10 Signs You Know Your Work Friends Are Your 'Real Friends'

Work isn't just for paying the bills.

10 Signs You Know Your Work Friends Are Your 'Real Friends'

1. We have no boundaries...

About anything anything! we are with each other probably more than our own families, we talk about friends, life and ourselves

2. Always down to eat.

It's not even a question anymore. We are always down for fam dinners whether it's Thai, sushi or some Roll N' Roaster.

3. They give you great advice.

They are the people outside your usual group of friends so who better that knows everything about your life to get advice from?

4. The group chat is always lit.

The conversations that go on between us no one would understand. Some days it's the normal convo,but most days call for absolute craziness.

5. "Fam night."

This entails all of us going to either a restaurant or a house and eating, drinking and laughing, laughing and more laughing.

6. Car rides are not just rides, they are parties.

With this particular group if a jam comes on we will sing every rap, every lyric to every song accompanied with dance moves. Old school jams are a top pick

7. No judging allowed.

The "openness" we have with one another is one of kind, the conversations that go on no one would understand... We don't believe in TMI.

8. We have celebratory dinners for each other.

Every birthday we gather the fam and choose a fav restaurant to go eat at and enjoy the birth of our friend.

9. They love to roast.

Okay so I'm mostly the focus of their roasting but that's because I'm the favorite (just kidding.)

10. They aren't just your work friends.

Work is really the only thing that brought us together but it's not what is keeping us together.

As I was writing this I realize maybe not everyone's work friends are like my work friends, they are crazy, funny, honest, open and blunt but above all that they are true, true real friends.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
