6 Signs That Your Friend Is Absolutely Crazy, In The Very Best Way

They might be crazy, but you love 'em.

Don't you hate going out with your loud, outgoing, sometimes obnoxious, often wildly free-spirited friend? The one that doesn't pay attention to any of the social norms, has no problem walking up to the guy at the club telling him that you (yes, you, shy friend) want to dance with him, or the one that is peeing outside the club just ten feet away from the bouncers. The ones that just stick a fork in your birthday cake to grab a bite. That wear their girlfriend's glasses because they can't find their own.

They have no problem being themselves, whatever that they mean, even if it sometimes does seem... unconventional. They usually are just living in the moment, living in their present and doing what seems right to them. Sometimes you might even catch yourself admiring how genuine they are to themselves. It's not hard to notice when they are around, as they are ever living for the moment.

1. They go hard no matter where you are.

It doesn't matter if you're at your little brother's baseball game or at the pep rally, they will be crazy, make a scene and bring as much attention to you as possible. It could be the most boring game in the world, but you know you will have a good time when they are there. Or an embarrassing time if this person is your mom.

2. Their reactions are always authentic.

The good thing is you know that they're always honest. They'd never try to impress you and you know that their reaction is always the real thing since they can't lie for the life of them. They might overreact sometimes, but it's with good intention.

3. They make the best coworkers.

Work is always entertaining if you have a personality like this there, as they'll be blunt and upfront about whatever they're thinking, which is usually hilarious. You know that they'll always keep it real with you.

4. They feel no need to answer to anyone.

If you ask them questions about their personal life, proceed with caution since you will most likely not get a straight answer and they will respond with something vague. If they are doing well you'll probably know it, but if they aren't, they are masters of entertainment and therefore changing the subject.

5. It's always the little things that excite them.

You could be at the mall shopping and a headband could be $4 instead of $8 and they'll get excited about it. It could be that class ended at 6:58 instead of 7:00 and they can find gratitude in that.

6. They can make any situation awkward.

Because they can just be themselves so well with no cares, they have no issue intervening in situations that they really could be minding their business about. They will photobomb, prank and be silly at any appropriate, or inappropriate, time.

These friends are people to be grateful for. They make you feel more comfortable being yourself, too, which is always a blessing in this superficial, surface level society.

Why Your Grandma Is Your Biggest Blessing In Life

Because nobody loves you more than she does.

There are many people in your life you are thankful for: Mom, Dad, siblings, cousins, best friends, teachers, neighbors, you name it. You are grateful to have people who constantly support you, who pick you up when you're down and love you unconditionally. But the one person who stands out among the rest of them is your grandma.

Ever since you were little, you and your grandma have always had a special connection. Going over to Grandma's house for the night was something you looked forward to. She knew how to entertain you at your best and worst moments. No matter what you did together, you loved it. Being with your grandma wasn't like being at home or with your parents – it was better. You went to the park, made cookies, went out to dinner, got a “sweet treat" at the mall, played Go Fish, took a bubble bath for as long as you wanted and got way too much dessert than you should have. You did things you weren't supposed to do, but Grandma didn't stop you. Because at Grandma's house there were no rules, and you didn't have to worry about a single thing. Being with Grandma was the true epitome of childhood. She let you be you. She always made sure you had the best time when you were with her, and she loved watching you grow up with a smile on your face.

The older you got, your weekend excursions with your grandma weren't as frequent, and you didn't get to see her as much. You became more and more busy with school, homework, clubs, sports, and friends. You made the most out of your time to see her, and you wished you could be with her more. Although you were in the prime of your life, she mattered even more to you the older you both became. You were with your friends 24/7, but you missed being with your grandma. When the time rolled around, and you got the chance to spend time with her, she told you never to apologize. She wanted you to go out, have fun and enjoy life the way it makes you happy.

Reflecting back on these moments with your grandma, you realize how truly special she is to you. There is no one who could ever compare to her nor will there ever be. All your life, there is no one who will be as sweet, as caring, as sincere or as genuine as her. Even though you're all grown up now, there are things about your grandma that never changed from when you were a kid. She still takes you out for your favorite meal because she knows how important eating out means to you. She writes you letters and sends you a $5 bill every now and then because she knows you're a hard-working college student with no money. She still helps you with all of your Christmas shopping because she knows it's your tradition. She still asks what's new with your young life because hearing about it makes her day and she still loves you to no end. Your grandma is your biggest blessing (whether you knew it or not), and she always will be no matter what.

Turning 'I'm Sorry' Into 'Thank You'

A process of self-awareness I think everyone should consider.

27

My entire life I've been apologetic.

I use apologies far too often in my daily life. Whether it be to someone holding the door for me even though I'm still ten feet from the door or my interrupting the custodian cleaning my hall's bathroom. From stepping on my friend's toes to bumping into someone in line at Starbucks.

I think as children, we are taught that apologizing for our actions wipes away the consequences from those actions. In past relationships, I have relied on apologies to make myself feel better about how I've made others feel instead of actually using them to improve my actions.

For me, it has just become something ingrained in my personality. I've noticed that it has become a reflex rather than a conscious response. What I've realized recently is that this is something I can change.

Apologies are helpful when mending hurtful or accidental situations, especially when you find yourself in the wrong, but not everything deserves an, "I'm sorry," and using that phrase for every accidental encounter or mistake, in my eyes, lessens its impact.

If we all use, "I'm sorry," for every minor inconvenience we cause, the words become less meaningful.

I have read about this online a lot lately, and it is suggested that instead of apologizing, we should give thanks.

If I'm late for a date with my friends, the old me would've said, "I'm SO sorry, guys!" But the new me will say, "Thank you for waiting for me."

Instead of apologizing to our (wonderful) custodians, I'll say, "Thank you so much for the work you do here every day."

If someone is kind enough to hold the door for me, even though I'm nowhere near it, I won't apologize for inconveniencing them. Instead, I will take the time to appreciate the fact that they were kind enough to do so, despite my distance from the door.

I think that this is a process everyone can benefit from, so long as they are willing to be conscious of their thoughts and the words they speak. By replacing, "I'm sorry," with an expression of gratitude, we can develop a more positive mindset and reserve apologies for situations that deserve them.

We can also use those rare apologies to remind us to improve our actions; if we hurt someone, we don't get to decide that we didn't or invalidate their feelings. We can then meaningfully apologize and allow it to inherently change our behavior.
