7 Things I Forget to Thank My Best Friends For

Thank you for being just as weird as me.

7 Things I Forget to Thank My Best Friends For
Madeline Smith

Amber, Whitney, this one's for you.

1. Thank you for keeping me levelheaded.

It’s no secret that I can be blunt and a little too honest. Thank you for all the times you’ve let me know I probably shouldn’t say what I’m thinking and that saying nothing is sometimes the best choice.

2. Thank you for laughing at all of my dumb jokes.

I’m a corny joke aficionado and that’s a well-known fact. I will laugh at anything (except Parks and Rec, @Amber). I need someone to share my stupid jokes with and more importantly, I need someone who finds them just as funny as I do and laugh along with me – or at least fake it and pretend like you enjoy them for my sake.

3. Thank you for being down to always do something.

Pizza Inn. The Escape Room. The park before A.P. exams. The Mexican restaurant beside the mall that no one knows the name of. Football games. Glendale. Krispy Kream. Gatlinburg. The list goes on. Even if it’s just staying at home and watching dumb scary movies on Netflix, thank you for always wanting to spend time together.

4. Thank you for listening to me complain.

Sometimes I just need to whine and complain. Thank you for listening. Sometimes I’m overreacting, sometimes I’m being dramatic, but no matter what you still listen and always take my side.

5. Thank you for the little texts and Snapchats that mean the world to me.

Snapchat is the most important form of communication in our friendship. Sometimes it’s ugly selfies, ratchet ootd’s going to class, videos of my cats, or black pictures that just say “streak” in order to keep our Snapchat streak going, or the infamous “I love you” Snaps with the hearts made of random objects. They keep me going throughout the day.

6. Thank you for going on late night junk food runs.

Cookout milkshakes, Ingles birthday cakes, or even baking cookies at home occur very often when we’re all together. Thanks for indulging in my unhealthy lifestyle with me and supporting it, and sometimes even being the ringleader and dragging us out at ten at night to get food we know will never be good for us.

7. Thank you for being my fill-in boyfriend.

The little motivational texts you send, your constant support, and the dumb Snapchats we’ve already discussed keep my life so fulfilled I don’t even have time for a boyfriend. And why would I want one when I have y’all?

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
