Dear Best Friend...

Thank you for popping into my life so unexpectedly, you don't know how much I needed someone to talk to. Who knew that just by talking about work/our coffee orders we would become best friends. It was my first week at college and I didn't know a single person so I went to the library to put my headphones in and watch some Netflix.

I remember it was crowded so I had to share a table but that's okay because it was with you. You had your headphones in so I was nervous to ask to sit with you but it was like you already knew what I was going to say because you waved to the seat.

Honestly, we still do that to this day (say the same thing at the same time). It's honestly scary seeing how similar we are and how close we have become in such a short amount of time. You introduced me to your friends and we all became very close. We would sit with the group every day before classes and just laugh until we were basically crying.

You introduced me to Mishnock Barn and Line Dancing which even though I've been going for a while it all still feels brand new. Everyone there is amazing when it comes to dancing as well as so incredibly nice.

One amazing individual I have met through the barn was Becca, our very own Odyssey Editor. Thank you for accepting me and being there for me when I needed a shoulder to cry on or someone to laugh with.

Halie we have been through a lot together, fake friends, friends we thought would always be there leaving, and having our money stolen by someone close to us. Everything we have gone through has helped us grow stronger individually and together even if we couldn't see it at the moment. Thank you for putting up with me when I'm acting crazy and hate everyone.

You are always there for me when I need to vent about the drama going on or when I want to go out for a spontaneous photo shoot. Your an amazing person who will go so far in life and I will be right there with you all the way. No matter what life throws are way we will be there to face it together and for that, I would just like to say thank you for the many memories we have and the many more we will make moving forward.

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

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

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?


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.
