17 Things People With A Long Distance Best Friend Can Relate To

My best friend and I have been friends since we were in diapers. After only 10 short years, Hurricane Katrina separated us, but we will never not be best friends. Although long distance is tough, I have made a list of sixteen truths you'll know if you have a LDBF (long distance best friend.)

1. Seeing them becomes a huge annual or semi-annual event that requires a lot of strategic planning since you don't see them enough; you have to make sure every second is accounted for.

2. Facetime/Skype/any form of video chat becomes your go to because seeing them in person is not an option

3. Basically knowing all of each other's friends even though you've never met them in person, but when you do it's like you're all already friends.

4. And your home-friends know every single thing about your LBDF because talking about them seems to compensate their absence (not really, but still.)

5. Not having enough cute or recent pictures together to post on Instagram for her birthday.

6. Not being able to spend actual birthday's together

7. Being jealous of all the people who do get to hang out with your LDBFF

8. Not having time (or money) to travel 6+ hours to go visit them as often as you'd like

9. Thanking God for Snapchat

10. Doing random things like going to a party with them feels like a huge deal.

11. Blowing off non-long distance friends when they are in done because #priorities

12. But it doesn't really matter because they probably wouldn't understand the level of friendship between you and your long distance bestie.

13. Being extremely comfortable spending quality time with their family because you've known them for so long and they have accepted you as another one of their children.

14. Even though you many not have met their significant other more than a few times, you still have all the same feels as your bff.

15. In reference to #14, one complaint and he's on your shit list

16. You friendship has zero boundaries #sorrynotsorry

14 of the Most Revolutionary Short Films of All Time

Today's society places a ridiculous amount of importance on social media and what we see on our computer screens. Some of these short films you might have seen shared on Facebook. Some of them you may have never even heard of. Whatever the case may be, these productions have used thier position of power in our world today to spread a message. The messages vary from domestic violence, LGBTQ acceptance, self-love, the role of men in society to end the unfair treatment towards women and even the promotion of the furtherence of medical discovery in our country. Regardless of the message, each film advertises something that needs far more screen time than Victoria's Secret Fashion shows or Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Here are 14 of the best and most revolutionary short films to date:

Because the best part of flying isn't the flying.

I’m not sure that many would consider their airport experience to be “fun.” It is either boredom or panic, layovers so long that you forget what the outside world looks like or connections that are made by the skin of your teeth. It is the decision between buying expensive food and starving; it is hunting for outlets (because the airports I’ve been in seem to have about five); it is the stress of making it through security without being that person who holds up everyone else. In short, it is stressful and time-consuming.

New millennial jargon seems to arise everyday, one of the newest being “daddy." While people have always said things like “sugar daddy" or “come to daddy" (which sounds a tad creepy to me...okay, a lot creepy), now just referring to an attractive man or one's boyfriend/husband as simply “daddy" has become the norm. *Gag*

Clarity To Confusion

How I lost my certainty of the future.

Clarity To Confusion

Last year, I knew exactly what I would be doing with my life. Not just what major I wanted, although, I did know exactly what I was going to major in during college. I went further, though, and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I aimed to be a book editor and use my French and English majors to go into technical editing after going to grad school. Yet this semester, disenchantment hit. I had no clue what I wanted to do with my life anymore. I still loved the idea of being a book editor. I still loved reading. I just couldn't feel any passion towards the courses I had to take this semester. They were amazing, but they didn't excite me the way courses I would love should. They didn't inspire feelings of amazement at how awesome my major is. It was then I realized maybe my major wasn't for me.

The Procrastination Station At College

We all have checked into "Procrastination Station" more than once..

The Procrastination Station At College
Achieve Center - Wendy Loewen

In high school, being a procrastinator wasn't that big of a deal in my own opinion. But coming from a school that didn't really have strict deadlines on things, meaning you basically got points for turning it in be it exactly on or before the deadline, or 4 weeks later when you realize your grade needs to be raised up. So, when I came to college, I knew it would be different. It hasn't really been hard transitioning into a good student when it comes to out of class work and projects, but it hasn't been that easy either. I will use myself for example. I am enrolled in Introduction to Public Speaking, and it's not that is a hard class, because it isn't, but I just get lost in other things and before I knew it, I had to present a persuasive speech the next day. I also realized this at about 11:15 the night before, and had about half of my outlines done, and my visual aid hadn't been started on. Though I got it done, I promised myself that I would not ever just wait until the last minute with specifically this class, but with any other class also. After that little dilemma, I decided to look for ways that I could get things done in a timely manner. So, here I have listed a few things that I now use in order to get things done before the deadline so that I do not have to rush and worry about it the night before:
