Since graduation season is upon us here is a list of people you may meet at various graduation parties so you cannot say I did not warn you! This probably will not come close to all the possibilities of people you may meet, but at least you can be more prepared! None of these are quite that bad! But if you realize that you are one of these and find that it is not something you are proud of maybe try to change your ways the next party you are at. So as graduation party season begins, have a great time, hug your friends, and have an amazing future!

1. The Olympic Yard Game Athlete.

The person that is good at all of the yard games! They crush you at every single one! This includes, Kan Jam, Corn Hole, volleyball, horseshoes, ALL OF THE YARD GAMES! There may be more than one especially since most of these involve more than one person there is probably a team who are these olympians. If corn hole was an olympic sport you wouldn't be surprised if these were the people winning the gold!


2. The Force Feeder.

The person that makes sure your plate is never empty to make sure your stomach is about to pop! They probably made most of the food so they want you to enjoy it most but this comes to a point! Take the amount you know you can handle and if you are unsure about a food at least try it since they probably will be hurt.

3. The 'Party Hardy' type.

The person that probably did not need one more beer. They love a good time and are not going to miss the opportunity to turn up! If there is music you better believe they will try to get you out there dancing! If you come to my graduation party there will be many many of these people!

4. The Crazy Family Member.

Good chance they were invited with hopes they may not show up! But if they are there you may get trapped in a never ending conversation! Best thing to do it keep a positive mind about the conversation, try your best to keep a happy face and hopefully you can find an out. If they catch you at the food table go and eat your food as a way to get out of it or go and get food!

5. The DJ.

Not the actual DJ this is a friend or family member that was not hired they just think their music is the best! If there is a hired DJ they will continue to request songs they think are a good time, if there is not a hired DJ you will now have your aux cord stolen. I pray their music is actually good for your sake but if not maybe you take a turn DJ-ing.

6. The Storyteller.

The one with all the stories. It is rather impressive that one person can know and experience so many exciting things. Usually can be a good thing or a bad thing. May allow for some good entertainment but if their stories are to make sure the attention remains on them there is a good chance that these stories will no longer be fun to listen to.

7. The Puppy Guarder.

I do play this role often. The person that does not know anyone else at the party so the person they know is the person they stick to. Sadly this is often the person the party is for and usually they know everyone at the party! So it is hard to stick to them. One if you are the puppy guarder try to spread your wings and start a conversation with someone, and if you notice a puppy guarder try to reach out to them and start a conversation!

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

Shockingly, There Is Strength In Being Weak

Abandon the idea that you do not deserve to be taken care of. You do!

The one challenge in having a brave face, is others never considering there are moments you may not be. It is a beautiful yet complicated gift to be able to provide comfort to others. To be the person your friends and family turns to in times of crisis. Just remember that those who offer help, may need help sometimes too.

Lately, I have been struggling. Having flares of anxiety and repetition of old behaviors, that I am not so proud of. I am so kind to others facing struggle, but I have yet to understand the importance of offering myself the same respect.

Some may suggest therapy, seeking out health professionals. For many that may work. And if that is a tool that works for you, power to you! If you feel comfortable with the process pursue it! For myself, I am not. And I will tell you why.

I have yet to swallow my pride. To understand that the strong fail too. Oh how I despise failing. And I think fear of failure comes from my own personal expectations, to hold it "together". Because if I fall, who will those closest to me lean on? I have strength, therefore if I fall, we all do.

That may sound like an idiotic sentence, and while forming the words I recognize how false a statement it is. However, this is a deep rooted issue for many individuals. And for me this is something I struggle with. Allowing for the world to see my weakness.

One of my best friends, who has recently opened my eyes said to me, " To have the courage to ask for help is not you showing weakness, but strength." It takes a great deal of strength to open up. I find myself suppressing my emotions. Meanwhile, I write weekly about confronting your past. Yet I struggle in the practice I preach.

That is not weakness, yet it is a glimpse of reality. I am thankful for my friend, who noticed a shift within me, to speak up and make sure that I recognize that I am falling. Sometimes you cannot only rely on yourself, and you need to admit that you need help.

My greatest joy is helping others but again I cannot find the generosity in my heart to offer it to myself. I was wrestling with the "why". Why I cannot allow for others to worry about me, why I simply do not want other people to worry about me. It is because that is my job. Then I realized, being a brave individual goes hand in hand with wanting control.

I struggle with allowing for myself to be a mess. To admit when I have lost control of who I am. The issue with a brave face? You rarely let others see you cave. So those around you assume you are stedfast, strong, in control, without a shadow of a doubt ; okay.

I understand not each individual is intuitive. That people miss the signs of when others emotional well beings are compromised. I am grateful for my best friend and her intuitive mind and heart. Recognizing that I have not been completely myself as of late, just an extension.

For those of you , who feel you lack the skill. Those who are not capable of reading between the lines, noticing lack of bravery, please I advise you to check up on the ones who you are usually so sure that are "okay". A simple, "how are you", goes a very long way.

I know I was hoping all day that someone would recognize I was not so myself and ask the question. Thankfully, my best friend did. It is nice to know someone sees you. To understand that you're human, and to remind you that you're human. The brave are allowed to fall.

I note that this also means, the brave need to allow for transparency. Because when you allow for others to see your struggle, it is easier for them to then offer a helping hand. Break your silence, even if it proves that you are not always brave.

Each individual has strengths and weaknesses. My weakness? Being weak. Allowing for myself to strip off the mask of " I am okay", and revealing the " I am not okay".

Again, to be brave is in fact a complicated gift. Being emotionally strong for others, does not mean you do not deserve to also be taken care of. To be offered the same respect of healing and love. Leave behind the idea that those managing others issues, means they can manage their own. Even the bravest of walls can come falling down.

It does not take long to ask a three worded question; " How are you?" I hope those are brave enough to answer honestly.
