11 Texts You'll Only Exchange With Your Best Friend

11 Texts You'll Only Exchange With Your Best Friend

Because we all need someone with no filter.

One of the best things about winter break besides time with the family and Christmas morning is finally having the time to catch up with long-lost friends. Whether it be your hometown crew, your long-distance bestie, or your best friend from school you just didn't see because finals had you posted up in a library cubicle, you can't wait for the moment when you can gush over everything you've recently sent each other via text or group chat.

Between the 2 a.m. "I miss you" texts and the long paragraphs about your current lack of a love life, you have a lot to discuss in person.

But before you sit down with your bestie to dissect the semester, let's recap the kinds of texts you've exchanged. You know, the ones you only send to your best friend and no one else. The kind of texts that show your true personality and display the fact that you have no filter. But it's OK because your best friend loves you anyway. And they'll probably (hopefully!) laugh out loud at this list.

1. The Vague Confession Text

We've all sent this. We texted that boy she told us not to text. We kissed that boy she told us not to kiss. We forgot to mail her a birthday package. We got a little too tipsy on Halloween. Whatever the case, there needed to be a warning -- it was just too much to explain via text. And, let's be honest, a true best friend knows this is something that needs to be addressed via FaceTime call or over coffee.

2. The Screenshot From Your Own Social Media Account

When you're not together 24/7, you miss out on the big life events. You see her tagged in a photo with a boy? You see her tagged in a photo with the girl in your sorority you weren't friends with before? You demand answers. As a best friend, you're privy to this information, after all.

3. The Advice Text

Because sometimes you need a therapist -- one you can contact at all hours of the day and night.

4. The "Stalker" Text

Because other times you need a private investigator.

5. The Gossip Text

You saw something on social media that needed immediate attention. Your mutual distaste for someone had to be addressed. The bridesmaid dresses in your ex-sorority sister's wedding needed to be commented on. It just had to be done.

6. The Love Life Update Text

When it comes to your romantic relationships, your best friend is always the first to be informed of any new developments -- probably while you're still on the date.

7. The "We Hate Boys" Text

And when that boy you fell hard for decides to make five other girls fall equally as hard at the same time, your best friend is always there with a killer solution. Figuratively, of course.

8. The "Haven't Heard From You Recently" Text

When you talk to someone daily, not receiving a text from them is alarming. Naturally, you overreact; it's the best-friend thing to do.

9. The Urgent Text

When you have breaking news that needs an introduction -- and is usually not as urgent as it seems. When something is actually wrong, we can assure you we will call, not text you the alarm emojis.

10. The "What Happened Last Night" Text

Some nights are meant to be forgotten; others are meant to be rehashed in the morning.

11. The Instagram #TBT Text

Thou shalt never steal a best friend's Instagram. I don't make the rules -- that's just how it goes.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

The Power Of The Butterfly

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity" - Ecclesiastes 3:1


April, coined as a rather "bipolar" month, in which the weather in London is either cold or warm. It is a time of transition where summer slowly but surely encapsulates winter. As a result, rain is the norm and may be viewed as a byproduct of the seasonal passage. One might be lucky to witness a rainbow with its arches passing above each side of the River Thames. A jaw-dropping display of multi-colored flowers blooms all throughout London's parks. Out of all things London has to offer in April my favorite would be the entrance of the butterfly.

When I was a little girl I lived minutes walk from Primrose Hill Park, a grassy hill with terrific views of London. I enjoyed dog walks, picnics, and trips to the playground at this park, but nothing made me more excited than the sight of the butterfly. This intricate creature had a certain charm to it which fascinated me! In fact, I was so awe-struck by it that upon my eighth birthday I was gifted a butterfly catching kit. I recall spending numerous hours whether it be on my street or at Primrose Hill trying to catch these speedy critters. However, I never quite could so eventually I gave up and found another form of entertainment.

All in all, as the transition from winter to spring, individuals will start to notice the arrival of the butterfly. Although as a child, I never was able to catch one of these magnificent creatures I am now reminded that their sense of lightness and joy represents freedom. Their free spirit and individualism is a reminder to not take life too seriously; and that one should, ultimately, embrace the changes thrown at them. Ultimately, the butterfly flourishes with transformation metamorphosing from a caterpillar to a beautiful winged species. And yes I recognize humans cannot go through metamorphosis, but the butterfly should inspire us to ensure growth in our own lives by accepting change. So go forth and remember it is ok to feel vulnerable as all good things come with time and perseverance.
