7 Reasons I'm Glad My Car Can't Talk

7 Reasons I'm Glad My Car Can't Talk


Not many people, things, or creatures have been there for me like my car. Granted my car has little, well more like no, choice in this matter. Weather it’s a long road trip, quick drive to school or a coffee run here's 7 reasons I'm thankful my car can't talk.

1. Cleanliness

I’m constantly on the go. Between school, homework, a social life, and going to the gym life, just gets crazy sometimes. My car definitely takes the brunt of my crazy life and sometimes it looks like I live in my car (which sometimes I feel like I do). Regardless, on any given day you could see me trying to throw everything that’s in my backseat into my trunk hoping that there is enough space.

2. Tears

I've cried more tears in my car than it seems any other place. There's nothing like an open road to make all your emotions go into full swing. If I have a bad day often times i’ll crank up the music and just take a long ride to clear my head before I go home. Or once and awhile i’ll just be beep bopping along listening to my most new favorite song and BOOM next thing you know you're crying and don't know why but you can't stop. Yeah, you could probably fill my car with all the tears I've cried in it.


It's usually as loud as the stereo will allow it to be. And my song selection can going from Drake to Frozen without any warning. Either way I'm jamming out and when I am alone in my car there’s no need to hold back. My singing voice is full blown at its worst in the car.

4. Traffic

I don't think it's just me (or at least I hope it's not) but driving in my car brings out a different person in me. I curse more and say the worst things while I'm on the road. If you wanna leave your turn signal on for three exits and but never get off? Yeah, you can beat that I have a few choice words for you.

5. Information

When it comes to a gossip hub my friends and I can let loose in the car. Sometimes it’s the only time we’re all together and we know that there’s no one around who could eavesdrop which makes everyone want to spill the latest happenings and everything they know, about everyone.

6. Boys

I couldn’t count on both my hands the number of boys that have made a move on me in a car. I don’t know why but they think it’s okay. Like no one will see us kissing in the school parking lot because we’re in a car. I wish I could say it won’t happen again, but I know it will whether I want it to or not.

7. Changing

I’ll be the first person to admit that I've made multiple quick changes in my car. In an empty parking lot or a place where no one could see anything of course. Like I said, sometimes I live in my car so I keep extra clothes in my car in case of an emergency and change if necessary. It’s been necessary many times.

So whoever says that they wish their car could talk I most certainly am glad that mine cannot. There is way too much that I put my beloved vehicle through that I would most definitely not enjoy listening to complaints about.

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.
