Recent studies show that Millennial is least generation to go out, due to economical problems (because let’s be honest, cool places are becoming overly expensive), and because we are kind of lazy (that’s probably the reason).
So, after long texts on the group chat and hours wasted on arguing on what to do tonight you have all either to just stay at home and call it a night or to crash at one of the squad’s; and in that case, here are 5 fun activities you can do:
We all need to be honest with ourselves for a minute and admit that watching a movie at home is way more comfortable than sitting in the cinema with crying babies. And with the brilliant invention of Netflix, you can stream movies easily. Plus, you can have a show marathon or binge watch the new season of your favorite season while passing on snacks and sipping on wine.
Cards Against Humanity:
This is a game for horrible people, no joke! The more players you have, the more fun you get. The game goes as follows: a player throws a card with a sentence, and the other players try to fill in the blanks with the most horrible things, the winner is the one who can fill in blanks with the most creative yet horrible phrase.
Yes, you don’t want to go out to sit in some crowded place, however, cruising by midnight in the empty Cairo streets is so refreshing, it actually makes you realize that Cairo is beautiful after all. Play some of your favorite tracks, sing along with your best friends and enjoy the night breeze.
We spend so much time at work, gym or running some errands; we don’t really sit down with our friends and catch up. A night in is a chance to know all the details about your friends, listen to them and share your thoughts with them. You can share your latest obsessions or tell them some embarrassing stories without being judged. That is the time where you can just sit back, talk and simply be yourself.
Every time I gather with my friends, I realize how talented each of us is. We are just always so busy with our 5 to 9 jobs that we don’t really sit around and create. You can organize a night in with your friends where you can all share your creative crazy ideas and work on them to become reality. You can turn your place to studio and shoot videos or a unique photography project. You have all night to unleash your talents and go crazy.
