Dear College Best Friend For Life

Dear College Best Friend For Life

To my mental breakdown buddy, my inspiration, and my future maid of honor.


Dear My College Best Friend For Life,

If anyone has ever seen us walk down the street, we're probably either laughing, crying, or showing each other a meme on one of our phones. We're obnoxious, emotional, and definitely crazier than your average pair of best friends. However, I wouldn't change it for the world.

I am so incredibly lucky to have already found my person at college, especially when I was so nervous that nobody else would understand my ridiculous jokes and Chipotle addiction. In the span of four months, you have become my rock, the person I run to for everything. And simply put, there's just no one who could ever take your spot.

Although we fight like a married couple, I know you care about my wellbeing and are looking out for me.

When you yell at me to not text my ex at 1 a.m, I know you're trying to save me from a disaster. Even when I make a mistake and seem like I hate you, I don't. I just hate you because how in the world can you always be right? Although you might also make mistakes as well, I'll always call you out on it and make sure that we're being healthy in every way possible. Everyone knows that your honest friend is the one who cares the most, and you are brutally honest.

There are so many inside jokes and laughs we've shared that I'll cherish forever.

Nothing's better than getting a text from you at 2 p.m. to tell me you can't stop thinking about the Bee Movie script. You are incredibly funny and we just so happen to have the same sense of humor where we just laugh at every single thing that happens to us. Our lives are the biggest jokes ever, and there's no one else I could imagine laughing about it with. Even when it seems like my life is falling apart, you're always there to make some inappropriate joke to add to our quote list.

You are my inspiration in many different forms.

When I tell you that your dedication to school, your love for people you care about and your fashion style inspire me to want to be a better person, I mean it. There's no one else who would be down to go to Bird Library with me and study until the sun rises. You motivate me all the time and remind me that even when there are hardships, there will be good things coming soon after.

You have always been there for me.

You made going through the rough patches easier. There's nothing like a deep talk at 2 a.m that makes me feel less alone. You have heard my cry, seen me break down, and accepted me for who I am regardless. Listening to me speak about my heartbreaks must've been a bore, but you always kept your ears open and gave me the honest advice.

With all the hardships you've been put through, you should be in a mental ward right now. But, somehow, you manage to get through it and come out the other end smiling.

With your ex-boyfriend living a floor below you, you have somehow managed to deal with it better than I ever could. Despite all the ups and downs you've also had with schoolwork, you stay on track and focused on your goal, and once you're dedicated, you don't quit until it's yours. Although we both have about one mental breakdown a week, you always wipe the tears right after and push through it.

There are so many adventures to go on and I can't wait to share that with you.

These next four years are going to be crazy, and knowing that I have you to conquer all of this with makes me anticipate it more. Here's to more Chipotle runs, more Bird Library nights, and more espresso shots that might make us go into a-fib.

Life would not be the same without you. Thanks for being my emotional tether these past few months. One day, I'll be standing at your wedding, talking about all the crazy things we did in college, and I hope your future husband doesn't divorce you right then and there. Let's get this bread.

Love always,

Your Absolutely Insane Best Friend

To My Best Friend Who Taught Me What True Friendship Is, I Can't Thank You Enough

"To the person who will love you endlessly, love her with kindness and understanding."

Dear Best Friend,

You have been a part of my life for quite some time now. You have seen my good, bad, and ugly sides and have stuck by my side through it all. I don't know if I could ever find the words to truly thank you for everything your friendship has given me, but I am definitely going to try.

Our lives have taken some twist and turn these past few years, but we have stayed strong through it all.

Thank you for judging me just the right amount.

Throughout our friendship, I have made some very questionable decisions. A lot of people would say "thanks for never judging me," but I feel like everyone needs a best friend who's going to tell them how it is, to tell them when they are about to make a bad decision or how to avoid something worse from happening. You have always told me how it is (even when I don't always want to hear it), but I know that I can come to you whenever I need someone to set me straight.

You're always down to do nothing with me.

I think that you are the one person that I can call up to hang out and do absolutely nothing with and have a good time. From the nights sitting in and playing card games to ordering Chinese food and watching an entire Netflix series while I dance around with the cat: I know that we could do anything, and nothing together and it would be fun.

But also, you're always down to get lit with me.

I swear one day we will be two old moms at a bar drinking vodka crans and laughing about the stupid shit our husbands and children do. You're always down to go out and have a good time. Even if everyone else we're with is miserable, we find a way to laugh at ourselves.

You are one of the few constant things in my life.

I've lost a lot of friends in my life, but you have stayed by my side through everything. I can't remember the last time we actually fought about anything, but even when we do we can't stay mad at each other for more than a day. I know we will be in each other's lives until we literally keel over.

I want you yo know that you're the strongest person I know.

You've dealt with things that not many people go through ever in their life. You have always been so mature, and you handle everything with grace. You inspire me every day with your goals and successes and I am so proud of you and all of your accomplishments.

Above all else, you deserve the world.

It's so easy to get caught up in your own mind and think that you deserve the things that happen to you, but please know that the only thing you deserve is happiness. Please settle for nothing short of that. It may take a bit to find your happiness, but I will be there every step of the way. You're a remarkable human being, and I want nothing but the best for you.

To the person who will hold your heart someday, please do not break it. To the person who may wrong you, you will regret it forever. To the person who will love you endlessly, love her with kindness and understanding.

You, my best friend, future bridesmaid, godmother of my children, the person to bail me out of jail, the one who lets me cry on their couch for twelve hours,

I love you.

I will cherish our friendship forever. Thank you for being you.

Love always,

Your best friend.

Sandra Bullock Is More Than Just The Lady From Bird Box

How dare you call her just the lady...?


Sandra Bullock is the lead actress of the new Netflix movie Bird Box. This movie has received so many good reviews. Also, there has been memes on social media about the movie. It's become very popular, so even people who haven't seen the movie know about the movie. For example, a meme would say:


However, there was this one disrespectful tweet.

This generation does not know who Sandra Bullock is. This is wrong because Sandra Bullock amazing. People watched Bird Box and discovered who Sandra Bullock was. I watched Bird Box because of Sandra Bullock. She is the reason why I had a great childhood. Let's not forget about all the movies that made her famous. There's many: A Time to Kill, Hope Floats, Practical Magic, Miss Congeniality, Two Weeks Notice, Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous, The Proposal (one of my favorite movies), The Blind Side, The Heat, Gravity, and Ocean's 8.

All these movies are the best of the best and this generation needs to watch these movies to realize that Sandra Bullock isn't just the lady from Bird Box. She is an extraordinary actress and human being, and her greatness should be recognized. Period.
