10 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Friends

As Janice would say "oh...my...god" some of these facts are surprising!! I recently started watching Friends (shout out to Netflix for making it possible), and some of the weird things I've learned about the show have amazed me. I bet bigger Friends fans will be totally shocked by most of these facts!
1. Ellen Degeneres turned down an offer to play the role of Phoebe. I'm glad she did because The Ellen Show rocks and I'm not sure anyone could pull off Phoebe's eccentric personality the way Lisa Kudrow does.
2. Before they landed on the name Friends, they tossed around a couple other ideas like Insomnia Café, Friends Like Us, Across the Hall, Once Upon a Time in the West Village or Six of One. Personally, I like the simplicity of Friends because no offense, Once Upon a Time in the West Village really doesn't roll of the tongue.
3. Central Perk was originally going to be a diner, but eventually producers decided on a cafe instead. I'm glad they did, it gives Friends a much cozier feel than I think a diner would have.
4. The cast made $22,000 for the first episode, and by the end of the series, they each made $1 million per episode. It just goes to show how popular the series really became.
5. After filming the last episode, each cast member took a piece of the sidewalk from outside Central Perk as a keepsake. Asphalt is not necessarily my idea of a charming keepsake, but it's still pretty cute.
6. No one besides the main six ever sat on the orange couch. It became an unspoken rule that that part of the set was Friends only.
7. Only super observant Friends fans would notice this one - Monica's apartment number was changed from 5 to 20 when they realized she was supposed to live on the second floor. A good catch by a continuity error expert.
8. Courtney Cox was originally supposed to play Rachel. This one's weird to think about when you only picture Monica and Ross as siblings.
9. Ross stays 29 years old for three seasons, a continuity error that someone must have missed. In seasons 3, 4 and 5 he mentions being 29 even though years have obviously passed. I'm only on season 2 and I can't wait to get there because now I'll definitely notice!
10. Last, and definitely cutest, the cast would huddle up before filming every episode to wish each other good luck.

Friends is my favorite show ever. My husband makes fun of me, of how much I watch it. The only fact I did not now, was Ellen, turning down the part. I'm glad she did. Phoebe is awesome. I still laugh so hard when I watch it, even if I seen it 100x before. My favorite phrase, was Ross saying "pivot". Lmao.
great card. i am a huge fan of FRIENDS. i am so glad that it was named FRIENDS and not something weird
@lauraFisher Yeah, comedy is funny. You're either into it or not. Like, someone just posted about BoJack Horseman. https://www.vingle.net/posts/975187-Understanding-the-Mind-with-BoJack-Horseman Seriously, I have TRIED (really hard) to like this show. And I must be dim because I don't get it. I really want to like it but it's pure crickets on my end. People in my circle think I am crazy. :(
Oh, I LOVE Big Bang Theory! Sheldon and Penny give me LIFE!!!!! hahaha
Not only does Ross stay 29 for 3 years, but they also accidentally gave him two birthdays 😂

What Challenges Are You Facing?
Hello my loves. Long time no see! SOOO MUCH has happened since I have last seen you all and I do want to give you guys a rundown about it all (if you would like to know^^) but this card isn't about me. It's about all of you. Last night, one of my heroes (Superwoman on YT) posted a twitter for her 1000 vlog and asked this same question, and what did she do? She listened. She responded to multiple posts of people who were struggling and is going to reach out to them by helping paying for tests, rent, tuition, and just sending love to the people who love her. So I was thinking, after every single thing I have been through, why can't I do the same thing? Of course, I can't send money to you all like she can (cause that college student broke life) but I can do one better. Create a safe environment for all of us. As I have been MIA, I have seen so many miscommunications with people on here, or even people getting hurt by something that someone has said or done and you know what I say to that? WHO. CARES. Who cares if one person is more obsessed over a band than someone else? Who cares if multiple cards about one person or band or spread all over this site? We are here to spread the love of our bands and biases - not to start wars or to be rude to others. I wanted to remind us of this. Vingle has had a special place in my heart for the last two years and I want to make it a special place once more. And that starts now. For the next hour, anyone who comments what is going on in their life, I want to make your day a little brighter. Leave the KPOP band or person that has touched you or always been there for you and I will make you a card highlighting them. So please, allow me to lend you all a shoulder to lean on as you all have for me in the past. Allow me to do this for all of you because even if you think no one is there for you, you are wrong. Make sure to leave what challenges you are facing at this point in your life along with that special kpop person and I will get back to you! Even if I miss you in that first hour, I will at least comment throughout the day to let you know that I did not miss it. Now, LET THE COUNTDOWN BEGIN!!! *Savage Thunder Mafia* @narutobandgeek @EvilGenius @JessonWang9094 @twistedPuppy @ElleHolley @WooJaii0914 @ScarletMermaid @KaiLuhan4ever @Helixx @Isolate @BBxGD ⚜ House Of Disquietude Taglist ⚜ Queens/Kings @geekywriterabby @Bangtanss @AimeeH @Lexxcisco @SkyBlast @Jaerinn @hskswife @MelissaGarza @SaraDarWish @InfinitySky RoyaltyFamily @AbbyRoscoe @SugaKookieV @LemonLassie @SimplyAwkward @KenyaMendoza @SarahHibbs @EmilyCayetano @twistedPuppy @sarahdarwish @TeaTimeFoxy ~The Memeists~ A – @ArtCrazy @awkwardjazzy B – @BetseyBleau C – @cns1391 @CrystalBlunt D – @destiny1419 E – @ESwee F – G – @Gaarita100 H – @HeichousRegalia I – @imiebegay14 @IsoldaPazo J – @jademarie4567 @JaxomB @jimin21abs K – @KassandraSosa @KassieXiong @KenyaMendoza L – M – @MaggieHolm @MaelstromVIP @ManduBum @MaritessSison @MelissaGarza @micahsaysnihao @MissMinYoongi @mrsyookihyun N – O – @OhItsJas @OppasManBun P – Q – @QueenPandaBunny R – @roseeoh S – @SerenaArthurs @Shadyllamas @Shericeden @SierraBecerra @StefaniTre @Stephany123 @StephaniePoore @SomiBean @sordidgame @Sulgie T – @2ilVer @TeaTimeFoxy @tinafalcon22 @TKOtaku @turntuptae U – @UnicornSuga V – @VKookie47 W – @warning @WolfLune X – @xoxorittie Y – @YviLole15 Z – ~The Forgetfuls~ A – @ArtCrazy @awkwardjazzy B – C – @CrystalBlunt D – @destiny1419 E – @ESwee F – G – @Gaarita100 H – @HeichousRegalia I – @imiebegay14 @IsoldaPazo J – @JaxomB K – @KassieXiong @KendraReeve @KenyaMendoza L – M – @MaggieHolm @ManduBum @MaritessSison @MelissaGarza @MissMinYoongi mrsyookihyun N – O – @OppasManBu P – Q – @QueenPandaBunny R – @roseeoh S – @SerenaArthurs @Shadyllamas @SierraBecerra @sordidgame T – @TeaTimeFoxy @tinafalcon22 @TKOtaku @turntuptae U – @UnicornSuga V – @VKookie47 W – @WolfLune X – Y – @YviLole15 Z – ~The Ghosts~ A – @ArtCrazy @awkwardjazzy B – C – @CrystalBlunt D – @destiny1419 E – @ESwee F – G – @Gaarita100 H – @HeichousRegalia I – @imiebegay14 @IsoldaPazo J – @JaxomB @jimin21abs K – @KassieXiong @KendraReeve @KenyaMendoza L – M – @MaggieHolm @ManduBum @MaritessSison @MelissaGarza @MissMinYoongi mrsyookihyun N – O – @OppasManBun P – Q – @QueenPandaBunny R – @roseeoh S – @SerenaArthurs @Shadyllamas @SierraBecerra @sordidgame T – @TeaTimeFoxy @tinafalcon22 @TKOtaku @turntuptae U – @UnicornSuga V – @VKookie47 W – @WolfLune X – Y – @YviLole15 Z – ~The Genies~ A – @ArtCrazy @awkwardjazzy B – C – @CrystalBlunt D – @destiny1419 E – @ESwee F – G – @Gaarita100 H – @HeichousRegalia I – @imiebegay14 @IsoldaPazo J – @JaxomB K – @KassieXiong @KendraReeve @KenyaMendoza L – M – @MaggieHolm @ManduBum @MaritessSison @MelissaGarza @MissMinYoongi mrsyookihyun N – O – @OppasManBun P – Q – @QueenPandaBunny R – @roseeoh S – @SerenaArthurs @Shadyllamas @SierraBecerra @sordidgame T – @TeaTimeFoxy @tinafalcon22 @TKOtaku @turntuptae U – @UnicornSuga V – @VKookie47 W – @WolfLune X – Y – @YviLole15 Z -

HOME MADE AROMATHERAPY CANDLES
Who doesn’t love candles? These Homemade Aromatherapy Candles make the ultimate relaxation gift and the perfect use for all of those old mason jars. You just need wax, wicks and essential oils. That’s right! essential oils are what help you make homemade scented candles meaning you can customize them yourselves! DIY Aromatherapy Candles. These Homemade Aromatherapy Candles are so easy to make. The hardest part is finding the supplies! I love this how-to from Tate tots and Jello. She even shows you how to make your own wicks! Make sure you have enough oil for the amount of candles you’re making. If you’re doing a larger batch, try using an essential oil diffuser like this one. The Aromatherapy Candles have a calming scent that will help you relax and get ready for bed. Just about the first thing that every person comments on when they walk into our apartment is our excessive collection of candles. C and I collect candles and spend an exorbitant amount on candles each month. Watching us in West Elm is like watching a kid in a candy store. We’re always trying to figure out how we can buy another candle. And every time we do, I make a mental note to myself that it’s time to find another place for all of these candles. We are never going to burn them all! But then we come home and light one, and before you know it the whole collection is burning. This particular candle is one of my favorites because it smells like the beach (I love the beach).  Today I’m sharing my best tips for making homemade aromatherapy candles (or essential oil candles because that’s pretty much what they are!) as well as ways you can avoid making the same mistakes I have the habit of making every single time. Essential Oil Candle Making: Step-by-Step Making candles with essential oils is surprisingly easy. After you’ve gathered your materials, the process will take you less than 10 minutes. STEP 1: Let’s Talk Soy Wax In terms of ingredients, these scented candles are fairly easy to make. All you need are soy wax flakes and essential oils (plus your tools). Why soy wax? Well, it's naturally made and very environmentally friendly. It's also odorless, non-toxic, biodegradable and clean burning. And did I mention that soy wax candles burn for up to 50% longer than paraffin wax candles? So the candles are not only good for your health but also for the environment!  Soy wax will melt fairly quickly and is easy to manage, however you will want to use some kind of disposable device for stirring as it sticks to everything and is difficult to remove once it’s set. I use a wooden chopstick that I can toss once I’m done the candle making process. Step #2: Placing the Wick Begin by taking your wick and placing it in the center of your candle mold. To make sure that you’re centered, use a marker to mark the spot where you want to place the wick. Next, gently press the wick into the center of your candle mold until it touches both sides. This will ensure that you have an even burn across all parts of your candle. STEP 3: Add your Essential Oils Aromatherapy candles are effectively essential oil candles. If you’re curious to learn more about aromatherapy check out this post on Essential Oils 101. You’ll need to add about 80-120 drops of essential oil. I recommend using a concentrated oil blend. I used do TERRA’s Deep Blue for my candle. It’s an amazing blend of essential oils that really does make you feel relaxed and calm. You can also add in some dried herbs or flowers if you like. Just be sure to use non-toxic herbs, dried flowers or even citrus peels! Again, refer to this post for more information about the benefits of different essential oils. Feel free to mix-and-match too! Just add the oils directly to the melted soy wax. Step #4: Prepare Your Wax Melts Next, take your melting pot and add a few drops of your scented oil to it. Heat up your oil until it is melted and then add in your wax melts. The wax melts should be evenly distributed across the melting pot, but not piled on top of each other. When the wax melts are fully melted, you can then begin to pour them into your candle mold. The pouring process will be easier if you use a metal funnel that has been pre-soaked in hot water for at least 10 minutes. Make sure that you avoid using plastic funnels as they can easily melt under the heat of the wax. Step #5: Placing Your Wax Beans Take your wax beans and begin to gently place them around the wick. Try to avoid overfilling your mold as this will make it difficult for you to remove your candle later on. Be sure that you place the wax beans into the center of each well so that they can be covered by the hot wax and burn evenly. Step #6: Enjoy Your Candle! After your candle has been poured, let it cool for a few hours before using it. Once you’re ready to use it, simply place the candle in an area where there is good air circulation and light the wick. The wick should be trimmed to approximately 1/4 inch before you light it up. If you have any questions about trimming the wick or anything else, check out our candle making tips page. Candle making is an easy process, and it’s a great way to save money on candles. If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of soy candles, check out our candle making tips page for more information.
