An Open Letter To My Best Friend For 18 Years

Dear best friend,

First off, I wanna say thank you! Thank you for being your crazy, outgoing, fun self that I love so much. Thank you for making me laugh when I'm upset. Thank you for reminding me I'm better and deserve more than the boys who made me feel awful. Thank you for keeping me entertained and laughing for 18 years. It's crazy how it's been so long. You know how people sometimes say that a person has the fewest pictures with the people they like the most? That is 100% true for us. We have known each other for 18 years and only have a handful of photos. These photos capture great times that we have had, but there is also another saying that we should live in the present and not worry about trying to capture photos. And this is why we don't have many photos- whenever we are hanging out, it's always a good time and we don't feel the need to be distracted by our phones. This is truly one of the best feelings in the world and I would not take back any of the times we've seen each other, which is not often since we live far away from each other.

When my parents decided to move away from our neighborhood, I remember being devastated that we wouldn't be around the corner from each other anymore. But it all worked out, because eight years later, we're still best friends and I would not want it any other way. I think the reason why we get along so well is because our personalities fit so well together. You know I say this in a loving way but, you truly are the crazy friend. It's always been like a yin and yang thing between us where I'm the calm and timid one while you're off doing something crazy, but would make me laugh until my stomach hurts. I'm glad you're like this because if you weren't, I think we would get bored of each other. Even though we live far away from each other and go to schools in different states, I am grateful that we talk everyday and I at least get one crazy Snapchat from you that makes my day a whole lot better.

One thing that I love about our friendship is that even though we aren't as involved in each other's lives because we live far away and have different friend groups, this doesn't phase us. We do talk everyday, but it's not in depth because we save those conversations for when we're in person. Our friendship never falters because whenever we finally both have time to hang out, it seems like these has been no time lost, but at the same time, through all of this time lost, we tell each other everything that has happened. Our conversations are almost like therapy sessions and we both just vent and say whatever we feel, and for that, I am thankful for. I am also grateful for you because you let me be myself, you don't judge. I know that we will be friends for a long time since we've been able to stand each other for 18 years. I could not have asked for a more caring, funny, crazy, beautiful best friend!

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

-Having struggled with acne prone skin for years, I was cautious to try a new serum on top of the other products I've come to trust.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

I am not in any way any sort of medical expert. These are just some tricks that work for me and have worked for others who also suffer from anxiety. These may not work for everyone, but I do hope these help some people in their fight against anxiety.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
