Four girls = a whole lot of mischief

This past week I've been lucky enough to vacation with my four best friends from high school. They're the most supportive, inspirational, and patient people I've ever met, yet also the most difficult (which is equally a wonderful thing).

Four girls equals four very different upbringings, and very different perspectives on life. Four girls equals a lot of stubborn behavior. Four girls also equals a lot of trouble. Something four girls definitely create though, is a ton of fun.

Here are five things I've learned while vacationing with my friends this past week in Destin Florida

1. People are messy.

They're even messier when together. You might think you're neat and terribly OCD about messes, but once you've met my friend Sasha, you really can't call yourself a clean freak.

2. People vacation very differently.

You might want to go explore the bars and the night life of a specific location, but one of your friends is going to want to go to the movies and hang out on the beach until dawn. Compromise is key.

3. Four people aren't necessarily going to be on top of their game always.

Things will be forgotten at home. Chargers, laptops, sunscreen, etc. You've always got to keep in mind that things happen. Better to help a friend out than get frustrated at their forgetfulness.

4. Bathrooms, even though already gross, will become the grossest place in your hotel, house,or condo.

Beware. Enter with caution. You'll see mascara everywhere but on lashes, towels everywhere but on racks, and water in places fairly far from the shower.

5. There is nothing more rewarding, exhilarating, and exciting than vacationing when your closest friends.

They're there for you in the bad and they're there for you in the fun.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
