Dear Best Friend, Thank You For Everything

Dear Best Friend, Thank You For Everything

Thank you for everything throughout the years.

Kia Isherwood

Nine years ago, you asked me to go to Michael Jackson's “This Is It” with you. Nine years ago, we scheduled weekly playdates. Nine years ago, you became my best friend. There are so many memories that come to mind when I think of our friendship.

All the sleepovers where we would sleep in your living room watching tv and movies for hours, just laughing our heads off. All the times we went ghost hunting because we thought for sure there was paranormal activity going on, especially in your crawl space. And, the time we went to Minneapolis with my grandparents and had a blast at the Judy Garland museum. Like I said, so many memories that we could name off the top of our head.

Instead of naming off every memory that we have ever made throughout these nine years, I wanted to thank you. Thank you for everything you have done for me. You were there for me when I felt as though I had no one. You were the shoulder I could cry on after all those guys that had hurt me. You were also there for all my happy news.

You have never turned me down when I needed you, and I can’t tell you how lucky I am. I appreciate you so much and you deserve so much more, way more; and you may not see that or maybe you do, but I hope one day, you get just that.

You are the most selfless, caring, spontaneous, outgoing, hardworking, girl boss and woman I have ever met. I look up to you for how much motivation you truly have.

As all best friends, we have had our fair shares of ups and downs. I think our friendship is so meaningful because we have gotten through those downs. No matter the situation, we have gotten through it and I think it really has made us and our friendship stronger.

You have become more than my best friend. You have become my other half and my sister. I wouldn’t want anyone else by my side throughout life itself.

I really don’t know where I would be if you weren’t in my life. One day, when we are old ladies, we can laugh about all our memories and shenanigans. But most importantly, I want to thank you.

You have no Idea how thankful I truly am. Thank you for being there, and thank you for being you. Thank you for all the random drives just listening to our favorite songs; thank you for going through the emo phase with me; thank you and your family for being a second home to me; and, thank you for asking me to go to the movie with you nine years ago.

Sincerely, your best friend

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
