Friyay!

People are living more and more for the weekends and by that the saying “Friyay” has come about. When I first saw this play on words surfacing on the internet I thought it was quite silly. I then realized it was actually quite brilliant and more people should find little things to get excited about. It gives everyone something to look forward to and there is not one person on this planet that doesn’t look forward to the weekend. So with that being said, here are some fun ideas for things to do on Friday:

1) Eat a cuisine you normally wouldn’t-
Mix it up and try something new, if you always have Italian try Greek, if you are a burger person step outside your comfort zone and try Mongolian! For a real different cuisine try Ethiopian.

2) Go see a Drive In Movie – Stock up on snacks and find your nearest drive in movie theatre and enjoy the show under the stars. If it’s too cold out have a themed movie night in!

3) Opposite Night Out- This one is all about switching up what you would normally do. If you usually hang out sipping beers in grungy bars, go out, get dressed up and head out for a night of dancing! Same goes if you usually go out clubbing, try a unique bar and stay awhile.

4) Go into the city and stay at a hotel for a night- Live the high life for a night and stay at a hotel. This is a fun way to get out of the house and do something different.

5) Sports Night- Grab a group of friends and head to the field or court and play whatever sport you feel like! This is exercise and a way to spend time with friends.

6) DIY Night– For all the girls reading this, save your money this weekend and have a DIY night. There are tons of cool websites that show you different craft ideas for your home or even your own wardrobe! Pinterest has lots of cool ideas too.

Enjoy and Happy Friyay!

Freedom. What is it? Who has it? Who wants it? Freedom is happiness, freedom is life, and freedom is everything. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you came from, who you are with, everyone and everything wants to be free. Freedom of your own mind, freedom from society, freedom of choice. It is our whole goal as human beings to be free. Whether you are working hard all year to go on vacation, whether you are waiting till 5 pm so you can go home from work, everything comes back to freedom. The music you listen to that makes you feel liberated is what we hold onto. Every adult wishes they could close their eyes and be dancing in an open field like no one is watching. For all of you that do not believe you want freedom in some way, let me tell you here that you do. Freedom is happiness. Freedom is not being alone; it is having people around you that make you feel free. It could be your loved ones, your friends, your job, it doesn’t matter what it is as long as you feel some type of freedom.

Doing what you want, being who you are, these are all things that give you that sense of freedom. Wherever you are, whoever you are with remember that freedom is yours and always will be. You are never locked away, you always have a say. Speak up, be yourself, you are always allowed to dance. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Freedom is a state of mind just as happiness is.

Namaste – Carly Jensen
