A Thank You To My Freshman Year Girl Gang And Future Bridesmaids

How did I survive 18 years of my life without you?

A Thank You To My Freshman Year Girl Gang And Future Bridesmaids
Emily Berdan

As this school year comes to a close, I can’t even imagine what it's going to be like not having my girl gang along side me 24/7 like it was the past nine months. After finals are over, we will have to endure three long months apart.

For some reason, the girls you meet your first year of college are extremely special. One week, you don’t even know their name, and the next week, you can probably tell a stranger about their likes and dislikes, their boy drama, their food preferences, their family life, and even where they got the clothes they were wearing yesterday. They could easily do the same for you.

You don’t know how it happens or when it happens, but something clicks, and as cheesy as it sounds, it was meant to be. You have a lifelong friendship within weeks of meeting.

To my personal girl gang,

Most importantly, thank you for all the clothes you let me wear. I don’t know what I’m going to do with only one closet for a while instead of eight. Thank you also, for having such good style. I got way too many compliments on clothes that weren’t mine, so thanks for that. I also learned some good fashion tips, like “less Gap and more Forever 21." Thank you also for always returning clothes back to me the day after, never losing them or getting them dirty. That’s when you know it’s real.

Can’t forget all the late night pizza orders or jimmy johns delivery on a Tuesday at 2 a.m. just because. Thank you for always putting in money for pizza — teamwork makes the dream work! We need to make sure we continue with those into next year.

Thank you, because I’m not sure if I would have made it back home some nights without you guys. Having a girl gang like this means no one goes out alone, no one walks home alone, and no one goes to the bathroom alone. Sticking together is not only safe and fun but then you don’t have 10 girls running around a frat house all calling each other trying to find one another.

Thanks, (I think?), for waking me up from my naps when you guys would go eat because you knew I wouldn’t eat alone. As much as it sucks to be woken up from a nap, at least I didn’t have to eat alone.

Thank you for the weekly popcorn and chick-flick movies nights. Sometimes you just need a good cry, and I’m glad we could all experience those nights together.

Thank you that even after the hardest days, I could come home and be laughing within seconds of walking in the door. We knew when each other needed space, needed someone to talk to, needed to cry or just needed some ice cream. I can't tell you how many times when one of us had a bad day, we would all pile in one car and drive to get ice cream super late at night. One moment you hate the world and the next you're jammed packed into a car with nine other girls singing, laughing and eating ice cream. Those kind of nights were my favorite.

Last but not least, thank you for being the most amazing girl gang. I am so thankful for each and every one of you and I can't imagine my life without you. Thank you for becoming a lifelong friend and my future bridesmaids after a week of meeting. I don’t know if it was luck or fate that put us together, but one thing I do know is God blessed me with more than I could ever ask for.

Cheers to the last nine months full of so many memories, laughs and stories... as people always say, the best is yet to come.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
