Knowing they will be there for you even though they are hundreds of miles away, is the best feeling ever.

2. You always get a great opinion from them.

You already know they will have a better opinion than anyone else on things important to you, especially if they have been through the same situation.

3. Planning trips to see each other.

Although there is so many hours that go into the planning, and let alone the trip, it's worth it all. Just to see the person you call your true best friend.

4. You both can each other packages for Birthdays and Holidays.

You know in the package you have sent them multiple things they will absolutely love but still there is stress for some reason you think they may not like what is in the box.

5. You know they will always have your back and love you no matter what.

(You should've known I had to add a Supernatural gif lol.) No matter if you two fight over thinking one of you are right and the other is wrong, if someone hurts your best friend you do your best to protect them no matter the situation.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
