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, I Hope You Know

I hope you know that I am here for you--until the very end.

Dear Mom,

I hope you know that I appreciate you.

You are the hardest working woman I know, continuously putting your family before yourself. Thank you for doing all of the tedious jobs that no one wants to do like keeping the house in order, cooking the food, and doing the laundry. Thank you for constantly putting up with my siblings and I. Thank you for always supporting us in our interests and hobbies. Thank you for investing in our daily lives and listening to our minor problems. Thank you for always loving us unconditionally.

I hope you know I'm sorry.

I know I can be a big pain in the butt sometimes, and for that I'm sorry. I'm sorry for yelling at you, arguing with you, not listening to you, and making dumb decisions at times, but thank you for loving me anyways. Thank you for helping me stand back up, teaching me right from wrong, and pushing me to be the very best version of me.

I hope you know your love inspires me.

You live your life with a love that is contagious. Whether its nurturing love, tough love, friendly love, or romantic love, you have it all and you show it daily. The love you and Dad share is something I hope to find one day and the love you have for your family is evident in the way you constantly put us first.

I hope you know that you are my biggest role model and hero.

Ever since I was a little girl, you have been the person I have looked to in my life. You are strong, independent, confident, loving, supportive, and nurturing-- everything I strive to be as a woman and as a future mother. You give the best advice, even when I don't always take it. Though, I should know better by now because mothers always know best. Without you in my life, I honestly don't know where I'd be.

I hope you know that you are my best friend.

Not only are you my biggest cheerleader supporting me in everything I do, you are the person I talk to about everything, whether it's good or bad. I'm honestly so thankful for the relationship we share because I've had countless screwups and you literally give the best advice. Seriously, thank you for being the person I can count on at all times, at any time of the day or even night to just talk with. I mean we really do have some of the best conversations, best laughs, best cries (when needed), and the most fun watching cheesy chick flicks together or going on crazy shopping adventures.

I hope you know that I am here for you--until the very end.

I don't mean to make you cry or anything -- even though you probably already are, but I want you to know that when the time comes, I'm going to be there for you just like all of these years you've been here for me. I will be there to support you, talk with you, laugh with you, cry with you, and love you for all of my life.

Honestly, I can't really imagine my life without you -- but it doesn't matter because I wouldn't be here without you, so here's to you.

Thank you for being you.

Love you lots!

Your daughter.

Poetry On Odyssey: Poems On Friendship

It can kill you or revive you, but whatever the case, it will change your life.


A Poem Beginning with the Death of Caesar

Et tu, Brute?—Then fall Caesar.

[He dies.]

The stab wasn't what killed him,


Caesar truly died of a broken heart.


upon seeing his best friend involved in the conspiracy,

Caesar could no longer find the strength to live in this world.

I can't say I blame him.

A bond with a best friend,

a true best friend,

is deeper than family,

deeper than marriage.

They are your soulmate.

But that kind of relationship is a mutual thing.

It may be unspoken,


but it is mutual.

The pain of finding out a best friendship isn't mutual is unbearable.

The rejection is one thing,

but there's almost always an accompanying betrayal.

That's the real knife,

the real stab.

It twists in your heart and,

instead of blood,

makes tears flow.

And you stare at the one you loved so much,

wishing you could just disappear or die.

But you aren't Caesar,

they aren't Brutus,


though the pain is there,

the knife isn't.

So you live,

wondering when the pain will end.

Still Fourteen - Beginning with a Line by Shakespeare

To me fair friend you never can be old

because you will always be fourteen,

awkward but happy-go-lucky,

with jacked-up teeth and mousy brown hair.

You knew no pain then,

not really,

and you were refreshing to my already tortured mind.

You made my dark times easier,

holding a flashlight out for me to find you,

even though you never knew what you were really doing.

Things are a little different now.

You have experienced pain and heartbreak,

despite my very best efforts to help you otherwise,

but I was there with a flashlight for you,

returning the favor.

You now know the full extent of all you did for me,

which makes it harder for me to hide my pain from you,

but I know that's for the best.


time has flown by the last eight years,

and every time I see you,

I still see the awkward fourteen-year-old in my algebra class,

asking if I want to work with her.
