No one can ever, ever come close.

8 Reasons Why Your Best Friend Is YOUR Best Friend
Victoria Renfroe

Whether you met your best friend the day you were born or last month, they mean the absolute world to you. No one can replace. No one can compare. No one can ever, ever come close.

1. They will always listen to you whine and complain over that one thing that never goes right.

We've all been here. It's the —

"But I miss him!"

"Why? I hate him!"

— conversation. They only hate them because they hurt you. Regardless of their own opinion, they will always be the one to listen to your problems every single time. They care more than they can show you.

2. They tell it like it is.

I know I've had countless conversations with my best friend that ended up in some serious tough love. Your best friend isn't worried so much about how they say it, but what they say. If you need to hear the truth, they will tell you. They won't hide anything from you. There is absolutely nothing that goes unsaid.

3. They fit into your family like family.

They show up at your house when you aren't even there. They sit and talk to your mom for hours after you've gone to work. You start to think if your family likes them better than they like you. Let's be honest, they do sometimes. Who couldn't adore that one person who's always there for you?

4. They would do absolutely anything for you. Anything.

They will punch that ex in the face and bring you ice cream afterward. They'll drive you around for a week when your car messes up. They'll buy you dinner when you leave your wallet at home and not make you pay them back.

5. Your favorite memories always include them.

You're always laughing. You're constantly being spontaneous. You just can not help but make some insane memories when you're with each other. From road trips to late-night adventures, they are always your partner-in-crime.

6. They always want what's best for you.

This one ties into the tough love topic. They are your outside eyes of every situation and will never let you make that wrong decision — if they can help it. When they can't help it, because you are just way too stubborn...

7. ...they will always be there to pick up the pieces.

They can not control you no matter how hard they try, and they know that. When you do end up hurt, sad, disappointing, they will always be there for you. They are your shoulder to cry on and source of happiness.

8. They love you unconditionally.

... And they'll never let you doubt it.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
