5 Questions You Can Really Only Ask Your Best Friend

5 Questions You Can Really Only Ask Your Best Friend

If you aren't comfortable with girl talk, you may want to stay far far away from the best friends who ask before they think

Best friends are ruthless. They have inside jokes that absolutely no one could comprehend, even if it was explained to them, they go everywhere together, and are not afraid to be open to one another. If you aren't comfortable with girl talk, you may want to stay far far away from the best friends who ask before they think.

1. "Can we just Netflix romance movies and eat an entire tub of ice cream?"

This questions seems to always come up when either me or my bestie are going through a heartache, menstruation, or if we just don't feel like going out. We don't judge each other for going down on some cookies n cream while we watch steamy Zac Efron on the flatscreen, because we are best friends, and any kind of time spent with the other is time well spent.

2. "Wanna grab Chick-fil-A?"

Okay, so we may have a slight obsession with salty waffle fries dipped in Chick-fil-A sauce, but who isn't? I don't think I could remember a single time where neither of us wanted to go to the drive thru (especially on Sundays...), because we are always down to go! There is nothing like belting out High School Musical while waiting in line, sitting right next to your bff.

3. "Do these pants make my butt look flat?"

Your best friend should not only hype you up when you look hot, but should also be brutally honest. If your bestie isn't telling you the truth, who will? Shopping is prime girl time, and you should never let her buy anything you don't think looks good on her! Praise her for all her glory, but also make sure she doesn't commit fashion mistakes.

4. "Does my first name sound weird with his last name?"

Boys, we talk about you. Oh, we talk about you everyday. Yep, we send each other screenshots of Instagram pictures, text messages, and even trace your family on Facebook. We have late night talks about potential marriage and babies, and make sure that, before things get too serious, all of the boxes are checked. So just know that her best friend knows everything about you before you even meet her.

5. "Why do I miss you so much?"

At the moment, my best friend and I are 140 miles away from each other. She attends a school near our hometown, and I moved two and a half hours away. FaceTime is something we can barely manage with our crazy schedules, but when we do, we cherish every moment of it. Not a day goes by without me texting, calling, or sending her a Snapchat. Going from spending everyday together, to only being able to communicate some of the time has been difficult, and making new friends and experiencing new things without her is even harder. This doesn't change us, though, because we will always be there for one another. Abbey, if you're reading this, I miss you. I can't wait to see you when both of us are able to go home and tell each other every little thing that college has brought us so far! Blaze on.

Dear Mom, From Your Daughter In College

Here are all the things our phone calls aren't long enough to say.

Dear Mom,

Do you remember when I was three and we would play together? It was the age of princesses and carpet that was actually lava, and you were the prettiest woman in the whole wide world. Do you remember when I was in high school and the world seemed too big and scary? You would know exactly when to take me on a mother-daughter date and have me laughing about anything and everything, and you were the smartest woman in the whole wide world. Now, I'm buried in homework and deadlines hours away from you and we don't get to talk as much you want, but you're still the prettiest, smartest woman in the whole wide world.

I'm sorry that I don't call you as much as I should, and you know a lot of what goes on in my world via posts and pictures. Our schedules just seem to never line up so we can have the three-hour conversations about everything like I want to. I know we don't agree on absolutely everything, but I cherish every piece of advice you give me, even though it probably seems like I'm hardly listening. I know that sometimes we get on each other's nerves, but thank you for putting up with me for all of these years. Thank you for listening to me cry, complain, question things and go on and on about how everything in college is. I know I don't come home as much as I used to, but I think about you all the time. After all, you're my first friend, and therefore, my best friend.

Thank you for celebrating my successes with me, and not downing me too hard for my failures. Thank you for knowing what mistakes I shouldn't make, but letting me make them anyway because you want me to live my life and be my own person. Thank you for knowing when to ask about the boy I've been talking about, and when to stop without any questions. Thank you for letting me be my crazy, weird, sometimes know-it-all self.

Thank you for sitting back and watching me spread my wings and fly. There is no way I could have known how to grow into the woman I am today if I hadn't watched you while I was growing up so I would know what kind of person I should aspire to be. Thank you for being the first (and the best) role model I ever had. You continue to inspire and amaze me every day with all that you do, and all that you are.

I don't know how I got so lucky to have a person in my life like you, but I thank the Lord every night for blessing me with the smartest, prettiest person to be my best friend, my role model, my confidant, my person and most importantly, my mother.


Your daughter

Thank You, Odyssey, For Giving Me A Place I Belong

You were the thing I never knew I needed.


When I was asked if I wanted to write on Odyssey, I was skeptical. I had no idea what it was. I maybe had read two or three articles that I saw on Facebook but besides that, I had no exposure to it.

I didn't understand what Odyssey was. I was told it was a place where people from all over could write about whatever they wanted.

To me, that sounded amazing. I could freely write about any and everything.

Since joining Odyssey I have found something within myself that I never knew I had.

I didn't ever think that I would enjoy writing as much as I do now.

Writing for Odyssey makes me happy because I know that no matter what someone will read what I write. You're guaranteed at least one reader, and sometimes that's all you need. One person, one view, one soul to care about something that you are passionate enough to write about.

It's more than just writing a weekly article, I am now in a family. My fellow Odyssey members and I support one another, offer help, and inspiration.

Thanks to Odyssey, I have felt more comfortable talking to people about some of the serious topics that I wouldn't prior to writing for them. For whatever the reason I psychically couldn't talk about how hard it was losing my uncle. But after I wrote my article on What I Would Say If I Could Call You, One Last Time, and it peaked at 2,600+ views, it gave me a sense that other people knew how I felt.

I had friends, family, and complete strangers reach out to me following the article. For the first time in my life, I could verbally communicate with them about such issues. It helped bring me out of my shell.

I was always so anxious about sharing my articles on my social media. Facebook? For me, that was strictly for family and close friends, and I was scared people were going to judge me. They were all going to see a side of me that I show very few people. Vulnerable.

But I did it. I shared my first article on Facebook and surprisingly got a lot of support.

To anyone in need of an escape or hobby, consider writing. You can find the Odyssey application by clicking here.

Joining Odyssey family will give you a sense of belonging, just like it did for me.
