5 Things I Want My Best Friend From Home To Know

Friends come and go, but you have shown me through distance and age you are here to stay.

To my dearest best friend,

It is an overwhelming feeling knowing that we are apart, yet have never been closer. With our big moves to college, it is easy to wonder what will happen to friendships.

Will we stay close, or drift due to distance and the changes we will make?

I am writing this as a thank-you to you.

Thank you for letting me become my own person, but also for frequently checking up on me when times get tough and for growing with me from afar.

You are constantly in my daily thoughts

I might not message you every day or call you every week, but daily you are in my thoughts. I am constantly thinking of you. Whether I am positively reminded of you or hope you are doing well, you have left such an impact in my life where my thoughts want to be with yours.

I support you

While we are continuing on this path of learning new routines and finding out the paths that are leading us to our future...I support you! I support your journey, good and bad. I am so proud of you for focusing your time and truly digging deep to learn more about your passions. I am so lucky to be best friends with someone who loves to learn and is so happy with where they are at. I support your trials and tribulations. Not everything is black and white, and not everything is easy. Greatness comes with time.

I miss you

I miss having you in reach every day. I miss knowing I could drive to your house in just short of a couple of minutes to tell you the new "biggest" news. I miss the comfort of our friendship. While I have amazing friends at school, you know me possibly better than myself. I miss the common friends and hanging out, having weekly slumber parties, and wine nights.

I think space has made us stronger

While I miss you like crazy, I think space has made us stronger. I have loved where college has taken me, and I know you feel the same. I love that we have built our own lives and know that at the end of the day or year, we will always be there. You are an incredible friend and I am so thankful that during this space and distance, you have stuck it out with me.

I cannot wait to see you

The greatest thing about being apart? It is so exciting figuring out when I can see you next.

Love you, best friend!

To The Grandmothers Who Made Us The Women We Are Today

Sincerely, the loving granddaughters.

The relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter is something so uniquely special and something to be treasured forever.

Your grandma loves you like you are her own daughter and adores you no matter what. She is the first person you run to when you have a problem with your parents and she never fails to grace you with the most comforting advice.

She may be guilty of spoiling you rotten but still makes sure to stress the importance of being thankful and kind.

Your grandma has most likely lived through every obstacle that you are experiencing now as a young adult and always knows just exactly what to say.

She grew up in another generation where things were probably much harder for young women than they are today.

She is a walking example of perseverance, strength, and grace who you aim to be like someday.

Your grandma teaches you the lessons she had to learn the hard way because she does not want you to make the same mistakes she did when she was growing up.

Her hugs never fail to warm your heart, her smile never fails to make you smile, and her laugh never fails to brighten your day.

She inspires you to be the best version of yourself that you can be.

You only hope that one day you can be the mother and grandmother she was to you.

A piece of girl’s heart will forever belong to her grandma that no one could ever replace.

She is the matriarch of your family and is the glue that holds you all together.

Grandmothers play such an important role in helping their granddaughters to grow into strong, intelligent, kind women.

She teaches you how to love and how to forgive.

Without the unconditional love of your grandma, you would not be the woman you are today.

To all of the grandmothers out there, thank you for being you.

Dear Fellas, Consistency & Communication Is All We Ask For

So, why aren't we getting the same?


Dear fellas (who fall under this category of course),

As you can tell from my title, it's time to talk about the problems with MOST guys in today's generation. This article isn't meant to bash all of you, but most of you need a reality check when it comes to. I'll start with this:

It's really annoying when most of you guys start a good conversation with us and then it eventually dies out because you lose interest in us. You even label things as "the talking stage," which to this day, I still don't understand the purpose of that. You come in our messages and go for long periods of time, only to message us weeks later like nothing happened. The excuses are tiring and pathetic, yet you claim that you care and you were just busy with work/school.

What I do know, is that if you actually cared about someone, you would be invested in that person and not disappear. We shouldn't always have to be the ones to triple text and make an effort. Once we find our self-worth, its hard to settle for less at this point. If you don't feel the same way, please communicate with us and let us know. There's one thing people hate and that's wasting precious time. If you do "like us," be consistent. We don't appreciate the half-of-everything type.

Life is short and it's time to grow up.

Also, notice how I keep saying "most" of you guys. However, if you feel offended by this article, it's probably you who needs to change.

Thank you for coming to my unofficial TED Talk!
