Your Weekend: May 8
It’s May, and chances are all of your friends from home are already finishing school for the year. Have you been getting non-stop snapchats of your friends at the beach? At Taylor Swift concerts in your hometown? Hugging your other friends from home with captions like “Reunited and it feels so good”? Me neither. My friends aren’t that basic.
