Best friends are great for everything. They will love you no matter what, even when you lie to them. At least you're both usually lying to yourself and each other though.

1. "We're going to the gym every day."


Which really means you will both go to the gym once and decide that's enough for the week. Did any working out actually even happen that one time? Probably not.

2. "Let's go out and do something fun tonight."


Neither of you actually make it off the couch, but two whole pizzas got eaten, and you entertained each other for hours with bad jokes!

3. "Can I borrow this? I'll give it back right away."

Whatever was borrowed disappears into the black hole called your room and isn't seen for months. Oops! It will turn up eventually.

4."I'll pay you back."

Pretty likely the lender never gets that money back. Unless maybe the lender accepts payments in food. Maybe if you're lucky you get that money back months later, but probably not since the borrow probably asked for money since they are broke.

5. "I'm eating healthy."


So salad gets made for dinner. Does salad get eaten? Maybe a few bites. Did the pizza rolls, chicken nuggets, left over Chinese and ice cream all get eaten? Every last morsel is gone.

6. "I swear he's cuter in person."


He's probably not cuter in person let's be real. We can pretend though.

7. "Give me the aux cord, I have a great song."


There is a 50/50 chance that the song about to come on is your least favorite song and their favorite song.

8. "I hate you."

Honestly you're only saying this because they did something totally worthy of an eye roll, and it probably embarrassed you. You both know you will never hate each other no matter what.



No matter what tiny lies you tell each other and yourself, you both will always be best friends. When the day ends you both know you were lying from the start anyways.

I Blame My Dad For My High Expectations

Dad, it's all your fault.

I always tell my dad that no matter who I date, he's always my number one guy. Sometimes I say it as more of a routine thing. However, the meaning behind it is all too real. For as long as I can remember my dad has been my one true love, and it's going to be hard to find someone who can top him.

My dad loves me when I am difficult. He knows how to keep the perfect distance on the days when I'm in a mood, how to hold me on the days that are tough, and how to stand by me on the days that are good.

He listens to me rant for hours over people, my days at school, or the episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' I watched that night and never once loses interest.

He picks on me about my hair, outfit, shoes, and everything else after spending hours to get ready only to end by telling me, “You look good." And I know he means it.

He holds the door for me, carries my bags for me, and always buys my food. He goes out of his way to make me smile when he sees that I'm upset. He calls me randomly during the day to see how I'm doing and how my day is going and drops everything to answer the phone when I call.

When it comes to other people, my dad has a heart of gold. He will do anything for anyone, even his worst enemy. He will smile at strangers and compliment people he barely knows. He will strike up a conversation with anyone, even if it means going way out of his way, and he will always put himself last.

My dad also knows when to give tough love. He knows how to make me respect him without having to ask for it or enforce it. He knows how to make me want to be a better person just to make him proud. He has molded me into who I am today without ever pushing me too hard. He knew the exact times I needed to be reminded who I was.

Dad, you have my respect, trust, but most of all my heart. You have impacted my life most of all, and for that, I can never repay you. Without you, I wouldn't know what I to look for when I finally begin to search for who I want to spend the rest of my life with, but it might take some time to find someone who measures up to you.

To my future husband, I'm sorry. You have some huge shoes to fill, and most of all, I hope you can cook.

Stop Assuming Your Queer Friends Are Going To End Up Falling For You

News flash: if you're my friend, the chances of me falling for you are slim to none.

Ever since I came out my senior year, I've encountered bumps of my friendships due to my sexuality. I think people understand gay, lesbian, and bisexual identities rather well. However, there are other members of the LGBTQ+ community that isn't as understood as well.

I identify as pansexual but start using the term queer. Essentially, I don't have a preference if someone identifies as female or male. When it comes to love and relationships, I care about the quality of the person and if I'm getting the love and respect I deserve.

However, to some of my friends, they seemed to become afraid. They distanced themselves in our friendships in fear I would end up falling for them.

News flash: if you're my friend, the chances of me falling for you are slim to none. You are my friend for a reason. If I liked you, I would honestly be too nervous to talk to you.

It's nice to know to have that kind of self-confidence where you think everyone has a crush on you. That's the attitude to have because you are a pretty great person. However, sorry to break it to you, but you just are not my type.

There is absolutely no reason to cut off a friendship just because you don't understand. Your queer friends would probably like you to ask questions. It can be a sign you care about them and showing support. There is nothing wrong with asking questions either. When you're in class and you don't know anything, then you ask a question. When you are getting to know someone, you ask questions. Even if you knew this person for a while, ask away!

I think there is a stigma of not knowing something and feeling embarrassed. However, it shouldn't be this way. We should embrace the unknown, learn, and grow from it. It's 2019. It's all about being open-minded to differences. We have to do better for the next generation.
