No, I do not like him like that.

An Open Letter To My Guy Best Friend

To the guy, I share sad playlists with, talk to about anything and everything, and the guy I will never see as anything more than a best friend,

Thank you for being in my life.

The definition of the term "close friend" can be defined as somebody who you can talk about everything with and it's someone who makes you feel comfortable without fear of judgment. You give me a different perspective on things. I can tell you anything and if there is judgment it's only because it is what I need to hear. You have always been the best at looking out for me, even though you are known to hurt my feelings with your harsh jokes that I know I should just take as jokes but don't.

The truth is we don't talk everyday because we have completely separate lives and that's okay. We still know almost every single detail about each other. We know our favorites and dislikes, but most importantly we know when we need each other. There are times we both like to be left alone and there are times when we just need a hug. Thank you for knowing me enough to notice when I need a hug even though no one else realizes.

I will always be the one to support you at all of your sporting events, and that's not just because I'm standing next to you on the sidelines. It's because I want you to succeed in everything you do. You have big things ahead of you. You're incredibly intelligent and have great determination. There is no doubt in my mind that you will grow to be successful and happy, and you deserve that.

Thank you for the memories, the support, and the shoulder to cry on. I love you best friend.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

13826

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
