Galentine’s day is finally here! You know what that means? It’s time for a lot of Leslie Knope quotes and a celebration of friendship with your BFFs.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the holiday: What is Galentine’s day? Let Leslie Knope define it for you.
Every February 13th, Leslie Knope and her lady friends leave their husbands and their boyfriends at home and just kick it breakfast style. Valentine’s Day may be about celebrating love, but Galentine’s day is all about friendship! Ladies celebrating ladies. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like the best idea ever.
This is why today, I collaborated with two awesome bloggers to bring you some Galentine’s day-related content! I’m sharing with you 10 ideas of things you can do with your girlfriends to celebrate Galentine’s day!
Who else is excited to finally be on winter break? *raises hand* This semester might not have been as hard as my summer one, but I’m still eager to be on winter break. I only have a couple more days to go through before I get there, though, but trust me I’m counting them down! (If you’re already on winter break, you are SO lucky and I envy you so much right now)
But while I love being on break from college, one of the things I struggle with most is staying busy. It’s so tempting to just lay around and do nothing all day for three weeks straight, but trust me, you’re not doing yourself any favor! It’s important to unwind and take some time to relax, but you also have to remain at least a little bit busy so it’s not too hard to go back to your regular routine when the new semester starts! That’s why I gathered some ideas of things to do during the holiday break to remain just busy enough!
December is both my favorite month of the year and the one I dread the most. Why? Well, of course, I love December because that means Christmas is coming (WINTER BREAK!!), but it also means that I have to take finals, which is pretty scary. While you need to be studying for finals, everyone else is posting cute pictures of their Christmas tree on Instagram. I don’t know about you, but during finals week, I can’t even THINK about anything Christmas-related. I mean, do I really have time for that? Well, there are a few ways you can still get in the holiday spirit during finals!
I don’t know about you, but Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. I simply love the festive ambiance and the thrill that comes before the 25th of December. As a child, Christmas used to be a big deal back at home. My parents decorated the house, we baked cookies, we decorated the tree, and I simply had a blast preparing for Christmas. Nowadays, things are calmer. We still decorate, but the ambiance is simply not the same. Now everyone is under stress because we need to buy the perfect gift for one another, I have to undergo finals, and it tends to get pretty busy at work. I have to find other ways to get into the Christmas spirit. One of my favorite ways to do is by watching Christmas movies! So today I lined up my 25 favorite Christmas movies that will put you in the Christmas mood, no doubt!
