College can be a stressful time and between class, internships and work it can be difficult to find time to have a girls night. But here at HCPSU we strongly believe you should have at least one girls night a week, and here’s why...
1.) Your friends are your support system.
When you face challenges in college you’ll look to your friends for support. But, don’t wait until you need them to make time for them. See them at least once a week to maintain your friendship.
2.) It gives you something to look forward to during the week.
On those weeks when you have two tests in two different classes, each worth 30 percent of your grade, and a Biology lab report due, knowing that Friday night you’re spending time with your girls could be the motivation you need to stay focused in the library. Whether you and your friends decide to grab dinner at the Corner Room or get creative in the kitchen and cook a recipe none of you have ever tried, you’ll have a reason to get through the huge workload and get to your friends.
3.) Laughing reduces stress.
Laughing is the perfect way to unwind after your week is over. So get your favorite ladies together. It won’t matter what you do because as long as you’re having fun laughter will be sure to ensue. Not to mention laughing can substitute your ab workout for the day.
4.) You can watch girly movies without hearing complaints.
27 dresses, the Notebook and Sex and the City are all fair game when it’s movie night with your girls. Try to watch these movies with your boyfriend and he may not be as receptive, causing him to nitpick all of your favorite moments in the film. In order to truly enjoy a chick flick invite over your best girl friends, make a huge bowl of popcorn, stock up on candy, curl up on your couch and let the relaxation begin.
5.) Let’s face it, getting ready alone is no fun...
and guys will never understand why you have to change your outfit three times to find one that’s appropriate for the night. That’s something only your girls will fully comprehend.
