My Best Friend Is The Love Of My Life

"And then my soul saw you and it kind of went, 'oh, there you are. I've been looking for you.'"

My Best Friend Is The Love Of My Life

She is kind. She is passionate. She is caring. She is my better half.

I would say this isn’t a love story about two people who began as friends to slowly grow closer and closer to eventually realize they are in love, but it is exactly that kind of story. The only difference is that the love story does not end in marriage or some tragic falling out; it ends with a friendship so deep that the two friends cannot imagine life without one another.

No, I am not in love with my best friend. Yes, my best friend is the love of my life. But not in a romantic way – in an “I can’t live without you, you’re my one and only and I need you forever” kind of way.

She is everything that I am not: nice, selfless, good with money, strategic, excellent at science, funny, hilariously un-athletic, half Mexican and not confrontational at all. I love her for our differences.

She also brings out the very best in me. She tells me when I am being mean, she lets me know when I need to study, and she cuts me off when I have spent too much money. Not to mention, she is already saving up for the Jeep we are buying when we grow up.

She is everything that I could possibly want and need in a life partner.

Never in a million years would I have envisioned her as being the one. We went to school together and never really talked. She would wear groufits and sweatpants to school while I had my dresses and earrings picked out the night before. She was on the poms team while I was a cheerleader. She had her friends and I had mine.

Then college rolled around and we became sort of friends through a mutual friend. Next thing we know we are roommates and forced to like each other, except nothing was forced at all. We kind of fell like anyone else falls in love – slowly at the beginning and then head-first all at once.

We synchronize dance, we pop back zits, we cry, we eat (a lot), we complain, we nap, we binge watch Netflix, we go on dates – we are one another’s everything.

Honestly, I hope to find a guy someday who makes me feel the way she does.

I am certain I am not the only person who has found love with their best friend. Best friends share this bond that no one else really understands or could even attempt to comprehend. Best friends are our Nemo. If they get lost in the great, big ocean, we find them. You and your best friends are more than friends; you are like a small, powerful gang that takes on the world together, one glass of wine and outfit change at a time.

Your best friend is you; you are your best friend. Together you are unstoppable and apart you are lost. She loves you and you love her, forever and always, ‘til death do you part.

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.
