The 7 Friends Every College Girl Needs In Her Life

The 7 Friends Every College Girl Needs In Her Life

Because everyone needs someone to go out with, but also someone to stay in with.

Almost every girl has their core group of friends and each of them is a little different. Girls need a little variety in their life because everyone needs someone to go out with, but also someone to stay in with. No one wants only friends who are super lazy or super smart or super crazy. There are seven people every girl needs to complete her friend group.

1. The Role Model Friend

This friend has their sh*t together. They know they are going places and won’t let anyone stop them. They push you to be the best you can be.

2. The Crazy Friend

This is the friend that religiously partakes in Margarita Monday, Tequila Tuesday, and Wine Wednesday. Then they still go out Thursday, Friday, and Saturday no questions asked. They are always dragging you with them and showing you the best time.

3. The Confident Friend

They radiate confidence so much that when you’re near them, you feel confident too.

4. The Lazy Friend

They are always down to stay in for a movie night, eat pints of Ben & Jerry’s, and gossip till 2 a.m.

5. The Boy Friend That You Friend-Zoned

This is the person you go to when you’re just sick of girls. You go to them when you need boy advice and they are always right. Well, almost always.

6. The Emotional Friend

They’ll know what it's like to overreact, so when you’re upset they will be there for you.

7. The Best Friend

This is the girl you can’t imagine your life without. Not the one you say “Omg, can’t live without you” when you’re writing a birthday message. This is the girl you physically can’t live without and not talking to them for a week makes you go crazy. You turn to them for anything and they will always give you the best advice. They're your person.

The Thank You My Dad Deserves

While our moms are always the heroes, our dads deserve some credit, too.

Dear Dad,

You’ve gone a really long time without being thanked. I'm not talking about thanks for things like opening the Gatorade bottle I couldn't or checking my tires when my car’s maintenance light is flashing, but rather the thanks I owe you for shaping me into the person I am today.

Thank you for teaching me what I deserve and for not letting me settle for anything less.

While the whole world was telling me I wasn’t good enough, you were there to tell me I was. Whether this was with boys, a friend, or anything else, you always built my confidence to a place I couldn’t build it to on my own. You showed me what my great qualities were and helped me feel unique. But most of all, you never let me settle for anything less than what I deserved, even when I wanted to. Without you, I wouldn’t be nearly as ambitious, outgoing or strong.

Thank you for giving me someone to make proud.

It’s hard to work hard when it’s just for myself, but so easy when it’s for you. All through school, nothing made me happier than getting a good grade back because I knew I got to come home and tell you. With everything I do, you give me a purpose.

Thank you for showing me what selflessness looks like.

You are the prime example of what putting your family first looks like. If me wanting something means that you can’t get what you want, you’ll always sacrifice. From wearing the same t-shirts you’ve had since I was in elementary school so I could buy the new clothes I wanted, to not going out with your friends so you could come to my shows, you never made a decision without your family at the forefront of your mind. If there is one quality you have that I look up to you for the most, it’s your ability to completely put your needs aside and focus entirely on the wants of others.

Thank you for being the voice in the back of my head that shows me wrong from right.

Even though many of your dad-isms like “always wear a seatbelt” easily get old, whenever I’m in a situation and can’t decide if what I’m doing is right or wrong, I always can hear you in the back of my head pointing me in the right direction. While I may not boost your ego often enough by telling you you’re always right, you are.

Thank you for being real with me when nobody else will.

Being your child hasn’t always been full of happiness and encouragement, but that’s what makes you such an integral part of my life. Rather than sugarcoating things and always telling me I was the perfect child, you called me out when I was wrong. But what separates you from other dads is that instead of just knocking me down, you helped me improve. You helped me figure out my faults and stood by me every step of the way as I worked to fix them.

Most of all, thank you for showing me what a great man looks like.

I know that marriage may seem very far down the road, but I just want you to know that whoever the guy I marry is, I know he’ll be right because I have an amazing guy to compare him to. I know you’re not perfect (nobody is), but you’ve raised me in a such a way that I couldn’t imagine my kids being raised any differently. Finding a guy with your heart, drive, and generosity will be tough, but I know it will be worth it.

Dad, you’re more than just my parent, but my best friend. You’re there for me like nobody else is and I couldn’t imagine being where I am now without you.

Love you forever,

Your little girl

Losing Your Best Friend Is The Worst Kind Of Breakup There Is

Nothing is worse than losing the person you never thought you'd lose.


Going into college, I had hopes of meeting people I would have in my life, for the rest of my life. I hoped to meet that "friend" that would be there until the end, perhaps even my maid of honor since I didn't conveniently have a sister to give that position to.

In high school, all the "best friendships" I had were seemingly real. I won't lie, there were definitely good times that occurred, but unfortunately, the people that were apart of them were not genuine. This is too common in high school friendships - they seem real at the moment, but eventually, the true colors of the relationships are shown.

Moving to a new city for college, remotely without anyone I knew, was not scary or intimidating to me at all. In fact, it was quite the opposite. I couldn't wait to meet so many new faces and create so many new memories. I couldn't wait to find "my people."

I have said, and I always will stand by this, that my freshman year of college was overall phenomenal. Sure there were ups and downs, but these minor things didn't compare to the abundance of problems I faced my sophomore year and continue to face my junior year.

During my freshman year of college, I met people that I wanted to spend the rest of my years with. They were amazing people and I hadn't encountered people like them before. They made up a unique group that seemed to complement my personality perfectly.

I was so content because I had met my best friends, and one, in particular, became my best friend and continued to be until about a week ago.

We argued over a miscommunication issue, something I thought could be easily resolved, but I wasn't really seeing things from her point of view. Truly, I had deeply hurt her without even realizing it. This situation made me realize that losing a best friend is the worst kind of breakup there is.

And I hope I never have to go through it again.
