Find A Best Friend Who...

Some people search their whole lives for a friend like mine.

Find A Best Friend Who...

The other day, I was asked to speak about my best friend and the relationship that we have. I have many people that I would consider within my circle of "best friends" but only one woman holds the title and the hot mess that comes with it and has done so consistently for over twelve years now.

This past summer I commemorated all of these years of friendship with a tattoo of my favorite piece of her artwork, so I guess you could say it's getting pretty serious.

As someone who talks to her best friend every single day, works hard to be more like her best friend and tells everyone about her best friend, I consider myself somewhat of an authority on the qualities you should look for in your person.

So find a best friend who...

Find a best friend who makes you feel like their favorite color. Even if it's your least favorite color in the world, when you're with someone and your soul feels like their favorite color, warm and kind and full-keep them.

Find a best friend who thinks that you are the funniest girl in the world and lets you make a scene in target over the $1 section coffee mugs that you already have too many of.

Find a best friend that will paint your nails and bake cookies and drink coffee and cry with you all within the span of an hour.

Find a best friend who is always down for the next crazy adventure. Find a best friend who inspires you and makes you want to do better –– in whatever regard.

Find a best friend who is never afraid to call you out on your bullshit, but will support you through whatever crazy thing you do.

Find a best friend who is fearless-in fashion, with men, in school.

Find a best friend that makes you brave.

I'm so lucky to have an Emma in my life, and I hope everyone finds theirs.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
