9 Reasons You Can Always Count on Your Best Friend

Best friends are the family you get to choose.

9 Reasons You Can Always Count on Your Best Friend
Nicole Cantore

Who would have ever though that a few years ago we didn't know each other. Now we can't even go a day without talking to one another. Through the good times and bad, you're always by my side ... and for that I'm forever grateful. Here are some of the reasons I know I can always count on you.

1. They always make you laugh.

From the smallest things to the most outrageous, whenever we're together laughing is a given. Is a person really your best friend if you don't have inside jokes? The answer is no.

2. They help you pick out the best outfit.

Best friends and fashion shows go hand in hand. A true friend will tell you when you're looking fierce, and also when you're looking rough. But that's why you love them and their honesty.

3. They listen to you rant.

A best friend is there for you to go on and on about anything and everything. They offer their input and advice when needed, but always let you get your thoughts, both the rational and not so rational, off your chest, no questions asked.

4. They're always there to eat dinner with you.

There's nothing like bonding over food. The best part about having a best friend is that they are always down to grab some food or cook dinner with you. Nothing says true friendship like being domestic together.

5. They cheer you up when you're sad.

Whenever you just need a good cry, they're always the first one to give you a hug or grab a milkshake, because of course milkshakes make everything better. They're your ultimate shoulder to cry on.

6. You can be weird together.

There's something truly special about having someone you can be 100% yourself with. And that often entails you being a little weird sometimes. But it's ok because your best friend doesn't judge you for that. They embrace it!

7. You always have a binge watch partner.

The true sign of a good friendship is having at least one go-to show that you both watch together. Whether it's Riverdale, Grey's or American Horror Story, you know that when 9 o'clock comes around, she'll be there on the couch ready to go.

8. They are always honest with you.

With friendships, it's sometimes hard to be completely truthful with each other. As best friends, you have to be able to say the things that might not always be nice or what the other person wants to hear; but it's often what they have to hear. Not just saying something to please the other person is key, and that's what best friends are for.

9. You love each other unconditionally.

There is nothing like the love between best friends. You are always there for each other and will do anything for one another. They become your second half and make memories that will last you forever. You can always count on the other person to love you forever.

Best friends are the family you get to choose. They are there for you through thick and thin and always have your back. There's nothing like it. Thank you for being my best friend. I love you to the moon and back.

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
