How to Save Up for Your First Out of Town Trip with Babe
Traveling with your babe for the first time isn't only stressful (hello, ever tried looking for the perfect date and the perfect place?), it can also get expensive especially if you're still depending on your parents for allowance. But if you think it's impossible, it's not at all, Candy Girls.
You can actually save up for your very first out of town trip with babe. You just have to commit to it together. Here are five ways you can save up for that, girl. Time to take down notes!
- Cook for each other instead of going out.
Since eating out can get really pricey most of the time, if you're still saving up for your travel funds, we suggest you try cooking for each other instead. It's cheaper to go and buy the ingredients from the market yourself and spend time in the kitchen cooking for the love of your life. Plus, the effort will surely make your hearts swell with joy.
- Marathon movies and TV series at home instead of going to the cinema.
Cinema tickets are quite expensive, so while you're still trying to save, we suggest you ask your boyfriend to come over and watch your favorite movies and TV series at home with you instead. You can also have some time to bond with each other's families and talk to each other even while the movie's playing. And ICYDK, movie nights are great for your relationship—there's even a study that proves that!
- Try junk food hacks at home if you want to eat comfort food instead of grabbing some fast food takeout.
If you're feeling a bit bored and you're both having a bad day—sooo bad that you just can't lift another finger anymore—why don't you try a few junk food hacks together? We actually have a few over here! You can both have fun, try new things, and de-stress together.
- Explore museums if you're itching to go out.
There are a ton of museums and libraries in the country that don't have entrance fees—start with the National Museum, Candy Girls. Not only will you learn a lot of things together, you'll also get to go out without spending a lot of money.
- Treat yourselves once in a while if you really need it.
Just because you're saving up doesn't mean that you can't have fun anymore. When you're both getting tired of doing the same things over and over again, treat yourselves to a fancy dinner out. But always remember not to touch your savings, okay? Live and go on a date that's within your budget.

Dear me in six years, I wonder how life will treat you when you’re already 26 years old. Will you be financially stable? Will you be working in an advertising agency while pursuing everything about the arts? Will you be doing freelancing and living in a condo by then? I don’t know since things are very uncertain. I hope by the time you graduate from college and face the real meaning of the world, you’ll know what the real purpose of doing and living in the art will be.
I know it’s been so tough ever since you turned 20 but that’s how life works, I guess. There will be a lot of hopes and trials, breakdowns, and breakthroughs but I have high hopes of you becoming the better version of yourself. You always do, though. You were never a quitter. Making decisions is getting harder and harder as you grow but I hope it doesn’t make you stop doing what you really love to do. You will face different people with different perspectives. You will feel like a stranger once again, it’s like you were back in your freshmen year. It’s going to be tougher than you’ve expected but you can do it. I believe you can.
Most of the time, people's perception of us as a strong person makes us feel that we are not entitled to be vulnerable because they might be disappointed for seeing our weak spots. And so when we are hurting, we are often scared of extreme emotions and so bury our feelings. We deny them, trying to avoid the pain we feel.
But by doing that, we are just allowing it to come back to us and haunt us. And when it comes back, it might be stronger and it will be harder for us to get over it than when we faced them first. I realized it just now that facing those emotions will scare them until they're gone. The saying 'Let it hurt until it hurts no more' goes true. Admitting your pain to yourself doesn't make you weak. It only proves that you are strong enough to acknowledge such extreme emotions without avoiding them. We are humans and it's okay if we hurt sometimes.
Before, sliding over the rainbows
Now, our hearts are bruised
Days once full of love and laughter
Became dawns of forfeited ever after
Smiles that bring ticklish sensations
Turned to cold question and answer
Figuring who would be the next instructor
The queen’s awake
Grappling to the happiness that the sorrow and sadness take
Going back to all the promises he couldn’t make
Poetry #2: YOUR VOICE
When you talk, your voice brightens my days. You provide me comfort in all the little things that you do. Your deep and mellow voice sends a tingling feeling inside me that makes me want to keep you in my life. I love talking to you every time, every day, every night and every minute if I could. You're someone just simply amazing.
