I wouldn’t call myself much of a social butterfly, but when
the weekend comes around, I always like to have plans or something to do. I
like to go ‘out out’, but drinking in the same old bars and seeing the usual
club-goers every weekend can get boring. I’m 20 years old and would rather
watch a marathon of Zac Efron films that go out and party – I know. But as a way to get motivated to do more, I’ve
created a list of things to do this weekend! TGIF!
#1 Attend a cooking
This is something I’ve never done, but I think would be such
a fun idea with a best friend.
#2 Take a random
train to somewhere
I try to keep it local, mainly because the price of train
tickets is ridiculous – but it’s spontaneous!
#3 Bake bake bake!
Cooking isn’t one of my skills (sadly), but I do enjoy
baking. Why not make a few yummy treats?
#4 Spend a day
watching Disney movies
I recently watched this Disney Medley on
YouTube and fell in love, bring on the movies!
#5 Have a water
Depending on the weather, water balloon fights can turn into
harmless fun in the sun.
#6 Watch Netflix… all
Netflix is no longer a pastime for me, it’s a lifestyle. If
you’re alone this week, find a friend in TV!
#7 Visit the nearest
I love a good beach! There’s nothing like a walk along the
sand to cheer me up.
#8 Go on a mini road
The weekend is unfortunately only two days, so a mini road trip
to the nearest town or city would be fun with friends and family.
#9 Have a camp/bonfire
They’re traditionally reserved for November 5 or just camping,
but I love the idea of s’mores in the back yard.
#10 Takeaway takeover
Order from all your favourite takeaway stores and feast with
#11 Throw a house
If I don’t want to head out in Leeds, a house party is an
alternative option. You just have to deal with the mess afterwards.
#12 Visit a carnival
I love the carnival setting, it’s relaxed and exciting… and
an excuse to indulge on candy floss.
#13 Attend a workout
Not my first choice, but always an option. It’s a lot more
fun with your mates too.
#14 Shopping spree!
Is there anything more fun? Time to start blowing those
#15 Visit a farmer’s
This is something I’ve always wanted to do but never had the
chance. Farmer’s markets have so much to offer and help encourage a healthy
#16 Go on a bike ride
Bike riding used to be part of my regular weekly routine and
I loved it! It’s amazing exercise and a chance to find some new scenery.
#17 Head to the zoo
Two of my favourites are Chester Zoo and Knowsley Safari
Park! I understand zoos are not for everyone, but are a great family weekend
#18 Watch beauty
tutorials on YouTube
You don’t have to be eager to learn, but they’re a lot of
fun to watch and admire.
#19 Backyard pool
The sun is out a little more, so why not throw a pool party
with a blow up pool and floaties?!
#20 A traditional
The Sleepover Club was one of my favourite TV shows growing
up, I’m no longer a teen, but I still love a girly night in.
