17 Times You Knew They Were Your Best Friend

There's no ship like friendship!

17 Times You Knew They Were Your Best Friend

When I was in middle school and beginning to establish my online/social media presence, there was nothing my friends and I loved more than tagging each other in cheesy pictures and having hour-long wall-to-walls filled with cliché quotes we lifted from brainyquote.com about how we were ~<3 bEsT fRiEnDs <3~. Years later, I still have all the love in the world for my OG #RideOrDies, but I've gotten to thinking about the moments-- especially with my friends at college-- that serve as clear indicators that the line between friendship and nap-in-the-same bed, pee-in-the-same-stall-at-the-bar *best* friendship has been crossed:

1. The moment you stop needing words to communicate.

2. When you graduate from sharing homework and lab notes to the more important things like Netflix accounts and bottles of wine.

3. The moment you realize you love all the same things.

4. The moment they offer to tell off/maim/kill someone for you.

5. When you both understand and abide by an unspoken no-judgment rule.

6. When they start hating someone just because you do, no questions asked.

7. And they hate them more aggressively than you do.

8. When they remember your exact coffee order AND surprise you with it.

9. They ask you to approve all of their instas before they post, especially the ones you're in.

And you do the same.

10. And the second you post a picture, they automatically throw you the comment and like.

*Important note: they are NOT a true friend if they comment and don't like it. Commenting without the accompanying like is pretty much grounds for a restraining order, actually.

11. They watch you carefully when you're out to make sure you don't text/call an ex.

12. Pigging out on junk food together turns into not only a favorite pastime, but also a point of pride.

13. The first time you barge into their room without even thinking about knocking.

14. When you officially establish that you have a song.

15. And when it comes on, you pretty much lose your sh*t together.

16. When they take the place of a significant other in your life.

17. The moment you realize you've had someone in mind the entire time you were reading this.

Go forth and share this with your best friends! And no matter what, never let them go. If they can keep you from sending a risky text AND remember your venti four-pump non-fat iced chai latte with light ice and one Equal, they're keepers.

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.

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.
