A Thank You To My Best Friend

You are seriously the best.

A Thank You To My Best Friend

My best friend and I have been friends since kindergarten and ever since kindergarten she has been the most real person in my life. She has been there through everything in my life from family deaths to graduation she has been there every step. I think we should all appreciate our best friends a little more

Thank you for being there.

Thank you for being there for me through all of the boy problems and family drama. You have been there for me every time I've gone back to boys who aren't good for me and dealt with me ranting about them over and over. Having split up parents has never been easy for me either and you helped me through every fight I had with my mom or dad, and you've listened to my cry many times about family drama. Thank you for literally always letting me rant.

Thank you for all of the late-night Sonic trips.

Thank you for always being down to go on a midnight trip to Sonic for ice cream. These late nights sitting in my car eating ice cream or drinking slushies always made for the best times.

Thank you for making me more confident in myself.

You have never let a single person treat me badly. You have always been the first one to remind me of my worth when I am down on myself. Thanks for hyping up literally every single selfie I post. Also a thank you for not letting anyone be rude to me in high school, school was so much better knowing that I had someone who was always there for me.

Thank you for all of the inside jokes.

We literally almost wrote our own dictionary to remind of us of all of the funny words we made up. We have so many inside jokes that we typically can't hang out without seeing something that reminds us of one.

Thanks for staying my best friend through college.

We may not have ended up being roommates through college like we planned (at least yet), but you have always kept in touch with me. Most people grow apart after high school but I think being out of school has made us closer. We have learned that even if we don't see each other every day or talk every day we will always be best friends.

Thank you for always encouraging me.

Thank you for encouraging me through every single thing. You have encouraged me to finish my homework even when I don't want to. You have encouraged me to text that boy I like even when I'm scared. Without your encouragement, I wouldn't be half the person I am today.

These are just a few of the many reasons that I am thankful for you. I am so blessed that God chose to put you into my life and I literally have no idea what I would do without you. Thanks for being the best best friend ever.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.

I was so excited to vote in my local primary election in August. I eagerly researched my local candidates, combed the newspaper for profiles and policy positions, and shared infographics on Insta about voting deadlines. I considered myself a keen voter.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

As college students, sometimes life can be overwhelming. Four tests in a week and you only passed one of them? I feel that. Days like that, you just need time for yourself. A time where you're nice to yourself and put your own self-care before anything else.

The Smile Project Just Launched An Ambassador Program, And I Can't Wait To Get Started

Looking to shift your perspective, be happier, or just get involved in something truly amazing? Look no further.


The Smile Project is a nonprofit organization devoted to spreading happiness, founded by Elizabeth Buechele. It all started on a random day in the fall of her senior year. She was driving home from school when this thought crossed her mind: "Day 1: Happiness is…those perfect car rides where the radio just plays all the right songs."

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
