30 Things To Thank Your Best Friends For

30 Things To Thank Your Best Friends For

When you're lucky, those friends become family.

Emily Gemma

Friends are an essential piece to the puzzle in everyone’s life. As human beings, we thrive off of the relationships we have with our friends just like we would with those in our family. In fact, if we are lucky, our friends eventually become more like family. During these past 3.5 years in college, looking back now, I’ve realized just how much my friends have helped me make it to where I am now and I couldn’t be more thankful.

I want to thank you for...

1. Always listening to my stories and jokes no matter how many bad ones I’ve told you.

2. Then, letting me know just how bad it was so I don’t embarrass myself by telling it again to someone else.

3. Understanding my sarcastic humor and being willing to dish it right back.

4. Forgiving me when I accidentally take the joke to far, because you know I didn’t mean it.

5. Never failing to be honest with me.

6. Taking the most ratchet selfies with me.

7. Then posting them for everyone to see.

8. Wearing sweats with me because I don’t feel like looking “cute.”

9. Always being down to go to Taco Bell with me at any hour of the night.

10. Being someone I can always count on when life has got me down.

11. Taking my side even when I’m wrong because you’re always in my corner.

12. Constantly making me laugh at the little things in life.

13. Knowing when I’m not acting like myself and am about to break.

14. Then knowing whether or not it’s something I want to talk about or just need you to sit with me.

15. Understanding that I’m weird but you’re weird too so you’re okay with it.

16. Being available for a spontaneous movie night when studying just isn’t going to be an option.

17. Letting me treat your closet as my own.

18. Not freaking out when I have to cancel or reschedule plans.

19. Taking time out of your day to see how mine is going.

20. Genuinely caring about our friendship by making an effort non-stop.

21. Lending me your family and home when mine isn’t easily accessible.

22. Then making me feel like part of your family.

23. Liking the same Netflix shows as me (or pretending to so I don’t have to watch them alone).

24. Never pressuring me into doing something I don’t want to.

25. Sharing your food with me when my stash gets low.

26. Trusting me to DJ in your car while you’re driving.

27. Knowing my biggest secret and not telling a soul.

28. Sleeping on my couch because I get scared sometimes.

29. Making me a better person just by being a part of my life.

30. Knowing all of my flaws and choosing to love me anyways.

This list isn’t specific to just one individual friend, but all of the friends I’ve made along the way who continue to be such a big part of my life. You continue to be there for me and I hope you know how much that means. If you weren’t aware, I’d do the same for you any day of the week. You really are the best friend a girl could ask for and I’m grateful I get to call you one of mine.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
