An Open Letter To My Best Friend Who Became My Boyfriend

To this day, I have never been more grateful that every day I get to spend with you. Every day is an adventure and for that, I can never replace. When we first met, I was completely shy. I was in a new place and you made me laugh and smile. That day when we first talked, I saw you look right through me. I never knew that we would be where we are today. We are so far and we have much farther to go.

Without you, I would not have discovered who I have been this whole time. You have helped me become a better version of myself. While we have been together, you have seen me through my highest highs and lowest lows. Now it's my turn to return the favor. You have been my best friend first. I really have never had to worry about anything with me. You take care of me greatly. I could never repay you for the things you have done for me.

I am thankful because more than anything you have inspired me to push to be better. Throughout the course of our relationship, we started out as friends and quickly became more than that. Without that first day we met, without me choosing OU, without me choosing meteorology as a major, I would have never come to love someone more than myself. There are not enough words in this world to describe how thankful I am of you.

You graduate in a matter of months and I will never be able to tell you how terrified I am of that day. Ultimately, I know you have to leave and get on with your life. I know this day is the most exciting time for you, but it is the day I am dreading most. It means that our time together will become short and more cherish-able. This is the time where we will shine together. I can't wait to see the next chapter for us and how we will continue to grow as a couple.

To my best friend: I can't wait to stand by your side through all of this, to support you through all your adventures and be your biggest fan!

To my boyfriend: I love you and the journey is just beginning for us. We have had some rough patches regardless of them, I will always be there through thick and thin for you.

I cannot be more thankful to have my two favorite people in one person. Not everyone is so lucky to have someone like that, and I do, with you I have it all. I love you.

Founders Of Color: Rec Room's Dre Taylor On What Blackness Can Look Like And Not Working For Free

"It mattered to me that when we were depicting racial diversity for Rec Room, we showed the broad spectrum of what Blackness can look like."

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.

@lilyjmoe

CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

I Went To Disney For The First Time Since COVID-19 And It's Officially The Cleanest Place On Earth

I stopped focusing on the pandemic simply because, for the first time in months, I felt safe.

After a few months of self-quarantining, becoming suspicious of every cough, and blowing through masks like a medical school student, restrictions due to the pandemic are easing up a bit and businesses are warily reopening. While these public spaces may look the same on the outside, the way they function and operate is vastly different than a few months ago.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.
