better!)

I love to read comments from readers! They really make my day and I will respond back to you, so I can help make your day great too!
