5 Things That Happen When Your Best Friends Go To Different Colleges

New friends are wonderful, but the old ones will forever stay in your heart.

5 Things That Happen When Your Best Friends Go To Different Colleges

You know the drill. Go to college, meet new people, become super close and never want to leave again, right? Well, yes, but not entirely. There's not a problem with staying best friends with the girls you were inseparable with back home, but the hardest part is when they go to different schools, in separate directions, hours away.

1. You HARDLY get to see each other. Like ever.

You have different schedules. You go home on different weekends. It's next to impossible to meet up, unless it's the holidays and then you have to work around all your family time just to see them, but that's what social media, texting and FaceTime were invented for...amIright?

2. You get a tad jealous because they're making new friends...but so are you.

I mean really, you didn't expect them to not have any friends at all, right? They are around these people all the time. They can't be boring all the time. Plus, you have your new friends too. It will be okay. They won't forget about you!

3. You get to find who you are, without them.

This might be one of the harder things to take in. You think you know who you are, but let's face it, you base that off of who you are WITH them. Going to a different college, you get to explore yourself and find out who you are around other people, people who don't know you...yet!

4. You get to visit new places!

One of the best parts of being on your own and in college is getting to go places whenever you want! Going to visit your BFFS at their college and getting to see what their life is all about is fun and new adventures is what college is all about, right?

5. And finally, when you do finally get to see each other, it's a BLAST.

You never run out of things to talk about with all the new things going on in each of your lives. You learn something new about each other every time, even if you thought you knew everything about each other already, but you always pick up where you left off.

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
