An Open Letter To The Best Friend Who Broke My Heart

You are no longer my best friend, but someone that I once knew.

An Open Letter To The Best Friend Who Broke My Heart

Dear Ex-Best Friend,

I thought we would be best friends forever, but apparently we were too different. Not everybody we meet is supposed to hold a role in our lives forever. I guess we were only meant for short term.

No one starts a friendship, knowing that it’ll end. When we met, I hoped that our friendship would be long term. I wanted you to be a bridesmaid in my wedding. I pictured us as adults with husbands that were friends. I imagined us having children at the same time and them being friends. But that is no longer an option.

Back in high school we were extremely close; close enough that no one thought that we would turn into strangers. But it happened. I no longer know what is going on in your life and you with mine. You are no longer my best friend, but someone that I once knew.

Although, I am sorry for everything that happened to us; but what I am not sorry for is that we went our separate ways. Personally, I believe that it is for the best… for both of us. We are no longer fighting over stupid things that have no reasons to fight.

Our friendship was toxic. You tried to hold me back from new friendships and new relationships. You weren’t there to support my plans. You tried to tell me that I made the wrong choices, but you had no right to do that. You had no role in those parts of my life. I got sick and tired of you telling me that what I was doing was wrong. I needed a best friend that would be there for me, no matter what my life choices were… and you didn’t do that for me.

This doesn’t mean that I don’t care about you or think about you. I just can’t have you in my life anymore. Just know that I am still there, silently cheering you on.


Your Ex-Best Friend

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
