To My College BFF, As She Starts A New Chapter In Her Life

To Liz: my homegirl, my first college best friend, and the best dog petter.

I love you so much.

I miss you so much.

And I'm so sad that you won't be returning to West Chester U.

There's a lot of things I wish I said while we were still roommates. There's a lot of things I wish I could say now that we aren't. It took me a while to process that I won't see you on campus anymore. We won't have our late night laughs about memes online or write on our whiteboard calendars when the therapy dogs come to Sykes. We won't get both Starbucks AND Chick-fil-A just to survive studying chemistry in the library. We'll never freak out when there's a bug in our room or live in 114 again. And yeah, that sucks really bad that we won't have those experiences again. But that doesn't mean you can get rid of me that easily. (Besides, I already have you listed as a bridesmaid.) And although coordinating our summer schedules have been tricky, I know we'll work it out and have the best kickass weekend ever.

I wish I said how much I appreciated you. I can't tell you how much I appreciated your help with chem (even though neither of us really knew what we were doing).

I wish I said that I'm sorry. My side of the room was always a mess and I filled our fridge with too much of my stuff. I really don't know how you dealt with me.

I wish I told you how much you meant to me. You were my first real true friend at West Chester and true friend for life. I remember reading a quote online that said to meet your bridesmaids in college, not your husband. And boy did I strike gold meeting you. My sophomore year and all the highlights wouldn't have been the same with you. You are my best friend for life.

I know choosing not to come back to West Chester U was a really hard decision for you to make. I know things for you and your family haven't been easy lately. But I also know that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to and you're great at everything. So although this situation isn't ideal in your eyes, you can do this and I am so proud of you. So unbelievably proud.

Come down to West Chester whenever you want and I'll make sure to have that swirl bread in the freezer for you.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
