One of the things I enjoy most in life is spending every Saturday night watching movies with my friends. I’m 25 years old, and I’ve outgrown spending my weekends at dingy nightclubs. All I need is my friends, snacks, and a good chick flick!
Luckily, my IPTV subscription allows me to watch a rom-com every night!
If you’re like me, then you like a good sappy comedy as well. I’m here to tell you how I spend my “girls’ night in” so you can do the same.
Before the night begins
I work as a translator in a legal firm, so my job can get really stressful. But, then again, what job doesn’t?
I’m obligated to take my work home with me most days. That’s why it’s pretty obvious why I can’t wait for the weekdays to be over so I can finally relax and enjoy my weekend!
A soon as I get home, I take a quick shower and put on my comfy fluffy PJ’s. Then, I call up my friends to see what they’re up to. It’s not often that they’re too busy for a girls’ night in, so I call them more out of habit. Then, we decide what we’re going to eat, drink, and most importantly, which movie we’re going to watch. To be honest, it usually takes us a while to decide, since there are so many movies and shows to choose from, and not enough Saturdays!
While I’m waiting for my friends to arrive, I usually flip through the channels to keep myself entertained. Since we usually meet around the same time, I like to watch a show on my own to keep myself occupied.That way, I don’t even notice how much time has gone by!
Let the fun begin!
As soon as I hear the doorbell followed by the cheerful voices of my friends, I know a great night is ahead of me. It’s time to get the snacks and have some fun! First, we check out what rom-coms feature our favorite male actors, and then we start fantasizing about them. Then, once we’ve finished the first bottle of wine, we move on to something more upbeat, in order to keep the atmosphere cheerful. Honestly, there’s no shortage of movies and shows to choose from, and we usually end up watching TV and talking all night!
Ah, Sunday morning. The morning that most of us like to dedicate to relaxation. Especially after a fun night full of food, wine, gossip, and great shows. What better way to relax than by watching your favorite shows?
My ritual is to first pour myself a huge mug of coffee. Then I snuggle up on the couch with my dog and watch reruns of my favorite shows.
After all, tomorrow is Monday, and Monday means work, which, of course, means stress. That’s why I cherish my Sunday shows since they completely distract me from what lies ahead.
