To The Best Friend I Miss

I’d like to think we could pick up our friendship where we left it.


Hi, how have you been?

I miss you. I know that we haven’t talked in a while, but I still care about you. I hope that you’re doing well. Do you ever think about me? Sometimes it seems like I’m just somebody that you used to know.

Do you remember all the memories? All the movie marathons, dinner dates, and crazy antics. Some of my favorite memories were spent with you. You were so much a part of me, yet slowly we grew apart.

Sometimes I’m afraid that I did something terribly wrong that I don’t even remember or realize. I want to apologize if I was the one that ended our friendship. I never meant to hurt you.

Other times I’m afraid that we were really just temporary or situational friends. Were friends because it was convenient for us? I’d like to argue not, but sometimes the question crosses my mind.

Even though I like to reflect on what went wrong, I don’t think I’ll ever find out what happened. I don’t want to blame either of us for losing touch, though.

We just did.

We both became very busy when college started and distance made things hard. We were both experiencing our new lives and took our own paths. I needed time to grow and find myself, just like I’m sure you did.

I see that you’re doing well now…you look happy. I miss being the one who shared in your happiness and knew your problems, secrets, and dreams. Now, we both have new friends who get to experience all life’s exciting things.

I’m not jealous of your new friends, but I wish that I was still one of your best friends.

I know we tried to talk again, but something seemed different. We slowly texted each other back with less than five words, and our conversations didn’t go beyond casual talk. I don’t want to imagine that we’ve changed so much that we can’t find anything to talk about anymore. I’d like to think that if we really gave it a shot we could pick up right where we left our friendship.

If you ever need a friend, I’ll always be there for you.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Naya Rivera Is Missing, And She Deserves SO Much More Than Being Labeled 'Big Sean's' Ex'

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
