Your Thanksgiving Break, Told Through Your Group Snapchat

Your Thanksgiving Break, Told Through Your Group Snapchat

Dogs, dads and decorations.

Everyone loves a good Snapchat, whether it's to just one person or everyone on your friends list. There are the classics; the just eyebrows and forehead, the blurry shot of a friend walking, the video of someone yelling something that can't quite be understood, and so many more.

Here are 9 Snapchats you should expect over Thanksgiving break.

1. The Leaving One

Your first friend has departed from campus and they're sure to let you know that they're now free of responsibilities for a whole six days.

2. The Stuck One

The friend who isn't going home for break and suddenly realized that everyone else is.

3. The One With The Dog Reunion

It's a blurry video of a dog running around your friends' ankles and you replay it three times because they're right, that dog is cute.

4. The Sibling Reunion One

Either a selfie with the sibling or a shot of them sitting on the couch feet away, probably flipping off the camera. Ah, siblings.

5. The One with the Parents

Yep, there they are good old Mom and Pops. Make sure you Snapchat back to tell them hello and thank you for the wonderful human being they made.

6. The One of the Home Bedroom

You've heard all about the big Hannah Montana poster and the One Direction cardboard cutouts but you still need photographic evidence and maybe a screenshot to savor.

7. The One with the Extended Family

Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins. Everyone is turning out and everyone is getting caught on film.

8. The One with the Food

A wonderful, real meal for the first time in ages.

9. The Coming Home One

The car is packed back up and the squad is heading back!

An Open Letter to the Best Friend I Didn't See Coming

Some people come into your life and change you forever—thanks, bestie.

Dear best friend,

I wasn't expecting you when God placed you in my life. I had my friends. I had my people. I wasn't exactly open to the idea of new meaningful friendships because I had the ones I needed, and it didn't seem like I really needed anybody new.

Thank God that was false. Sometimes you meet people and you just know that you're going to be good friends with. Sometimes you meet people and you realize that there is no such thing as chance. I think God has a funny way of making it seem as if the things that happen to us are by chance, but honestly, that’s a load of crap. If the biggest moments of our lives were left up to chance, then I believe that would make God out to seem as if he didn’t care. It would make it seem as if He was truly abandoning me and making me face some of my most important seasons fully isolated. But you, best friend, are a true testament to the fact that God doesn’t just leave such important aspects up to chance. Thank you for taking a chance on our friendship, and thank you for allowing me to take a chance on what I didn’t realize would be the most impactful friendship in my entire life.

Thank you for being real with me. Thank you for not sugar coating things. Thank you for telling me when I have a bad attitude. Thank you for loving me through my mistakes. Thank you for supporting me in my decisions, even if it isn’t always the decision you would make. Thank you for wanting the best for me, and for making that your true intent behind the words that you say to me, whether they be constructive criticism or encouragement.

Thank you for being a goof with me. Thank you for putting me first. Thank you for seeing the importance of our friendship. Thank you for making time in your schedule for us to just sit and do homework, eat Mexican food, or sit on the porch and listen to music that emotionally wrecks you.

You’re one of a kind. You’re a shoulder to lean on. You’re a safe place. You’re a free spirit. You’re rough and tough, but your heart melts for the people you love and it’s obvious. You’re more than meets the eye. You are worth getting to know. You are worth loving. You pursue people. You are passionate about your future. You are everything that a person needs, and I really thank God that for some reason you continue to choose to be in my life. Thank you for literally dragging me up my mountains of fear when I want to stay exactly where I am at and wallow in the sadness. You bring joy—true joy—wherever you go. You are my best friend, confidant, and biggest fan. You will be the Maid of Honor, Godmother, and fun Aunt.

I used to think lifelong friendships weren’t really a thing. It just seemed like people always grew apart and forever was never a point that was attainable. Best friends forever is a cliché phrase that is continuously overused nowadays (sometimes, I even used to make light of it), but thanks for making that a reality. You are truly the best friend I could have asked for. So thank you for it all. You make life more fun, and I couldn’t thank God more for making an incredible human, friends with me.

I love you, pal!

10 Things Coworkers are good for

In and out of the workplace


If you're like me, you've had your fair share of jobs, both the good and the bad. With each job comes a lot of ups and downs, an up being your coworkers who come with a lot of good qualities.

1. They're always there to take your shift because they are just as broke as you are.

2. They never have a problem with wanting to get out and close up as early as possible.

3. They have no idea what your life is like outside of work.. unless you want them to.

4. And if you want them to, they're always there to listen to your personal problems.

5. They probably have all the same thoughts as you every time the schedule comes out.

6. They're always down to get food after work.

7. They laugh with you about the dumb things that happen at work.

8. They encourage you to quit and find another job that might be slightly more enjoyable.

9. They even put their two weeks notice in with you to push you further.

10. And if you're really lucky, you stay close friends after the job is done.
