Seeing Your Best Friend After Being Apart For Basically Forever In 60 Seconds

We all have that special someone that means more to us than anything. More than reclaiming a 4.0 GPA, more than naps, and more than pizza. For this someone, you would cross oceans, brave the unknown, and possibly kill some hairy-looking spiders.

A best friend is the family you choose and a person you couldn't imagine life without. However, sometimes you have to part for a time, whether it be something as simple as summer vacation or something as scarily adult-like as separate life paths.

The sadness that follows this split is nothing compared to the moment of pure happiness you feel when you and your best friend meet again. That first minute is one of the craziest 60 seconds mentally, but if it means seeing your best friend again after five-ever, you'll spare the intense brain power.

In honor of many more best friend pairs being united in the weeks to come, here is the break down of those 60 seconds.

1. Holy butt, there she is!!!!!!!

Giphy

2. Wait, is that actually her?

3. I'm about 94.8% sure it is, but I need that 5.2% confirmed.

4. Gah, people keep getting in the way.

5. Move, you useless people, I need to see ma BB!

6. Okay, I'm even less sure it's her now.

7. If only this person would look at me. Then I could confirm.

8. Or stop staring at this random person, at least. . .

9. MAKE EYE CONTACT WITH ME, HUMAN!!!

10. No, that is definitely her.

11. Aw, she's wearing that shirt I bought her for Christmas!

12. Heh, she doesn't even like One Direction. LOL, she was soooo confused!

13. She like, "I'm not wearing something with Harry Style's face on it."

14. Excuse me, ma'am. You're wearing Harry Style's face.

Giphy

15. Wasn't there a One D song on the radio earlier in the car?

16. Oh yeah, def. "Best Song Ever."

17. . . .and we danced all night, to the best song ever. . .

18. Focus, brain. The love of your life approaches, and you're thinking about One Direction.

19. Ridiculous.

20. Did she cut her hair?

21. Did she lose weight? Did she gain weight?

22. Oh, no. It's been so long since we've seen each other, I can't remember her body mass!

Giphy

23. It's cool. No need to panic.

24. She can't have changed that much, right?

25. I mean, it's been like three months.

26. That's only 12 weeks.

27. 12 weeks is nothing in best friend land.

28. Nope, I have nothing to worry about.

29. Nothing. At. All.

30. What if she doesn't like donuts anymore?

Giphy

31. What if she's wearing that One Direction shirt non-ironically?

32. What if she doesn't want to do Wine Wednesdays with me anymore?

33. Or stress dates at IHOP?

34. What if she got a new best friend while we were apart?

35. Someone named something like Cheryl who has strawberry-scented hair and her life together.

36. And backstage passes to One Direction.

37. She'd be all, "Yeah, Zayn and I go waaaay back!"

Giphy

38. Freaking Cheryl.

39. No, I won't allow it. Cheryl can find another best friend.

40. This one's mine.

41. And I would fight for her, hands down.

42. If I had to choose between cake and her, I would probably choose her.

43. Okay, I definitely would choose her.

44. Can't laugh at Vine comps with cake.

45. So, take that, Cheryl.

46. You'd probably choose 1D over her, wouldn't you.

47. You don't deserve her anyways.

48. She's too good for you.

49. AHHH, SHE'S ALMOST WITHIN HUGGING DISTANCE!!!

50. I'm beyond ready for this best friend hug.

Giphy

51. Aw, look at her!

52. She's smiling! And laughing!

53. Damn it, she's crying!

54. Damn it, now I'm crying!

Giphy

55. If this were a movie, the lights would dim and "Time Of My Life" would start playing.

56. Is it too cheesy to sprint the rest of the way?

57. Probably, but I'M DOING IT ANYWAYS!

58. Gah, we're freaking blubbering messes.

59. But, if I have to be a mess, I'm glad I'm a mess with her.

60. Ah, I missed you, you crazy kid.

Giphy

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.

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.

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.
