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.

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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
