An Open Letter To My Guy Best Friend

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.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Launched by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad in 2014, My Stealthy Freedom is a commendable campaign that shows women going against the strict hijab restrictions in Iran. This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

Be careful what you do and post

Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.
