8 Fake Friends That I Don't Need, End Of Discussion

Friendships are a highly underrated and unacknowledged relationship. While everyone is talking about the romantic kind of relationship, the one kind of relationship that has seen you through all the memorable and what you thought at the time was the worst thing to ever happen to you in your whole life moments is still where it has always been. Friendships are just as powerful as loving yourself.

Loving yourself is a whole other kind of complex concept just because people are complicated. This is also why friendships have their own ups and downs. Some survive and some just fade away, slowly or just as soon as they arrived.

One of the things I am thankful for every day is having met my best friends that will continue to be my best friends for the rest of my life. They know who they are, but just like failed relationships, I had to go through some rough patches to find the friendship that really works for me.

And there are different kinds of friendships. None are like the others.

Fake friends are something I never considered ever having, but I ended up surrounded by them.

The kind of fake friends I had:

The ones who only friend you to steal your man

The ones that make drama even at your expense

The ones that never got over high school level drama: lies, backstabbing, rumors, the basics.

The ones that dump you when you dump your boyfriend

The ones that friend you to pass a class

The ones who friend you to sleep with you

The ones that friend you only to date your friend

The ones who feel sorry for you and so they keep you around...but you were never friends to start with


I wish all the fake friends I had before all the best in life. Losing all of you made me realize who I am and that anyone who wouldn't accept me for being the real me is not worth my time. I invested a lot in our friendship not realizing it never meant as much to you as it did to me.

But in the end, you all are fake friends. Fake friends, I don't need them.

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.
