To The Friends, I Never Saw Coming This Year

To The Friends, I Never Saw Coming This Year

The best relationships to ever have are the ones you never saw coming.

I've heard people say that you don't choose who your friends are and I don't believe that at all.

I think you choose who you want to be friends with by hanging out with that person and making a strong connection with them, but I also believe that you can become friends with someone that you didn't expect to be friends with. That doesn't mean that you didn't choose to be friends with them and ended up being friends with them anyway; it means that they entered your life out of nowhere and you didn't even know it was happening until after you became close with them. I can say that most of the friends I made this year were very unexpected.

The Friends I Made Because Of Theater:

We all had the same goal: to put on a good production of "The Addams Family". On the first day of rehearsal, I thought that it wasn't going to be fun at all, but when we put on our last show, I was sad to say goodbye. Everyone that was part of the cast and crew was awesome, and I can't wait for next season with them. The best part of the past two months was getting to see their faces every day and laugh at all the little corny jokes that were being told.

The Friends I Made Because We Had The Same Class:

We bonded over the same struggle-- trying to pass the class and maybe hating the professor that was teaching it. Trying to study outside of class was the best part, because all we ended up really doing was talking about whatever was going in our life. And while we were in class, we sat in the back playing Pokémon Go.

The Friends I Made Because Of Playing Golf:

Between practicing with the same girls every day and then meeting new ones while playing a match, I made a lot of friends while playing golf this year. Walking to the next hole and talking about "Grey's Anatomy" was how most of us bonded, especially since we were playing around the time the new season was coming out. It was fun to be over playing a sport that we both understand and to talk about something we had in common.

The Friends I Made Because Of Volunteering:

I love to volunteer every chance I get, and I meet a lot of new people every time I do. Some I just talk to while I'm volunteering and the others I actually hang out with some time later. This is another time that you bond over doing something that you both like to do and talking about things that you guys have in common. You can also make the time that you're volunteering a little more fun; one time I ended up getting into a paint fight.

Unexpected friendships are the best ones; you never see the friendship coming but something made you guys come together. Whether you're attracted each other's weirdness or sass, you guys became friends for a reason.

25 Short Texts You Send Mid-Semester To Your Long Distance Best Friend

"I miss you."

A long distance friendship is just as hard, if not harder, to maintain than a long distance relationship.

You need your best friend, so what do you do when they're too far away? Text them, of course. Usually in an obsessive way.

1. "Only X more days until I see you!"

2. "Answer my FaceTime. It's important."

3. "Oh what's up? Just about to have a breakdown, what's up with you?"

4. "Did you see what he/she just posted?"

Bonus points if it's someone from high school that you both hate equally.

5. "What do I even say now?"

Because texting your S.O. isn't possible without a second opinion.

6. "Wait until you hear how I embarrassed myself this weekend."

7. "Does this look okay?"

8. "I have an exam. I need a pep talk."

9. "I know you're not busy! Pay attention to me!"

10. "Oh my god, remember when..."

11. "What's your address again?"

12. "Can you set me up with someone cute from your school? Everyone here is dumb."

13. "Stop sending me texts about how you're having fun while I'm trying to study."

14. "When can I come visit?"

15. "I wish you were here."

16. "I wish you were here so I could borrow that cute top you have."

17. "Check your Snapchat."

18. "I'm drowning in homework."

19. "Come visit me."

20. "Can you imagine if we were in the same area code? We'd destroy it."

21. "I'm glad you're making some new friends but they'll never be as cool as me so..."

22. "I just cried about how you don't live here."

23. "I love you."

24. "No one here gets me like you do."

25. "I miss you."

5 Friends Every Girl Needs To Survive College

Every girl needs a quality squad.

School is stressful as hell. Actually, life in general once you're in college is stressful as hell. No one can survive it alone. Every girl needs a quality squad of gal pals to get her through. These are the friends you'll need by your side if you want to survive college with your sanity still in check.

1.The Soulmate

This is that one person that you probably met pretty late in your lifetime, but you honestly don’t know how you ever survived without them. This is that friend who you go to for literally every decision you have to make from whether or not you should take a job to which insta filter you should use. They are the ultimate adventure companion, dinner/lunch/coffee date, movie buddy, and an impromptu photoshoot master, but she also loves to just sit down and chill, which really helps me relieve stress from school. Every girl needs that one friend who will comment fire emojis on your selfies to boost you up. A good friend is supportive 24/7, even if they don’t live close. You don’t necessarily need to share all of the same interests (or taste in food). If you were clones of each other, your friendship would be boring. And it certainly isn’t.

2. The One That Lives Close

Sometimes, you just need a quick escape from your house, and a friend that lives close is the perfect destination. Your ideal hangout is just sitting down and talking about life, which works out best if you both have the same values and interests. Your stories never seem to bore them, and the same goes for theirs. They’re super easy to make plans with. This is the perfect friend to sit down and have a drink with after a long day. And it’s always really hard to leave.

3. That One Girl Who Is Basically Like Your Girlfriend

She’s probably seen you at least mostly naked and borrowed your clothes (and owns them now because it’s been years since you’ve seen them). She’s the one you send weird pictures to (like your growing leg hair, your uneven boobs, and the weird thing happening to your foot). She’s there for all your major issues, but probably not for every single bitch session. You can go months without seeing her and pick up right from where you left off. Hanging out and doing basically nothing with them is some of the most fun you’ve ever had. This is the one who’s most likely to get matching tattoos with you. Also they know every single one of your deepest darkest secrets so if you stopped being friends you'd probably have to kill them.

4. The School Friend

You might not see this person much outside of class, but this friend will understand 100% every single complaint you have about school. From every annoying teacher’s pet, to the weird kid who breathes too loud, to the parking catastrophe you suffer every morning, to the teachers who still don’t provide any online access to the class. This person gets it. Handy to have around when you want to eat during school, but you don’t want to eat alone because then someone might come try to sit down at your table. You might have a lot of friends from school, but there will be one in particular who just makes the whole experience so much less miserable.

(You need a similar friend for work too, especially if your job sucks.)

5. Your Childhood Bestie

You’ve known this person for forever, so you’re like kind of sisters at this point. They’ve been your go-to friend for most of your life. At some point you kind of parted ways, but that doesn’t mean they don’t care. Catching up with this person is always the best and will make your whole week, especially since you get to reminisce about all those memories from before school was murdering you. (They’ve probably also seen you mostly naked.)
