15 Times The Golden Girls Were the Ultimate Squad Goals

Thank you for being a friend.

15 Times The Golden Girls Were the Ultimate Squad Goals
Huffington Post

Whenever we think about friends, we think of one of two things: A group of people you form a bond with over similar interests and hobbies, or: The classic hit television series that swept the nation and can now be streamed on your own time through Netflix. For me, I ultimately take the former -- I consider them my own partners in crime. Being close, we often speculate about normal things such as which member of One Direction we would fight in "The Hunger Games" or which Mary-Kate and Ashley movie reigns supreme (we're a rowdy bunch, I know). And when we're older, I'd like to think that we'd still be living it up in a nursing home having wheelchair races, doing shots of NyQuil and getting all of that elderly booty. But aside from all that, I'd like to think that we would all be laughing, gossiping and eating lots and lots of cheesecake. Sound familiar?

Before audiences were familiar with the likes of "Friends'" Rachel, Phoebe and Monica on -- and the dynamic duo of Snooki and JWoww -- Bea Arthur, Estelle Getty, Rue McClanahan and Betty White were being their sassy, honest and wonderful selves once a week for audiences everywhere. Whenever these ladies got together, you were in for a treat (and I'm not just talking about the cheesecake). Even though they provide the ideal retirement life, their antics and actions can be admired and implemented now. Old in age, but young at heart, these ladies prove time and time again that friendship never goes out of style.

1. They always look out for one another.

2. They know no bounds, but only because they care.

3. They can recognize each other before they even come into the room.

4. Even in the stickiest situations, they never abandon one of their own.

5. Let’s be serious, exercise never looked this good.

6. From pulling an all-nighter for a test to watching YouTube videos until three in the morning, they know when you’ve reached your limit and it’s time to hit the hay.

7. They always know what food to order.

8. They know when to push you to get out there and mingle.

9. They know how to get down at the clubs.

10. But they’re also content with a quiet evening at home.

11. They accept that their craziness is merely a part of all their relationships.

12. They’re willing to give whatever the other may need.

13. They never judge.

14. But they also know when to give it to each other straight. #LoveWins

15. And finally, they know the only solution for a problem is dessert.

Cheers to the Golden Girls, for setting goals for friendship since 1985. Here’s hoping we all can be half as courageous, hilarious and loving as these women.

And I'd like to dedicate this article to my own group of girls that I consider especially golden. Thank you for always being my friend.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
