5 Reasons I’m Thankful For My Big, My Partner In Crime

What would I do without my big sister?

To my most beautiful big and my perfect best friend, thank you for inspiring me and giving me all of your love. God only knows what I would do without you by my side. There are so many reasons as to why I love you and am thankful for you. This piece is for you.

1. She spoils me rotten.

Clothes, food, Knick knacks and surprise deliveries rained down on me for the whole week of the big/little reveal. Everything I would have picked and better my big gifted for me. I couldn’t have been luckier to have met a person with such fashion sense, style, and class.

Truly, my dear, you outdid yourself. Let’s not forget about the post big little splurges. Our food runs, nail appointments and shopping trips are nothing short of perfect.

2. She has my back.

For every menial complaint, monumental meltdown, and lengthy venting session my big has been there to endure it all. Her patience and her poise, her temperament, and her compassion gave me more than enough strength to overcome any obstacle I faced.

She’s put every issue in perspective and taught me to take life as it goes. And anyone who wronged me was facing an even bigger threat than me; my big, of course.

3. She is my partner in crime.

We scheme like it’s our job, we turn into CIA detective agents when necessary and we fool around like there is no tomorrow. There is nothing better than concocting some sort of devious plan just for the fun of it.

4. She is a life saver at all times.

If its 2 a.m. and I'm in the middle of a forest, I know my big is one of the few people who would come in a second to save me. Anytime, anyplace with anyone, she’s there. And for the less urgent, but just as valued fashion emergency’s, she simply never lets me down.

5. She revealed a part of me I didn’t know was missing.

Every day she teaches me something new about myself and about life. Her work ethic proves that hard work is always rewarding, and that the rough patches are worth persevering. She shows me the potential in myself and always encourages me to be the best person I can be.

She displays how brutal honesty with everything is fundamental in a friendship. Lastly, she captures life in its fullest form and enjoys the perks when they exist.

Why Your College Best Friend Is 'Your Person'

In college, you meet that one special person who will always be there for you.

In college, you meet that one special person who will always be there for you. I know what you're thinking — it's a guy, right? No way, it's a girl. A girl who will be there even when you feel like you have nobody.

Here are six reasons why your college best friend is "your person."

1. No matter the boy drama, she'll always be there to tell you they are stupid.

2. You hate the same people, and you know they would help you hide the body if need be.

3. Everybody knows if she is sad or in a bad mood, so are you.

4. When they are mean, you know it's only because they stayed up all night watching Netflix and you are the only one who can understand them.

5. They are the only one who agrees that if there is no food at an event, you both are leaving.

6. They will always come before everybody, and even if you are thousands of miles apart from each other, she will still be your person.

A Letter Of Appreciation To My AV Family

For one last time before graduation...SAAAAATV!

To the people in AV that have become a second family to me, thank you. Thank you for the amazing high school memories, thank you for putting up with my dad jokes, and most of all, thank you for being my best friends.

Mara Hashuga

As a timid, awkward, shy freshman, I came up to AV. I didn't know many of the people but that changed pretty fast. Now, I'm close with the entire group including alumni that already graduated.

Mara Hashuga

Being a part of this group definitely requires a good attitude, motivation, and a lot of hard work, but in return, I got some pretty amazing friends and maybe a few perks.

I'm super excited to graduate, but I have to say, AV is probably what I will miss the most. Whether it's the fun pranks we play on each other, the "counseling sessions," decorating lockers, or just the overall atmosphere, I know this is something I will really miss being a part of, so I'll definitely be back...a lot.

Mara Hashuga

I've made a lot of friends that I would have never even known had it not been for AV. Like I said, AV is basically family to me and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone with that opinion; any member of AV, current or alumni, will tell you that you will create an unbreakable bond with so many people because of this group. We definitely argue enough, but that's what families do. We argue and then the next day it's back to normal and we are sitting there laughing about something with each other.

Mara Hashuga

While I really joke with you guys a lot about how annoying you are, and while you do it right back to me, I know that I couldn't ask for a better group of people to have spent my high school years with.

So instead of our normal 'senior sign off' in the group chat, I'm giving mine right here.

I want all of my friends to know how much I will miss every single one of you (yes, even you cory), but don't for a second think I won't be back, because let's face it, Susky isn't much of a drive. (Hopefully you guys didn't think it'd be that easy to get rid of me!)

So, for one last time before I graduate...SAAAAATV!
