Life has changed a lot in the past 2-3 years.
And while in many ways it’s definitely been for the worse, some things aren’t better or worse, just…well, different.
For many of us, our social lives took a turn, so if you’re wondering what other people are doing for fun (or not) on Friday night these days, look no further – these people are giving us a peek behind the curtain!
1. Sounds ideal, to be honest.
I just pour a rose, think about the week on my porch and contemplate eternity and then I go to bed at 8.
2. Jammies are the best.
Friday night is my night to be a total lounge lizard! Pj’s go on way before dinner and I read, watch tv, go online and my house is locked up early!
My time to wind down after a week of work, people, idiots, etc…..lol. HOME sweet HOME!
3. The dogs are loving this.
I ordered a Hawaiian pizza and am watching inception with my dog.
4. What about when summer’s over?
Currently chilling at the pool with the kids, then I’ll roll a fat blunt to smoke with my husband when the kids go to sleep.
5. Popcorn in bed?!
Currently eating popcorn on my bed in comfy clothes while I alternate between scrolling through reddit and reading a book
6. Simple but honest.
I swim in the pool with my family, eat dinner in our bathing suits, put my daughter to bed.
Watch streaming with my wife, bang out said wife before bed, sh*%post on Reddit/sh*%post on group text throughout. Repeat every Friday.
It ain’t much, but it’s honest work.
7. I’m sensing a pattern.
Right now I’m doing some left over blow from a wedding last week, bottle or merlot and listening to music videos on YouTube alone in my studio apartment.
(How can you say you live in New York City without saying you live in New York City)
8. A whole lot of nothing.
Not a damn thing. Or at least that’s what I do. Currently I am sitting on my couch, there’s a beer and a freshly loaded bong on the table, some Ancient Aliens playing the background, the cats are snoozing, and the husband is playing some game on the PC.
Dinner is en route, and we’ll just continue to get blasted for the rest of the night while we watch The Expanse. Happy Friday!!
9. Sounds chill.
Start drinking while I cook dinner for the kids and have a cheeky puff. Then jump on the pc and watch stuff with friends in discord.
10. Nothing much has changed.
Same thing as as 15 years ago, play world of Warcraft! This time with real life friends!
11. I love it.
It depends, but it’s always chill. I’ll be either with friends, having a couple drinks at our usual pub, or chilling with the boyfriend.
(And tonight, chillin in bed with the cat and a book)
12. A lot of staring.
Order, then eat dinner, watch a few youtube channels, wait for it to get dark so I can take the dog in and go to bed, try not to think about how fun Friday nights were when I was a drinker.
Stare at the engine across the garage and plan my next steps in the rebuild, hell its dark enough….
13. I approve.
On this Friday night, I’m currently wine drunk-ish sprawled on the couch, petting my dog, while watching old episodes of Last Week Tonight on YouTube… so there’s that.
I’m getting ready to go to sleep and it’s not even 7 pm. I may be officially old because I’m very excited about it 😂
14. Virtual gaming.
My college gaming club has a gaming night on Friday. It’s all virtual and theres some different themes of games they try to encourage people to play (though obviously you can play whatever you want they just set things up to make it easy to play whatever game with them on Friday nights).
For example they’ll set up a minecraft server for people to play or whatever.
I’m sure it has been helping a lot of people stay safe inside while still being able to connect with others and make friends.
15. Didn’t expect those last couple.
Drink, Get really high, and watch World War Two documentary’s.
Maybe cry about how lonely I am.
16. He’s got it all planned out.
Well sir miss let me tell YOU. After work I’m going to Costco. I’m gonna get one of those Hella cheap 1.75L bottles of whisky for 19 bucks and a rotisserie chicken (making chicken tacos). Then head down to the pot shop and pick up 3.5g of something nice.
After that I’ll head home, smoke a bowl, take the dog on a bike ride, and then sit in the dark and analyze stocks over the weekend for trading on Tuesday.
Cry myself to sleep.
There isn’r time for that during the week.
18. Sounds delightful, actually.
Well I just spent 7 hours gaming with my puppy asleep at my feet making myself increasingly stronger cocktails.
19. Good idea.
Lately it’s been introducing my daughter to the classics.
Tonight it’s gonna be Hook.
Last week it was The Goonies.
We need more Dustin Hoffman as Captain Hook.”
20. If you know, you know.
Same thing we do every night Pinky.
TRY TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD.
21. Friends are good.
Friends get together for a potluck dinner – everyone brings a special dish:
The food choices are all coordinated by a person in the group who’s good at planning menus so that there’s variety and “balance.”
22. That about sums it up.
It’s 10.30pm and I’m lying in bed on reddit.
Usually play video games and bask in the relief of not having to work for two days
23. It sounds better now.
Before the pandemic, I worked every Friday. Now I chill at home with my sister and my dog and we watch horror movies.
We do have a spare seat and plenty of microwave popcorn !
24. No one likes the grind.
Played video games with my youngest, watched a film with the family and thought about how great it is I don’t have to get up in the morning.
The kids went back to school this week. They have not enjoyed having to get up and out of the house before 8am.
25. Sounds major.
I just went and got all the different kinds of M&Ms at the gas station mixed them all into a bowl so me and my girlfriend can watch the super fan cuts of The Office.
26. Hey, plans are plans.
Last Friday I was like wow I actually have plans tonight.
Plans: getting ice cream with Grandma
27. Box wine for the win.
Sitting on the front porch drinking some crisp white box wine, while I have a garage sale.
The wife and I decided to sell everything, buy a new 5th wheel camper and spend the next year or two traveling around to all the national parks and see anything & everything we want to see. We can grow/run our business stuff remotely for the most part, so before we build the dream home we decided to stretch a little.
Step 1. Sell everything….this is harder and a bigger step than I planned for. Step 2. Sell home….paid 161k 3 years ago, listing for 350k…gotta love real-estate bubbles. Step 3. LOAD the RV and hit the road! Even the kids are excited.
28. Living the dream.
I knit while watching a murder/crime documentary or horror movies.
I recently took up the hobby and often Cold Case Files all the time while knitting lol.
29. Same old.
I play DnD or Vampire the Masquerade.
Have two beers.
30. How dare.
Go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all of this to blow over.
31. Everyone’s a comedian.
Well for this Friday…
I’m going to steal the Declaration of Independence.
32. Add some takeout and I’m there.
Every Friday night I have a nice dinner and then do laundry while I watch tv.
I look forward to it all week.
33. Not everyone gets Fridays off.
Work. Work. Work.
Friday nights are insanely busy always and tonight, I want to cry.
Yeah, I have to say that a lot of these sound pretty ok to me.
What are you doing this weekend? Tell us about it in the comments!
