I love the weekends; they’re a break from the hectic school week, something I find myself craving a lot during the month of March. Often, my friends and I will go out to a party or two on Friday and/or Saturday night(s), where we’ll hang out for a while and usually dance together. It’s a lot of fun most of the time and a great stress-reliever. Sometimes, though, I don’t want to go out. Whether it’s because parties can have too much stimulation and that’s not what I want that night or I’m too tired or it’s too cold outside, there are some nights that I don’t feel like going to a party. Sometimes, I feel like this pup:
- Have a game night. I’ll invite a bunch of friends over and we’ll play some games- Apples to Apples, Cards Against Humanity, Uno, anything goes! For more suggestions, check out this article by another Her Campus Bates writer!
- Spa night. Put on some soothing music, get out a face mask and nail polish, and have a chill night in, either with a friend or by yourself. Settle in with a good book and a fuzzy blanket and, if you’re of age and into it, pour yourself a glass of wine.
- Go to bed early. As a college student, I don’t get as much sleep as is recommended for my health. It’s never a bad idea to catch up on some snoozing when you can.
- Have your own dance party. You get to pick your own music, and you don’t need to feel self-conscious about anyone else watching and judging you.
- Have a movie night. Pop some popcorn, get some friends together, find a common room if there’s one free, wear your coziest PJ’s or lounge clothes, and watch a movie. It’s a classic go-to for me and my friends.
- Bake some goodies. I feel so relaxed when I bake, so if you can manage it, make some cookies or brownies. No need to share them if you don’t want to!
